Four platform stations of the Moscow Metro

I’ve previously written about the standard interchange station design found on Soviet designed metro systems, and the non-standard platform configurations on the Moscow Metro – this time we look at the four track stations that offer cross-platform interchange.

Train arrives into Третьяковская (Tretyakovskaya) station

Кита́й-го́род (Kitay-gorod)

Kitay-gorod is located on Line 6 Kaluzhsko-Rizhskaya and Line 7 Tagansko-Krasnopresnenskaya. It consists of two separate parallel station halls, connected by a central transfer bridge, and a combined escalator vestibule at each end.

Cross-platform interchange is possible between northbound trains on the eastern platform, and between southbound trains via the western platform. For passengers wishing to travel in the opposite direction, it is required to use the transfer corridor linking the two platforms.

Третьяко́вская (Tretyakovskaya)

Tretyakovskaya is located on Line 6 Kaluzhsko-Rizhskaya and Line 8 Kalininsko-Solntsevskaya. Tretyakovskaya was originally a two platform station before the connection with Kalininskaya Line was opened in 1986.

At that time a second hall was opened, forming a cross-platform interchange.

The two halls are joined by a passage located midway along their length and also by the shared vestibule.

Каширская (Kashirskaya)

Kashirskaya is the interchange between the Kakhovskaya and the Orekhovskaya branches of the Zamoskvoretskaya line.

It consists of two parallel station halls separated by a wall, each with an independent exit to ground level, and three narrow transfer footbridges between the island platforms.

Парк Победы (Park Pobedy)

Park Pobedy is the interchange between Line 3 Arbatsko–Pokrovskaya and Line 8A Kalininsko–Solntsevskaya, as well as the deepest Moscow Metro station.

It consists of two parallel station halls, each with their own escalators to the surface, but linked by a a pair of two-aisle transfer footbridges.

It opened in 2003 as a terminus of the Arbatsko–Pokrovskaya line, with one set of tracks laying idle until the Kalininsko–Solntsevskaya line opened in 2014.

Петровско-Разумовская (Petrovsko-Razumovskaya)

Petrovsko-Razumovskaya is the interchange between Line 9 Serpukhovsko–Timiryazevskaya and Line 10 Lyublinsko–Dmitrovskaya.

And again it’s two parallel station halls, with their own escalators to the surface, but linked by pair of two-aisle transfer footbridges.
