It was created in 1975 during the construction of the associated track section and should be opened a few years later. Initially, they should provide the residents of a large apartment blocks, which should be built on the site of the Tushino airfield, with an underground connection. Since this project was later discarded, the station was not built. In their system, only the station hall was built in the shell, which can be seen from the moving train on the basis of the columns to date, outputs, however, were not built. There are now plans to complete the station and then to give her the name Spartak Stadium, as is to be built a new football stadium for the club Spartak Moscow in their area.

Depot and vehicles

The line has two depots, for the trains - which has been in the line opening Vykhino depot and in 1975 went into operation Depot Planernoje. When the trains that are used on the line, it is 8- car trains on the older series E or their modifications Еж3/Ем508Т. Between 2003 and 2011, all trains of the line of a major overhaul, the capacity of the vehicles were subjected to, among other things, aims to increase with simultaneous cost savings compared to the otherwise mature purchase of new vehicles. Thus, in all intermediate wagons the superfluous here cab cabins were dismantled and created in its place additional standing room inside the wagons. In addition, its interior was in the modernization of trains renewed largely, especially new seats were installed and changed the interior lighting of the old bulbs to fluorescent lamps. The expected useful life of the old cars was extended through the modernization of 15 years.



  • December 31, 1966: Opening of the line. The 12.9 km long south-eastern branch of Taganskaya to Vykhino (then Schdanowskaja ) goes together with the depot in operation. The station Vykhino is applied above ground as the only station on the line.
  • January 3, 1971: The line is extended to Moscow's historical way. The new sub- section is 2.1 km long and includes the new station Kitai -Gorod, then Ploshchad Nogina. This station is a novelty for the Moscow Metro is: it contains four tracks and two separate station halls and offers passengers the first time a Platform same transfer possibility, here between lines 6 and 7
  • December 30, 1972: The north-western branch of the line - 7,2 km from Barrikadnaya to Oktjabrskoje Pole - is opened. The next three years the two branches operate as two separate lines.
  • December 17, 1975: The 4.1 km long gap between Barrikadnaya and Ploshchad Nogina is closed. From now on, ie, the line Schdanowsko - Krasnopresnenskaja line.
  • December 30, 1975: The last Northwest extension to Planernaya goes into operation. It is 9.6 km long and includes four new stations, a partially finished in the shell station ( Wolokolamskaja, see above stations ) and a new depot.


On the line, two stations were renamed later: The station Ploshchad Nogina in Kitai -Gorod (1990 ) and the station Schdanowskaja in Vykhino (1989). Since the station name Schdanowskaja one of the two " namesake " of the line, which was called by then " Schdanowsko - Krasnopresnenskaja ", the line was at the same time with its renaming itself renamed; so that it was given its present name.

Expansion plans

The northwestern Außenast the line is at the moment completely. An extension is planned just to the southeast. For the next few years, the introduction of an additional station is provided to Schulebino, which has been announced for 2012. Very long term, the line could be extended further to the satellite city Ljuberzy.


The Tagansko - Krasnopresnenskaja line is an average of the most used - and therefore also the most congested - line of the Moscow Metro. The trains are on weekdays at peak times hopelessly overcrowded, which is not least due to the fact that the line is very heavily used by commuters from the Moscow region. This leads in particular during the morning rush to complete obstruction of the terminal Vykhino, which has a transition to and from the local trains as well as numerous overland bus routes. A partial relief of this station is hoped with the planned extension to Schulebino, but otherwise the capacity of the line is barely increasing.
