Some amendments to the layout of utility lines have been introduced to the project. Also a few architectural and space planning concepts have been changed, given the location of an elevated road and a pedestrian crossing between the railway terminal and the airport building.
The completion of construction of the new terminal, with a total area of over 6,000 square meters and traffic capacity of 1,500 passengers per hour, is expected before the 2019 summer season. The project provides for the construction of two additional tracks and two platforms under one roofing, as well as a four-storey building of the Aeroexpress railway terminal, which will be connected to the airport by an underground walkway.
“As of now, four tracks have already been built (previously there were only two) and two platforms (previously there was only one). Given the development of the main tracks in the future, this will allow for Aeroexpress and suburban trains to come and go according to a better schedule. This is vital as the amount of passenger traffic served by the company along this route is continuously high. We have transported nearly 2.8 million passengers since early 2018. Carrying out works does not affect the Aeroexpress timetable. All trains are provided as scheduled. Temporary roofing and a walkway have been arranged,’ said Mikhail Kovalsky, Acting CEO of Aeroexpress.
The terminal is being constructed as part of the joint project being implemented by Aeroexpress, Domodedovo Airport, and RzhD, which is aimed at developing the intermodal transport communication between the Paveletsky Rail Terminal and Domodedovo Airport. Aeroexpress is providing complete financing.
