On the morning of March 13, the Moscow Transport Ministry informedthat the developer “Donstroy” without the consent of the metro carried out drilling work on the site between the stations “Michurinskiy Prospekt” and “Aminyevskaya”. During the work, the machine drilled a hole, after which there was a release of clay and sand on the way.
This led to the fact that the section between the “Novatorskaya” and “Aminevskaya” stations was stopped for several hours for rail traffic, as it required restoration work. On the other sections of the BCL train went with extended intervals. According to department reports, the ring failure occurred around 10:26 and was eliminated in 12:25.

Which of them is involved, the deptrans did not specify. By decision of the Moscow State Construction Supervision Authority, construction on the site above the tunnel was stopped until all circumstances were clarified, the department noted.
