The Myakinino Metro Station opened in 2009 at Crocus City. The launch of the station was just one of Crocus Group’s steps in integrating the satellite city of Crocus City into the larger fabric of the Moscow Region.
With the construction of the station, the Crocus Group became the only company to engage in a public-private partnership to expand the capital’s Metro system, making Myakinino the first station in all of Russia to be built with private funds.
Myakinino is also the first of the Moscow Metro stations to venture outside the limits of the city – which is effectively bound by the MKAD highway – and into the Moscow Oblast. Two passageways connect the station to the international exhibition center, Crocus Expo, and the concert facility, Crocus City Hall.
The new Metro station’s arrival coincides with the construction of an exit ramp from the internal side of the MKAD, which is part of the plan to increase the width of the highway. Together, these projects have dramatically increased Crocus City’s accessibility, ensuring smooth transit to and from the satellite city.
