NameEdit

The working name of the station was originally Ulitsa Dybenko for the street on which the station is situated. In 2013, the city changed the official name to Khovrino, to reflect the name of the municipal district, Khovrino Municipal Okrug.[5]

HistoryEdit

Various plans have existed throughout the history of the line to extend it northward.[6][7][8][9][10][11][12] The boring of 2.2 km (1.4 mi) of tunnels north from the former terminus, Rechnoy Vokzal, was completed in December 2014 by tunnel boring machine.[13] The station was originally planned to open in December[3] 2016,[14][15] but, despite construction being largely completed in 2016, the opening of Khovrino was postponed a year because of the decision to construct an intermediate station Belomorskaya.[3] In July 2019 Bellingcat researcher Aric Toler reported that the station received an online bomb threat that was posted on Twitter.[16]
