The city government decided to extend the line to Stolbovo in February 2016; an unexpected decision given that the city initially planned to extend the line only to Filatov Lug. The initial cost of the line was about 45 billion rubles. In July 2017, the city government confirmed that the extension would move forward, allowing construction to continue.
In March 2017, the city began clearing space around the planned station to accommodate the construction.
The station's working name during most of construction was Stolbovo. This derived from the former village of Stolbovo, which became part of the current settlement when it was incorporated into the City of Moscow from Moscow Oblast.
Design and LayoutEdit
Kommunarka is at the intersection of the Solntsevo-Butovo-Varshavskoye shosse highway and the Ostafyevo International Airport section of the Moscow Ring Road. It has two lobbies, one that exits across the highway via an underground pedestrian walkway, and a second that leads to a future station on the planned Kommunarskaya line.
