Ramenki station was mentioned for the first time in 1965, when the Solntsevsky radius project was introduced, which at that time was supposed to be a continuation of the Arbat-Pokrovskaya line from the Kievskaya station. However, even the general scheme from 1938 for the development of the Moscow metro includes a promise for a Frunzensky radius station, designated approximately at the same location.[citation needed]

The station was provided for by the project of prolongation in Solntsevo of the Arbat-Pokrovskaya line from the station "Park Pobedy", developed by the institute "Metrogiprotrans" in the early 1990s. In the variant of the line trace along Minskaya street and Michurinsky avenue it was offered at the intersection with Vinnytsia street, and according to the variant of the tracing through the Matveyevsky station it was to be shifted 200 meters to the south-west. In both cases, Ramenki station was offered a shallow location. For the option of building a high-speed line Mytischi-Solntsevo of the chord line passing through the projected third station "Victory Park" (perpendicular to the two constructed) and facing the axis of Michurinsky Prospekt, the station in Ramenki was excluded in order to increase the speed characteristics.[citation needed]

The Solntsevskogo radius project of the mid-2000 is based on the first of these options, to name the station at the same time offered "Vinnitsa Street". According to the Kalinin-Solntsevskaya 2011 project, currently being implemented, the station under the name "Ramenki" is located under the lawn between the passing parts of Michurinsky Prospekt near Vinnitsa Street.[citation needed]

In the fourth quarter of 2011, they fenced the construction site and construction began in April 2012.[citation needed]

On 31 May 2013 (9 years ago) (2013-05-31), the tunneling of the left distillation tunnel started from the Ramenki station in the direction of Lomonosov Avenue with the help of the Svetlana TPMK. On 15 December 2013, it was left in the dismantling cell of Lomonosov Avenue, after which the right tunnel was drilled in the opposite direction on 17 December 2013, which also ended successfully on 2 July 2014. The length of the distance between the stations is 1189 meters.[citation needed]


On 30 December 2016, Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin conducted the technical launch of the metro station "Business Center" - "Ramenki" Kalininsk-Solntsevskaya line. From the beginning of 2017, a run-in of a new site without passengers was completed, with the completion of separate parts of the stations.[citation needed]

The initial plan was to open a new site for passengers shortly after the technical launch in February 2017, but the terms of running-in of the line and commissioning work were delayed by 2.5 months.[citation needed]

The opening of the passenger section, including the Ramenki station, which was on the temporary terminal line, took place on 16 March 2017.[citation needed]
