Shchyolkovskaya (Russian: Щёлковская) is a Moscow Metro station on the Arbatsko-Pokrovskaya Line. It is an Eastern terminus of the line, it opened in 1963.

Name[edit]

Its name owes to the location near the Shchyolkovo highway.

Building[edit]

It was built at 8 metres (26 ft) below the ground to the standardized column tri-span design, which was commonly used from the 1960s till 1990s; the pillars are faced with dark green marble. The walls were originally tiled by yellow and black ceramic tiles, but a modern metalloplastic cladding was applied in 2002, giving the station a cleaner look; the architects were Ivan Taranov and Nadezhda Bykova.[1]

Traffic[edit]

The station is highly[quantify] loaded due to nearby Moscow Central Bus Terminal.
