The construction of the Eastern section of the Large Circle Line with future four stations Klenpvy Bulvar, Nagatinsky Zaton, Pechatniki, and Tekstilshiki began in 2017. The length of the double-track section is 11.4 km.

The design of the station Klenovy Bulvar was planned with the matter of the station Kolomenskoe being close. The chosen route puts Klenovy Bulvar outside of the local park, and the tunnels don’t come close to the historical objects.
The next section from Kashirskaya station to Nizegorodskaya is planned to be completed by 2022. Since 2011, Moscow has received 301.4 km of the metro lines, 145 stations have opened.
