A few dozen metres below the top, the station is being built to replace an old train yard that had a capacity of over 12,000 people.
The station will house new classrooms and classrooms will be able to accommodate 20,000 students, a spokesperson for Russia’s National Railway, Rosselkhoznadzor, told Al Jazeera.
The new train yard will have a capacity for 25,000 passengers per hour and will be built with a mix of concrete and glass, he added.
This is the train yard at the former railway yard at Kaluga, located in Russia’s far west, in Kaluga county, the southern part of the Ural region, on April 8, 2018.
