Structural work on the viaduct until 31 July 2022 inclusive
Structural work on the viaduct at Stalingrad station, on line , will be carried out until 31 July 2022.
Why is this structural work necessary?
Lines , and all the feature structures (viaducts, pillars, arches, glass roofs, stairways, mezzanines) have stood the test of time remarkably well. However, conservation work is required to keep them structurally sound, to maintain their aesthetics and longevity and renovation work is therefore scheduled each year by station or section.
The historic viaduct of line was built in 1942 just outside Stalingrad station in the direction of Nation to create the connection with metro lines and . The underside of the structure was closed to install the connecting stairways between the lines. The two spans of the viaduct above these walls now need to be partly replaced or reinforced.
In practical terms, parts of the arches are being stripped by scraping and chipping. Rusted parts will be reinforced or replaced and anti-rust treatment will be applied to the metal parts, followed by a coat of protective paint.
