The old stations are stunning, but the new ones are pretty hideous.

On the 7th November, the new ticket hall was opened for Spasskaya metro station (Line 4). This is Line 4 terminus station and interchange between Sennaya Plotshad (Line 2) and Sadovaya (Line 5):

They were thinking that building shopping malls in 18 and 19 century neighborhoods will attract many, many, many customers.

Don't worry. This ticket hall specially built here to close the view to "Peak" eyesore. In fact, all Senaya Square will be rebuilt to the historic standarts. Next to Sennaya Plotshad ticket hall, the restoration of Saviour Church on Sennaya Square, which was demolished in 1961 by explosion, is underway. Here how the church looked before demolition:





And this is the view from helicopter with renders of the church. It's out of date, because the construction site in the middle of the picture is Spasskaya ticket hall site:



By clicking this link, you can see news report with video on the opening day. The report in Russian. With the opening of the new ticket hall for the tree-station interchange, Sennaya Plotshad ticket hall will be closed for restoration and escalator replacement.

By the next year, another ticket hall will be opened in the city. New Sportivnaya station ticket hall will be built on the other side of Small Neva - on the Vasilevsky Island, to allow Vasileostrovskaya station also to be closed for reconstruction

Well, if we speak about architecture then ticket hall is quite a failure too.

Dimlys' photos show how making St Petersburg metro more friendly for foreign tourists (by adding bilingual signage) has not detracted from the overall aesthetic appeal of the system. Thanks for posting!

In other news, it's a double mitzvah for the metro this November since, in addition to the opening of the Spasskaya vestibule facility, Petrogradskaya station on Line 2 has reopened after being closed for renewal since the beginning of the year. Here are some photos from The Village website (http://www.the-village.ru/village/ci...trogradskaya):

Update about vestibules restoration:

Pushkinskaya/Pushkin station (Line 1) - closed for entry and exit from 1st December for presumably 19 months. Fortunately, this is an interchange station and to enter the station, you should go though Zvenigordskaya station ticket hall.

Ligovskiy Prospect/Ligovskiy Avenue (Line 4), on the other hand, is not interchange station, but it will also be closed on the 5th January next year and lasted for 15 months.

And still no Sennaya Plotschad/Sennaya Square (Line 2) closure update

Do you know if this is connected to the construction of interchange with the future line 6?

No. This line won't come to this area until mid-2020s or even later

No, the reason for future closing is geological problems with administrative building of St. Petersburg Metropolitan (in which vestibule of this station was built). During recent geodetic study, it was discovered that this building started to fall into soil. That's why it was decided to close this station for reconstruction in order to strengthen foundation pit of administration building.

As for Line 6 - there exist plans for construction of transfer station at this place. However, this station is planned to be built as part of second stage of the construction of the Line 6 in 2020s (the first stage of construction of this line is planned to be completed in 2019-2020).

Yes, it's an overhauled tram.
For numbers and designations - use transphoto.ru database.

From 1st April, the testing of new ticket machines inside of buses and trolleybuses has begun in Saint Petersburg. First, they only will work on bus route 40 (Kolomyagi Bus Park - Kultury Avenue) and trolleybus route 8 (Trolleybus Park #2 - Baltiyskiy Station) and will last until 30th June 2014:



The machine only accepts 1, 2, 5 and 10 rubles. Link in Russian

Yes, look at this map:



Green and orange lines are going to be extended by 2018, but construction are not started yet. Plus new second entrance with travalators at Sportivnaya station will be opened next year. Brown line will open in 2020 or later
