Moscow is a huge and dense city with passengers flow of dozens of hundreds. Trams just don't meet these requirements. Besides, you might not be able to build a tram line because the area is already built-up. And building an underground tram line is a waste of money. But the first reason is the passenger flow.

I respect Moscow history and traditions, but I absolutely sure that new transport stops should be named in the honour of more important objects for present-day life, not in the honour of historical non-actual toponym.

I didn't hear that you complained when Metro station near Tushino Aerodrome was named Spartak after football stadium, not project historical names of 1970s such as Volokolamskaya or Aeropole (Airfield). Nobody complained when Metro station on the Line 2 was named Dynamo in the honour of stadium which was opened just 10 years before the opening of Metro station.

So, please, boy, cry a louder - but it changes nothing! I enjoying it! By the way, there are many world stations named after sport clubs or sport objects. Some of them are renamed stations (such as Gillespie Road - Arsenal, Lima - Estación de Santiago Bernabéu, etc).
The man who often attend is fanatic. And considering that you putting CSKA over Moscow topology and history, you are sporting fanatic.

Well, there are actually plenty of places where there is room for trams and roughly the right amount of demand. The issue in Moscow is that they aren't fashionable for the current leadership.

You know, there are special fan zones at many stadiums and sport arenas. I'm not so active supporter to visit it.

If you are not interesting by sports, it doesn't mean that it's not interesting for anybody. CSKA as sport club exist for almost 100 years. There are millions of Muscovites who visited matches of CSKA teams (football, ice hockey, basketball, earlier - volleyball, handball, etc). There are thousands of people who trained at CSKA. There are hundreds of CSKA athletes who won at least one Olympic gold. For all these people, CSKA become part of their life.

And, yes, the history of CSKA is also part of Moscow history. Khodynka Field (the place of numerous celebrations dedicated to coronations of Emperors) lost own actuality after Revolution of 1917. Nobody celebrates here anything. Moreover, there is little remains from this field - there were constructed many houses at this place.

And now, I don't fighting against history of Khodynka Field. I have no idea to rename Khodynka Boulevard or to demolish church dedicated to the victims of Khodynka tragedy. But transport objects are supposed to serve present-day passengers. There are no any need to name future transport objects in the honour of historical places and objects which are not actual for now.

All these reasonable arguments were said by you many times at Russian subforum. However, you decide to continue this "holy war" at international thread where only few users knows Moscow history in such details. For what? May be, it's time to stop it for now. The final decision was taken, and decoration of station will be connected with CSKA. The captains of basketball and ice hockey teams already posed for future sculptures at this stations. Nobody will cancel this decision at this stadia.

What the heck did I just watch?

Was that a bunch of real people seeing how long they can stand still?

How did they get that station shut down like that, especially given the Metro's famous frequency and reliability?

Which station is that? It looks beautiful, but I've never seen it before.

The time at the clocks is 12:10 a.m, i.e. this Metro station will be closed after 50 minutes (therefore, time intervals are longer than at peak hours).

This is Metro station "Lesoparkovaya" ("Urban Forest") on the Line 12. The passenger traffic at this station is the lowest in Moscow Metro because there are no any infrastructure objects nearby, only Bitsa Park and Moscpw Automobile Ring Road. "Lesoparkovaya" was built for perspective development of nearest territory, there were plans to build transport hub nearby. Otherwise, according to existing norms, it was necessary to build technical platform with emergency exit during northern extension of the Line 12 (that would be just on 30% cheaper than construction of existing station).

The columns are faced with green granite. This is not accidentally because there will be transfer to Metro station "Dynamo" (1938) on the Green Line 2, so the colour of facing will be serve as additional element of navigation for passengers. The such idea will be realized at all transfer stations of the first stage of the Third Interchange Contour.







The escalators of the northern exit.

During the first stage of construction of the Third Interchange Contour, there will be built five stations - "Delovoy Tsentr" ("Business Center"; with transfer to the Line 4 and Line 8A), "Shelepikha" (with transfter to the Moscow Central Circle or Line 14), "Khoroshyovskaya" (with transfter to the Line 7 and free transfer to the Moscow Central Circle), "TsSKA" ("CSKA") and "Petrovsky Park" (with transfer to the Line 2). All these stations will be opened in 2017. The sixth station - "Nizhnyaya Maslovka" (with transfer to the Line 9) will be opened later due to problems connected with deep-level method of construction.

Of course, it's not. This building is a part of "Shuvalovsky" living complex built in 2008 in the pseudo-Stalinist style.
