THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE SOLNTSEVSKY RADIUS

Simultaneously with extension of the Line 1 to the southwest, in Moscow will be continued construction of the Solntsevsky Radius (the planned radius of the future Kalininsko-Solntsevskaya Line 8). The first segment of this radius between Metro stations "Delovoy Tsentr" ("Business Center") and "Park Pobedy" ("Victory Park") is scheduled to be opened in the end of 2013. After that, Solntsevsky Radius will be extended to the southwest in direction to the highly populated Solntsevo and Novo-Peredelkino Districts. The segment between Metro stations "Park Pobedy" and "Ramenki" with intermediate station "Lomonosovsky Prospekt" is scheduled to be opened in 2015. The length of this segment is 7.1 km, including 1.5 km between "Lomonosovsky Prospekt" and "Ramenki" stations. According to existing standards of safety of passengers, there will be built emergency exit from the long tunnel "Park Pobedy"-"Lomonosovsky Prospekt".

There are plans to install platform screen doors at the stations of the Solntsevsky Radius.

"LOMONOSOVSKY PROSPEKT"

"Lomonosovsky Prospekt" ("Lomonosov Avenue") is a future station of the planned Kalininsko-Solntsevskaya Line 8 of the Moscow Metro. It will be located near Indira Gandhi Square at the intersection of the Lomonosov Avenue and Michurin Avenue, in the Ramenki District, Western Administrative Okrug.

The station is named after the Lomonosov Avenue, which located nearby. This avenue was formed as result of urban planning of the south-western part of Moscow in late-1940s. On January 13, 1947 Council of Ministers of the USSR issued decree about construction of the eight skyscrapers in order to commemorate 800th anniversary of Moscow (one of which was never built). This plan included construction of the gigantic main building and other corps of the Lomonosov Moscow State University in the south-western part of Moscow simultaneously with general development of the adjacent territory. Lomonosov Avenue was built as transport magistral that limits the territory of Lomonosov Moscow State University from southwest. The oldest part of this avenue (between present-day Vavilov Street and Vernadsky Avenue) was built up in 1955-1957. On September 6, 1954 at this part was opened tramline, on July 27, 1957 - trolleybus route; on January 12, 1959 - Metro station "Universitet" ("University"; Line 1). In 1961 the avenue was extended to Mosfilm Street and was linked with Minsk Street.

Lomonosov Avenue got its current name on March 30, 1956 in the honour of the great Russian scientist Mikhail Lomonosov (1711-1765), who is considered "the founder of the Russian science". The son of prosperous peasant fisherman from the far north of Russia, Mikhail Lomonosov was a Russian polymath, scientist and writer, who made important contributions to literature, education, and science. Among his discoveries was the atmosphere of Venus. His spheres of science were natural science, chemistry, physics, mineralogy, history, art, philology, optical devices and others. Lomonosov was also a poet and influenced the formation of the modern Russian literary language. He was proud to restore the ancient art of mosaics. In 1763, he set up a glass factory that produced the first stained glass mosaics outside of Italy. Eager to improve Russia’s educational system, in 1755, Lomonosov joined his patron Count Ivan Shuvalov (1727-1797) in founding the Moscow State University. MSU, the oldest and largest university in Russia, was established on January 25, 1755. It was renamed in honor of its founder, Mikhail Lomonosov, on May 7, 1940. Lomonosov Moscow State University also claims to have the tallest educational building in the world (erected in 1949-1953 under leadership of great Russian architect Lev Rudnev). The Lomonosov Gold Medal was established in 1959 and is awarded annually by the Russian Academy of Sciences to a Russian and a foreign scientist.

The first project for construction of Metro station in this area (near the end of Lomonosov Avenue) appeared in 1962. There were plans to build Kievsky Radius of the Line 4 from Metro station "Kievskaya" ("Kiev"; opened on April 5, 1953) to the settlement of Ochakovo - this project became basis for current project of the Solntsevsky Radius. In 1980s were plans to build Metro station at this place during construction of the planned Solntsevo-Mytishchinskaya chordial line. In early-2000s it was decided to refuse from construction of this station in the favour of planned direct route between "Park Pobedy" and "Ramenki". However, this planned route was also changed. In accordance with former plans, this station was planned to be built under name "Minskaya" ("Minsk") at the intersection of the Mosfilm Street and Minsk Street, near the end of Lomonosov Avenue. In May 2009 there were started geological researches in this area. In the end of 2011, it was decided to start construction of Metro station at the intersection of the Lomonosov Avenue and Michurin Avenue, and to rename it to "Lomonosovsky Prospekt" ("Lomonosov Avenue"). In December 2011 was started removal of communication utilities from the territory of construction. In April 2012 there were started preliminary works at the construction site of the station. In September 2012 there began pile-drilling works. In November 2012 were started works at the site for construction of the tunnels in direction to Metro station "Park Pobedy". The construction of the tunnels will begin this year with using of TBM "Herrenknecht S-747". In December 2012 was started construction of the foundation pit of future Metro station. According to the resolution of the city government on May 4, 2012, "Lomonosovsky Prospekt" should to be opened in 2017. But later it was decided to accelerate construction. This station is scheduled to be opened in 2015.

"Lomonosovsky Prospekt" will be shallow two-vaulted station of the column type. The column spacing will be 6 metres. The platform of station will be situated along the Michurin Avenue, perpendicular to the Lomonosov Avenue. There will be built two underground vestibules under the Michurin Avenue. The four exits from southern vestibule will be built at the both sides of Lomonosov Avenue. The one of four southern entrances will be built at the Indira Gandhi Square, the another - at the garden square near Embassy of the People's Republic of China in Moscow that is the largest foreign diplomatic compound in the world. Two exits from northern vestibule will be built near the Research Institute of Mechanics of the Lomonosov Moscow State University.

"RAMENKI"

"Ramenki" is a future western terminal station of the planned Kalininsko-Solntsevskaya Line 8 of the Moscow Metro. It will be located at the intersection of the Michurin Avenue and Vinnytsia Street, in the Ramenki District, Western Administrative Okrug.

The station is named after district in which it will be located. There are situated Lomonosov Moscow State University (Russia's largest university), film studio "Mosfilm" (oldest and largest film studio in Russia and one of the largest in Europe) and 16 embassies of foreign states in the Ramenki District. In the ancient times there were many settlements and cottages at the territory of present-day districts, it was popular place for leisure. The one of such settlements was village of Ramenki which known since 1389. The name of this village is derived from word "ramen" or "ramenye", that means "dense coniferous forest". In 1902 in Ramenki lived 442 inhabitants, mostly peasants. After October Revolution of 1917, there were established collective farms in this settlement. Later Ramenki was included into Kuntsevsky District of Moscow Region. In 1956 Ramenki was granted status of work settlement. On March 14, 1958 it was included into city boundaries. Since 1960 there began mass construction of the living houses at the place of the former settlement. On September 12, 1991 was established municipal okrug Ramenki of the Western Administrative Okrug. On July 5, 1995 Ramenki granted status of the district of Moscow. In July 16, 1997 Mosfilmovsky District was incorporated into Ramenki District. On December 4, 2002 territory of Moscow State University was also incorporated into Ramenki District.

The projecting of this station is going since 1965. There were plans to build Kievsky Radius of the Line 4 from Metro station "Kievskaya" ("Kiev"; opened on April 5, 1953) to the settlement of Ochakovo - this project became basis for current project of the Solntsevsky Radius. But even in 1938 there existed plans to built one of stations of the existing Frunzensky Radius of the Line 1 approximately at this place. In December 2011 was started removal of communication utilities from the territory of construction. In October 2012 began preparation works at the territory of construction. According to the resolution of the city government on May 4, 2012, "Ramenki" should to be opened in 2017. But later it was decided to accelerate construction. This station is scheduled to be opened in 2015.

"Ramenki" will be shallow two-vaulted station of the column type. The column spacing will be 6 metres. The platform of station will be situated along the Michurin Avenue. Its columns will be decorated in green color - it should remind about former forest which gave name for Ramenki District. There are planned to build two underground vestibules under the Michurin Avenue with four exits to the both sides of avenue.

THE NORTHERN EXTENSION OF THE LINE 2. "TEKHNOPARK" STATION.

Also, there are plans to extend the Line 2 on 2.4 km north with two new stations - "Belomorskaya" and Ulitsa Dybenko". The new stations will be serve local residents as well as residents of the neighboring city of Khimki (population: 207.425 inhabitants) and other cities in Moscow Region. Possibly, that these two stations will be opened earlier, in 2014-2015 to compensate for the lag in the construction of the northern radius of the Line 10.

It's possible that in 2016-2020 there will be opened new station "Tekhnopark" on the existing Metro track of the Line 2. This station is planned to be opened near technology park. If it will be built, its construction will be fully funded by private money. Currently, the future of this station depends entirely on the desire of private investors.


"BELOMORSKAYA"

"Belomorskaya" ("White Sea") is a future station of the Line 2 of the Moscow Metro. It will be located near the intersection of the White Sea Street and Smolnaya Street, in the Levoberezhny District, Northern Administrative Okrug.

The station is named after 1.4-km long White Sea Street near which it will be located. This street was named on April 18, 1964 due to location in the northern part of city in the honour of White Sea, White Sea–Baltic Canal (constructed in 1931-1933; opened on August 5, 1933) and Belomorsk town (founded in 1938) in Republic of Karelia on the shore of the White Sea. Prior to 1964, this street was known as projected driveway #3670. The White Sea is a southern inlet of the Barents Sea located on the northwest coast of Russia. It is surrounded by Karelia to the west, the Kola Peninsula to the north, and the Kanin Peninsula to the northeast. The whole of the White Sea is under Russian sovereignty and considered to be part of the internal waters of Russia. Administratively, it is divided between Arkhangelsk and Murmansk Regions and the Republic of Karelia. The major port of Arkhangelsk is located on the White Sea. For much of Russia's history this was Russia's main centre of international maritime trade, conducted by the so-called Pomors ("seaside settlers") from Kholmogory. In the modern era it became an important Soviet naval and submarine base. The White Sea-Baltic Canal connects the White Sea with the Baltic Sea. The White Sea is one of four seas named in English after common colour terms - the others being the Black Sea, the Red Sea and the Yellow Sea.

The sea was known to the Novgorod people since at least the 11th century and was rapidly explored because of its commercial significance for navigation and coastal forests rich in fur animals. One of the earliest settlements near the sea shores was established in the late 14th century in Kholmogory, on the Northern Dvina River. From there, in 1492, a merchant fleet laden with grain and carrying ambassadors of Grand Prince of All Russia Ivan III (1440-1505) sailed to Denmark, marking the establishment of the first international seaport in Russia. The first foreign ship to arrive in Kholmogory was the English "Edward Bonaventure" commanded by Richard Chancellor. Together with two other ships under the command of Hugh Willoughby, they were seeking a northern route to the Indies, especially India and China. The expedition was sponsored by King Edward VI (1537-1553) and a group of about 240 English merchants and was authorised to establish trade connections. The ships of Willoughby were separated and the other two were lost at sea, but "Edward Bonaventure" managed to pass the White Sea and reach Kholmogory, from where Chancellor was escorted to Moscow to meet the Russian Tsar, Ivan the Terrible (1530-1584). Returning from Russia in 1554, Chancellor brought a detailed description of Moscow and the Russian north, which were largely unknown to Europe, as well as a letter from the Tsar expressing desire to establish trade relations with England. In 1555, Queen Mary (1516-1558) issued a charter authorising the Muscovy Company to trade with Russia via the White Sea route. The English ships were soon followed by Dutch, and the port of Kholmogory became busy with shipments of fur and fish. Local and foreign shops and factories were established in the city at that time. The port was reinforced with a fortress which sustained a siege by the Polish-Lithuanian aggressors in 1613. Increasing traffic was overloading the port, which was standing on shallow river waters and had a limited ship capacity. However, instead of expanding the old port, a new one, called New Kholmogory, was founded on the sea shores in 1584 and later became the city of Arkhangelsk. Between the 15th and early 18th centuries, the White Sea provided the major trade route to Russia. This role decreased later with the foundation of Saint Petersburg, which opened a more favorable connection via the Baltic Sea. From the 1920s, most Russian sea shipments were diverted from the White Sea to the new port of Murmansk, where the waters did not freeze in winter. The sea hosts more than 700 species of invertebrates, about 60 species of fish, and 5 species of marine mammals. The fishing industry is relatively small, mostly targeting harp seal, ringed seal, herring, saffron cod, European smelt, Atlantic cod and Atlantic salmon. There is a developing seaweed industry. The White Sea is an important traffic centre of northwestern Russia, interconnecting various economic regions and providing an outlet to the foreign routes. The White Sea–Baltic Canal links it through Onega Lake to the Baltic Sea and the major city and port of Saint Petersburg. The Baltic Sea, in turn, is connected by the Volga–Baltic Waterway to the Volga River, Black, Caspian, and Azov seas. The major ports on the White Sea are Arkhangelsk, Belomorsk, Kandalaksha, Kem, Mezen, Onega, Severodvinsk and Umba. Despite being frozen in winter, the sea remains navigable all year around because of deployment of icebreakers.

The northwestern extension of the Line 2 from Metro station "Sokol" was planned even in 1938. There were plans to extend Line 2 along the Leningrad Highway to the future Metro station "Khimki". However, the construction of Metro station "Belomorskaya" was not planned. In 1947 were confirmed plans of 1938 for northwestern extension of the Line 2. In 1957 this station appeared in plans under name "Belomorskaya Ulitsa" ("White Sea Street"). In 1959 Council of Ministers of the USSR approved plan for construction of Metro lines for next seven years (1959-1965). On December 31, 1964, according to this plan, the Line 2 was extended northwest with three stations - "Voykovskaya" ("Pyotr Voykov"), "Vodny Stadion" ("Water Stadium") and "Rechnoy Vokzal" ("River Terminal"). According to the plan of 1970, the Line 2 shoulded be extend to the railway station "Levoberezhnaya". In 1973 appeared perspective scheme at which were marked three planned stations - "Belomorskaya" ("White Sea"), "Ulitsa Dybenko" ("Dybenko Street") and "Levoberezhnaya" ("Left-Bank"). In 1978 it was decided to postpone construction of this segment in order to accelerate construction of the Line 9. In 1990s city authorities refused from construction of Metro station "Levoberezhnaya". So, at the perspective scheme of 1998 Metro station "Ulitsa Dybenko" was marked as future northern terminus of the Line 2.

In November 2007 it was reported that in 2015 the Line 2 will be extended to the Khovrino and Levoberezhny Districts. In June 2011 new Mayor of Moscow Sergey Sobyanin that the opening of two future stations is planned for 2014-2017. In 2011 was planned to open these stations in 2016, in May 2012 this opening was rescheduled for December 2019, in December 2012 - for December 2014. This extension should to improve transport communication in the adjacent territories of Moscow and Moscow Region near the Leningrad Highway.

"Belomorskaya" will be shallow three-vaulted station of the column type. The detailed project of this station is not ready yet.

"ULITSA DYBENKO"

"Ulitsa Dybenko" ("Dybenko Street") is a future northwestern terminal station of the Line 2 of the Moscow Metro. It will be located near the intersection of the Dybenko Street and Zelenograd Street, not so far from Moscow Automobile Ring Road (MKAD) and October Railway, in the Khovrino District, Northern Administrative Okrug.

The station is named after 1.4-km long Dybenko Street near which it will be located. This street was named on April 18, 1964 in the honour of Russian revolutionary and a leading Soviet officer Pavel Dybenko (1889-1938). In 1960s, there began mass construction of the living houses in this area. Prior to 1964, this street was known as projected driveway #4934.

"Ulitsa Dybenko" will be shallow three-vaulted station of the column type. The station will be built with two underground vestibules which will be linked with underpasses under the Dybenko Street. The detailed project of this station is not ready yet.

"TEKHNOPARK":

"Tekhnopark" ("Technology Park") is a planned station of the Line 2 of the Moscow Metro. The station will be located near the Andropov Avenue, in the Nagatinsky Zaton District, Southern Administrative Okrug. It will be built on existing Metro track between stations "Avtozavodskaya" ("Automotive Plant"; opened on January 1, 1943) and "Kolomenskaya" (opened on August 11, 1969) near the Nagatinsky combined auto and Metro bridge (1969).

The station is named after "Nagatino i-Land" technology park near which it will be located. This complex is located 8 km south of Kremlin, 1.8 km of Third Transport Ring and 100 metres of Andropov Avenue. It being built on the former territories of ZIL automotive plant. The total area is 32 hectares. Prior of 20th century, there were Emperor's hunting lands. On August 2, 1916 there was held solemn service and breaking ground of the AMO (Moscow Automotive Society) automobile factory. On October 1, 1931 the factory changed its name to Stalin Plant (Zavod Imeni Stalina - ZIS). In 1945 there was launched manufacturing of the government's high-end limousine ZIS-110. On June 26, 1956, after Nikita Khrushchev denounced the cult of personality of Joseph Stalin, the name was changed again to Likhachev Plant (Zavod Imeni Likhacheva - ZIL), after its former director Ivan Likhachev (1896-1956). In 1974 a million ZIL-130 truck was assembled. In 2003 was started preparation and implementation of the project "Moscow city technopark Nagatino i-Land". In 2006 began first stage of the construction of "Nagatino i-Land". In 2009 there were put into commission the first buildings of the first construction stage of the technology park. On September 14, 2010 was held ceremonial opening of the first construction stage of "Nagatino i-Land". In 2012 was started the second construction stage. The second stage is planned to be completed in 2014. The whole complex is planned to be built in five stages. Its construction planned to be finished in 2016.

In 1969, during construction of the "Avtozavodskaya"-"Kolomenskaya" path, there was remained opportunity for construction of Metro station "Park imeni 60-letiya Oktyabrya" ("Park named after 60 Years of October") at this place. However, this station was not built due to lack of necessary - there was no any residential area as well as organisations and enterprises nearby. Only in mid-2000s in Nagatinskaya floodplain, on the former territories of ZIL automotive factory, was began construction of "Nagatino i-Land" - technology park, which will include business centre, hotel, trade centre and few entertainment venues. The idea to built Metro station near the future technology park appeared in 2004. In June 2006 it was planned to built Metro station on the funds of private investors (owners of "Nagatino i-Land"). The date of beginning of construction was constantly put off. In August 2010 city authorities promised to start construction in 2011 and to open station in 2012. In August 2011 the opening was rescheduled for 2016, in May 2012 - for December 2018, in December 2012 - for 2015. Currently there is no any construction works at this site. According to agreement, investors must fully fund the construction of this station from own budget.

The project of Metro station "Tekhnopark" was presented in August 2009. The architects of the station are Alexander Orlov and Alexander Nekrasov. "Tekhnopark" will be ground-level station of the closed-type with side platforms. It will be built without limitation of the passenger operation on existing track. This station will be have two ground-level vestibules, the southern vestibule will be built as emergency exit.

Great thread! I really appreciate. I don't believe you should "delete" anything. Just a piece of advice if I may, please add a map with latin transliteration for every station name. This can help get a hint of the stations' location for people who can't read cyrillic.

Great thread! Moscow Metro has a very interesting history. I don't think there is a problem with the amount, if people are not interested then no-one is forcing them to read it.

Could you please clarify this bit, as I don't really understand it and am interested.

First time in the Moscow Metro the upper arch of the escalator tunnel was made not in a vertical, but in the horizontal plane. This is allowed to visually expand the space of the vestibule. Subsequently, this architectural method (lying arch, curved balk) became widely used in the Moscow Metro.
