Metrobridge today. It's located between station "Rechnoy Stadion" ("River Terminal") and "Studencheskaya" ("Student station"):






Due to great difference between winter and summer temperatures in Siberia, the length of the bridge changing during the year within 1 meter. Therefore there were installed special rollers on the supports of the bridge. Box construction of bridge "skating" on rollers during every season of year.

Construction of the station "Admiralteyskaya" in St.-Peterburg:

"Admiralteyskaya" ("Admiraltery"), like "Obvodny Kanal", is an unfinished station on the Line 5 of the St.-Petersburg Metro, between working stations "Sportivnaya" and "Sadovaya". It was designed to relieve congestion at the "Nevsky Prospekt" and "Gostiny Dvor" stations, as well as to provide a more direct link to the Hermitage and other notable museums. However, the completion of the stations was hampered by the lack of funds and ongoing controversy over the placement of station's exit. It will eventually have a transfer to the Line 3 station tentativelydesignated "Admiralteyskaya-2" (the construction of that station has not begun yet). After the exit location was settled, the station was scheduled to open in 2008, but concerns over the station's historic significance pushed the opening back. In June 2009, the issue was finally settled and on. As of this writing, the station is scheduled to open some time in 2011.



The station's existence has been controversial for decades. Although the need for the station was apparent to the Metro planners for over three decades, the actual construction proved to be a difficult process. The station was to be built close to Hermitage, several notable museums and several buildings designated as federal landmarks, which raised fears that those buildings would be adversely affected by construction. Thus, finding the location of the exit proved to be difficult task that, after multiple attempts, was finally resolved on February 7, 2007. According to the city officials, it will be built on the site of the apartment building at #1/4 on Kirpichny Alley. The building was to be torn down so that a vestibule could be built in its place.

With the issue seemingly resolved, the city officials began moving out the building's residents, completely emptying it by the end of 2008. However the construction stalled due to the debate over the building's historic significance (it was the first building to be restored after the Siege of Leningrad). In June 2009, the issue was resolved in Metropoliten's favor (though the ruling stipulated that the building's original facade must be restored once the building is complete) and June 11, 2009, the contractors began to demolish the building. The construction will commence once all the debris are cleared.











When the construction of what was originally intended as the northern branch of the Kupchinsko-Primorskaya Line began, the underground vestibule of "Admiralteystkaya" was built, even as the location of the exit remained uncertain. By 1997, most of the vestibule was completed. However, the lack of resolution over the status of the station's exit, combined with scarcity of funds, put further construction on halt. When the northern branch was opened as a temporary part of the Line 4, the train passed the unfinished station without stopping, slowing down slightly while transversing it. However, in 2005, the construction resumed. Trains began to occasionally stop at this station in early morning hours to drop off workers.

In the Russian section of this site exist separate threads, which are devoted to every Russian Metro and one thread "Current Metros of Russia". My idea is a comparative analysis of development and prospects of Metro as kind of transport in Russia. I will talk only about the construction of Metro station. I know there are some threads for St. Petersburg and Kazan Metro, but they are not updated nearly half of year. I see no point to support the "half-dead" threads (not being resident of these good cities).

Construction of the station "Kozya Sloboda" in Kazan:

"Kozya Sloboda" ("Goat Settlement") is a future station of the Kazan Metro that is due to open in spring of 2011. It will be the first station on the right bank of the Kazanka River. Construction on the station started in February 2006.

"Kozya Sloboda" will shallow (depth - 14 metres) tri-vaulted station of the column type from the reinforced concrete. There will two underground vestibules with escalators. Interior of station will made in the High-Tech style. Track walls, columns and elements of ceiling will faced with modern materials.

Rendering of station:


The station was set to be called "Kozya Sloboda". This name, which translates roughly as "Goat Settlement", was a traditional name for the region before it became part of Kazan. However, in the wake of protests led in part by students of Kazan State Energy University the city government settled on the purely descriptive name "Zarechye", meaning "beyond the river". But finally it was decided to opened this station with name "Kozya Sloboda" because and design, and all technical documentation included this name.

The main purpose of the Kazan Metrobuilding is the northern extension of the line with the stations "Kozya Sloboda", "Dekabristov", "Moskovskaya" and "Aviastroitelnaya", which must be opened before the start of the 2013 Summer Universiade (July 13, 2013), scheduled in Kazan.

I don't see any problem here. During last time there will built only few original Metro entrances in Russia. All other Novosibirsk Metro entrances or was built according by typical design or not decorated in principle. For example, newest Moscow stations like "Mitino", "Dostoevskaya" and "Maryina Roshcha" were built without such entrances.

There are some fresh photos:





There are two of numerous typical Metro entrances, which were built in Moscow since 1960s:
