"PYATNITSKOYE SHOSSE":

On December 28, 2012 was opened "Pyatnitskoye Shosse" station.



"Pyatnitskoye Shosse" ("Pyatnitskoye Highway") is a western terminus station of the Line 3 of the Moscow Metro. The station is located near the intersection of Pyatnitskoye Highway and Mitinskaya Street, in the Mitino District, North-Western Administrative Okrug. The station has two vestibules and five exits: one - from the northern vestibule and four - from the southern vestibule. The northern vestibule is ground-level while southern vestibule is underground. The southern vestibule is equipped with elevators for people with reduced mobility.

The station named after Pyatnitskoye Highway near which located. Pyatnitskoye Highway became part of Moscow in 1986. This highway leads in direction to the Pyatnitsa village near Istra Reservoir in Moscow Region, hence the name. Like other Russian villages and settlements with same name, Pyatnitsa village was named after Saint Paraskevi of Iconium (also known as Paraskeva Pyatnitsa), who is venerated as a Christian virgin martyr. According to Christian tradition, she was born to a rich family of Iconium. Her parents were Christian, and Paraskevi was named as such (the name means "Friday" in Greek) because she was baptized on a Friday and because Friday was the day of Christ's Passion. It's interesting that the opening of Metro station "Pyatnitskoye Shosse" was held on Friday (December 28, 2012). In Russia, Paraskeva-Pyatnitsa was the patroness of traders and fairs, and of marriage.

According to the original plans, next after "Mitino" station at Line 3 should to be built "Rozhdestveno" station, which would to be located on the territory of planned big living massive. However, currently there is no big necessary in this station, because instead of living massive there was built only cottage settlement at the place of planned station. At the same times, there were built 1.5-km tunnels between "Mitino" station and future Metro depot. On March 10, 2009, at the meeting of Moscow government it was proposed to build Metro station "Pyatnitskaya" instead of "Rozhdestveno". The construction of this station at such place should not only improve the situation on the roads, but should also greatly decrease the time of daily trips of the residents of nearest Zelenograd town to their Moscow workplaces. There are plans to build car parking near the station (capacity - 565 cars). Without this station, branch line to the future Metro depot "Mitino" would be too long.

In December 2009 "Pyatnitskaya" appeared as the future station at the official Moscow Metro schemes. On February 22, 2011 the station was given the current name ("Pyatnitskoye Shosse") to avoid coincidence with well-known historical Pyatnitskaya Street in the central part of Moscow. The construction of the station started in June 2011. It was opened on December 28, 2012. Metro depot "Mitino" planned to be opened next year.

The architects of the station are Alexander Nekrasov, Galina Mun and Vladimir Filippov. "Pyatnitskoe Shosse" is a shallow two-vaulted station of column type (depth - 11 m), which is built in a curve of radius 800 m. The height of station is 4.8 m, column spacing - 7 m. "Pyatnitskoye Shosse" became sixth curve station in Moscow Metro. Five other curve stations are "Alexandrovsky sad" (opened in 1935; Line 4), "Kutuzovskaya" (opened in 1958; Line 4), "Vystavochnaya" (opened in 2005; Line 4), "Mezhdunarodnaya" (opened in 2006; Line 4) and "Zyablikovo" (opened in 2011; Line 10). The decoration of station is based on the contrast of black and white colours. The one side of station is decorated in black colour, while other - in light colour. The track walls and columns are faced with black and white marble, while the floor is paved with black and white granite. The stairs conducts with platform of station in a southern underground vestibule, further on a surface - four other stairways. All four exits from southern vestibule to a surface are covered with a glass constructions. The ground-level northern vestibule of ellipsoidal form is equipped with three escalators.

The station was opened on June 19, 2010 with one southern vestibule. In October 2010 began construction of northern vestibule, situated at the intersection of Sheremetyev Street and 4th Driveway of Mary's Grove. This vestibule was built in 30 metres from Russian State Theatre "Satyricon" named after Arkady Raykin, the one of well-known Moscow theatres. Originally it planned to be opened in September 2012 but its opening was delayed on November 2012. Technically, construction of northern vestibule was completed in November and some mass-media published information that it will be opened on November 6 during visit of Mayor of Moscow Sergey Sobyanin. However, due to lack of official technical permission for exploitation of escalators and other unknown reasons, northern vestibule remained closed for passengers during 1.5 months since Sobyanin's visit. It was opened for passengers on December 24, 2012.

2012 - RECONSTRUCTIONS, RESTORATIONS AND RENOVATIONS:

In 2012 were renovated vestibules and replaced old escalators at the Metro stations "Park Kultury" ("Park of Culture"; Ring Line), "Babushkinskaya" ("Mikhail Babushkin"; Line 6) and "Medvedkovo" (Line 6). These works began in 2011 and should be finished before beginning of 2012. However, it was not done due to problem with delivery of equipment for the escalators. It's a sad fact, that factually in Russia remained only one plant, which is able to produce escalators according to the Russian Metro standarts - "ELES" in St. Petersburg. The opening of many stations in Moscow and Russia in general was been postponed several times, because this plant was been not able to made escalators in time. As result, it became the limiting factor of the Metro construction in the country. Facing with this problem, new Mayor of Moscow Sergey Sobyanin proposed to organize producing of the escalators on the base of ZIL automotive factory in Moscow, but these plans remained unrealized. To avoid these problems in the future, city authorities decided that all further replacing of escalators will begin only after all necessary escalator parts will be delivered in Moscow.

On January 14, 2011, Moscow Metro authorities announced their plans to close "Park Kultury" station of Ring Line (opened on January 1, 1950) on February 5, 2011 so as to replace the ageing escalators. The problem was that the transfer on the "Park Kultury" station of Line 1 (opened on May 15, 1935) is located only in the combined ground-level vestibule of these stations. Therefore, the station of Ring Line was closed for passengers on February 5, 2011 - the trains bypassed this station without stops. "Park Kultury" was supposed to open on December 28, 2011 but the date was shifted to March 30, 2012 due to delays in shipping new escalator parts. In the end of April 2012 authorities apologized for the delay and opened the station on April 28. Except replacing of escalators, in vestibule were replaced turnstiles and renovated technical rooms. In addition, there was made ​​cosmetic repairs of ceilings, walls and floors, were renovated bas-reliefs and other decorative elements. Also, was reconstructed transfer on Line 1 with installation of new escalators.

By the way, in 2011 "Park Kultury" was one of only two Metro stations, where remained escalators with wooden parts. Unfortunately, it were replaced with modern metallic escalators:

Fortunately, on February 28, 2011 at the station "Medvedkovo" (Line 6; opened on September 29, 1978) was closed only one (northern) of two vestibules. As result, its opening after reconstruction was rescheduled from November 30, 2011 to March 30, 2012. However, this date was also shifted due to delays in shipping new escalator parts. It was opened after reconstruction on May 31, 2012. There were replaced escalators, installed modern turnstiles as well as reconstructed ticket offices and technical rooms.

The similar story happened at the neighboring station "Babushkinskaya" ("Mikhail Babushkin"; Line 6; opened on September 29, 1978), where southern vestibule was closed for reconstruction on April 28, 2011. Its opening after reconstruction was rescheduled from December 30, 2011 to May 30, 2012. However, this date was also shifted due to delays in shipping new escalator parts. It was opened after reconstruction on June 30, 2012. Like at the "Medvedkovo" station, here were replaced escalators, installed modern turnstiles as well as reconstructed ticket offices and technical rooms.

The another interesting event was renovation of vaults in the escalator tunnels of the neighboring stations "Aviamotornaya" ("Avia-motoric") and "Shosse Entuziastov" ("Enthusiasts Highway") on the Line 8 (opened on December 30, 1979), which started in November 2011 and was finished in the beginning of 2012.

In 2012 was replaced ceramic tile at the track walls of the station "Proletarskaya" ("Proletarian"; Line 7; opened on December 31, 1966).

"Proletarskaya" is a typical three-vaulted column-type shallow station (depth - 9 m) built to the standard project. The station is a typical of the 1960s functional design and like many stations built at the time lacks the design and decorative innovations that some of the more famous Moscow Metro stations exhibit. The architects Yulia Kolesnikova and Yury Vdovin applied a bright theme. The flared columns (slightly widening at the top) are faced with white marble and have a yellow stripe above, while the floor is reveted with labradorite and grey granite of different shades. The station has underground vestibules interlinked with Metro under the Peasant Outpost Square with entrances covered by glazed concrete pavilions. On July 23, 1997 was opened footbridge over the northbound line, which serves as a third exit to the common vestibule with the station "Krestyanskaya Zastava" ("Peasant Outpost"; opened on December 28, 1995) of the Line 10 and also acts as a transfer point.

Before March 2012, track walls of station were faced with glazed ceramic tiles of white and black (below platform level), which have decorations in the form of hammer and sickles made from anodized aluminium. However, the modern metalloplastic cladding was applied in 2012, giving the station a cleaner look. The renovation of walls lasted before mid-June 2012.

On December 21, 2012 was finished enlargement of the Metro depot "Pechatniki".

Metro depot "Pechatniki" was commissioned on December 27, 1995. It's 15th and latest Metro depot which was opened in Moscow. Currently it's only Metro depot which serves Line 10. There works 1275 people.

On December 2, 2011 Line 10 was extended on 4.3 km south with three new stations. That's why it became necessary to enlarge area of existing Metro depot before planned northern extension of this line. The works for enlargement were started in spring of 2012. The construction site had a very complicated geological structure due to swamped lands at the place of new corps. The works for enlargement were finished on December 21, 2012. During enlargement, territory of Metro depot was increased almost twice - from 7 to 13.7 hectares, and its capacity was increased from 24 to 38 trains. Before enlargement, 26 of 56 trains of this depot stayed in Metro tunnels during nighttime. As result, it was impossible qualitatively examine these trains during the night. After enlargement, deficit of places for night maintenance of trains was decreased to 12. This deficit planned to be liquidated after the northern extension of the Line 10 with new Metro depot "Likhobory".

The inauguration of the new corps will let to save significant funds. It's planned that in 2013 the savings to be 75 mln. rubles (~ 2.5 mln. USD). According to the plans, in 2013-2017 will be opened 7 new Metro depots in Moscow ("Mitino", "Brateyevo", "Solntsevo", "Likhobory", "Chelobityevo", "Rudnevo" and "Yuzhnoye"). In 2012-2019 seven other Metro depots planned to be reconstructed ("Vladykino", "Planernoye", "Fili", "Novogireyevo", "Severnoye", "Vykhino" and "Sokol"). All new and revamped train maintenance facilities will be kitted out with the latest equipment, which should increase the reliability and service life of the Moscow Metro and its rolling stock.
