2012 - CULTURAL EVENTS:

According to the new tradition, at the night of 18/19 May was organized night concert in the Moscow Metro. This concert was dedicated to 77-anniversary of Moscow Metro. It was held at the station "Kropotkinskaya" ("Peter Kropotkin"), which was opened as station of first Moscow Metro line on May 15, 1935.

Since 2010, every year on the anniversary of the Moscow Metro system in mid-May, there have been live musical performances at the "Kropotkinskaya" Metro station in the middle of the night, after the trains stop running. The station serves as the performance hall: chairs are arranged in the center, and there are open trains along the sides where guests can also settle in and enjoy the show.

The first year, there was not enough space for all the people who wanted to attend. The station's capacity is limited, and only 500 people with special invitations were able to go to the concert. To become a spectator, it was necessary to fill out a questionnaire at the site of orchestra, to participate in a simple contest at official site of Moscow Metro and receive an invitation. There was a sold-out at the station for the third year in a row.

At the first two festive concerts, Chamber Orchestra "Kremlin" under the baton of Misha (Mikhail) Rachlevsky performed in 2010 and 2011. This year, however, the decision was made to hold a vocal concert. One of the oldest and best amateur choruses in Russia was chosen, the Academic Grand Chorus of the Russian State University for the Humanities, directed by Boris Tarakanov. For an hour-and-a-half, from 2:30 to 4:00 a.m., the chorus performed along with a "Broadway" vocal group, international contest laureates Irina Sakne and Natalya Kirillova as well as with People's Artist of Russia Alexander Pyatkov.

This "Night in the Metro" became a continuation of – or, more precisely, an addition to – the "Night at the Museum" project. Held once a year in mid-May, Moscow’s museums stay open late with a showcase special events and performances. Moscow joined the international "Night at the Museum" campaign in 2007.

It made sense to add the "Night in the Metro" to "Night at the Museum" as the Moscow Metro is kind of a museum itself. The extraordinary beauty of the entrance halls has amazed tourists for many years, and residents of the capital never cease to admire them, even when they are rushing to work. The acoustics in many of the stations are also amazingly good.

Despite the late hour, the audience in the improvised concert hall did not fall asleep, but listened attentively. Sometimes they sang along and swayed with the music. The performers said that the audience was very receptive and that they felt a connection with the crowd. Most of the songs were familiar to all. Arias, folk songs, Cossack songs, church songs, old songs in new arrangements, movie music, works by singer-songwriters and many others rang out into the night.

The audience enjoyed the famous Cossack songs "It's Not Evening Yet" and "Spring Shall Come, but Not for Me". At one point, it seemed that performers and audience alike had shifted back into the middle of the 20th century, when during World War II Metro stations were also filled with song to raise the spirits of the population. During the 2012 concert, the famous wartime song "Dark Is the Night" (1943) was solemnly performed.

Especially touching was the song "Walking the Streets of Moscow", which is associated with the image of the young actor Nikita Mikhalkov, who sang it in the Metro in the film of the same name. And the no-less-famous "Kalinka" sounded unusual, performed by the "Broadway" quartet with the addition of a beatbox and motifs from Michael Jackson's song "Billy Jean". Operatic works also had their opportunity, such as a famous aria from "Tosca". What was striking was not only the vocals but also the linguistic range of the performers. There were Russian songs, Italian songs ("O sole mio"), gypsy songs ("My Darling"), as well as English ("Dream a Little Dream"), Hebrew, German, and Arabic songs ("Christ Is Risen").

On April 25, 2012 was renovated exposition in the special train "Poetry in the Metro". For the first time "poetic" train was put into operation at Line 4 on November 17, 2010 with a selection of verses of five known Chilean poets, including Pablo Neruda and Gabriela Mistral. On June 30, 2011 this exposition was replaced with a selection of verses of eight known Italian poets, including Dante Alighieri and Francesco Petrarca. New exposition is dedicated to the creativity of great Colombian writer Gabriel García Márquez (b. 1927), Nobel Prize Laureat (1982). The exhibition is organized on the initiative of Ambassador of Colombia to Russia Rafael Amador Campos and dedicated to the 85th anniversary of García Márquez's birth.

Gabriel García Márquez is a author of the world-famous novellas and novels such as "No One Writes to the Colonel" (1961), "One Hundred Years of Solitude" (1967), "The Autumn of the Patriarch" (1975) and "Love in the Time of Cholera" (1985). However only experts are familiar with his poetic legacy, because his early verses were not published earlier and were first translated into Russian specifically for the train "Poetry in the Metro". In the exposition which is named "Poetry and prose of Gabriel García Márquez" are placed selected pieces of his most famous works and fragments of his never-published verses.

All fragments and biography of the writer presented in two languages ​​- Russian and Spanish. The presentation of new exposition was held at Metro station "Mezhdunarodnaya" ("International"; Line 4; opened on August 30, 2006). In the vestibule of station were sold special tickets for two trips with the original design, dedicated to this event. Moscow Metro has issued half a million commemorative tickets. The action is timed to the "Year of Gabriel García Márquez", marked in Russia. A specially-decorated train is makes rounds on Moscow's Metro Line 4 during the few months, providing passengers with an opportunity to read fragments from Gabriel García Márquez's best-known and less-famous works. Later there will be presented the works of other authors in this train.

This museum was founded in 1907 on the initiative of a young Russian scientist Alexander Kots (1880-1964). In 1907 Kots began to read course of evolutionary theory at Moscow University for Women, using his own collection of stuffed animals as visual material. In 1913 he gifted his collection to zoological laboratory of University. But only in 1922 was established independent state institution - Darwin Museum. Alexander Kots was Director of the Darwin Museum before own death in 1964. In 1995 was opened new building of museum, which was built for 20 years. Currently State Darwin Museum is the largest museum of natural sciences in Europe. State Darwin Museum differs from other museums of natural sciences in its combination of scientific exhibits with paintings, prints and sculptures, something it takes special pride in. The museum possesses more than 400.000 items, including a sizable collection of animal art.

The sculptures, from the State Darwin Museum collection, belong to famous and novice artists alike. "Vorobyovy Gory" is one of the most original stations in the Moscow Metro system. Built on a covered bridge over the Moscow-River, it has become even more spectacular with the glass art showcases. Fifteen sculptors were represented: Georgy Popandopulo, Boris Vorobyov, Andrey Martz, Alexander Belashov, Andrey Aseryantz, Marina Ostrovskaya, Oleg Zakomorny, Alexey Tsvetkov, Margarita Kamardina, Yekaterina Yakovleva, Galina Shilina, Tatyana Savvateyeva, Galina Dudnikova, Vitaly Shanov and Kadim Zamitov.

The opening ceremony was attended by Deputy Head of Moscow Metro for HR Alexander Golovkin, Director of the State Darwin Museum Anna Klyukina, honorable guests, media and Metro passengers. The organizers reminded the guests that Moscow Metro’s main goal is to ensure safe and secure passenger travel but the mood of the passengers is of great importance too. For this reason, a number of cultural projects is carried out in the Metro system. That time, passengers had a chance to see some of the best exhibits from the State Darwin Museum. There were as many as 42 animal sculptures that depict a Himalayan black bear, a Tasmanian wolf, a snowy owl, a fox, a chameleon and others.

On May 11, 2012 at the Metro station "Partizanskaya" ("Partisans"; Line 3; opened on January 18, 1944) was presented the new exposition of the special train "Aquarelle". The "Aquarelle" train known as a picture gallery on wheels started operating on the Line 3 on June 1, 2007. Its first exposition was based on the paintings of People Artist of Russia Sergey Andriyaka (15 works) and his students (30 works). This exposition was replaced on May 13, 2009 by 35 reproductions of the 35 aquarelles from the collection of Russian Museum in St. Petersburg. On May 12, 2010 the exposition was changed again. The third exposition was based on the 35 works from collection of the Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts in Moscow. The next exposition was presented in the night 14/15 May, 2011 during celebrations dedicated to the 76-anniversary of Moscow Metro. It was based on the works from collection of the regional Vyatka Art Museum named after Viktor Vasnetsov and Apollinary Vasnetsov in Kirov.

It's interesting that before 2012 the exposition based on the works from most famous Moscow art museum (Tretyakov Gallery) wasn't presented in this train. This misunderstanding was eliminated on May 11, 2012. Just days before its 77-anniversary Moscow Metro in collaboration with the State Tretyakov Gallery (that also marked its 156-anniversary in May) has presented a new exhibition inside the "Aquarelle" train.

The State Tretyakov Gallery is an art gallery in Moscow, the foremost depository of Russian fine art in the world. The gallery's history starts in 1856 when the Moscow merchant Pavel Tretyakov acquired works by Russian artists of his day with the aim of creating a collection, which might later grow into a museum of national art. In 1892, Tretyakov presented his already famous collection of approximately 2000 works (1362 paintings, 526 drawings, and 9 sculptures) to the Russian nation. The façade of the gallery building was designed by the painter Viktor Vasnetsov in a peculiar Russian fairy-tale style. It was built in 1902–1904 to the south from the Moscow Kremlin. During the 20th century, the gallery expanded to several neighboring buildings, including the 17th-century church of St. Nicholas in Tolmachi. The collection contains more than 170.000 exhibits, ranging from Theotokos of Vladimir and Andrei Rublev's "Trinity" to the monumental "Composition VII" by Wassily Kandinsky and the "Black Square" by Kazimir Malevich. In 1977 the Gallery kept a significant part of the George Costakis collection.

The Tretyakov Gallery specialists selected 35 aquarelle paintings from the biggest collection of Russian fine art for the train-exhibition. Here were presented reproductions of the art works of various artists: recognized masters of watercolor painting - Karl Bryullov (1799-1852) and Mikhail Vrubel (1856-1910); leaders of Russian avant-guarde - Wassily Kandinsky (1866-1944), Kazimir Malevich (1879-1935), Mikhail Larionov (1881-1964), Aleksandra Ekster (1882-1949) and Lyubov Popova (1889-1924); painters of Soviet era - Aleksandr Deyneka (1899-1969) and Vladimir Lebedev (1891-1967) as well as authors of streetscape paintings - Alexander Ivanov (1806-1858), Pavel Fedotov (1815-1852) and Vasily Surikov (1848-1916). The event was timed to 156-anniversary of the foundation of Tretyakov Gallery as well as to 77-anniversary of the Moscow Metro. The opening ceremony was attended by Deputy Head of Moscow Metro for HR Alexander Golovkin and General Director of the State Tretyakov Gallery Irina Lebedeva. Moscow Metro has issued special tickets for two rides dedicated to the new exhibition inside the "Aquarelle" train.

On August 1, 2012 began to operate new special red-and-white Metro train dedicated to the 175-anniversary of Russian Railways. For its creation, was used 81-740.4/741.4 (Rusich) rolling stock. The beginning of its operation was timed to the Day of Railwaymen (August 5). This train is decorated in the style of the company colors of the "Russian Railways". It's dedicated to the history, current condition and perspectives of the railway transport in Russia. The reproductions of historical photos in the saloon of train tells about most important events in the history of Russian Railways such as construction of the first Tsarskoye Selo Railway, Moscow-Saint Petersburg Railway, Trans-Siberian Railway, Baikal-Amur Mainline as well as about history of the Railway Stations and operation of railway transport during WWII.

The Tsarskoye Selo Railway was the first public railway line in the Russian Empire. It ran for 27 km (17 miles) from Saint Petersburg to Pavlovsk through the nearby (4 km) Tsarskoye Selo. Construction began in May 1836, and the first test trips were carried out the same year between Tsarskoye Selo and Pavlovsk, using horse-drawn trains. The line was officially opened on November 11, 1837, when an 8-carriage train was hauled by a steam locomotive between Saint Petersburg and Tsarskoye Selo. Until the construction of the Moscow – Saint Petersburg Railway in 1851, it was the only passenger train line in Russia. In 1899 it was merged into the Moscow-Windau-Rybinsk Railways and now forms part of the October Railway.

The first railways in Russia were short and narrow-track wooden and then steel lines, which were used in the 18th century to transport carriages with ore at numerous mines of the Urals. In particular, the Nizhny Tagil line built in 1833–1834 was equipped with a steam locomotive and could transport a few miners, together with the load of ore. The steam locomotive was constructed by the Russian engineers, father and son Cherepanovs. However, their design had not found application outside of their factory, and most hardware for the Tsarskoye Selo Railways, including rails, carriages, locomotives and railroad switches, was purchased abroad.

The first European railways had demonstrated their great economic potential, and in August 1834, the Russian Mining Ministry invited a prominent Austrian-Czech engineer Franz Anton von Gerstner for exploring the possibility of building railways in Russia. After several month of travel through the country, in January 1835, he submitted a written report to Nicholas I and then met him in person, suggesting to build railways between Moscow and St. Petersburg and then between Moscow, Kazan and Nizhny Novgorod. The proposal of Gerstner was evaluated by a commission headed by Mikhail Speransky. The commission found the project feasible and recommended to start with a short railway between St. Petersburg, Tsarskoye Selo and the nearby Pavlovsk. This resolution was supported by the imperial decrees of April 2 and April 27, 1836.

The first regular train left St. Petersburg on November 11, 1837 and in 35 minutes arrived to Tsarskoye Selo. This train of 8 carriages was pulled by a steam locomotive and its arrival was observed by numerous noble guests, including Nicholas I. Regular exploitation started in January 1838. Between January and April 1838, most trains were pulled by horses, and steam locomotives were used only on Sundays and public holidays. From April, horse power was eliminated, and almost 14.000 passengers had been served between April 16 and May 12. The trains ran without stops between St. Petersburg and Tsarskoye Selo, and from June 1838 were reaching Pavlovsk. All communication was first done by voice and whistle. An optical telegraph was installed in 1838. It consisted of piles separated by 1–2 km and a guard on duty in a shed nearby. Signals were set by raising 1, 2 or 3 black disks (daytime) or red lamps (night) on the pile and took about 30 minutes to transmit along the line. Electrical telegraph was installed in 1845, but dismantled in 1848 due to frequent failures; a more reliable system was set up in 1856.

The Tsarskoye Selo Railways had a short length, very limited capacity, and nearly no industrial value – it was mainly transporting the nobles for sightseeing in Tsarskoye Selo and festivities organized in Pavlovsk. Yet, it was regarded as an important step for development of the rail network in Russia. In particular, practice demonstrated the drawbacks of the 6-foot (1829 mm) rail spacing, and the following rail networks used the more standard 5-foot (1524 mm) tracks. In the 1840–1850s, the Tsarskoye Selo Railways was actively used for training of railroad personnel and various locomotive and railroad tests.



The train started journeying on August 1 when it connected "Vystavochnaya" and "Mezhdunarodnaya" stations of the Line 4. After that, it became to operate on Ring Line. New train became eighth special train in Moscow Metro. The seven others are "People's Militiaman" (operates since 1988; Line 2), "Kursk Salient" (2003; Line 1), "Red Arrow - 75 Years" (2006; Line 1), "Aquarelle" (2007; Line 3), "Reading Moscow" (2008; Line 11), Retro train "Sokolniki" (2010; Line 1) and "Poetry in the Metro" (2011; Line 4). The red-and-white exterior corresponds to the brand colours of the Russian Railways, while inside the carriage the walls are adorned with photographs and posters trailing the history of the Russian railway service. This is the second train celebrating the Russian Railways: the "Red Arrow - 75 Years" on Line 1 commemorates the eponymous sleeper train connecting Moscow and St. Petersburg via the Moscow–Saint Petersburg Railway since 1931.

I wonder, how the citizens talk about metro in Moscow or elsewhere in Russia. Since the lines have long names, and numbers are not in common use, right? Do they create abbreviations for line names?

FURTHER DEVELOPMENT - 2013:

As I wrote earlier, the pace of the construction of the new Metro stations in Moscow greatly increased after appointment of a new Mayor Sergey Sobyanin on October 21, 2010. As the Mayor of Moscow, Sobyanin has gradually relaxed the massive construction projects of his predecessor (Yury Luzhkov), for which he has won acclaim for the "most sane piece of city planning in years".

The extension of Moscow Metro network and general development of urban transport become one of the main purposes of the Sobyanin's program. In particular, on September 22, 2012 was reopened movement at the tramline along the Forest Street - the oldest tramline in Moscow (built in 1899). This tramline was closed on June 28, 2008 due to construction of business center at the place of turnover ring of the tramcars. In 2012 were reconstructed few tramlines in the city. On December 14, 2012 city authorities declared results of tender, according to which "Uralvagonzavod" research and production corporation along with the Canadian engineering firm "Bombardier", will produce 120 express trams for the city of Moscow by April 1, 2015.

Sergey Sobyanin refused to finance the Luzhkov's project - The Fourth Ring Road (beltway, which was planned to be built between Third Ring Road and Moscow Automobile Ring Road). Therefore, funding for construction of the Moscow Metro was increased almost in four times. At the present time, there ongoing Metro construction and preparation works in the several districts of the city. City officials have promised that 70 new Metro stations will be built by 2020 while total length of Moscow Metro lines will be increased almost in 1.5 times and will reach mark of 442 km.

Now it is very difficult to comment plans of authorities for Metro construction. Firstly, the officials have tended to declare about most optimistic plans. Secondly, these plans are tended to be change during year. Nevertheless, I will try to write about the plans for Metro construction for the near and distant future.

NEW METRO DEPOTS

For the first time since 1995, in Moscow will be inaugurated new Metro depots - "Brateyevo" (Line 2) and "Mitino" (Line 3). Currently there are 15 Metro depots in Moscow, the latest ("Pechatniki") was commissioned on December 27, 1995. The commissioning of two new Metro depots will be logical conclusion of the southern extension of the Line 2 and western extension of the Line 3, during which in December 2012 were opened Metro stations "Alma-Atinskaya" and "Pyatnitskoye Shosse" respectively.

METRO DEPOT "BRATEYEVO"

Metro depot "Brateyevo" (№16) is a future Metro depot near the Gorodnya Rivulet, in the Brateyevo District, Southern Administrative Okrug. It's planned to be serve Line 2 and Line 10. Metro depot "Brateyevo" will be built at the construction plot with area of 17 hectares. The preparation works were started in the end of 1990s, but it were stopped very soon. It were resumed only in 2010. The pile driving for the foundation of the building began in March 2012. The project of construction is consist of two parts. The one part is Metro depot with planned capacity of 11 trains (not including car wash), it will be smallest Metro depot in Moscow. Also, this complex will be include plant for repairment of rolling stock. The total area of all buildings will be 10.1 hectares. According to existing plans, the corps for night maintenance of trains should be commissioned in December 2013, the corps for repairment of rolling stock - in 2014.

THE SECOND VESTIBULE OF THE "BAUMANSKAYA" STATON

The another necessary project is construction of the second vestibule of Metro station "Baumanskaya" ("Nikolay Bauman").

"Baumanskaya" is a station on the Line 3 of the Moscow Metro. The station was built as a part of the third stage of the Moscow Metro construction (1938-1944) and opened on January 18, 1944. It was named in honour of a famous Russian revolutionary Nikolay Bauman (1873-1905).

"Baumanskaya" is a deep-level (depth - 32.5 m) three-vaulted station of pylon type built to the standard design. The station was designed by Boris Iofan and Yury Zenkevich and opened on January 18, 1944. The theme of the station's decor is the work at the home front during the Great Patriotic War. The Art Deco design features pink pylons of Gazgan marble, each of which contains with two ledges of red polished porphyry. The sculptures of Red Army men, a Woman Partisan, a Worker and a Farmer and others (sculptor Vyacheslav Andreyev) can be seen in the niches of the station hall. The mosaic portrait of Vladimir Lenin against fluttering banners is in the end hall of the central hall. The track walls are lined with grey and black marble and the floor is paved with grey, black and red marble. There are light fittings behind the cornice over the pylons. Bronze and marble grilles hide the ventilation shafts.

The ground-level vestibule at Bauman Street is a high pavillion faced on the inside with light Gazgan marble. The vestibule was re-faced with ceramic tiles in 1960s. There is a mosaic panel over the vault of the escalator tunnel called "Glory to the Soviet Army" (artist: Isaac Rabinovich). The vestibule contains a bust of Nikolay Bauman (sculptor: Alexey Shlykov). This station is very busy, as one of the biggest Moscow institutes (Bauman Moscow State Technical University) is located not far.

"Baumanskaya" is the one of crowded stations in Moscow Metro.

The facts:
1) There are at least 3 major universities near the station: Bauman Moscow State Technical University main and secondary buildings Moscow State University of Civil Engineering and Moscow State Academy of Law as well as numerous offices of the business companies.
2) Specific configuration of central hall like garmon before the escalator, where some passengers try to short jump queue.
3) Most passengers prefer "Baumanskaya" to other station if they would get to the area which is at half-way between "Baumanskaya" and another station even if causes additional transfer or even best accessible by ground transport.

The escalators at "Baumanskaya" station are most oldest in the Moscow Metro. It were installed in 1944 and were not replaced since that time. The previous record belonged to the escalators in the southern vestibule of "Mayakovskaya" station, which operated during 67 years before its replacement (since 1938 till 2005). Currently "Baumanskaya" is the sole Metro station in Moscow, where remained escalators with wooden parts. Since the end of 2000s, city authorities plans to replace the ageing escalators. However, it will lead to the closing of station and to creation of transport collapse in this area. That's why authorities plans for construction of the second vestibule of the station. After the opening of second vestibule, it will be possible to start reconstruction of the old exit with minimal complications for passengers.

On February 24, 2012 the Commission's Working Group of the Moscow government for urban planning within the boundaries of noteworthy places and areas of protection of the objects of cultural heritage recommended to demolish 13 buildings in order to construct the second vestibule of the "Baumanskaya" station. On March 14, 2012 there was announced contest for best project of the planning of the second vestibule. According to the project, second exit will be located at the former territory of "Fizpribor" Plant, near Bakunin Street and Friedrich Engels Street. It planned to be opened in October 2013. However, currently the construction or preparation works in this area are not started yet.

SOUTH-EASTERN EXTENSION OF THE LINE 7

In 2013 Line 7 planned to be extended on 5.1 km southeast with two new stations - "Lermontovsky Prospekt" and "Zhulebino". This extension should to solve problem with overcrowding of the "Vykhino" station, the southeastern terminus station of this line. It's planned that as result of the extension, the passenger traffic will be redistributed at the southern radius of the Line 7. This segment is being built by "Bammetrostroy" construction company, the headquarters of which is located in the Siberian city of Krasnoyarsk.

"VYKHINO EFFECT"

"Vykhino" is a station on Moscow Metro's Line 7. Opened on December 31, 1966 as the final part of the Zhdanovsky Radius, the station has remained the southeastern terminus of the line since. The station is unique in many respects. First of all, it was the last station in Moscow (not counting the reconstruction of "Vorobyovy Gory" in 2002 and the light Metro in 2003) to be built above ground, and the one of few to have side (as opposed to island) platforms. In fact, the Metro station is only part of a combined transfer node, the rest of which consists of the mainline suburban railway (Kazanskoye direction).

Originally designed by Alexander Strelkov and Viktor Cheryomin, the whole complex has four platforms, two of which are island platform. The railway uses four out of the six tracks, whilst the Metro uses the other two. It is the only station where is impossible to get from one platform to another without leaving the Metro. Two pedestrian underpasses exist for the transfer between platforms (the transfer complex is above ground level and passengers must ascend to get onto the platforms). Direct railway to Metro connections are only possible from Moscow-bound mainline trains onto centre-bound Metro trains, where the combined platform is divided lengthwise between the Metro and the railway. To transfer in the opposite direction, the underpasses must be used.

When the transfer complex was built, the long-term passenger load was underestimated. As a result, "Vykhino" became the busiest and most crowded station of the Metro system, due to its position at the edge of Moscow, near many highly populated areas of the hinterland. In addition to the railway traffic, "Vykhino" also has a large bus station nearby and many passengers from the surrounding Moscow Region travel to central Moscow via "Vykhino". As a result, the station has some of the largest passenger numbers of the Metro network — 176.629 passengers per day at the start of 2009. It's a second busiest Metro station in Russia after "Prospekt Veteranov" ("Veterans Avenue"; opened on October 5, 1977) in St. Petersburg. On the morning rush hour, each third train does not board at this and next - "Ryazansky Prospekt" ("Ryazan Avenue") stations in order to pick up passengers at "Kuzminki" station with strong bus service.

Initially the railway commuter passenger trains stopped just outside the Metro pavilion. However, since the early 1990s they have been making longer journeys well beyond the Metro trains' arrival zone and most of the passengers were forced to walk a train length. By the early 2000s it was clear that the transfer point needed a major reconstruction. In 2004 the station was closed to mainline trains (passengers were told to use the Kazan Rail Terminal instead). During this time the old 1960s concrete hinged roofs on the railway platforms were knocked down. These were replaced with modern light green and white transparent roofs with decorative features. The stairwells from the underpasses were covered with separate pavilions where turnstiles were inserted, and the concrete floor was re-paved with stone. The combined Metro and railway platform was re-divided along the width where a pavilion was built. Thus the centre-bound Metro platform was nearly trebled in area (accounting for the dismantled ticket offices as well), and safety walls were installed on the railway side. The Metro part of the station kept its hinged roofs, but these were completely repainted and the crude lighting elements in the hinges were replaced with never ones. Giving the platform a cleaner look, the underpasses were also widened and cleaned up with the old tile work replaced by marble. Additional underpass was built as well. The complex was re-opened to the public on October 2, 2004.

Since there are no direct connections between Metro platforms, the change of train crews takes place at "Ryazansky Prospekt" ("Ryazan Avenue") station. Behind the station is a surface cross junction used for reversal and the tracks lead on to the Metro depot "Vykhino".

Originally the station (as well as the radius) was called "Zhdanovskaya" after the famous Soviet revolutionary and politician Andrey Zhdanov (1896-1948). However on January 13, 1989 the station was renamed after name of the district in which it is located.

"LERMONTOVSKY PROSPEKT"

"Lermontovsky Prospekt" ("Lermontov Avenue") is a future station on the Line 7 of the Moscow Metro. It will be located at the intersection of the Lermontov Avenue and Khvalynsk Boulevard, in the Vykhino-Zhulebino District, South-Eastern Administrative Okrug. This station will be located outside the Moscow Automobile Ring Road beltway. In the future there is planned to built transfer to the "Kosino" station of the future Kozhukhovskaya Line. Also, there are plans to build Transport Terminal at the northern side of Lermontov Avenue.

In August 2010 was presented project of the southern extension of the Line 7 with two new stations - "Pronskaya" and "Zhulebino". "Pronskaya" station was planned to be built near the Pronsk Street and Zhulebino Boulevard. However, in February 2011, according to the Order of new Mayor of Moscow Sergey Sobyanin, it was decided to built one of planned stations at the intersection of the Lermontov Avenue and Khvalynsk Boulevard. As result, planned "Pronskaya" station was officially renamed into "Lermontovsky Prospekt" ("Lermontov Avenue").

The station named after Lermontov Avenue, near which it is located. This 2.1-km long avenue became part of Moscow on June 4, 1986. It was named after great Russian writer Mikhail Lermontov (1814-1841), who became the most important Russian poet after Alexander Pushkin's death in 1837. Lermontov is considered the supreme poet of Russian literature alongside Pushkin and the greatest figure in Russian Romanticism. His influence on later Russian literature is still felt in modern times, not only through his poetry, but also through his prose, which founded the tradition of the Russian psychological novel.

The construction works were started in the end of August 2011 when began preparation of territory (demolition of private houses and other buildings). In November 2011 began construction of the station. On June 21, 2012 began construction of the 1.78-km left tunnel in direction to the "Vykhino" station with using of TBM "Herrenknecht-736". It was finished on November 7, 2012. By November 25, 2012 there were built vault and platform of station. On December 10, 2012 there was mounted TBM "Robbins-371" for construction of the 1.91-km right tunnel between "Lermontovsky Prospekt" and "Vykhino" stations. The construction of right tunnel began on December 29, 2012 and planned to be finished in the spring of 2013.

The architects of the station are Leonid Borzenkov (project leader), Mikhail Volovich, Sergey Kostikov, Tamara Nagieva, Natalya Soldatova and Vasily Uvarov. "Lermontovsky Prospekt" will be shallow station of single-vaulted type. It will be decorated in the five colours (spectrum from green to red-orange). There will be two vestibules with seven exits at the both sides of Lermontov Avenue. The walls of the station vestibules and passageways will be faced with ceramic tiles. The walls of the one vestibule (which closest to the city center) will be red-orange while those of the opposite vestibule will be green.
