The lower floor will eventually house an entrance to a transfer corridor which would link the station to the exit on the north-eastern side of Vasilyevsky Island. That exit is currently under construction. It will be located at the opposite side of the Little Neva River, near the Makarov Embankment, Middle Avenue of Vasilyevsky Island and Cadet Line/1st Line of Vasilyevsky Island. Currently there is only station at the Vasilyevsky Island - "Vasileostrovskaya" (Line 3). However, this station is overloaded and needs in reconstruction. That's why it's important to build second vestibule of Metro station "Sportivnaya".

The new underground vestibule will be build near Tuchkov Bridge at the intersection of the Makarov Embankment and Cadet Line/1st Line of Vasilyevsky Island. For the first time in Russian Metro system, there will be installed travelators (moving walkways) for transportation of passengers under the Little Neva River. There will be placed stained-glass on sport theme in the new vestibule. About half of the transfer tunnel (~100-150 of 300 metres) was already built in 1991-1993. The preparation works for construction of the second vestibule began in April 2012. The new vestibule is scheduled to be opened in 2015.

On January 5, 2013 Metro station "Petrogradskaya" was closed for reconstruction.

"PETROGRADSKAYA"

"Petrogradskaya" ("Petrograd") is a station on the Moskovsko-Petrogradskaya Line 2 of the Saint Petersburg Metro. Its ground-level vestibule located at the intersection of the Stony Island Avenue and Greater Avenue of Petrograd Side, near the Leo Tolstoy Square, in the Aptekarsky Ostrov Municipal Okrug, Petrogradsky District.

Metro station "Petrogradskaya" was opened on July 1, 1963. The project name of station was "Ploshchad Lva Tolstogo" ("Leo Tolstoy Square"). The name of "Petrogradskaya" was given due to its location on Petrograd Side, one of the historical districts of Saint Petersburg. It is located within the administrative boundaries of the present-day Petrogradsky District. Petrograd Side (in the 18th century - City Side, until 1914 - Petersburg Side) is the joint name of the territory that includes the following islands: Petrograd Island, Pharmacy Island, Petrovsky Island and Hare Island. Before 1914, it was known as Petersburg Side. On August 31, 1914 the city of Saint Petersburg was renamed into Petrograd due to strong anti-German sentiments in Russian society after beginning of WWI. As result, Petersburg Side was renamed into Petrograd Side. In 1924 the city was renamed into Leningrad, in 1991 - into Saint Petersburg. However, the name of Petrograd Side was never changed since 1914.

Development of what would become the Petrograd Side began on May 27, 1703 when Russian Tsar Peter the Great (1672-1725) began construction of the Peter and Paul Fortress on Hare Island - the original citadel of Saint Petersburg. At the same time, the city centre with administrative and trade establishments and residential buildings for the nobility (the wooden Cabin of Peter the Great has been preserved) was developing to the east of the fortress on the bank of the Neva River (present-day Trinity Square). Under Peter the Great, this district became the commercial and administrative center of Saint Petersburg. It was under Peter the Great that City Island (now Petrograd Island) emerged as center of the city. In 1708, to the north of the fortress, Crownwork was constructed; to the west of it, Tax Court (in 18th century customs establishment) appeared (hence the name of Tax Embankment). In the first third of the 18th century, the radial combined with circular plan, unique for St. Petersburg and typical of Old-Russian towns, was developed (Crownwork Avenue still retains its original "ring"). St. Matthew's Church (the territory of present-day St. Matthew Lane, demolished in the 1932), Presentation of the Holy Virgin Church (the intersection of Greater Cannon Street and Vvedenskaya Street, demolished in the 1932) and Assumption Church (now Vladimir Cathedral) served as the main focus of this district in the 1730s. There were following settlements: Tatar (the region of Tatar Lane), Cannon (the region of Little Cannon Street), Gunpowder (the region of Greater Gunpowder Street), Gunsmith (the region of Peace Street), Monetary (the region of Greater Monetary Street), Pharmacy of the herb garden (now Saint Petersburg Botanical Garden) and Surgical Instruments Works (today "Red Guardian" Public Company). After the administrative centre of St. Petersburg was moved to Vasilyevsky Island in the 1720s, and later in 1730s - to Admiralty Side, and after the construction of stone buildings to the north of Crownwork was banned, Petrograd Side became a suburban region. Here, Nevsky, Peterburgsky, Yamburgsky, Koporsky and Belozersky regiments were quartered. Greater Avenue, which was criss-crossed with a numerous small streets, belonging to the former regimental companies, became the main street of Petrograd Side. This district was settled over time by craftsmen and military men, prospering and becoming more populated through the 19th and early 20th centuries. By the end of the 19th century, vast territories to the north-west and east of Petrograd Side and on Pharmacy Island remained vacant. The construction of Trinity Bridge in 1903 initiated the intensive development of Petrograd Side along Greater Nevka Embankment, with industrial zones formed on Petrovsky Island and Pharmacy Island. The main transit thoroughfare of Petrograd Side is Stony Island Avenue. The present district was formed in 1917, with the Primorsky District being split off in 1936. In the 1920s-1930s, a number of large public buildings and constructions were erected on Petrograd Side: House of Culture of Industrial Co-operation (now Lensovet House of Culture), Lenin Stadium (now Petrovsky Stadium), Stalin Transport Academy, as well as residential houses: First Lensovet House, the House of Experimental Medicine Institute's Assistants, House for Former Tsarist Political Prisoners, etc. During the Siege of Leningrad of 1941-1944, all wooden houses that had still existed were demolished for firewood; later, public gardens were laid out on their sites. After the end of Second World War, the existing thoroughfares of Petrograd Side were reconstructed with some new ones built (Avenue of Medics, a part of Sand Embankment, etc.), banks of the Karpovka River were faced with granite, new capital bridges (Tuchkov Bridge, Builders Bridge (now Exchange Bridge), Freedom Bridge (now Saint Sampson Bridge), Grenadier Bridge and Kantemirovsky Bridge) were constructed. In 1963, Metro stations "Gorkovskaya" and "Petrogradskaya" were opened. The television centre with a tower was put into operation. The current boundaries of Petrogradsky District date back to 1973. In the early 21th century, vacant lots of Petrograd Side are built up mainly with elite residential houses, industrial enterprises are being forced out by trade and commercial centres.

The architects of station were Viktor Belov, Anatoly Govorkovsky, Vladimir Rivin, Natan Tregubov and Ludvig Shimakovsky. "Petrogradskaya" is deep-level station (depth - 53 m). It's second of 10 Metro stations of the so-called "Horizontal Lift" type that were opened in Leningrad (now St. Petersburg) in 1961-1972. The crimped surface of the walls of the underground hall is tiled with white ceramic. Rear wall is decorated with aureate panel against the blue grating background with profiles of worker and kolkhoz woman, which expose the theme of revolutionary Petrograd (artist - Genrikh Vasilyev). The exit from station is located at the northern end, with three escalators. Previously there were blue platform screen doors, but in 2007 it were replaced with doors of black colour. It spoiled decoration of station. The ground-level vestibule is built according to the project of architectors Alexander Andreyev and Yaroslava Moskalenko. In 1968 it was built into the building of "House of Fashions", located at the intersection of the Stony Island Avenue and Greater Avenue of Petrograd Side, near the Leo Tolstoy Square. There is underground slope to a pedestrian underpass (originally with escalators, dismantled later). Previously there was located stained-glass which illustrated history of fashion. There were depicted 6 pairs of men and women, dressed in the costumes of different eras. It was destroyed on December 31, 1993 as result of the explosion and following fire in the building of "House of Fashions".

The station was closed for reconstruction on January 5, 2013. Previously there were plans to close it on June 1, 2011 and June 1, 2012. There will be reconstructed vestibule and will be held works for waterproofing of the escalator tunnel. Also, there will be reconstructed platform screen doors and escalators. There are no plans to restore destroyed stained-glass in the vestibule above escalator tunnel. Moreover, aureate panel with profiles of worker and kolkhoz woman will be removed from the end of platform hall. The vestibule is scheduled to reopen after reconstruction in November 2013.

FURTHER DEVELOPMENT - 2015-2016:

In 2015-2016 the Line 5 will be extended approximately on 7 km south to the Shushary industrial area. There will be opened three stations and new Metro depot.

The new segment will be non-typical for Saint Petersburg Metro, which is considered world's most deepest subway system. Due to difficult geological conditions, 60 of 67 Metro stations in St. Petersburg were built at deep level. There are only three shallow stations - "Avtovo" (Line 1; opened on November 15, 1955), "Leninsky Prospekt" ("Lenin Avenue"; Line 1; opened on October 5, 1977), "Prospekt Veteranov" ("Veterans Avenue"; Line 1; opened on October 5, 1977) and four ground-level stations - "Kupchino" (Line 2; opened on December 25, 1972), "Devyatkino" (Line 1; opened on December 29, 1978), "Rybatskoye" (Line 3; opened on December 28, 1984) and "Parnas" ("Parnassus"; Line 2; opened on December 22, 2006).

There will be built one shallow and one ground-level station at the new segment. In addition, for the first time in Russian Metro system, there will be built one large tunnel (diameter - 9.4 m) for the serving two track ways between Metro stations "Prospekt Slavy" and "Dunayskaya" instead of two tunnels of standard diameter (6.1 m, formerly - 5.5 m). The project of construction of this segment was adopted in 2010. On April 16, 2012 there was signed contract between representatives of St. Petersburg "Metrostroy" construction company and "Herrenknecht AG" for purchasing of TBM of larger diameter. The mounting of this TBM is scheduled to start in the spring of 2013.

New segment is scheduled to open in 2015-2016.

"PROSPEKT SLAVY"

"Prospekt Slavy" ("Glory Avenue") is a future station of the Frunzensko-Primorskaya Line (Line 5) of the Saint Petersburg Metro. It will be located near the intersections of the Bucharest Street with Glory Avenue and Alpine Lane, in the Municipal Okrug #72, Frunzensky District.

The station is named after 3.6-km long Glory Avenue near which it will be located. This avenue was named on January 16, 1964 in honour of the military victories and feats of labour of Leningrad citizens during WWII. The road was constructed in the 1960s as the main thoroughfare for Kupchino area (where was large-scale housing construction at that time) and forms a part of the Central Ring Route (in the 1960s, a driveway under Vitebsk direction of the October Railway was constructed; in 1974, Nevsky overpass was built above railway station "Sortirovochnaya-Moskovskaya" of the Moscow direction of the October Railway). The avenue was built up with residential and public houses since the 1960s (architect Alexander Naumov, David Goldgor and others). The area close to Sofia Street was built up in the 1950s-1960s. In the 1980s-1990s, four high-rise buildings emphasising the bend of Glory Avenue were constructed. In 1982, the park was laid out on the site of former horticultures by the canal of the Volkovka River (now Park of Soldiers-Internationalists). The monument to Soviet soldiers fallen in Afghanistan was opened in this park in 1998 (sculptor Nikolay Gordievsky, architect Natalya Tarasova). The granite bust of Marshal Georgy Zhukov (1896-1974) was placed near #28 Glory Avenue (1995, sculptor Vladimir Vinnichenko). On the even-numbered (left) side of the Glory Avenue, a complex of shops quartered in the halls of the former "Kupchinsky" department store and casino-club "Glory" are located. On the intersection of the Bucharest Street and Glory Avenue, the construction of St. George Church was completed in 2002. The building of Bobkov branch of the Russian Customs Academy (#52 Sofia Street) overlooks Hamburg Square.

The construction of the tunnels between future Metro stations "Mezhdunarodnaya" and "Prospekt Slavy" began in 1990s. There were dug 300 metres of tunnel in 1995-1997. By October 9, 2012 the construction of the left tunnel was finished and right tunnel was almost built. The preparation works at the territory of construction site began in December 2012.

The architects of the station are Dmitry Boytsov (project leader) and Marina Pavlova. "Prospekt Slavy" will be deep-level three-vaulted station of the pylon type (depth ~ 30-40 m). The station will be decorated in red and white colours in accordance with its name. The large-scale stained-glass made of colored glass in the aluminum frame will be major stylistic element of station. It will be placed along the axis of station. The images at the stained-glass will remind stars and banners. The pylons of station will be faced with white marble. The floor will be paved with grey and red granite. The station will have two underground vestibules. The northern vestibule will be located near intersection of the Bucharest Street and Glory Avenue, the southern - near intersection of the Bucharest Street and Alpine Lane. It will be linked with underpasses under the Bucharest Street. The walls of vestibule will be decorated with red and white marble, the columns - with grey granite.

"DUNAYSKAYA"

"Dunayskaya" ("Danube") is a future station of the Frunzensko-Primorskaya Line (Line 5) of the Saint Petersburg Metro. It will be located near the intersection of the Bucharest Street and Danube Avenue, in the Balkansky Municipal Okrug, Frunzensky District.

The station is named after 6.4-km long Danube Avenue near which it will be located. The project name of station was "Dunaysky Prospekt" ("Danube Avenue"). This avenue was named on October 28, 1968 in the honour of Danube River. This name is derived due to fact that avenue crosses few streets which named after capitals of former Socialist countries through which the Danube River flows (Belgrade Street, Bucharest Street, Budapest Street, Prague Street and Sofia Street). Danube Avenue was built between Predportovaya Street (Moskovsky District) and Sofia Street (Frunzensky District), through historical areas of Srednaya Rogatka and Kupchino. It was laid in the 1970s-1980s to serve as portion of a major transport artery, which was built later. Initially it was four-lane road with wide separatory lawn in the centre, without linking with Moskovsky and Frunzensky Districts. The part of Danube Avenue at the territory of Frunzensky District was built in 1973, its part at the territory of Moskovsky District - in 1981, Dunaysky overpass between these parts (above Vitebsk direction of the October Railway) - in 2004. The segment between Predportovaya Street and Pulkovo Highway became part of avenue on October 16, 1978. In 2004-2007 Danube Avenue was reconstructed and widened. Currently it's one of the main magistral roads in the Kupchino area.

The Danube is a river in Central Europe, the continent's second longest after the Volga River. Classified as an international waterway, it originates in the town of Donaueschingen which is in the Black Forest of Germany at the confluence of the rivers Brigach and Breg. The Danube then flows southeast for 2872 km (1785 miles), passing through four Central European capitals (Vienna, Bratislava, Budapest and Belgrade) before emptying into the Black Sea via the Danube Delta in Romania and Ukraine. Once a long-standing frontier of the Roman Empire, the river passes through or touches the borders of ten countries: Romania (29.0% of basin area), Hungary (11.6%), Serbia (10.2%), Austria (10.0%), Germany (7.0%), Slovakia (5.9%), Bulgaria (5.9%), Croatia (4.4%), Ukraine (3.8%), and Moldova (1.6%). In addition to the bordering countries, the drainage basin includes parts of nine more countries: Bosnia and Herzegovina (4.6%), Czech Republic (2.9%), Slovenia (2.0%), Montenegro (0.9%), Switzerland (0.2%), Italy (<0.1%), Poland (<0.1%), Republic of Macedonia (<0.1%) and Albania (<0.1%). The highest point of the drainage basin is the summit of Piz Bernina at the Italo–Swiss border, 4049 metres (13284 ft). The Danube's watershed extends into many other countries. Many Danubian tributaries are important rivers in their own right, navigable by barges and other shallow-draught boats. The Danube Delta has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1991. Its wetlands (on the Ramsar list of wetlands of international importance) support vast flocks of migratory birds, including the endangered Pygmy Cormorant (Phalacrocorax pygmaeus). The Danube Delta is the second largest river delta in Europe, after the Volga Delta, and is the best preserved on the continent. The greater part of the Danube Delta lies in Romania (Tulcea county), while its northern part, on the left bank of the Chilia arm, is situated in Ukraine (Odessa Region). The Danube delta hosts over 300 species of birds as well as 45 freshwater fish species in its numerous lakes and marshes. Along its course, the Danube is a source of drinking water for about twenty million people. Important tourist and natural spots along the Danube include the Wachau Valley, the Danube-Auen National Park in Austria, Gemenc Forest in Hungary, the Upper Danube Nature Park in Germany, Kopački rit nature park in Croatia, Iron Gate gorge in Serbia and Romania, the Danube Delta in Romania, and the Srebarna Nature Reserve in Bulgaria. The Danube Banks in Budapest are a part of UNESCO World Heritage sites, they can be viewed from a number of sightseeing cruises offered in the city. The Danube Bend is also a popular tourist destination.

The preparation works at the territory of construction site began in January 2013.

The architects of the station are Dmitry Boytsov (project leader) and Marina Pavlova. "Dunayskaya" will be shallow single-vaulted station of the column type with side platforms (depth ~ 15 m). This type of construction, non-typical for Saint Petersburg Metro, was adopted in the autumn of 2010. It will be fourth shallow station in the Saint Petersburg Metro. The whole station's complex will consist of few tiers. The underground vestibules will be located at the upper tier, underground hall - at the lower tier, service rooms - at the intermediate tiers. The main theme of station's decor is a image of Danube River. The wavelike decorative ceilings of the station and vestibules will be have blue colour like waves of Danube River. There will be installed light fixtures at the ceilings. The round columns will be decorated with blue ceramic panels, the walls of station - with light-yellow marble. There will be separatory wall between track ways. It will be decorated with stained-glasses with images of the European cities that situated on the banks of Danube River. In addition, there will be placed mosaic panel with image of "The Blue Danube" at the wall opposite cash office. There will be installed 12 escalators - 3 at each end of both side platforms. The platform of station will be located along the Bucharest Street. There will be built two underground vestibules. The northern vestibule will be located near intersection of the Bucharest Street and Danube Avenue, the southern vestibule - near intersection of the Bucharest Street and Jaroslav Hašek Street. Both vestibules will be linked with underpasses under the Bucharest Street.

"BALKANSKAYA"

"Balkanskaya" ("Balkan") is a planned station of the Frunzensko-Primorskaya Line (Line 5) of the Saint Petersburg Metro. It was planned to be located near the intersections of the Bucharest Street with Aleksa Dundić Street and Little Balkan Street, in the Balkansky Municipal Okrug, Frunzensky District.

The station is named after Balkansky Municipal Okrug in which it was planned to be located. This okrug got its name because the names of many streets and avenues in this and neighboring area are connected with Balkan Peninsula (such as Aleksa Dundić Street, Bucharest Street, Carpathian Street, Dimitrov Street, Little Balkan Street, Little Carpathian Street, Plovdiv Street, Shipka Lane, Sofia Street, Zagreb Boulevard, etc).

There were plans to build "Balkanskaya" as intermediate station between Metro stations "Dunayskaya" and "Shushary" ("Yuzhnaya"). "Balkanskaya" was planned to be overground station. However, in 2009, in order to accelerate pace of construction of the southern radius of the Line 5 and to reduce cost of construction works, it was decided to refuse from this station.

Currently there are no any plans to build this station in the future.

"SHUSHARY"

"Shushary" is a future southern terminal station of the Frunzensko-Primorskaya Line (Line 5) of the Saint Petersburg Metro. It will be located near the Automotive Plant Driveway, beyond the Saint Petersburg Ring Road and October Railway, in the Municipal Okrug "Shushary settlement", Pushkinsky District.

The project name of this station was "Yuzhnaya" ("Southern") due to location near Southern CHP power station. On April 3, 2009 it was officially renamed into "Shushary". But nevertheless, the name of "Yuzhnaya" still used in the talks by Metro workers and city administration.

Shushary is a name of municipal settlement in Pushkinsky District of the federal city of St. Petersburg, located on the slopes of the Pulkovo Heights. The village of Shushary (Susary) was marked at the map of the Saint Petersburg Governorate of 1770. This name is derived from Finnish word "Suosaari" that means "marshy heights". On November 11, 1837 was launched first public railway line in the Russian Empire - Tsarskoye Selo Railway from Saint Petersburg to Pavlovsk through the nearby (4 km) Tsarskoye Selo. Shushary gained importance in 1838 as the location of the first railway siding in the Russian Empire and one of the first railway stations in the country. Workers' settlement of Shushary was formed in 1958 on account of the creation of a state farm of the same name (today agro-industrial enterprise State Farm Shushary). There was Shushary village seven kilometres to the south-west of it, on Moscow Highway, on the place where it is intersected by the Kuzminka River. Present-day Shushary features a training centre of the Academy of Management and Agrobusiness of Non-chernozyom zone of Russia, "Niva" and "Avtomobilist" hotels, large motor transport and logistic complexes (to the east of Moscow Highway and 2.5 km to the south of the railway station). The Open-Air Steam-Engine Museum is located on a railway station to the south of Shushary. In 2002, a new six-lane overpass over the railway was constructed as part of the "Russia" highway in Shushary. In the beginning of the 21st century, Shushary was transformed into an industrial area comprising automotive plants such as "Toyota Motor Corporation", "General Motors", "Magna International" and "Scania". The population of Shushary is 22.652 inhabitants (2010 Census).

The preparation works at the territory of construction site of station began in December 2012.

The architects of the station are Dmitry Boytsov (project leader) and Marina Pavlova. "Shushary" will be ground-level closed-type station with side platforms, similar to Metro station "Parnas" ("Parnassus"; Line 2; opened on December 22, 2006). It will be fifth ground-level station in the Saint Petersburg Metro. There will be built one ground-level Metro vestibule at the Automotive Plant Driveway, in the industrial area of Shushary, near future Metro depot "Yuzhnoye". Also, there are plans to build pedestrian overpass over the Automotive Plant Driveway. The facade of the station's complex will be faced with light-grey ceramic panels. The central part of the facade will be decorated with two stained-glasses. The floor of the ticket hall will be paved with granite. The walls and columns of the vestibule will be faced with marble. The station planned to serve workers of the industrial enterprises of the Shushary area as well as residents of the neighboring municipal cities of Pushkin and Kolpino of the federal city of Saint Petersburg.
