This decision gives a small hope on co-funding of Metro construction from federal budget. After opening of Metro station "Alabinskaya", city authorities have plan for extension of the Line 1 on west with two new stations - "Samarskaya" ("Samara") and "Teatralnaya" ("Theatre"). When these two stations will be opened, the Soviet plan of 1980 for construction of the Line 1 will be almost realized.

However, it's need to add that all undermentioned plans will be realized only subject to federal funding. Without it, Metro construction in Samara will be ceased after opening of "Alabinskaya" - until better times.

"SAMARSKAYA"

"Samarskaya" ("Samara") is a future station on the Line 1 of the Samara Metro. It will be located near the Samara Square, between the intersections of the Samara Street with Fair Street and Mayakovsky Street, in the Leninsky District. The distance between future Metro stations "Alabinskaya" and "Samarskaya" will be 1534 metres.

The station is named due to location near Samara Square and Samara Street. It will be first Metro station in Russia that named after city in which it located (may be, except Metro station "Petrogradskaya" in Saint Petersburg). Since January 27, 1935 till January 25, 1991 this city was known as Kuybyshev, in the honour of the Russian revolutionary and prominent Soviet politician Valerian Kuybyshev (1888-1935). According to Soviet plan of 1980, this Metro station was named "Samarskaya". Thus this name was supposed to be tribute to the city's history. But after returning of the historical name of the city, this idea lost own topicality.

Samara Square is a square in the Leninsky District that borders with the Samara Street, Fair Street and Young Guard Street. Before the October Revolution of 1917, it was known as the Parish Square, Trade Square and Resurrection Square. At those times, at this square was trade of vegetables, milk, hay, wood, and other sorts of stuff. In 1864 there was built Resurrection Church. In Soviet times, this church was demolished, the square was paved, but the trading market existed for another 40 years. On July 8, 1926 this square was named Samara Square. In early 1960s there was built garden square at the place of former trading market (architect - A. Ter-Sarkisov). In 1971, to the 54th anniversary of October Revolution, there was opened new square with Monument of Glory near the Samara Square. In 1975 was opened Victory garden square with 30-jet fountain that connects the Glory Square and Samara Square. On May 6, 1977 in the centre of garden square at the Samara Square was opened bust of Minister of Defense of the Soviet Union Dmitry Ustinov (1908-1984) who was born in Samara. The sculptor of bust was Lev Kerbel, architect - G. Lebedev. On January 16, 1985 this square was renamed into Ustinov Square, but on July 25, 1988 it was renamed back to Samara Square.

On April 3, 2012 there was started construction of dead ends for turnover of trains beyond the future Metro station "Alabinskaya" (length - 0.4 km). These dead ends will be part of tunnels between Metro station "Alabinskaya" and "Samarskaya". But the problem that there is necessary to demolish 21 wooden houses (where lives 119 families – 392 residents) at the Samara Street for the further construction of tunnels in direction to Metro station "Samarskaya". This problem is not solved yet.

The original project of the station was designed in 1980s by architects Galina Morgun and Alexey Morgun. In 2008 original design was modified by architect Polina Koryakina. "Samarskaya" will be shallow single-vaulted station. The track walls will be faced with red granite. The vault of the station will be made from bleached reinforced concrete. The floor will be paved with white, red and gray granite. There will be installed suspended metal arcuate-shape light fixtures. The letters at the track walls will be made from marble. There will be built two underground vestibules.

"TEATRALNAYA"

"Teatralnaya" ("Theatre") is a future western terminal station on the Line 1 of the Samara Metro. It will be located near the Kuybyshev Square and the intersection of the Galaktionov Street and Red Army Street, in the Leninsky District.

According to Soviet plan of 1980, this Metro station was supposed to be named "Ploshchad Kuybysheva" ("Kuybyshev Square") in the honour of square which located nearby. Kuybyshev Square is the square in the Leninsky District which is formed by Chapayev Street, Vilonov Street, Galaktionov Street and Red Army Street. This square was firstly mentioned at the General Plan of Samara of 1853. There was supposed to build large cathedral building at this square. On April 29, 1866, in the birthday of Russian Emperor Alexander II (1818-1881), there was held consecration of the construction site of the future cathedral. On June 6, 1869 there was held solemn laying of new cathedral (capacity - 2500 persons). The construction of the Cathedral of Christ the Saviour under project of architect Ernest Gibert (1823-1909) was finished only on September 11, 1894. As result, the square was known as Cathedral Square. Around the cathedral were planted four garden squares which were named in the honour of heir to the throne, future Russian Emperor Nicholas II (1868-1918). On September 1, 1924, after the October Revolution of 1917, Cathedral Square was renamed into Communal Square. On January 2, 1930 city authorities made decision to rebuild the Cathedral of Christ the Saviour into the House of Culture of the Union of Builders. However, later it became clear that this project is very costly. That's why it was decided to totally demolish cathedral and to build new building of the House of Culture at this place. The demolishing of cathedral was started in June 1930 and continued till 1935. By November 1938, the construction of the House of Culture was finished. In 1935 the Communal Square (as well as whole city of Samara) was renamed in the honour of the Russian revolutionary and prominent Soviet politician Valerian Kuybyshev (1888-1935). On November 5, 1938 there was opened monument of Valerian Kuybyshev (sculptor - Matvey Manizer) at the Kuybyshev Square. In August 2010 the Samara Toponymic Commission adopted a recommendation to rename the Kuibyshev Square into Cathedral Square, but Head of City Administration Dmitry Azarov didn't supported this idea. With total area of 17.4 hectares, Kuybyshev Square is the largest square in Russia, second largest square in Europe after the Parade Square in Warsaw (Poland) and 7th largest square in the world. The 8 of 17.4 hectares of this square are covered with asphalt, and 7 hectares - with flower gardens and greenery. The area of Samara Academic Opera and Ballet Theatre at Kuybyshev Square is 2.4 hectares. There are plans to organize fan-zone at the Kuybyshev Square during 2018 FIFA World Cup.

In post-Soviet times the future Metro station "Ploshchad Kuybysheva" ("Kuybyshev Square") was renamed into "Tetralnaya" ("Theatre"), in the honour of Samara Academic Opera and Ballet Theatre which located nearby (#1 Kuybyshev Square). This theatre was founded in 1931. It was opened on June 1, 1931 with performance of Modest Mussorgsky's opera "Boris Godunov". The ballet troupe of theatre was established in 1933. The building of theatre was built during 1936-1938 in Neoclassical style according to the project of architects Nikolay Katsenelenbogen and Noi Trotsky. Originally it was built for the House of Culture, but later in the central part of this building was placed Opera and Ballet Theatre. In October 1941 the State Academic Bolshoi Theatre of USSR was evacuated to the city of Kuybyshev (now Samara). In 1941-1943, they staged 14 operas and ballets in the Kuybyshev. On March 5, 1942, on the stage of Kuybyshev Opera and Ballet Theatre, the Bolshoi Theatre firstly performed famous Symphony No. 7 (so-called Leningrad Symphony) which was written by great Russian composer Dmitry Shostakovich (1906-1975) and dedicated to the Siege of Leningrad of 1941-1944. In post-war years, in gratitude for the help of local people during WWII, the artists of Bolshoi Theatre regularly visited Kuybyshev with own performances. On February 18, 1982 the Kuybyshev Opera and Ballet Theatre assumed the title of Academic Theatre. During some time, in the left wing of the theatre building at the Kuybyshev Square was located regional library, in the right wing - sport school and art museum. In 2006 began reconstruction of this building, which was finished in 2010.

"Teatralnaya" will be shallow single-vaulted station. The station will be remind theatre stage. The light fixtures will be stylized and will be look like spotlights. There will be placed portraits of the famous Samara actors at the track walls.

"Moskovskaya" ("Moscow") is a future northern terminal station on the Line 2 of the Samara Metro. It will be located near the intersection of the Karl Marx Avenue and Gagarin Street, in the Zheleznodorozhny District.

The station is named after 16.7-km long Moscow Highway near which it will be located. Moscow Highway in Samara is a part of European route E30 (Cork, Ireland - Omsk, Russia) and M5 highway (Moscow - Chelyabinsk). It exists as highway since 1903. At the city plan of 1910, it marked as "road to the settlement of Semeykino" (length - 22.4 km). Previously it was known as the Highway Road and Semeykino Highway. According to the General Plan of City Development of 1940, the Semeykino Highway with its continuation to the Rail Terminal Square (now Komsomol Square) was supposed to be central transport axis of city. However, these plans were postponed due to outbreak of the Great Patriotic War of 1941-1945. Only in 1960s began development of this main city's magistral. In 1967 it was renamed into Moscow Highway. Moscow Highway crosses Samara from west to east and passes through territories of four districts - Oktyabrsky, Promyshlenny, Kirovsky and Krasnoglinsky. On December 27, 2002 there was opened Metro station "Moskovskaya" near the Moscow Highway.

"Moskovskaya" ("Moscow") is the station on the Line 1 of the Samara Metro. It located near the intersection of the Moscow Highway and Gagarin Street, in the Zheleznodorozhny District. According to Soviet plan of 1980, it was supposed to be named "Prospekt Marksa" ("Marx Avenue") in the honour of nearest Karl Marx Avenue. The construction works were started in 1988. The station was opened on December 27, 2002 and became 8th Metro station in Samara.

The architect of the station was Alexey Morgun. "Moskovskaya" is the shallow three-vaulted station of the column type (depth - 16 m). The station's decoration is dedicated to the Russian capital and Moscow Kremlin. Its columns are faced with red granite (colour of Moscow Kremlin). These columns supports white arches that hold elastic curved vault. The light fixtures are installed behind the metal decorations at the vault of station. The track walls are faced with white marble and fringed with black stone at the lower part and golden-yellow marble at the upper part. The floor consists of concrete constructions and paved with red and grey granite arranged in special pattern. There was built one underground vestibule, with three escalators. It's linked with underpass under the Gagarin Street, with two exits at the both sides of street. Originally there were plans to build second underground vestibule with stairway to the platform. However, during construction, there were changed Russian standarts for construction works. According to new norms, there should be installed escalators in the second vestibule instead of planned stairway. As a result, second vestibule was not built. There is situated stairway in the central part of underground platform. This stairway was built for future transfer to planned Line 2. The future station also will be called "Moskovskaya".

The station of the Line 2 will be shallow station of the column type. The detailed project of this station is not ready yet, its construction is not started.

KAZAN | Aeroexpress

Just a quick update on the Aeroexpress in Kazan, for make benefit glorious republic of Tatarstan.

Here on the banks of the Volga River RZD was building its newest airport rail link, the sixth in the nation after the 3 in the capital and one each in Vladivostok and Sochi. The date of beginning of service was continuously pushed back, but it has to open some time within the next two months because of some sort of college sports festival that Kazan is eagerly awaiting and scheduled to begin on 6 July 2013. The President of the Russian Federation is due to make a visit to said college sports championship, and so the Aeroexpress must open before the tournament begins so as to avoid embarrassment.

SSC user sonnyforelly has posted some photos on the russophone section of the site (http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showpo...ostcount=690):






Standard fare is 200 RUB, 400 RUB for business class, 75 RUB kids fare.

Here's the schedule. Trains heading downtown on the left, outbound trains to the airport on the right. Travel time 30 minutes.



Ticket vending machine



The latest unconfirmed rumor is that service will begin 26 May 2013
