NOVOSIBIRSK METRO

2012 - THE MOST SIGNIFICANT EVENTS:

In 2012 there was opened second vestibule with four exits from the station "Zolotaya Niva". This Metro station was opened on October 7, 2010.

"Zolotaya Niva" ("Golden Field") is the eastern terminal station on the Dzerzhinskaya Line 2 of the Novosibirsk Metro. It's located near the intersections of the Koshurnikov Street with Fedoseyev Street and Boris Bogatkov Street, at the border of the Dzerzhinsky and Oktyabrsky Districts. This Metro station is located near residential areas of Gusinobrodsky and Vostochny. "Zolotaya Niva" is the most eastern Metro station in Russia.

The station is named after residential area in which it located. During Soviet times there was large bakery shop at this area (#248 Boris Bogatkov Street). Near this bakery shop, there was stop of public transport (bus, trolleybus and tram) named «Magazin "Zolotaya Niva"» («"Golden Field" Shop»). In 1990s, after Soviet collapse, bakery shop ceased to exist, but the name of stop didn't changed. Originally Metro station that was planned in this area since 1980s had project name "Gusinobrodskaya", but on September 16, 2004 this station was officially renamed into "Zolotaya Niva". Currently there is also residential area with same name on the border of Dzerzhinsky and Oktyabrsky Districts. Also, there were proposals to name this station "Borisa Bogatkova" in the honour of Siberian poet Boris Bogatkov (1922-1943) who took part in the construction of Moscow Metro in 1940-1941, volunteered for the front during WWII and was killed in the Smolensk Region on August 11, 1943.

The construction of this station had been planned by Soviet authorities in 1980s. In 1991 there was started construction of the 4.1-km long Metro segment "Sibirskaya" - "Zolotaya Niva" (Line 2) with three new stations, but it was stopped due to lack of funding in mid-1990s. On December 28, 2000 there was opened Metro station "Marshala Pokryshkina" ("Marshal Pokryshkin"); on June 25, 2005 - "Beryozovaya Roshcha" ("Birch Grove"). The construction works at Metro station "Zolotaya Niva" were resumed in May 2007, after the opening of the neighboring station "Beryozovaya Roshcha". The distance between these stations is 1.54 km.

According to original project of 1990, "Zolotaya Niva" was supposed to be built with two side platforms. In 2007, in order to reduce cost of construction, it was proposed to build this station with automated doors like at the stations of so-called "horizontal lift" type in the Saint Petersburg Metro. But in 2009 was chosen current type - shallow two-vaulted station of the column type.

The preparation works at the construction site were started in 1991-1992 when there were dismantled tramlines at the Koshurnikov Street. The construction works were started in 1993. There was prepared construction site at the floodplain of Kamenka River, approximately at the midway between future Metro stations "Beryozovaya Roshcha" and "Zolotaya Niva". The construction of the 0.442-km long part of the right tunnel from this floodplain in direction to Metro station "Beryozovaya Roshcha" was started in 1994, but it was stopped in 1998 due to lack of funding. There were dug only 44 metres of right tunnel and 7 metres - left. On November 7, 2007 was finished construction of the 0.442-km part of right tunnel with obsolete Soviet TBM KM-43 which was constructed in 1960s. The works were difficult because the level of groundwaters in the area of the floodplain of Kamenka River increased on 2.5 metres in 2004-2007. In 2007 was declared tender for construction of tunnels, which was won by "Bamtonnelstroy" construction company, the headquarters of which is located in the Siberian city of Krasnoyarsk. They planned to finish construction of the remaining part of the right tunnel with modern TBM "Lovat". But in October 2007, due to delays in payment for the work, "Bamtonnelstroy" decided to stop works in Novosibirsk and pick up TBM "Lovat" for the construction of the combined auto-and-railway road in Sochi. Then Mayority of Novosibirsk decided to continue construction with new local prime contractor and obsolete Soviet TBMs without using of means for mechanization of works. In February 2008 there were started pile-drilling works at the construction site of Metro station. On March 1, 2008 there was started construction of the remaining part of the right tunnel (0.482-km long) from floodplain of Kamenka River in direction to Metro station "Zolotaya Niva" with using of old Soviet TBM KM-43. In May 2008 there was resumed construction of the 0.444-km long part of the left tunnel from floodplain in direction to Metro station "Beryozovaya Roshcha" with using of old Soviet TBM ShchN-1S - it was finished on January 14, 2009. About 150 last metres of right tunnel were built with using of cut-and-cover method due to high level of the groundwaters. The construction of this tunnel was finished on June 12, 2010.

Metro station "Zolotaya Niva" was scheduled to be opened on June 27, 2010, to the 117th anniversary of the foundation of Novosibirsk. However the opening was rescheduled on October 7, 2010. According to the plans, station was opened with the one tunnel and one vestibule with two exits. But later it was discovered that the inspectors of the "Rostekhnadzor" (Federal Service for Ecological, Technological and Nuclear Supervision) gave permission only to the operation of the power system of the station, but not for its opening for passengers. Inspectors went to the court, and on October 25 the judge decided to stop work of station for 30 days to correct deficiencies. However, the station remained closed till February 2011.

On November 29, it was announced that happened strain of the tunnel in an area with high level of groundwaters. The using of obsolete Soviet TBMs impacted on the quality of works.On next day Mayor of Novosibirsk Vladimir Gorodetsky accepted the resignation of Nikolay Hvan (the chief of construction company), and on December 5 Hvan officially ceased its powers. This scandal story led to the great dissatisfaction among local residents and few non-numerous demonstrations near the station. It was announced that at the 200-m tunnel segment was discovered the deformation of the tunnel rings. In January 2011 it was announced that these damage is not so critical, and the problems basically have judical character. In February 2011 "Rostekhnadzor" gave permission for reopening of station. As a result, on February 9, 2011 the station was reopened for passengers.

"Zolotaya Niva" is the shallow two-vaulted station of the column type. There are 26 cylindrical columns along the central axis of station (column space - 4 metres). The main facing material for the station is aluminum. The floor of station and lower parts of the columns are faced with granite. The column orders are made of metalic panels of yellow and brown colors. The columns are decorated with metalic inserts that symbolize the ears of plants. The vault of the station is faced with aluminum siding of silvery-white color.

Originally the station was opened with one (western) vestibule №2 and two exits: №5 - near the Adrien Lejeune Street and №6 - near the Fedoseyev Street. In 2011-2012 was continued construction of the eastern vestibule №1 with four exits at the all sides of the intersection of the Koshurnikov Street and Boris Bogatkov Street - it located in 125 metres of western vestibule. On April 7, 2012 there was opened eastern vestibule with two exits - №2 (in the building of trade store "Golden Field") and №4 (near #221 Boris Bogatkov Street). This vestibule is linked with platform with three escalators. On December 21, 2012 there were opened two remained exits - №1 (near #239 Boris Bogatkov Street) and №3 (near #248/1 Boris Bogatkov Street).

The main problem of station is waterproofing - these problems are visible for passengers. In near future, city authorities have plans to complete construction of the remaining 0.528-km long part of the left tunnel with using of modern TBM "Lovat" during further extension of the Line 2.

2012 - RECONSTRUCTIONS, RESTORATIONS AND RENOVATIONS:

In October 2011 there was started renovation of the vestibule of Metro station "Rechnoy Vokzal" ("River Terminal"; Line 1; opened on January 7, 1986). It was finished in January 2012.

"Rechnoy Vokzal" ("River Terminal") is the station on the Leninskaya Line 1 of the Novosibirsk Metro. It's located near the Voskhod Street, between the Bolshevik Street and Zyryanovskaya Street, in the Oktyabrsky District. There are Novosibirsk Metro bridge (built in 1980-1985) and Communal auto bridge (built in 1952-1955) near this station.

Metro station "Rechnoy Vokzal" was opened as part of the first Metro line on January 7, 1986. It's named due to location near the Novosibirsk River Terminal. The building of River Terminal was erected according to the project of architects A. Volovik, Yu. Zakharov and M. Pirogov. Its construction was started in 1960s. River Terminal was opened in April 1974. Unfortunately, on March 7, 2003 (as result of celebrations dedicated to the coming International Women's Day), its building seriously suffered from fire and not restored yet.

The architects of station were V. Sokolov and V. Pitersky. "Rechnoy Vokzal" was built at the slope at the floodplain of Ob River. That's why its design is very unusual for Russian Metro stations. "Rechnoy Vokzal" is an indoor three-vaulted station. It's only Novosibirsk Metro station with side platforms. There is one row of 16 columns (column space - 4.5 m) at the each of both platforms. The western part of this station is ground-level (with vestibule at one level and platform at second level) and eastern part is underground. "Rechnoy Vokzal" is directly connected with indoor Novosibirsk Metro bridge - the first span of bridge is supported by constructions of this station. The decoration of station is dedicated to the Ob River. Its walls and columns are faced with gray-blue marble, the floor is paved with granite, the ceiling is faced with aliminium profile. There are located 10 colored stained-glasses at the walls of station with stylized images of the Siberian cities that situated on the banks of the Ob River and its tributaries - Barnaul, Biysk, Mangazeya, Novokuznetsk, Novosibirsk, Omsk, Surgut, Tobolsk, Tomsk and Tyumen.

The station has two ground-level vestibules that are connected with side platforms with eight escalators and four stairways. The eastern vestibule is located above the side platforms, with two exits near the railway station "River Terminal". The western vestibule is located lower than side platforms, with two exits near the Bolshevik Street and bus stops. Originally the walls of both vestibules were faced with marble from outside: the walls of upper (eastern) vestibule - with brown marble, the walls of lower (western) vestibule - with white marble. In mid-1990s the white marble at the walls of the western vestibule was replaced with decorative material "bayramix". In October 2011 was started renovation of the western vestibule, as result of which "bayramix" was replaced with gray composite panels. The works for renovation were finished in January 2012.
