FUTURE RUSSIAN METRO SYSTEMS - OMSK

Well, it's seem that the next Metro system in Russia will be opened in the Siberian city of Omsk. Currently Omsk is the eighth most populous city in Russia (after Metro cities of Moscow, Saint Petersburg, Novosibirsk, Yekaterinburg, Nizhny Novgorod, Kazan and Samara). The population of Omsk is about 1.160.670 residents (2013). After the opening of Almaty Metro in Kazakhstan on December 1, 2011, Omsk became largest city at the post-Soviet space without Metro system.

The some objects of the future Omsk Metro system are either completed or close to completion. As joking Omsk residents - "We have Metro bridge, but we don't have Metro". Fortunately, they have real chances to ride at own Metro system in the near future. In 2016 there are scheduled large celebrations dedicated to the 300th anniversary of the Omsk's foundation. That's why federal authorities giving money for improving of the city infrastructure by 2016. The part of federal money are using for Omsk Metro construction. There are working famous local construction company "Mostovik" with the modern TBM "Lovat". This company took part in the construction of the Russian Bridge in Vladivostok (world's largest cable-stayed bridge), the Olympic objects in Sochi ("Bolshoy" Ice Dome, Sliding Center "Sanki", etc), Picturesque Bridge and Butovskaya Light Metro Line in Moscow, etc. In the best case (depending from level of federal and regional funding), Omsk Metro will be opened in 2015-2016 to the celebrations dedicated to the 300th anniversary of city foundation, in the worst case it will be opened few years later.

BRIEF HISTORY OF OMSK METRO CONSTRUCTION (1992-2012)

Omsk is a city and the administrative center of Omsk Region, located in southwestern Siberia 2236 kilometres (1389 miles) from Moscow. With a population of 1.160.670, it is Russia's second-largest city east of the Ural Mountains after Novosibirsk, and eighth by size nationally. During the Imperial era, Omsk was the seat of the Governor General of Western Siberia, and later of the Governor General of the Steppes. For a brief period during the Russian Civil War in 1918–1920, it served as the capital of the anti-Bolshevik Russian State and held the Imperial gold reserves. Omsk is the administrative center of the Siberian Cossack Host. It also serves as the see of the bishop of Omsk and Tara, as well as the administrative seat of the Imam of Siberia.

Omsk stretches along the banks of the north-flowing Irtysh River at its confluence with the smaller Om River. The city has an elevation of 87 metres above mean sea level at its highest point. Omsk is an important railroad hub, and is the junction point for the northern and southern branches of the Trans-Siberian Railway. The city also serves as a major hub for the regional highway network. River-port facilities handle both passengers and freight, giving the city access to navigating the extensive waterways of the Irtysh and Ob Rivers. The waterways connect Omsk with the coal and mineral-mining towns further up the river in Kazakhstan, as well as with the oil, natural gas and lumber operations of northern Siberia. Omsk is served by the Central Airport, which offers access to domestic and international (primarily, German and Kazakh) destinations, making the city an important aviation hub for Siberia and the Russian Far East.

Central planners in Moscow first identified Omsk as a metro-eligible city during the 1960s, due to its length along the Irtysh River and its relatively narrow streets. But in 1970, after the plan was approved and financed, the planners decided to build an express tram instead, and the money allocated to Omsk was given to Chelyabinsk. In 1979, a "Gosplan" ("State Committee for Planning") commission rejected a plan to build an express tram system since it was predicted to be unable to handle projected passenger flows without severely discomforting riders. In 1986, Metro plans were revisited and financing began, along with the demolition of residential buildings at the Workers' Street to make way for tracks and a depot. In 1980s, Omsk planned a typical Russian three-line Metro network plus a fourth branch line.

The construction was started in 1992 between planned Metro stations "Tupolevskaya" ("Andrey Tupolev") and Rabochaya ("Workers'"). The initial plans involved opening of the section between Metro stations "Marshala Zhukova" ("Marshal Zhukov") and "Rabochaya" on the right bank of the Irtysh River to connect downtown to the industrial district, and then later to connect the line to the opposite bank of the Irtysh. Due to poor financial circumstances, by 2003 just Metro section between "Tupolevskaya" and "Rabochaya" was completed (with no intermediate stations). In 2003, there were two construction sites in Omsk. First is Metro tunnel had being constructed with Soviet TBM KT-5.6 between Metro stations "Tupolevskaya" and "Rabochaya". The TBM finished the tunnel (0.74-km long, depth - 10 m) on October 23, 2003. The second tunnel was not been built.

In 1996-1997 the plans changed. The root of this change is not the layout but the Soviet priorities on stage projecting. Over the past decade, the new Russian population's social structure greatly changed. Many chose to abandon the factories and, particularly the younger generation, in favour of a career in commerce. For Omsk this had a great effect on the daily transport pattern, where the city centre became a nexus for the region's business. For this reasons, city authorities decided to connect the two banks of the Irtysh River with a Metro bridge, going between one station on the right bank and three on the left bank. The combined Metro (lower level) and motor-vehicle (upper level) bridge was opened to vehicular traffic on October 18, 2005.

However, situation with funding worsened again in 2006, when "Sibneft" ("Siberian Oil") company decided to re-register in the Saint Petersburg. "Sibneft" (now "Gazprom Neft") is the fifth largest oil producing and refining company in Russia. They paid big taxes into regional budget of Omsk Region, so its removing led to deterioration of the financial opportunities of regional authorities. On May 27, 2008, due to the breakthrough of water, there happened flooding of the one of future tunnels, in which was located tunnel boring machine (TBM). It took few weeks for complete elimination of the consequences.

ACTUAL PROJECT

In 2009, as a result of the global financial crisis, the federal goverment decided to greatly decrease funding of the Metro construction in Russia. Thus, the funding of the Omsk Metro construction has been reduced dramatically. As a result, in 2009-2010 construction works greatly slowed. To improve the situation, regional officials began looking for ways to increase funding of the Metro construction. As a result, they presented the project of the so-called "innovative Metro". These technologies were not used previously for construction of Russian Metro systems.

The main features of this project:
1) The construction of shallow stations during first stage as well as ground-level and over-ground stations during next stages;
2) The construction of underground stations with only one vestibule instead of two ones;
3) The construction of underground stations with shortened platform (about 60 metres) instead of stations with platform with length of 100-104 metres (like at majority of regional Metro stations);
4) The construction of the automated lines and using of trains with automatic control (without driver);
5) The decreasing of sizes of the future Metro depot due to using of the trains of smaller length for 60-metres long platforms;
6) The refusal from construction of objects of civil defence (such as hermetic doors);
7) The refusal from construction of the building of the Engineers Corps;
8) The reducing of number of necessary staff.

The main advantages of this project:
1) The reducing of total cost of Metro construction (that is actual in current situation with funding). According to official estimates, total cost will be decreased from 26 billion rubles (~ 860 mln. USD) to 16 billion rubles;
2) The ability to attract funds from the federal budget for implementation of "innovative project";
3) The reducing of terms of construction works.

The main disadvantages of this project:
1) The using of Metro stations with shortened platform can lead to the overcrowding (in conditions of increasing of passenger traffic after further extension);
2) The construction of ground-level and over-ground stations as well as open-air segments can lead to difficulties with exploitation in the conditions of Siberian climate;
3) The construction of underground stations with only one vestibule instead of two ones will lead to reducing of security level (for example, level of fire security) due to lack of additional exits. For this reasons, "Rostekhnadzor" (Federal Service for Ecological, Technological and Nuclear Supervision) can to prohibit the construction according to this project.

For now, the official permission for construction according to this project was not given yet.

The first stage of Omsk Metro construction involves five stations:
1) "Biblioteka imeni Pushkina" ("Pushkin Library");
2) "Zarechnaya" ("Beyond the River");
3) "Kristall" ("Crystal");
4) "Sobornaya" ("Cathedral");
5) "Rokossovskogo" ("Konstantin Rokossovsky").

This section is about 7.5 km in length. The average speed is expected to be 36 km/h and travel time along the entire route is expected to be 10 minutes 12 seconds. The four of five stations will be shallow. In addition, there are plans to build over-ground station "Rokossovskogo" ("Konstantin Rokossovsky") beyond Metro station "Sobornaya".

All four shallow underground stations will be built in one style, similar to Moscow Metro station "Strogino" (opened on January 7, 2008). It will be single-vaulted stations with only differences in color and form of vault. The niches for the fixtures in the vault of the station "Biblioteka imeni Pushkina" ("Pushkin Library") are built in the form of the building of Pushkin Library in Omsk, at the station "Zarechnaya" ("Beyond the River") it will be built in the form of sails, at the station "Kristall" ("Crystal") - in the form of crystals, at the station "Sobornaya" ("Cathedral") - in the form of cathedral domes.

Currently they done such works for the future Metro:
1) They built underground station "Biblioteka imeni Pushkina" with platform hall, underground vestibule and four entrances;
2) They built Metro bridge across Irtysh River;
3) They built 2.1-km long tunnels between future Metro stations "Biblioteka imeni Pushkina" and "Zarechnaya", including segment on the Metro bridge;
4) They built 1.56-km long tunnels between future Metro stations "Zarechnaya" and "Kristall".

For the opening of Omsk Metro, it's need to make following major works:
1) The construction of 1.25-km long tunnels between Metro stations "Kristall" and "Sobornaya";
2) The construction of 0.39-km long branch line from "Sobornaya" station to Metro depot;
3) The construction of Metro depot and traction substations;
4) The construction of Metro stations "Zarechnaya", "Kristall", "Sobornaya" and "Rokossovskogo".

They have many variants with purchase of the trains for automated lines. The most likely candidate for this is "Hyundai", who is main manufacturer of the trains for newly-opened Almaty Metro in Kazakhstan (Omsk Region borders with Kazakhstan in the south). Since January 25 till January 27, 2011 "Hyundai" representatives took part in negotiations with Omsk officials. Among the other candidates are Czech companies, "Ansaldo-Breda" (Italy), "Siemens" (Germany), "Alstom" (France) and "Bombardier" (Canada).

"BIBLIOTEKA IMENI PUSHKINA"

"Biblioteka imeni Pushkina" ("Pushkin Library") is a future eastern terminal station on the Line 1 of the Omsk Metro. It will be located near the intersection of the Red Way Street and Frunze Street, in the Tsentralny Administrative District. "Biblioteka imeni Pushkina" is the only Metro station that will be built on the right bank of the Irtysh River during the first stage of Omsk Metro construction. There are located many residential, administrative, cultural and educational buildings near this station.

The station is named after the Omsk State Regional Research Library named after Alexander Pushkin or simply Pushkin Library (#11 Red Way Street) near which it will be located. Prior September 2005, this station had project names "Ulitsa Frunze" ("Frunze Street") and "Krasny Put" ("Red Way") due to its location the intersection of the Frunze Street and Red Way Street. Pushkin Library is the oldest public library in Omsk and is currently the main research library in the region. In 1899 the Omsk City Council made a decision to open a municipal public library in honor of the centenary of birth of the greatest Russian writer Alexander Pushkin (1799-1837). The library was opened on February 3, 1907. It was located in the extension to the building of City Council that was constructed according to the special project of architect Georgy Bartkovsky. Two adjoining rooms were set aside for the reading hall and the premises where the books could be rented. The library numbered 4160 books and magazines, 370 readers in the first year of serving the Omsk residents.

In 1920 they opened a room for studies and a museum with following departments: bibliography of Russian, foreign literature and modern editions, children’s department with a club and a bindery. During the time of nationalization within 2-3 years the library archive fund expanded to 300 thousand items, which made the Omsk library to be one of the biggest book depositories in Siberia. From 1922 to 1924 the library was located in the building of Central Post Office (former store of tradeswoman Shanina, currently it's a trade house "Lyubinsky"). However in 1924 the library moved to its original place – at that time it occupied almost the whole building of the former City Council.

In 1930s Omsk became a regional centre and the library achieved the status of being regional. Since 1940 the library started to get compulsory copies of all books published in the country. During the Great Patriotic War of 1941-1945 all the activity of the Pushkin Library was subordinated to the war time needs. The employees had to answer the inquiries of specialists from industrial enterprises, theatres and organizations that were evacuated to Omsk from the European part of the country, they also patronized hospitals. In 1960 the departments of technical, agricultural and musical literature were opened; the information service for culture and art was created. The general fund exceeded one million items in 1967. In 1970s by the amount of work the Omsk Regional Research Library named after Alexander Pushkin got into the best ten out of seventy three analogues libraries in the country. On April 28, 1995 the library moved to a new building at the Red Way Street. The architectural and sculptural design of the library's new building (eight sculptures and the surface of the side facade) was created by Vasily Trokhimchuk (1949-1998). The library achieved the status of the "Central State Library of the Omsk Region".

Vasily Trokhimchuk began to work on the architectural and sculptural design of the new building in 1982. Eight sculptures with the height of 3.5 metres made of hammered blued copper are installed in the niches along the principal front. Those are the statues of the outstanding figures of Russia that personify a thousand-year history of the nation: the founder of Russian statehood Yaroslav the Wise (c. 978–1054), the leader spiritual renewal of Russia Sergius of Radonezh (1314-1392), the symbol of Old Russian art Andrey Rublev (1360s-1428); outstanding representatives of Russian science, art, technological advances – great Russian polymath, scientist and writer Mikhail Lomonosov (1711-1765), great Russian writer and historian Nikolay Karamzin (1766-1826), the father of Russian classical music Mikhail Glinka (1804-1857), Russian rocket scientist Konstantin Tsiolkovsky (1857-1935). The image of Alexander Pushkin (1799-1837), whose name the library bears, has become the central figure of this sculptural pantheon. The statues of Alexander Pushkin and Andrey Rublev were created by the project author Vasily Trokhimchuk. Leningrad sculptors Mikhail Yershov, Leonid Kolibaba and Vladimir Yeryomin made the other six. The statues were cast in mould in Leningrad at the art-production factory named after Maurice Thorez. Their production was conducted by the cutting out sheet copper on the solid plaster model. The blessing and the installment of the sculptures on the pediment of the building took place in spring of 1993.

The side facade of the library building is decorated with the relief. It doesn’t depict real historical events; it looks more like a philosophical account of mankind's history. The centre of the composition is the image of the Earth Mother. At the right and at the left the figures of Icarus and Atlas stand out for their size. These figures are made in the largest scale which emphasizes the special place these mythological heroes take in the human history. Proportions of the rest figures (for about a hundred) depend on the importance of this or that character. The relief (its length is 30 metres) was made of clay (the Leningrad sculptor Vladimir Yeryomin has taken part in the modeling). The knock down relief (11 parts) was delivered to Omsk by the railway and later it was installed at the site under the direction of the author.

On June 22, 2006 was finished construction of the right tunnels between these stations. The distance between these stations is 2100 metres. In 2007 there began construction of the foundation pit. By 2009 the construction of the underground part of Metro station "Biblioteka imeni Pushkina" was almost finished. In March 2011 there began construction of the underpass, where will be located entrance to the underground vestibule of this station. This underpass with four exits was opened on September 2, 2011.

METRO BRIDGE NAMED AFTER 60TH ANNIVERSARY OF VICTORY

Omsk Metro Bridge named after 60th anniversary of Victory is the combined girder two-level bridge across the Irtysh River in Omsk. The road part of bridge connects the Frunze Street at the right bank of the Irtysh River and Konev Street at the left bank. The Metro part of bridge will connect stations "Biblioteka imeni Pushkina" and "Zarechnaya" after its opening.

On May 16, 1978 there were started geodetic works for construction of this bridge. In 1979-1988 was prepared feasibility study for this construction. On August 24, 1992 was signed contract for construction of this bridge. The preparation works began in September 1992. The construction works were started on February 24, 1993. However, till the end of 2000 it was very slow due to problems with funding. The works were accelerated in 2001, after substantial funds from regional budget were involved. In September 2004, according to the Order of the Governor of Omsk Region Leonid Polezhayev, Metro bridge was named after 60th anniversary of Victory. The combined Metro (lower level) and motor-vehicle (upper level) bridge was opened to vehicular traffic on October 18, 2005.

The length of Omsk Metro bridge is 650 metres, its total length - about 5 km with road interchanges. The width of bridge is 32 metres, there are 6 lanes for road traffic (three in each direction).
