I have a question: Should Kaliningrad have a metro? I think one or two lines would be necessary for the city

No, it's just financially infeasible. Tram renovation and reintroduction together with bus lanes could fully fulfil the transportation needs of the city.

RUSSIAN METROS - SUMMARY OF THE YEAR AND FURTHER DEVELOPMENT:

According to the new tradition, I decided to write such report fourth year in a row. I previously made ​​similar reports about the events of 2010, 2011 and 2012. Perhaps it will be interesting for someone to compare my past predictions with real results.

Earlier, I did a forecasts for one year at the beginning of 2011, 2012 and 2013. I should admit that all three times I was wrong. Three years ago, I was sure that Metro station "Chkalovskaya" in Yekaterinburg will open in 2011 (as it was planned by officials). However, its opening was rescheduled on 2012 due to problems with delivering of the parts for escalators. Two years ago, I was skeptical about official plans to open Moscow Metro stations "Alma-Atinskaya" and "Pyatnitskoye Shosse" in 2012. Nevertheless, both stations were opened in late December 2012, few days before New Year.

One year ago, I predicted that there will be opened 9 Russian Metro stations in 2013: 6 in Moscow and 3 in Kazan. In this case, it would be record result for post-Soviet times. According to a centuries-old Russian superstition, the third attempt should be much more successful than two previous ("God loves a Trinity" ). That's why I hoped that my prediction for 2013 will be correct. Those plans were real, but in last moment the opening of four Moscow stations was rescheduled on 2014. As a result, I seriously blundered

Therefore, in 2013 were opened only 5 Russian Metro stations in two cities. This is worst result since 2009.

Number of the Metro stations, which were opened in Russia since 1990:

(Soviet times)
1990 - 4 stations: Moscow (4);
1991 - 12 stations: Moscow (5), St. Petersburg (3), Yekaterinburg (3), Novosibirsk;

(In 1992-1994 were opened Metro stations, which were mostly built in Soviet period)
1992 - 5 stations: Novosibirsk (2), Moscow, Samara, Yekaterinburg;
1993 - 4 stations: Nizhny Novgorod (2), Samara (2);
1994 - 3 stations: Yekaterinburg (2), Moscow;

(Metro stations, which were opened after 1994, were built in post-Soviet times)
1995 - 6 stations: Moscow (6);
1996 - 3 stations: Moscow (3);
1997 - 2 stations: St. Petersburg (2);
1998 - 0 stations;
1999 - 3 stations: St. Petersburg (2), Moscow;
2000 - 2 stations: Moscow, Novosibirsk;
2001 - 1 station: Moscow;
2002 - 4 stations: Moscow, Nizhny Novgorod, Samara, Yekaterinburg;
2003 - 6 stations: Moscow (6);
2004 - 0 stations;
2005 - 8 stations: Kazan (5), Moscow, St. Petersburg, Novosibirsk;
2006 - 2 stations: Moscow, St. Petersburg;
2007 - 3 stations: Moscow (2), Samara;
2008 - 6 stations: Moscow (3), St. Petersburg (2), Kazan;
2009 - 4 stations: Moscow (3), St. Petersburg;
2010 - 5 stations: Moscow (2), St. Petersburg, Kazan, Novosibirsk;
2011 - 5 stations: Moscow (3), St. Petersburg, Yekaterinburg;
2012 - 7 stations: Moscow (3), St. Petersburg (2), Nizhny Novgorod, Yekaterinburg;
2013 - 5 stations: Kazan (3), Moscow (2).

Generally speaking, the future of Russian Metro construction looks even more sad. Three and half years ago, when I started to write posts in this thread, few interesting rapid transport projects were at the stage of realization in few Russian cities not including Moscow - in Novosibirsk, Yekaterinburg, Kazan, St. Petersburg, Nizhny Novgorod, Volgograd, Samara. As a rule, above-mentioned projects were prepared even in Soviet times. The real works for realization of those projects began long time ago (in some cities - 10-25 years ago), but due to various reasons (mainly financial) it took many years to complete that.

During last three years, the long-term construction in said cities finally came to an end (except Samara where construction still ongoing). It's means that new projects should to be started from scratch. However, almost all cities (except Moscow) have no enough money for further development of own rapid transport systems. As a result, Metro construction in few Russian cities de-facto was ceased. In some other cities, new projects are excepted to be realized not earlier than after 3-4 years. This means that in the next decade there will be opened few Metro stations in Moscow, while extensions of the Metro systems in other Russian cities expected only after some years. Nowadays, even construction of Metro tunnels is not going outside Moscow

After three failed attempts, I will try to predict it for fourth time. I guess that in 2014 there will be opened 6 Russian Metro stations - and all those stations will be opened in Moscow. The four of six stations will be opened in coming weeks. However, there exist some little chances for opening few more Metro stations in Moscow and one Metro station - in Samara.

In the next posts I will write about results of 2013 and plans for the near future.

SOUTHEASTERN EXTENSION OF THE LINE 7

This extension was made in order to solve problem with overcrowding of the "Vykhino" station, the former southeastern terminus station of this line. There were plans that as result of the extension, the passenger traffic will be redistributed at the southern radius of the Line 7.

"VYKHINO EFFECT"

"Vykhino" is a station on Moscow Metro's Line 7. It's located near the Khlobystov Street and intersection of Red Kazanets Street and Veshnyaki Street, at the border of the Vykhino-Zhulebino District of the South-Eastern Administrative Okrug and Veshnyaki District of the Eastern Administrative District. Opened on December 31, 1966 as the final part of the Zhdanovsky Radius, the station remained the southeastern terminus of the Line 7 until November 9, 2013, when the southeastern extension to Metro stations "Lermontovsky Prospekt" and "Zhulebino" was opened. 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, this 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. Prior southeastern extension, "Vykhino" was the only Moscow Metro station where was 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 did not boarded 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 took place at Metro station "Ryazansky Prospekt" ("Ryazan Avenue"). 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.

Before opening of two new Metro stations, "Vykhino" was closed on two weekends (August 10-11 and August 25-26, 2013) in order to reconstruct platforms and connect new segment to the Line 7. There were added turnstiles for separation of passenger flow at the platform for trains in direction to new Metro station "Zhulebino". There were plans that passenger ridership at Metro station "Vykhino" will decrease on 40%. However, during November 11-13, 2013, after three days since the opening of two stations, passenger traffic at this Metro station decreased only on 17%.

June 11, 2008. The view from above at the combined transfer node:

"LERMONTOVSKY PROSPEKT"

"Lermontovsky Prospekt" ("Lermontov Avenue") is a station on Moscow Metro's Line 7. It's located between Metro stations "Vykhino" and "Zhulebino" and opened, together with "Zhulebino", on November 9, 2013. The station is constructed below the intersection of Khvalynsk Boulevard and Lermontovsky Avenue, and is located outside of the Moscow Automobile Ring Road beltway, approximately 500 metres from railway station "Kosino", in the Vykhino-Zhulebino District, South-Eastern Administrative Okrug. The construction of Metro stations "Lermontovsky Prospekt" and "Zhulebino" was needed to unload "Vykhino", which by the time of construction was the most heavily used station of Moscow Metro. In the future there is planned to built transfer to Metro station "Kosino" of the future Kozhukhovskaya Line. Also, there are plans to build Transport Terminal at the northern side of Lermontov Avenue.

The territory at which the station currently located was a part of the town of Lyubertsy of Moscow Region. On March 19, 1984 it was transferred to Moscow, and subsequently rapid urban development started. The whole area, along with Lyubertsy and other areas along the Kazansky and Ryazansky suburban directions of Moscow Railway were strongly dependent on Metro station "Vykhino", then the terminus of the Line 7 and a transfer station to both railway directions. In the 2000s, "Vykhino" was heavily overloaded. Eventually, the decision was taken to extend the Line 7 beyond "Vykhino".

In August 2010 was presented project of the southern extension of the Line 7 with two new stations - "Pronskaya" and "Zhulebino". Metro station "Pronskaya" was planned to be built near 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 Lermontov Avenue and Khvalynsk Boulevard. As a result, the planned Metro station "Pronskaya" 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 Avenue leads in direction to estate of Tarkhany in Penza Region where poet spent his childhood and is buried (Tarkhany Street is also located in this district). 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 March 23, 2012 began construction of the 1.59-km long left tunnel from Metro station "Zhulebino" in direction to "Lermontovsky Prospekt" with using of TBM "Olga" ("Lovat RME-242SE 18400") - it was finished on March 27, 2013. On June 21, 2012 there began construction of the 1.78-km long left tunnel from "Lermontovsky Prospekt" in direction to Metro station "Vykhino" with using of TBM "Herrenknecht S-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 EPB-2015-371" for construction of the 1.91-km long right tunnel from "Lermontovsky Prospekt" in direction to "Vykhino". The construction of this tunnel began on December 29, 2012 and finished on May 24, 2013. And, finally, on January 11, 2013 there began construction of the 1.57-km long right tunnel from "Zhulebino" in direction to "Lermontovsky Prospekt" with using of TBM "Herrenknecht S-798" - it was finished on May 28, 2013.

On July 8, 2013, there happened damage of the portion of future tunnels between Metro stations "Vykhino" and "Lermontovsky Prospekt" by quicksands at the site of former Kosino swamps. As a result, the opening of two new Metro stations was rescheduled on two months. The reconstruction works began in late July 2013. It was decided to fully excavate and strengthen concrete tubings with cast-iron rim-supports. The financial losses for construction company amounted 14 million rubles (~ 310 thousand Euros). On September 6, 2013 then-Acting Mayor of Moscow Sergey Sobyanin visited this station with excursion group of little schoolers. The checking of sizes of tunnels at new segment was finished on October 29, 2013, the testing train rode by new segment on October 31, 2013. Finally, the station was opened on November 9, 2013.

The architects of the station are Leonid Borzenkov (project leader), Mikhail Volovich, Sergey Kostikov, Tamara Nagieva, Natalya Soldatova and Vasily Uvarov.

"ZHULEBINO"

"Zhulebino" is a southeastern terminus on Moscow Metro's Line 7. It's located near the General Kuznetsov Street, Tarkhany Street and Aerospace Engineer Mil Street, in the Vykhino-Zhulebino District, South-Eastern Administrative Okrug. Its location is outside the Moscow Automobile Ring Road beltway.

The station named after district in which it is located. The village of Zhulebino was firstly mentioned in 1645, although it's considered that this village appeared in 1499. The village was named after representative of noble family Andrey Osteyev, who had a nickname Zhuleba (i.e. sly man). This village and neighboring territory were included into city boundaries on March 19, 1984. There was built new microdistrict Zhulebino around the former village. On September 12, 1991 was established municipal okrug Zhulebino. On July 5, 1995 was established Vykhino-Zhulebino District which includes territories of the temporary municipal okrugs of Vykhino and Zhulebino.

In the end of 1980s, the construction of the Metro station in Zhulebino microdistrict had been planned by the government of Moscow. This plan was ready in 1990, but it was postponed. Then in 1999 began the development and implementation of the projects of the construction of the Light Metro, and one of the Light Metro lines should be lead into Zhulebino. However, after the opening of the Butovskaya Light Metro Line on December 27, 2003, the designs drawbacks became all the more apparent and the plans for construction of the other Light Metro lines were rejected. City authorities considered three options of Metro construction: to build one, two or three stations in Zhulebino. In 2010 it was decided to come back to the Soviet plan of 1990. In August 2010 was presented project of the southern extension of the Line 7 with two new stations - "Pronskaya" and "Zhulebino". Metro station "Pronskaya" was planned to be built near 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 Lermontov Avenue and Khvalynsk Boulevard. As a result, planned Metro station "Pronskaya" was officially renamed into "Lermontovsky Prospekt" ("Lermontov Avenue"). The project was corrected, and it became possible to construct "Zhulebino" at a straight line, while originally this station intended to build in curve.

The construction lasted for two years. The preparation works were started in May 2011. The construction works were started in the end of September 2011. In January-February 2012 from Krasnoyarsk were delivered parts of TBM "Olga" ("Lovat RME-242SE 18400"). On March 23, 2012 there began construction of the 1.59-km long left tunnel in direction to Metro station "Lermontovsky Prospekt". It was finished on March 27, 2013. On January 11, 2013 there began construction of the 1.57-km long right tunnel in direction to "Lermontovsky Prospekt" with using of TBM "Herrenknecht S-798". It was finished on May 28, 2013.

The architects of the station are Leonid Borzenkov (project leader), Mikhail Volovich, Sergey Kostikov, Tamara Nagieva, Natalya Soldatova and Vasily Uvarov.

The stairs conducts with platform of station in a southern underground vestibule, the northern underground vestibule is equipped with three escalators.
