"Park Pobedy" ("Victory Park") is actually a cross-platform complex with two separate, parallel platforms, though only the inner pair of tracks is presently used. When the construction was begun in 1990, plans called for this to be a transfer to the future Solntsevo-Mytischenskaya and the Mitino-Butovskaya chordial lines. The former were to use the two halls as a transfer to the Line 3 whilst the latter would have a third perpendicular station. However the 1990s financial crises ended the chordial projects and instead the Strogino-Mitino extension passed via "Park Pobedy" when opened in 2003 (2009). The second set of tracks will be used by the Solntsevsky Radius after that has been completed.

At 73.6 metres underground, "Park Pobedy" is the most deepest station in Moscow and one of deepest in the world by mean depth, after Kiev Metro's "Arsenalna" (105.5 metres; opened on November 6, 1960) and Saint Petersburg Metro's "Admiralteyskaya" (86 metres; opened on December 28, 2011) and "Komendantsky Prospekt" (75 metres; opened on April 2, 2005). It also contains the longest escalators in Europe, each one is 126.8 metres long and has 740 steps (height - 63.4 m). The escalator ride to the surface takes approximately three minutes.

The two platforms work of architects Nikolay Shumakov and Natalya Shurygina are of identical design but have opposite colour schemes, which creates a striking effect. One hall has white pylons and brown track walls, and the other vice-versa. The station is adorned with two large enameled panels by Zurab Tsereteli depicting the Patriotic War of 1812 (at the eastern end of the southern hall) and the Great Patriotic War of 1941-1945 (at the western end of the northern hall). The floor of the southern hall is paved with grey and black granite, the floor of the northern hall - with grey and brown granite.

This is the only Moscow Metro station where all passengers board and exit trains in different locations. A further complication: only the southern (outbound) platform has an entrance vestibule (architects - Alexander Orlov and Alexander Nekrasov with participation of Viktoriya Sychyova), so passengers arriving at the inbound platform must change platforms before exiting. The two halls are connected by a small bridge in the centre. The eastern end of the northern hall is faced with grey and black marble. There are plans to build exit directly from the northern hall.

The preparation works for construction of the second vestibule of the station began in December 2011. The preparation works for construction of two tunnels from Metro station "Delovoy Tsentr" in direction to "Park Pobedy" were started in January 2012. In July 2012 there began construction of the foundation pit for construction of the second vestibule. In December 2012 there was started fencing of non-used side platform at Metro station "Park Pobedy" for future serving of trains in direction to city center. The construction of the 1.89-km long left tunnel between Metro stations "Delovoy Tsentr" and "Park Pobedy" began in the end of December 2012 with using of TBM "Sofiya" ("Robbins") - it was finished on October 31, 2013. In February 2013 there was started fencing of non-used side platform at Metro station "Park Pobedy" for future serving of trains in direction from city center. On December 26, 2013 Mayor of Moscow Sergey Sobyanin visited this station. The station is planned to be opened as part of Solntsevsky Radius in January 2014. Within about two years, there will be operate shuttle trains at this segment. Within few months after opening, shuttle three-car "Rusich" trains will be operate only in the left tunnel between Metro stations "Delovoy Tsentr" and "Park Pobedy".

On April 24, 2013 there began construction of the right tunnel with using of TBM "Viktoriya" ("Robbins") - it planned to be finished in mid-February 2014. The operation of shuttle three-car "Rusich" trains in right tunnel is planned to be launched in the second half of 2014. After planned southeastern extension of the Solntsevsky Radius in the end of 2015, shuttle traffic will be cancelled and there will be operate five-car "Rusich" trains in both tunnels.

NORTHWESTERN EXTENSION OF THE BUTOVSKAYA LINE

In 2014 the Butovskaya Line is planned to be extended on 4.42 km northwest with two new stations - "Lesoparkovaya" ("Urban Forest") and "Bitsevsky Park" ("Bitsa Park"). This extension should to link southern radii of the Line 6 and Line 9 via Butovskaya Line. It should to solve problem with overcrowding at the transfer from the Butovskaya Line to the Line 9 as well as with overloading of the southern radius of the Line 9. It's planned that as a result of the extension, the passengers from the Northern Butovo and Southern Butovo Districts will be redistributed by the both lines. This segment is being built by "Kazmetrostroy" construction company from Kazan.



Butovskaya Line is a line of the Moscow Metro. Its total length is 5.533 km. The line symbolizes an experiment of building rapid-transit in areas where tunnel boring is considered expensive and impractical. In the past, attempts were made to build lines on ground level, however as the Line 4 showed, harsh Russian winters and the occupation of the large amount of useful land, make such projects a failure. However, new districts on the very edge of the city, particularly those outside Moscow Automobile Ring Road beltway (MKAD) required a rapid-transit connection. As the practicality of tunnel boring is unclear, the system was planned to be above ground since the late 1980s, when Moscow Metro design bureau, "Metrogiprotrans", developed a set of projects that would bring rapid-transit beyond MKAD, with the Southern Butovo District being the first one.

The term "Light Metro" was applied to these new projects, as it would feature an elevated track on a continuous flyover. Specific rolling stock had to be developed to serve the track, as it would have to be resistant to the open climate elements and sharper bends. For ease of operation, the Light Metro was integrated into the classical Metro service.

The Butovskaya Line essentially continues the southern radius of the Line 9. The 5.533-km long line was opened on December 27, 2003. For convenience, the first 1.8 kilometres were bored in a tunnel, which allowed for a convenient transfer connection at the "Bulvar Dmitriya Donskogo" ("Dmitry Donskoy Boulevard") terminus. For the rest of its length it is elevated, with both single and double tracks protected by a sound barrier. Currently four elevated stations, each of identical design, are in operation. For the first time in Moscow Metro, at the all stations of this line except "Ulitsa Starokachalovskaya" ("Old Kachalovo Street") were installed lifts for wheelchair users only. The line interchanges with the Line 9 at Metro station "Ulitsa Starokachalovskaya".

The line shares the Metro depot "Varshavskoye" (№ 8) with the Line 9. Specially built class 81-740/741 ("Rusich") trains serve this line. These were designed for outdoor operation. A total of 12 three-car trains are currently assigned.

Although the Light Metro was indeed innovative, it also received its share of criticism from different social groups and the media, which could well affect its future.

The main problems arose from finances, as the design was originally planned to be cost-saving; however, the Butovskaya Line turned out to be more expensive than conventional Metro lines. Passenger discomfort arose from shorter trains and larger intervals, but in particular from the transfer at "Ulitsa Starokachalovskaya" / "Bulvar Dmitriya Donskogo", where the Light Metro station consists of two separated platforms on either side of the main line with no reversal sidings behind it. As a result passengers must queue for lengthier times at a platform and also deal with exiting traffic before boarding their train. Additional problems arose from the landscape damage done by the flyover bridge.

Furthermore, costly and embarrassing improvements had to be made just a few months after opening. First, improvements had to be made to the faulty new trains, as they required immediate and unforeseen refits; in addition, despite the sound barriers, further noise reduction works had to be carried out on the tracks themselves by repairing their joints. Despite the shortcomings, one positive aspect of the Butovskaya Line is that the 81-740/741 trains, serial production of the rolling stock, have gained wider usage and are now dominant on the Line 3, the Line 4 and Ring Line 5.

The problems with the Butovskaya Line have also affected the prospect of other Light Metro lines in general as the second planned line, the Solntsevskaya Light Metro Line, has now been canceled. Its construction was planned to begin in 2004, with the line expected to open in 2006, but after repeated postponements, Moscow Metro decided that it would be more practical to revert to an older project — a conventional, Solntsevskaya Line. After the Solntsevskaya Line's cancellation, there have been concerns that Butovskaya Line's fate could be much worse, as there are arguments that it would be more practical to disassemble the line and replace it with two-three station extension of the Line 9.

Despite the criticism, the Moscow Metro continues to put forward several expansion programs for the Butovskaya Line, the first one of which is to place proper reversal sidings north of the station thus separating the terminus platforms into northbound and southbound roles. After the completion of that there was initially a planned northwestwards underground extension towards the terminus of the Line 6, "Novoyasenevskaya" scheduled for 2014.

"LESOPARKOVAYA"

"Lesoparkovaya" ("Urban Forest") is a future station of the Butovskaya Line of the Moscow Metro. It's located near 35th km of the Moscow Automobile Ring Road parallel to beltway, near its intersections with Polyana Street and Kulikovo Street, in the Southern Chertanovo District, Southern Administrative Okrug.

The station is named for the nearby Bitsa Park. This is the second largest natural parks (forests) in Moscow (after "Moose Island" National Park). The park, traversed by the Chertanovka River and the Bitsa River, sprawls for some 10 km from north to south and covers the area of 22.1 square kilometres. The park is elongated from the north to the south and is bounded by Balaklava Avenue from the north. The park is home to more than 500 species of plants, including lindens, oaks, and fine firs, planted by Mikhail Katkov's son at his family manor in the 19th century. 33 species of mammals and 78 species of birds have been registered in the park. The grounds of the park contain the Museum of Paleontology, as well as the 18th-century country estates of Uzkoye and Znamenskoye-Sadki and the reconstructed estate of Yasenevo. They skirt the "Bitsa" horse-riding complex which was built for the 1980 Olympic Games. The forest was the site where serial killer Alexander Pichushkin (b. 1974) committed 59 of his 60 murders.

Nowadays there are no any living massives or public buildings near Metro station "Lesoparkovaya". This station was built for the perspective development of the territory and for safety of passengers (instead of emergency exit - according to current Russian norms, there would be necessary to build emergency exit in the case of refusing from construction of Metro station "Lesoparkovaya"). By 2015, there are plans to built large transport terminal "Lesoparkovy" with car parking near this Metro station.

The preparation works near Metro station "Ulitsa Starokachalovskaya" were started in September 2011. In October 2011 there began removing of garages from the territory of construction of Metro station "Lesoparkovaya" station - it was finished in February 2012. The construction works were started in February 2012. On April 17, 2012 there began construction of the 1.14-km long left tunnel from Metro station "Ulitsa Starokachalovskaya" in direction to "Lesoparkovaya" with using of TBM "Olga" ("Lovat RME234SE"). It was finished on November 15, 2012. On June 11, 2012 there began construction of the 1.23-km right tunnel between these stations with using of TBM "Polina" ("Lovat"). This TBM broke in late February 2013 at the distance 50-70 metres before the finish. Due to this delay, the construction of this tunnel was finished only by May 8, 2013. On August 3, 2012 there began construction of the 2.2-km long left tunnel from "Lesoparkovaya" in direction to Metro station "Bitsevsky Park" with using of TBM "Aysılu" ("Wirth-NFM"); on August 16, 2012 - the 2.29-km long right tunnel between these stations with using of TBM "Laysan" ("Hitachi"). The construction of the left tunnel was finished on May 2, 2013; the construction of the right tunnel - on June 4, 2013. On December 27, 2013 Mayor of Moscow Sergey Sobyanin visited this station, all facing works were mainly completed before New Year. The station is planned to be opened in January-February 2014.

The architects of the station are Vladimir Filippov and Svetlana Petrosyan. "Lesoparkovaya" is a shallow single-vaulted station (depth - 9.5 m). There are paired niches for light fixtures in the three-section vault. The bases of track walls are lined with polished granite, while the floor is paved with grey granite of different shades. Passenger information can be seen above the benches for passengers. As the station of Light Metro, "Lesoparkovaya" was built with less longer platform (92 metres) than vast majority of Moscow Metro stations (155-162 metres). In 2011 were plans to install platform screen doors (height - 2.3 m) at Metro station "Lesoparkovaya", for first time in Moscow Metro. But later it was decided to refuse from this idea. The station will have two underground vestibules. The southern vestibule with two exits will be opened together with station, the northern vestibule with one exit will be opened later, after completition of the transport terminal "Lesoparkovy" with car parking near the station. The stairs conducts with platform of station in a northern and southern underground vestibules. There will be install elevator for people with reduced mobility at the southern vestibule. All exits to a surface will be covered with a glass constructions.

"BITSEVSKY PARK"

"Bitsevsky Park" is a future northwestern terminus station of the Butovskaya Line of the Moscow Metro. It's located near Novoyasenevsky Avenue in the Yasenevo District, South-Western Administrative Okrug. This station will have transfer to Metro station "Novoyasenevskaya" of the Line 6 (opened on January 17, 1990). As a result, it will help to solve many transport problems. Currently the Butovskaya Line have only one transfer - to the southern terminus station of the Line 9. As a result, the southern radius of the Line 9 is very overcrowded as it serves the passengers from the Northern Butovo and Southern Butovo Districts. In contrast, passenger traffic at the southern radius of the Line 6 is relatively low. New transfer will let passengers from the Northern Butovo and Southern Butovo Districts to use the Line 6 as alternative variant for the trips to the city center. Also, it will improve transport communication between the Chertanovo and Yasenevo Districts - it will be not necessary to use the Ring Line for the transfer from the Line 9 to Line 6 and vice versa.

The station is named for the nearby Bitsa Park. This is the second largest natural parks (forests) in Moscow (after "Moose Island" National Park). The park, traversed by the Chertanovka River and the Bitsa River, sprawls for some 10 km from north to south and covers the area of 22.1 square kilometres.

On January 17, 1990 there was opened Metro station "Novoyasenevskaya" - the southwestern terminus of the Line 6, which called "Bitsevsky Park" ("Bitsa Park") before June 1, 2009. On June 3, 2008 the city government issued decree to rename the station to "Novoyasenevskaya" in the order to use name of "Bitsevsky Park" for the future transfer station of the Butovskaya Line. Moscow Metro was granted a 1-year transition period to effect the change in names.

The architects of Metro station "Novoyasenevskaya" (Line 6) are Nikolay Shumakov, Galina Mun and Natalya Shurygina. "Novoyasenevskaya" is a shallow three-vaulted station of column type (depth - 7 metres). There are two rows of deep pink marble columns (26 columns in each row), column spacing - 6 m. The station features track walls faced with deep pink marble and ornamental metal panels of dark green colour. The floor is paved with grey granite. "Novoyasenevskaya" was opened with two vestibules - northwestern and southeastern, but only one is in operation due to the relatively low number of passengers handled by the station each day. The active northwestern underground vestibule is a part of an underpass beneath Novoyasenevsky Avenue with two exits to the both sides of avenue. All exits to a surface are covered with a glass constructions. The unused southeastern underground vestibule was located further down the road, on the edge of the park. Its pavilion was a round building, finished with grey marble and pinkish granite and topped with a disproportionately large weathervane indicating the direction of the wind. In the late-1980s there were plans to move Moscow Zoo from the central part of city to the Bitsa Park (or to built new territory of Zoo). The ground-level pavilion of southeastern underground vestibule was planned to serve visitors of new Moscow Zoo. For this reason, it was decorated with original weathervane "Noah's Ark" (author - Leonid Berlin) with the figures of animals. However, due to local protesters, these plans were never realized. The vestibule operated just few months (since January 17, 1990 till March 1991) before its closing due to low passenger traffic. The exit stairs at the eastern end of the platform, which lead to this vestibule, were barricaded.

The idea of northwestern extension of the Butovskaya Line was discussed soon after its opening. The decision was made in 2004. The tunnels between Metro stations "Lesoparkovaya" and "Bitsevsky Park" were built under the territory of the Bitsa Park. However, it was strongly criticized by some residents of the Yasenevo District. They are sure that construction of the tunnels under the territory of the Bitsa Park will damage root system of trees, that will lead to big ecological damage. According to the Metro builders, the depth of the tunnels under the territory of park is varies from 15 to 30 metres. There were used technologies which helped to minimize the possible ecological damage from the Metro construction. In order to minimize possible ecological damage, it was decided to build only one object of the ventilation system directly at the territory of the Bitsa Park. But despite of this, local residents occasionally intervened into construction process, demanding to stop Metro construction or to build it according to alternative routes.

The preparation works near the future station were started in October 2011. The construction of the station was started in the end of November 2011. On January 24, 2012 there was closed and later dismantled northern exit from the northwestern underground vestibule of Metro station "Novoyasenevskaya" to the odd side of Novoyasenevsky Avenue. It was necessary for construction of the deadends for turnover of trains beyond future Metro station "Bitsevsky Park". As a result, there was built modern pavilion of said exit with elevator for people with reduced mobility instead of old pavilion. There were plans to reopen this exit in 2013, but now it's more likely that it will happen simultaneously with opening of Metro station "Bitsevsky Park".

On August 3, 2012 there began construction of the 2.2-km long left tunnel from "Lesoparkovaya" in direction to Metro station "Bitsevsky Park" with using of TBM "Aysılu" ("Wirth-NFM"); on August 16, 2012 - the 2.29-km long right tunnel between these stations with using of TBM "Laysan" ("Hitachi"). The construction of the left tunnel was finished on May 2, 2013; the construction of the right tunnel - on June 4, 2013. On December 27, 2013 Mayor of Moscow Sergey Sobyanin visited this station, all facing works were mainly completed before New Year. The station is planned to be opened in January-February 2014.

The architects of future Metro station "Bitsevsky Park" are Alexander Nekrasov, Galina Mun, Vyacheslav Molchanov, Alexander Shutov, Yelena Ilyina and Amantay Kurenbayev. "Bitsevsky Park" is a shallow single-vaulted station (depth - 9.5 m). It has asymmetrical vault with long caissons. There were used marble, granite and glass for the decoration of station. The floor is paved with black granite. The right track wall is decorated with glass panel consisting of 359 fragments (artist - Vasily Bubnov and Valeriya Shaposhnikova). This panel is dedicated to the nearby Bitsa Park. There depicted horse riders and poodles near park trees - during 1980 Summer Olympics in Moscow, equestrian events were held at "Bitsa" horse-riding complex that was specially built at the territory of the Bitsa Park in order to host Olympic events. This station was built with one large ground-level vestibule. The transfer to Metro station "Novoyasenevskaya" will be organized via this combined vestibule of both stations, which was built at the site of the old ground-level pavilion of the southeastern underground vestibule of transfer Metro station. This vestibule didn't operated since March 1991. In the end of July 2012 there began demolition of the old ground-level pavilion that lasted till September 2012. The decorative weathervane "Noah's Ark" will be placed near new combined vestibule. The walls of new vestibule are faced with ceramic panels from outside. From inside, the walls and columns of this vestibule are faced with polished marble while floor is paved with granite. The new vestibule is equipped with elevator for people with reduced mobility.

"SPARTAK"

"Spartak" (former name - "Volokolamskaya") is an unopened station on the Moscow Metro's Line 7 which is located under the Tushino Airport near the future "Spartak" Stadium, in the Pokrovskoye-Streshnevo District, North-Western Administrative Okrug. It was constructed in mid-1970s as part of the northern extension of the Krasnopresnensky Radius but never opened. Currently it's one of the three stations of the Moscow Metro which were left unfinished, though these stations are structurally completed. The two other stations are "Delovoy Tsentr" ("Business Center") of the Solntsevsky Radius and Third Interchange Contour, which were structurally built in 1999-2004 and also scheduled to be finished during next three years (2014-2016).

Moscow's 1960s expansion plans called for a construction of a municipal housing district on the old Tushino Airfield, and the station with planned name "Volokolamskaya" was to serve it. In 1967 it was firstly drawed on Moscow Metro map as perspective station under name "Aeropole" ("Airfield"). In 1970 and 1973 this station was drawn on Moscow Metro maps as "Volokolamskaya" due to location near Volokolamsk Highway, which lead in direction to ancient Volokolamsk town in Moscow Region. The northern extension of the Krasnopresnensky Radius of the Line 7 was finished on December 30, 1975 with opening of four new stations and Metro depot "Planernoye". However, the planned estate was never built and Metro station "Volokolamskaya" was left unfinished, though it is structurally complete. Attentive Metro travelers could spot the station out the window of the train between "Shchukinskaya" and "Tushinskaya" (both stations were opened on December 30, 1975), especially when a train is traveling in the opposite direction.

The author of original project of the station is Nina Alyoshina. This is a typical shallow (depth ~ 10 m) three-vaulted station of the column type (so-called "New Centipede" design) with staircases at opposite ends (the vestibules were never built). There are two rows of columns (26 columns in each row), column spacing ~ 6 m.

According to original project, this station was supposed be decorated in grey and yellow colours, with blue mosaic along the track ways. Its columns were supposed to be faced with brown granite with copper frescos in the form of the domes of Volokolamsk Kremlin at the top. This project became basis for the decoration of Metro station "50 Let SSSR" ("50 Years of USSR"), that now "Mirzo Ulugʻbek" ("Mirza Ulugh Beg"), which was opened on November 6, 1977 during the commissioning of first line of the Tashkent Metro in Uzbekistan.

Since mid-1990s, Metro station "Volokolamskaya" became object of research of so-called "diggers". As a result, Administration of Moscow Metro was forced to taken steps to improve security at this object. The plans for the station looked dim until recently, but since Tushino Field often holds large festivals and construction in Moscow has undergone a massive expansion in recent years, the station may enter service after all. Considering that the station is almost complete, it will only take few months to bring it up to operating condition. It is illuminated by a few dim light bulbs and decorated only by signatures of the people who paid the empty carcass a visit. Even on the pathways there is no safety ditch under the tracks.

The real interes of city authorities to this station appeared as a result of the plans for construction of "Spartak" Stadium at the site of Tushino Airfield. The decision about construction of stadium at this place was taken in February 2006. On March 22, 2010 the city government issued decree to rename this station into "Spartak" (the other Metro station with name "Volokolamskaya" was opened on the Line 3 on December 26, 2009). The station is named for the nearby "Spartak" Stadium, which currently is under construction.

FC "Spartak" Moscow is a Russian football club from Moscow. Having won 12 Soviet championships (second only to "Dynamo" Kyiv that has won 13 Soviet championships) and 9 of 21 Russian championships, it's one of the country's most successful clubs. They have also won the Soviet Cup 10 times and the Russian Cup 3 times. "Spartak" have also reached the semi-finals of all three European club competitions - European Champion Clubs' Cup (1990-91), European Cup Winners' Cup (1992-93) and UEFA Cup (1997-98). Historically the club was a part of the "Spartak" sports society, which was founded in 1921. Other teams in the society include ice hockey club HC "Spartak" Moscow. Currently, the club is not connected with "Spartak" sports society and is an independent privately owned organisation. They are nicknamed "Meat".

"Spartak" Stadium (sponsor name - "Otkrytie Arena") is a multi-purpose stadium in Moscow, the construction of which started in October 2010. Once completed in mid-2014, it will be used mostly for football matches and will host the home matches of FC "Spartak" Moscow. The stadium was designed with a capacity of 35.000 people but later this was changed to a 44.000 people with possibility of enlargement to 46.000 people for matches of 2018 FIFA World Cup. The main financing of the construction comes from the club's owner Leonid Fedun through affiliated companies "LUKoil" company and "IFD Kapital". The stadium is to be constructed at the site of the Tushino Airport. The large Russian bank "Otkrytie" purchased the naming rights to the stadium for 6 years. However this name cannot be used when hosting FIFA and UEFA events, since these governing bodies have policies forbidding corporate sponsorship from companies that are not official tournament partners. The new stadium was included in the Russia's bid for the 2018 FIFA World Cup, possibly hosting the opening game, as the "Luzhniki" Stadium is to host the final. On September 29, 2012 it was included into final list of 12 stadiums which will host matches of 2018 FIFA World Cup. Also, "Spartak" Stadium will serve as the Moscow venue during hosting of the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup. There are plans to open monument to most prominent members of "Spartak" sports society at the territory of stadium - Starostin brothers (founders of "Spartak" sports society), Nikita Simonyan (born 1926; Olympic Champion 1956, four-time Soviet Champion and two-time Soviet Cup Winner) and Igor Netto (1930-1999; Olympic Champion 1956, European Champion 1960, five-time Soviet Champion and three-time Soviet Cup Winner).

On March 14, 2012 city authorities declared about contest for preparation of the project of the planning of Metro station. According to estimates of construction company, Metro station was ready on 75%. The completion of construction will cost about a half of cost comparing with construction of new station from scratch. In September 2012 there were started geological researches near Metro station "Spartak". In the end of November 2012 there began preparation of the construction site. On January 14, 2013 there were started works for construction of northern vestibule; on January 21, 2013 - for construction of southern vestibule. On March 4, 2013 there was started fencing of platform from existing tracks in order to have possibility for normal work in daytime. On March 7, 2013 there were started first facing works. The opening of the station will be timed to the opening of "Spartak" Stadium. Originally this station was supposed to be opened in 2013. However, its opening was rescheduled for mid-2014 because passenger traffic at this station is expected to be extremely low before opening of "Spartak" Stadium.

The architect of the station is Dmitry Gursky. The decoration of this station will be dedicated to FC "Spartak". The station will be decorated in red and white colours (the colours of FC "Spartak"). The columns will be faced with white marble with red inserts. The track walls will be decorated with shockproof glass panel with images of football players. According to the new project, the station will be built with two vestibules and five exits: one - from northern vestibule and four - from southern vestibule. The northern vestibule will be ground-level, it will be equipped with three escalators and decorated with logo of FC "Spartak". It will be situated outside the territory of "Spartak" Stadium, near the projected driveway #5219. The southern vestibule will be underground, it will be linked with platform by stairs. It will be situated at the territory of "Spartak" Stadium and will have four exits to the stadium and at the both sides of projected driveway #5219. There are plans to build transfer node with car parking at the projected driveway #5219.

SOUTHWESTERN EXTENSION OF THE LINE 1

In the late 1990s, Moscow's Urban Rapid-Transit planning body - "Metrogiprotrans" proposed a set of Light Metro lines to the districts located beyond Moscow Automobile Ring Road beltway (MKAD). Thus in 2001-2003 the Butovskaya Line was built and opened. Although the novelty of the idea was initially welcomed soon the designs drawbacks became all the more apparent, and one by one other Light Metro projects: Kosino, and Zhulebino were cancelled in favour of a conventional one station extension beyond MKAD. The Solntsevo Light Metro Line however, was to be the second Light Metro to be launched after the Butovskaya Line, continued to be drawn on most Moscow Metro maps. The light Metro line was to begin at the existing terminus of the Line 1, "Yugo-Zapadnaya" ("South-Western"), where an underground station transfer would be organised. It would then turn northwest until reaching the Michurin Avenue and then follow it into highly populated Solntsevo District in total containing seven stations: "Nikulinskaya", "Olimpiyskaya Derevnya" ("Olympic Village"), "Vostryakovo", "Tereshkovo", "Solntsevo", "Borovskoye Shosse" ("Borovsk Highway") and "Novoperedelkino", with a planned extension to Vnukovo International Airport afterwards. Initially it was planned for construction to begin in 2004, but the rising problems of the Butovskaya Line made Moscow planners rethink the idea, and in 2005 the plan was remodelled and two Metro stations "Nikulinskaya" and "Vostryakovo" were removed from the project, but the start of construction was continuously put off 2009 in 2006, 2012 in 2007 and in 2008 the project was cancelled altogether.

By the mid-2000s Moscow Metro was faced with two realities, the first was that financial situation has drastically improved, many of the long standing projects could now be completed. The second one was the drastic rise in passenger traffic, meant that the existing radii (where most of the congestion takes place) would already be filled to the brink, and adding Solntsevo's passengers to the Line 1 would not be wise, as its central facilities are the oldest in the system and might not handle the additional load. In 2008 Moscow Metro published a new revised general plan which effectively returned most of the 1980s chordial projects. The new Solnstevskaya Line would begin at "Park Pobedy" ("Victory Park"), which was initially envisioned as a future transfer between the Mitinsko-Biryulyovskaya and the same Solntsevsko-Mytishcinskaya chords, and then continue south with five stations: "Minskaya" ("Minsk"), "Lomonosovsky Prospekt" ("Lomonosov Avenue"), "Ramenki", "Michurinsky Prospekt" ("Michurin Avenue") and "Ochakovo". Afterwards it is likely will have two Metro stations in Solntsevo itself, two Metro stations in Novo-Peredelkino District and one Metro station in Vnukovskoye Settlement of the Novomoskovsky Administrative Okrug (so-called "new Moscow").

In September 2012, instead of the former plans for construction of the Solntsevo Light Metro Line from existing terminus of the Line 1 or southwestern extension of the Line 1 to the Solntsevo District, city authorities decided to extend the Line 1 to the southwest in direction to the low-populated village of Salaryevo. According to the new plans, in 2014-2015 the Line 1 will be extended southwest with three new Metro stations - "Troparyovo", "Rumyantsevo" and "Salaryevo". This extension should to solve problem with overcrowding of Metro station "Yugo-Zapadnaya", the southwestern terminus of this line. It's planned that as a result of this extension, the passenger traffic will be redistributed at the southern radius of the Line 1. Some later, in the village of Salaryevo will be opened eponymous Metro depot.

"TROPARYOVO"

"Troparyovo" is a future station on the Line 1 of the Moscow Metro. It will be located near the intersection of Lenin Avenue and Vernadsky Avenue, in the Troparyovo-Nikulino District, Western Administrative Okrug.

The station is named after district in which it will be located. The first reference to settlement of Troparyovo dates from 1491. The name of this settlement is supposedly derived from nickname of its former owner, noble priest Ivan "Tropar" (tropar is the Russian word for troparion), who lived in the end of 14th century and became founder of the Troparyovs noble family. Troparyovo belonged to the New Maidens' Convent in 17th-18th centuries. In 1693-1703 there was built Archangel Michael Church. This church was erected in the architectural style of Naryshkin Baroque (also called Moscow Baroque) at the expense of the New Maidens' Convent. In 18th century, as a result of the secularization of the church estates, Troparyovo was taken over by the Board of Savings. In 1812 this settlement was seriously damaged during retreat of Napoléon's Grande Armée from Moscow. In 1921 under Troparyvo arose Tolstoyan agricultural commune "Life and Labour". In 1929 in Troparyovo was established collective farm named after Kliment Voroshilov, and Tolstoyan agricultural commune was liquidated. In same year the settlement was included into Kuntsevsky District of Moscow Region. In 1938 near Troparyovo was built road to Vnukovo Airport (now Kiev Highway). By 1960, Troparyvo has been large settlement with few streets. On August 17, 1960 this settlement was included into boundaries of Moscow. The residential area Troparyovo was part of the Leninsky District in 1960-1969 and Gagarinsky District in 1969-1991. In 1966 there began mass construction of living houses with demolition of the former settlements. The last farm houses were demolished in 1981. On September 12, 1991 was established municipal okrug Troparyovo of the Western Administrative Okrug. On September 28, 1993 it was merged with neighboring municipal okrug of Nikulino into Troparyovo-Nikulino municipal okrug. On July 5, 1995 Troparyovo-Nikulino granted status of the district of Moscow.

For first time, Metro station in Troparyovo appeared in the General Plan of Moscow of 1971 - there existed plans to extend the Line 1 to the Southern Rail Terminal, which should to be built in this area. The project name of this station was "Park imeni XXII Partsezda" ("Park named after 22th Congress of the Party") due to location near eponymous natural park (now Troparyovo Park). However, Southern Rail Terminal was never built. The station remained in the projects before 2011. In 2011, after appointment of new Mayor of Moscow Sergey Sobyanin, "Troparyovo" was included into State Program of Development of the Transport System of Moscow for 2012-2016. In the beginning of 2012, city government decided to accelerate construction of this Metro station.

In April 2011 there were started geological researches in this area. In December 2011 at Vernandsky Avenue was started preparation of the site for construction of the tunnels from Metro station "Yugo-Zapadnaya" ("South-Western") in direction to "Troparyovo". In February 2012 there were started preparation works at the construction site of Metro station "Troparyovo". In May 2012 began construction of the foundation pit of the future station. In July 2012 was started mounting of TBM. On October 22, 2012 there began construction of the 1.38-km long left tunnel from "Yugo-Zapadnaya" in direction to "Troparyovo" with using of TBM "Svetlana", formerly known as "Vera" and "Anna" ("Herrenknecht"). The construction of this tunnel was finished on May 28, 2013. On July 16, 2013 there began construction of the 1.33-km long right tunnel between these stations with using of same TBM "Herrenknecht" under new name - "Eva" (formerly known as "Vera", "Anna" and "Svetlana"). It was finished on January 13, 2014. In October 2013 there began construction of dead end for turnover of trains beyond Metro station "Troparyovo" with using of obsolete non-mechanized TBM "Varyag" (ShchN-1S). By January 15, 2014, there were dug 77 of 290 metres. The station is expected to be opened in August-September 2014.

The architects of the station are Anatoly Tarasov, Nikolay Deyev and Desislava Polyakova. "Troparyovo" will be shallow single-vaulted station (depth - 12 m). The height of vault will be 6 metres. There will be installed one row of floor light fixtures - stylized trees. It will remind about surrounding territory of the Troparyovo natural park (forest) with area of 519 hectares. There will be two underground vestibules with underpasses under Lenin Avenue. The southern vestibule with six exits will be built near the residential microdistrict at Lenin Avenue. The northern vestibule with one exit will be built near the Troparyovo Park and Ruza Street. The both vestibules will be equipped with elevators for people with reduced mobility.
