"OBVODNY KANAL":

"Obvodny Kanal" is a St. Petersburg Metro station in the Frunzensky District, Volkovskoye Okrug, St. Petersburg. It is on the Line 5, between "Zvenigorodskaya" and "Volkovskaya" stations. The station has one exit leads to the crossing of the Ligovsky Avenue and enbankment of Bypass Canal.

Both neighboring stations - "Zvenigorodskaya" and "Volkovskaya" were opened on December 20, 2008. Within two years trains bypassed "Obvodny Kanal" without stops because this station had no exit.

"Obvodny Kanal". December 20, 2008:


"Obvodny Kanal". November 2009:


It was difficult to build exit from this station because it's located in the historical district of St. Petersburg. Therefore, it was decided to demolish two buildings - former movie theater "North" and 8-floor house (both buildings were built in 1914) - and to build trade store "Obvodny Kanal" with the vestibule of the station at this site. In 2008 both buildings were demolished. In 2009 were started construction of the escalator tunnel, which was finished on December 25, 2009.

In 2010 was started construction of the trade store with the vestibule of station. The vestibule was opened on December 30, 2010 in the uncompleted building of trade store. The trade store planned to be open this year.

Unfortunately, was continued city program for installing of the NIP (New Informational Space) at the stations. The new pillars and tapes with inscriptions (duplicated in English) made stations less aesthetic. These NIP-inscriptions have been installed on almost all stations:

FURTHER DEVELOPMENT - 2011-2012:



The further development of the St. Petersburg Metro is mainly connected with the development of Line 5:

Urbanrail

According to the words of official persons, they plan to open an average of one new station per year. So, in 2005 was opened station "Komendantsky Prospekt" ("Commandant Avenue"; Line 5), in 2006 - "Parnas" ("Parnassus"; Line 2), in 2008 - "Zvenigorodskaya" ("Zvenigorod"; Line 5) and "Volkovskaya" ("Volkovo"; Line 5), in 2009 - "Spasskaya" ("Saviour"; Line 4), in 2010 - "Obvodny Kanal" ("Bypass Canal"; Line 5). In the end of 2011 they planned to open station "Admiralteyskaya" ("Admiralty") at Line 5. Located at the depth 85 metres, it will be Russia's most deepest station.

There is same situation as it was with the station "Obvodny Kanal". "Admiralteyskaya" is a "ghost" station, which located between stations "Sportivnaya" (opened on September 15, 1997) and "Sadovaya" (opened on December 30, 1991). "Admiralteyskaya" will be most central station in St. Petersburg. It will be located near main tourist sights like Winter Palace with Hermitage Museum.

However, the completion of the stations was hampered by the lack of funds and ongoing controversy over the placement of station's exit. It will eventually have a transfer to the Line 3 station tentatively designated "Admiralteyskaya-2" (the construction of that station has not begun yet). After the exit location was settled, the station was scheduled to open in 2008, but concerns over the station's historic significance pushed the opening back. In June 2009, the issue was finally settled and on. The station is scheduled to open in the end of 2011.

The station's existence has been controversial for decades. Although the need for the station was apparent to the Metro planners for over three decades, the actual construction proved to be a difficult process. The station was to be built close to Hermitage, several notable museums and several buildings designated as federal landmarks, which raised fears that those buildings would be adversely affected by construction. Thus, finding the location of the exit proved to be difficult task that, after multiple attempts, was finally resolved on February 7, 2007. According to the city officials, it will be built on the site of the apartment building at #1/4 on Kirpichny Alley. The building was to be torn down so that a vestibule could be built in its place.

With the issue seemingly resolved, the city officials began moving out the building's residents, completely emptying it by the end of 2008. However the construction stalled due to the debate over the building's historic significance (it was the first building to be restored after the Siege of Leningrad of 1941-1944). In June 2009, the issue was resolved in Metropoliten's favor (though the ruling stipulated that the building's original facade must be restored once the building is complete) and June 11, 2009, the contractors began to demolish the building.

July 8, 2009. Demolition of building:


The construction was commenced once all the debris are cleared. September 28, 2010:

karhu

When the construction of what was originally intended as the northern branch of the Kupchinsko-Primorskaya Line began, the underground hall of "Admiralteystkaya" was built, even as the location of the exit remained uncertain. By 1997, most of the underground hall was completed. However, the lack of resolution over the status of the station's exit, combined with scarcity of funds, put further construction on halt. When the northern branch was opened as a temporary part of the Pravoberezhnaya Line, the train passed the unfinished station without stopping, slowing down slightly while transversing it.

January 2009:


However, in 2005, the construction resumed. Trains began to occasionally stop at this station in early morning hours to drop off workers.

Rendering of the station:

In 2012 there is planned to extend Line 5 on 3.3 km. with two stations - "Bukharestskaya" ("Bucharest") and "Mezhdunarodnaya" ("International"). The vestibules of both stations will be built into ground-levels of the future trade stores.

FURTHER DEVELOPMENT - 2013 AND LATER:


Urbanrail

In 2013 it's planned to be open own vestibule of the station "Spasskaya". This station was opened on March 7, 2009. It's part of the first in St. Petersburg three-way transfer station that also includes "Sadovaya" (opened on December 30, 1991) and "Sennaya Ploshchad" (opened on July 1, 1963) stations. The station does not have a ground-level vestibule or a connecting escalator. Passengers have to transfer to one of the connected station in order to exit to the city.

Station "Spasskaya" (2009):

"KOZYA SLOBODA":

"Kozya Sloboda" ("Käcä Bistäse") is a station on the Kazan Metro that opened December 30, 2010. It is the first station on the right bank of the Kazanka River, in the Moskovsky District. Construction on the station started in February 2006. The construction of the tunnels under the Kazanka River was finished on August 6, 2009. For the construction of Metro tunnels was used the same technology as for the construction of the famous Channel Tunnel linking UK and France. The lenght of the new section (from "Kremlyovskaya" to "Kozya Sloboda") is 2250 metres, the longest in the Kazan Metro. The total lenght of the Kazan Metro is 11.82 km. Therefore, Kazan Metropoliten ceased to be the shortest in Russia and ahead Yekaterinburg Metro, which has the same number of stations (7), but shorter lenght (9.5 against 11.82 km).

The station was set to be called "Kozya Sloboda" (Russian name) / "Käcä Bistäse" (Tatar name), but in the wake of protests led in part by students of Kazan State Energy University the city government settled on the purely descriptive name "Aq Bars". The previous name, which translates roughly as "Goat Settlement", was a traditional name for the region before it became a part of Kazan. Due to citizens' protests and online voting, however, the name was switched back to "Kozya Sloboda". Other candidate names included "Energouniversitet" ("Energy University") and "Zarechye" ("Beyond the River Area").
