"Kozya Sloboda" is a shallow (depth - 14 meters) tri-vaulted station of a column type. Azat Mustafin was architect of the station. The station was made in the style of High-tech architecture. The columns, which have form of the goat legs, are faced with composite, ceramic-metallic and other modern materials. The station has two exits which leads to the Energy University and Aq Bars Bank. Two more exits at the other side of Decebrists street are should be open within two months.

It's projected that passenger volume in Kazan Metro will increase in three times after the opening of station at the other bank of Kazanka River, and time intervals between trains must increase till 11.5 minutes. To solve this problem, will be bought three "Rusich" trains (these are modern trains, which are used now in Moscow Metro). The first train must to arrive in Kazan in January. It should to decrease time intervals till 7 minutes.

"ZOLOTAYA NIVA":

"Zolotaya Niva" is a station of the Dzerzhinskaya Line of Novosibirsk Metro. It is Russia's most eastern Metro station. The construction of this station was planed in 1980s. The construction was started in 1991, but it was stopped due to lack of funding in mid-1990s. The works were resumed in 2006, after the opening of the neighboring station - "Beryozovaya Roshcha" ("Birch Grove"; 2005). The lenght between this stations is 1.71 km. The last 100 meters of the tunnel were built with using cut and cover method due to high level of the groundwaters. The construction of tunnel was finished on June 12, 2010.

According to the original plans, station was opened with the one tunnel and one vestibule with two exits. They had plans to build second tunnel and other vestibule with four exits in 2011. Originally station was planned to be open on June 27, 2010 to the 117-anniversary of the foundation of Novosibirsk. However it was rescheduled on October 7, on the Vladimir Putin's birthday. This fact was used by the leading party "United Russia" for own agitation on the eve of regional elections, which were held on October 10.





However, later it was discovered that the inspectors of the Rostekhnadzor (Federal Service for Ecological, Technological and Nuclear Supervision) given permission only to the operation of the energetic system of the station, but not to its opening for passangers. 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 is still closed now.

On November 29, it was announced that happened strain of the tunnel in an area with high level of groundwaters. On next day Mayor of Novosibirsk accepted the resignation of Nikolay Hvan, the chief of Metrobuilding, and on December 5 Hvan officially ceased its powers. The date of the reopening of the station is unknown till now.

December 5, 2010. Picketing near the vestibule of the closed station:

On December 28, 2010 was celebration dedicated to the 25-anniversary of the Novosibirsk Metro. The first line of Novosibirsk Metro with the five stations was put into operation on December 28, 1985. Especially for this date was created special Metro train "Novonikolayevsk-Novosibirsk", dedicated to the 117-years history of the Novosibirsk (which was named Novonikolayevsk from 1893 till 1926). Each of its four carriages tells about separate periods in a relatively short but remarkable history of Siberian capital. The first carriage dedicated to the foundation and early history of Novosibirsk (1893-1920), the second - its rapid growth and industrialisation (1920-1940), the third - wartime period (1940-1945), the fourth - the history of construction of Novosibirsk Metro (from 1979 till now).

FURTHER DEVELOPMENT - 2011 AND LATER:

Novosibirsk Metropoliten met New Year in a sad mood - with a closed station, with a lack of federal funding and with debt to contractors (18 mln. USD). It's difficult to make predictions about the further development with such situation. The sequence should be follow:
1) Reopening of the station "Zolotaya Niva" for passangers;
2) The construction and opening of the second vestibule of this station with four exits;
3) The construction of the second tunnel from the "Beryozovaya Roshcha" to "Zolotaya Niva" stations and opening of the train movement at this tunnel;
4) The construction and opening of the second vestibule of the "Beryozovaya Roshcha" station.

Construction of new Metro lines has been stopped. The construction of the new Olovozavodsky automobile bridge over the Ob River began in February 2010 and is expected to continue until 2015. When completed, it will be the third automobile bridge over the Ob River in Novosibirsk. The total length of the bridge will be 2095.7 metres. The city goverment has decided to fund this project instead of the financing of Metro building:

Novo-sibirsk.ru


Novo-sibirsk.ru

After completion of the construction of Olozavodsky bridge the funding of the Metro building will resume. The next station of the Novosibirsk Metro planned to be "Ploshchad Stanislavskogo" ("Stanislavski Square") at the southern part of Line 1. This station will be located at the distance 1366 metres from the neighboring station - "Ploshchad Marksa" ("Marx Square"). The preparations for the construction of this station planned to start in 2012-2013:

"PLOSHCHAD STANISLAVSKOGO":

The station will be located under the Stanislavski Square. This square was named after Constantin Stanislavski (1863-1938), the great Russian actor and theatre director, the creator of the famous Stanislavski's system:

Metronsk

After completion of the station "Ploshchad Stanislavskogo" there is planned eastern extension of the Line 2 on 2194 metres from the station "Zolotaya Niva" to the future station "Dovatora" ("Lev Dovator"), which will be named after Soviet major-general (1903-1941), Hero of the Soviet Union (1941):

Thank you very much for this thread, it's very informative and full of photos and maps
This what I appreciate is that despite some difficulties metro networks in different Russian cities are gradually expanding
But I wonder that stations are usually built quite far one from another (as in Novosibirsk - almost 1800 meters in what it seems to be the centre of the city): it's definitely cheaper, but less convenient for the people. And I wonder even more why a lot of stations and lines bear communist names (Lenin, Dzerzhinsky, Kirov, Marx, Komsomol, 1917 October Revolution). Are those people and events still considered in today's Russia the greatest heroes and events in the whole history of your country ???

Because the construction with such distances is more cheaper and faster. This is very important in conditions of limited funding. The stations of the first stage of Moscow Metro building (1931-1935) were built at short distances from each other (13 stations, 11.0 km). But from the second stage (1935-1938) it was decided to built stations with longer intervals (more than 1 km) for acceleration of works.

Quote:

The names of the Metro stations are connected with the names of streets, avenues and squares. Consequently, firstly it's need to rename these names before renaming of Metro stations. But after the wave of renamings in early 1990s this campaign was stopped.

For example, the station "Voykovskaya" in Moscow is named after Pyotr Voykov, a Soviet diplomat whose involvement in the execution of the family of the last Russian Emperor Nicholas II. It has motivated a suggestion of Orthodox Christian groups to rename the station. But the Moscow district, nearest street and five Moscow lanes are also named after Voykov. After renaming this city subjects it's need to change passports, documents, address books, etc. It's just a habit. As said the chief of Moscow Metro, "I'm very doubt that before this campaign people knew who was Pyotr Voykov".

Quote:
