Yes, these 5 stations and tunnels between them will be underground.

Prime minister of Republic Tatarstan Rustam Minnihanov: Metro in Kazan is defined as one of priority objects







Prime minister of Republic Tatarstan Rustam Minnihanov promised Kazan metro builders that on Monday, on December 28th, 400 million rbl. would be received by them , the document on assignment has already been signed. He pointed out this on a solemn opening of the tunnel heading complex "Altynchech" at a metro station "Aviastroitelnaya" in Aviastroitelny district of Kazan, "Sotsgorod" microdistrict.

“I know that you had problems on payment of taxes, wages payment, Rustam Minnikhanov” said, addressing metro builders, but, despite crisis, ours tunnel heading systems cars should work, the underground in Kazan should not stop constructing”.

RT Prime minister reminded that by 2013 we should have constructed five stations of the Kazan Metro. As he said, Metro building is defined by President of Tatarstan Minimer Shaimiev as one of priority objects.

«In times of crisis we had to cut down a number of investment projects, but there are three objects requiring a close attention, - Rustam Minnikhanov told. These are building of underground, end of building of the modern medical centre (in Naberezhnye Chelny city) and theatre of puppets in Kazan».

27.12.2009, "Republic of Tatarstan Government Portal"


Metro builders in Kazan continue tunnelling

Metro builders have begun constructing new metro tunnels in the Tatarstan’s capital. The tunnelling unit Altynchech has been solemnly launched at the Aviastroitelnaya station. The ceremony was attended by Prime Minister of Tatarstan Roustam Minnikhanov and Mayor of Kazan Ilsur Metshin.

The Kazmetrostroi construction company director Marat Rakhimov said at the meeting, the Altynchech machine would have to make 1,324 metres to the Moscovkskaya station that is planned to be located near the railway station at Vorovsky street. The second machine, Aisylu, will about one and a half months later make a second tunnel. The unit is assembled, and the delay is due to technicalities.

“On behalf of the metro building team, I would like to pledge that if we are given the opportunity and it is necessary, we are ready to fulfil the motto The Metro’s Second Section by the Time of Universiade 2013,” enhanced Marat Rakhimov. “We have devised all the schedules and prepared resources. If the financing is stable, we will fulfil the set task.”

Prime Minister Minnikhanov said the metro builders had been allocated another tranche, allowing to repay the outstanding salary and debt amounts. The head of government stressed that some projects run in Tatarstan, including the metro, a medical centre in Naberezhnye Chelny and a puppet theatre in Kazan, were controlled by the local authorities. Next year, 1.6 billion roubles will be earmarked to build the metro in Tatarstan.

“We are also elaborating on obtaining funds from the federal budget, to build the metro and road junctions. I do hope all the plans will, with the help of such a proficient building team, come true,” said the official.

According to Marat Rakhimov, Kazmetrostroi for the moment has 3 tunnelling units. “The first was launched today, the second will begin operating one and a half months on, while the third is being prepared to build a tunnel between Dekabristy street and Kozia Sloboda. If financing and design specifications are in place, we will launch the third machine in the summer,” assured Rakhimov.

“In 2009, we disbursed 2 billion roubles. Next year, there is a plan for 1.6 billion but there is still no certainty on the federal budget, some money may come from there,” noted the Kazmetrostroi head. Marat Rakhimov recalled that the total cost of the 5 new metro stations was 38 billion roubles, and that the metro builders were set to complete the scope of work by the Universiade 2013 event.

Amazing that even after the fall of the Soviet Union, Russia is still building stations with the same style, it's good because it gives Russian metros their unique character! Congrats Tatar people!

Thank you. The big threat to the Russian metros was in the early 1990st, when group of liberals wanted to destroy all communist symbols at Metro stations. Fortunately, this cultural vandalism was not done.

The next operating station is expected to be "Kozya Sloboda", which should be opened in late August 2010.



It will become the first station on the right bank of the Kazanka River. Project of the station:

Will this station be named "Kozya Sloboda", not "Zarechie"?

The final name, predictably, will be "Kozya Sloboda". This old historic name, which translates roughly as Goat Settlement, was a traditional name for the region (XVII Century) before it became a part of Kazan.

The meeting at the today's Cabinet of Ministers briefing discussed a concept of the Kazan metro's development. It includes constructing 4 lines of the total length of 62 kilometres, with 28 stations. The projected transportation capacity is over 500 thousand people a day.

Completing the first line of the Kazan metro, 18.46-kilometre-long, with 11 stations, is important for providing efficient service for the Universiade 2013 sporting event’s guests. The first line construction costs 39.3 billion roubles, of which 2 billion is required to purchase 10 extra trains. Journalists were today told that about 2 billion roubles was annually allocated from the Tatarstan’s budget for metro construction. In the near future though, Tatarstan will count on federal funds for the project.

February 16, Tatar-inform, Nina Narykova

Current expansion projects include Aviastroitelnaya, Moskovskaya, Dekabristov, Kozya Sloboda and Dubravnaya stations. Here are the renders of Aviastroitelnaya:

Сonstruction of the new tunnel has been started yesterday in Kazan in Aviastroitelny district. Tunnel driving has begun from a ditch of the future "Aviastroitelnaya" metro station to "Moskovskaya" station.
What's about the extension in the south?

Gor'kovskaya entrance? An interior of entrance looks cheap and tacky, except new turnstiles on exit. Exterior is very good and advanced.

I think the entrance looks tacky. Not so much the design, more the details. Krestovsky Ostrov entrance looks tacky and so does all of Volkovskaya...
