That's really neat. An usual bi-level underwater station. There are bi-level underwater tunnels in the NY subway, but no underwater stations. I wonder how many underwater stations there are in the world.

Why "bi-level"? It's a single-vaulted station with two exits at the both ends of the platform. Miass River isn't Volga, so it is not big problem to build such underwater station at the deep level.

Oops, I got confused. It is the Torgovy Tsentr station in Omsk that I was looking at that is bi-level. The Torgovy Tsentr station in Chelyabinsk has a single platform, apparently.

A very interesting question. There is going to be one metro station located under sea in Helsinki, a part of the western extension currently u/c:

Perhaps we should open a new thread if we find more.

FUTURE METRO SYSTEMS - CONTINUATION

If the situation with Metro construction in Omsk is more or less encouraging and there continues construction works in Chelyabinsk (although with slow speed), that construction of the Krasnoyarsk Metro was fully stopped last year.

KRASNOYARSK METRO

Krasnoyarsk is a city and the administrative center of Krasnoyarsk Region, located on the both sides of Yenisei River. Krasnoyarsk is the largest city and cultural centre in Central & Eastern Siberia and Russia's Far East. It is the third largest city in Siberia (after Novosibirsk and Omsk), with a population of 0.991 million (2011). Krasnoyarsk is an important junction of the Trans-Siberian Railway and one of Russia's largest producers of aluminium. The main industry also includes machine construction, chemical industry and shipyards. The city is notable for its architecture; great Russian writer Anton Chekhov (1860-1904) judged Krasnoyarsk the most beautiful city in Siberia.

BRIEF HISTORY OF METRO CONSTRUCTION IN KRASNOYARSK:

Krasnoyarsk Metro System is a future subway system in the city of Krasnoyarsk. Construction began at a slow pace in the late 1990s. Initially the plans were to open it in 2005, but this got postponed to 2015. In 2010 federal funding was slashed and it's uncertain when the metro will be finished.

The necessary in Krasnoyarsk Metro was recognized in 1960s. The future Metro lines were included into General Plan of the City in early-1970s. In 1983 Soviet government decided to built Metro systems in Krasnoyarsk and Riga. It was exceptional solutions because in these times population of the both cities was not yet reached necessary number for Metro construction - 1 million people. Acording to rumours, the reasons were that Riga was capital of Soviet Latvia and Konstantin Chernenko (Soviet ruler in 1984-1985) was native of Krasnoyarsk Region. The project works began in 1984, but in 1989 all works were stopped (as in the other cities, where construction of the Metro systems wasn't started).

The project works were resumed in post-Soviet Russia in 1993. In 1994 the project was been approved. According to this project, there should to be built 8.5-km segment with five stations - "Vysotnaya", "Vokzalnaya", "Kopylovskaya" (now "Ulitsa Kopylova"), "Ploshchad Revolyutsii" and "Prospekt Mira". Daily ridership is projected at 169.000 passengers and yearly ridership at 55 million. During first stage, there should to be opened 5.17-km section with three stations in the northwestern and central parts of the city - "Vysotnaya", "Ulitsa Kopylova" and "Vokzalnaya".

The preparation works were started in 1994. The real construction of Krasnoyarsk Metro began on October 17, 1995. However, after three years of work and 500 meters of tunneling, construction was slowed considerably due to 1998 Russian financial crisis. On September 5, 2003, new tunneling equipment "Lovat" was put into operation, but another funding cut stopped progress again.

By 2005, the Federal Government stepped in to help the project along. 144 million rubles were allocated by Moscow which would help advance the tunnels another 250 meters. 2006 brought another 230 million rubles to finish the remaining 400 meters between the first two stations and start 100 meters towards the third station. In 2007 were spent 630 million rubles, including 588 million from federal budget. By 2008, on construction of Krasnoyarsk Metro were spent about 4.8 billion rubles (~ 160 million USD) during 12 years, were built 3 km of tunnels. 2008 brought another 801 million rubles. However, in 2009 due to global financial crisis the funding decreased to 52.3 million rubles.

While the total plan calls for a total of three lines and 30 stations, only 5.17 km of the system and three stations were planned to be opened in 2010. A fourth station was been considered and would push the opening date to 2012. In 2014, two more stations on Line 1 were expected to open, bringing the system to a total of five (or six) stations and 8.5 km of length. At that point, it is estimate that the total cost would be 19 billion rubles (~ 630 million USD).

In 2009 it was decided to stopped construction works at the "Ploshchad Revolyutsii" station and to put it on conservation. In 2011 it was decided to stopped all construction works. However, in January 2012 the Governor of Krasnoyarsk Region decided to resume construction.

The construction of the Metro in Krasnoyarsk going in difficult geological conditions due to unstable soil. The majority of the planned station are deep-level, the average depth of the Krasnoyarsk Metro will be about 60 meters. Krasnoyarsk Metro is being built by LLC "Krasnoyarskmetrostroy" construction company, which is part of JSC "Bamtunnelstroy" also based in Krasnoyarsk.

A further 8 stations on first line are planned for an northeastern extension (to Korkino) and one more station to the northwest, "Bugach". The second line is supposed to connect the city centre with residential areas on the south side of the river. To the north it is planned to split into two branch, the right one going into the historic centre and the left one north to Solontsy. The third line won't cross the other two lines in the city centre, but the first line at "Oktyabrskaya" and the second line in the southeast on the southern shore.

I don't speak Russian, but I watched the Youtube film on the Krasnoyarsk metro construction you had posted and heard the word "podzemka" which sounds very funny to my Polish ear But it's an ingenious way of translating the English word "underground" understandable to all Slavs
