RUSSIAN METROS - SUMMARY OF THE YEAR AND FURTHER DEVELOPMENT:

I wrote a similar report last year. So I decided to made this traditional.

In 2011 in Russia were opened five new Metro stations - in Moscow (3), St. Petersburg and Yekaterinburg. This is less than it was in the original plans (6), because one station in Yekaterinburg was not open due to problems with the delivery of the escalator parts. In general, last year was not unusual in terms of Russian Metro construction. That is good news that the era of "dolgostroy" ("long-term constructions"; this term became popular in post-Soviet Russia) coming to an end. The construction of all Metro stations, which were opened last year (including Metrotram stations in Volgograd), started more than 10 years ago. The last objects of "dolgostroy" - "Chkalovskaya" Metro stations in Yekaterinburg and "Gorkovskaya" Metro station in Nizhny Novgorod - are planned to be opened this year.

Speaking in general, pace of Metro construction in Russia became very slow comparing with Soviet times.

Number of the Metro stations, which were opened in Russia since 1990:

(Soviet times)
1990 - 4 stations: Moscow (4);
1991 - 12 stations: Moscow (5), St. Petersburg (3), Yekaterinburg (3), Novosibirsk;

(In 1992-1994 were opened station, which were mainly completed in Soviet times)
1992 - 5 stations: Novosibirsk (2), Moscow, Samara, Yekaterinburg;
1993 - 4 stations: Nizhny Novgorod (2), Samara (2);
1994 - 3 stations: Yekaterinburg (2), Moscow;

(The stations, which were opened after 1994, were built in post-Soviet times)
1995 - 6 stations: Moscow (6);
1996 - 3 stations: Moscow (3);
1997 - 2 stations: St. Petersburg (2);
1998 - 0 stations;
1999 - 3 stations: St. Petersburg (2), Moscow;
2000 - 2 stations: Moscow, Novosibirsk;
2001 - 1 station: Moscow;
2002 - 4 stations: Moscow, Nizhny Novgorod, Samara, Yekaterinburg;
2003 - 6 stations: Moscow (6);
2004 - 0 stations;
2005 - 8 stations: Kazan (5), Moscow, St. Petersburg, Novosibirsk;
2006 - 2 stations: Moscow, St. Petersburg;
2007 - 3 stations: Moscow (2), Samara;
2008 - 6 stations: Moscow (3), St. Petersburg (2), Kazan;
2009 - 4 stations: Moscow (3), St. Petersburg;
2010 - 5 stations: Moscow (2), St. Petersburg, Kazan, Novosibirsk;
2011 - 5 stations: Moscow (3), St. Petersburg, Yekaterinburg.

As we can see, a record result was in 2005 when there was opened the first line of the Kazan Metro. The next year, again 5 stations planned to be open - in St. Petersburg (2), Moscow, Yekaterinburg and Nizhny Novgorod.

In the next posts I will write about results of 2011 and plans for the near future.

"BORISOVO":





"Borisovo" is a Moscow Metro station in the western part of Brateyevo District, Southern Administrative Okrug, Moscow. It is on the Line 10, between "Maryino" and "Shipilovskaya" stations. The station has two vestibules and two exits.

The station was named for the former small village Borisovo, which was located here before the area was included as the part of Moscow on August 17, 1960. This village was known since 12th century as Ovrazhki (Little Gullies). In 1591 the 150.000-strong troops of the Crimean Khan Ğazı II Girej invaded in Russia. However, near Moscow Crimean aggressors were defeated by Russian Army under leadership of Boris Godunov (1551-1605). In gratitude, Russian Tsar Fyodor I Ivanovich granted Ovrazhki to Boris Godunov, and the village got its present name - Borisovo (Boris's Village). Some later Boris Godunov became the first non-Rurikid Tsar of Russia from 1598 to 1605.

The construction of the tunnel between "Borisovo" and "Maryino" stations was held in 1993-1996. There was dug 200 meters of tunnel, but construction was fully stopped in September 1998 due to insufficient funding. In March 2004 TBM "Lovat" was dismantled, brought to the surface, refurbished (cleaned of rust and painted) and transferred to the Kazan for the construction of the Kazan Metro. The construction process resumed only on October 17, 2008 when money flow resumed and was started construction of the left tunnel between "Maryino" and "Borisovo" stations. The construction of all tunnels was finished on November 9, 2009.

The architects of the station were Nikolay Shumakov (project leader), Vadim Volovich and Natalya Shurygina. "Borisovo" is a shallow single-vaulted station. All three new stations were decorated in the one typical style. "Borisovo" station is made in black, gray and white colours. The track walls are lined with aluminum panels of the color of dark copper, while the floor is paved with gray granite with longitudinal black inserts. Light streams from the niches in the ceiling where vertical cylinders with light bulbs are installed. For the first time in Moscow Metro was introduced original technical decision - it's possible to remove light fixtures into service rooms for its repairment and replacement.

"SHIPILOVSKAYA":



"Shipilovskaya" is a Moscow Metro station in the centre of Zyablikovo District, Southern Administrative Okrug, Moscow. It is on the Line 10, between "Borisovo" and "Zyablikovo" stations. The station located at the intersection of Shipilovskaya street and Musa Cälil street. It has two vestibules and five exits: two - from the northern vestibule and three - from the southern vestibule. Due to technical reasons, southern vestibule was opened on December 15, 2011, after the thirteen days since the opening of the stations.

The station named after Shipilovskaya street, located near the station, which itself named after Shipilovo - a small village, which was located here before the area was included as the part of Moscow on August 17, 1960. This village is known to be located here since 16th century and its name connected with Russian personal first name Shipil (sometimes Shipilo).

During Soviet times the construction of metro line in South-East Moscow had been planned by the government of Moscow back in the beginning of the second half of 20th century. Early in the 1990s the construction began. During 1993-1996 on the western side of Musa Cälil street a huge ditch was dug up. Until 1998 there was some development, some pillars was being set. The station was expected to be opened in 2000, but due to the funding deficit the construction was stopped in September 1998. In 1999-2000 all equipment was taken off. In 2004 tunnel boring machine (TBM) was picked up from the ditch ground and was repaired to be given for the development of Toshkent Metro. By this time this TBM had finished deepening of a tunnel from "Zyablikovo", other tunnel was deeped just partly, for about 40 metres. Other TBM that was located there all that time was rusted through, but in 2008—2009 was repaired and finished construction of its construction site. During temporary closing-down the ditch was drowned with the rain water due to lack of normally built pillars. By 2005 several drift sands was formed and the ditch was overgrown with ooze. So that meant that there were no point in further continuation of any development in this construction site. For this reason, the ditch was dug in the autumn of 2008. At the same time a new construction began in a new site, located near an intersection of Musa Cälil street and Shipilovskaya street. During the following two years the development went on very quickly. On July 3, 2010 Shipilovskaya street was blocked for any traffic due to constructing conditions. In late August of 2011 Shipilovskaya street was asphalted. Musa Cälil street was asphalted too and enlarged. Bus stops there were reconstructed. By the end of November entrances were built, the construction was officially finished.

The architects of the station were Nikolay Shumakov (project leader), Vadim Volovich and Natalya Shurygina. "Shipilovskaya" station is made in black, gray and white colours. The track walls are lined with aluminum panels of the color of old bronze, while the floor is paved with gray and black granite. The ceiling of the station features triangular caissons.

"ZYABLIKOVO":



"Zyablikovo" is a Moscow Metro station in the Zyablikovo District, Southern Administrative Okrug, Moscow. It is on the Line 10 serving as its southern terminus. The station is located in the southern part of Moscow, on the border of Zyablikovo and Orekhovo-Borisovo Yuzhnoye Districts. It has two vestibules and three exits. "Zyablikovo" is a transfer station, with the transfer to "Krasnogvardeyskaya" ("Red Guards") station which belongs to the Line 2. At the time of opening the transfer, both "Krasnogvardeyskaya" and "Zyablikovo" were the terminal stations on their respective lines.

The station is named after the village of Zyablikovo, formerly located to the south of the station, which became part of Moscow on August 17, 1960. This village is known to be located here since 17th century. It gave the name to the present-day Zyablikovo District. It's interesting that both transfer stations were named in the honour of the district, in which located - "Krasnogvardeyskaya" has old name of district (Krasnogvardeysky), while "Zyablikovo" has current name of the district.

The construction of the "Zyablikovo" station was held in 1993-1996, but was fully stopped in September 1998 due to insufficient funding. The construction process resumed only in late 2008 when money flow resumed. In the spring of 2011 began construction of the transfer between "Zyablikovo" and "Krasnogvardeyskaya" stations. The testing trip by new section was made on November 25, 2011.

The architects of the station were Nikolay Shumakov (project leader), Vadim Volovich and Natalya Shurygina. "Zyablikovo" station is made in black, gray, green and white colours. The track walls are lined with aluminum panels of the color of patinated copper, while the floor is paved with gray and black granite. The ceiling of the station features rectangular niches between bearing arches. At the station were built balconies over the track ways, which connected with the stairs in the centre of hall and serve for the transfer to "Krasnogvardeyskaya" station. Therefore, "Zyablikovo" became fourth station of Moscow Metro with balconies after "Komsomolskaya" (Line 1; 1935), "Bulvar Dmitriya Donskogo" (Line 8; 2002) and "Vystavochnaya" (Line 4; 2005). Also, due to technical reasons, "Zyablikovo" was built in curve. It became fifth curve station in Moscow Metro. Four other curve stations are located on Line 4 - "Alexandrovsky sad" (1935), "Kutuzovskaya" (1958), "Vystavochnaya" (2005) and "Mezhdunarodnaya" (2006).

THE OPENING OF THE OWN VESTIBULE OF THE "SRETENSKY BOULEVARD" STATION

The other significant event was the opening of the own vestibule of the "Sretensky Boulevard" station (Line 10).


Yury Gridchin

"Sretensky Boulevard" is a Moscow Metro station in the Meshchansky District, Central Administrative Okrug, Moscow. It is located on the Line 10, between "Trubnaya" and "Chkalovskaya" stations. The construction, which began in the late 1980s, has frequently stalled as a result of continuous breaks in finances. Only in 2004 did proper funding resume, which allowed finishing the construction. The station was opened on December 29, 2007 only with transfer at "Turgenevskaya" (Line 6) station. On January 13, 2008 was opened second transfer at "Chistye Prudy" (Line 1) station. During 3.5 years station had no own vestibule - it was necessary to walk via platform of one of two transfer stations for reach exit to city.

"Sretensky Boulevard" was named after nearest boulevard with same name, which is part of the Boulevard Ring of Moscow. The station opening had been long awaited, as it simultaneously allowed transfers to two other stations: "Chistye Prudy" ("Clean Ponds") of the Line 1 and "Turgenevskaya" ("Ivan Turgenev") of the Line 6. The projected passenger dynamics for the station are 10.800 per hour on entry and 20.100 on exit, which allows for a dramatic occupancy decrease on the Ring Line, particularly on the "Komsomolskaya" ("Communist Union of Youth") — "Kurskaya" ("Kursk") path.

The station, designed by architects Nikolay Shumakov and Galina Mun, features a standard Line 10's deep-level (depth - 60 meters) pylon-trivault design with the base set as a monolith concrete plate. White fibreglass is used on the vaults of the central (9.5 metre diameter) and the platform halls (8.5 m) as well as the escalator and transfer corridor ceilings, which also doubles the hydroisolation. Initially it was though that the station's main decorative feature would include a set of three metre high bronze and rock sculptures in the niches of all 30 pylons. Made by leading Russian sculptors, they would stand on granite pedestals with luminescent lamps lighting down on top of them. However recently it has emerged that this would be too costly, and hence the pylon design was altered to now include a set of metallic artworks on themes of the Boulevard Ring. White marble covers the floors, whilst flooring are done with granite.

There are two escalator tunnels leading from both ends of the station: one directly to "Chistye Prudy" (Line 1) station, and the other to a combined transfer to "Turgenevskaya" (Line 6) as well as a diversion to a second escalator tunnel to the surface. The combined vestibule is located under the Turgenev Square at the beginning of Academician Sakharov Avenue and next to the Sretensky Boulevard for which the station is named. In an effort to conserve the spendings and time, the vestibule and the escalator tunnel to the surface were opened later.

Originally the opening of the own vestibule was scheduled on the end of 2010. However, it was postponed due to problems with delivery of equipment for the escalators. In the last year its opening was postponed several times, but in the end the opening ceremony took place on May 31, 2011. The main sights of the vestibule are original ceiling, which decorated with the colored triangular segments, and big decorative glass with the images of children playing.

2011 - RECONSTRUCTIONS, RESTORATIONS AND RENOVATIONS:

Unfortunately, not all planned reconstructions have been implemented in full. According to the original plans, there should to be replaced escalators at the station "Park Kultury" ("Park of Culture"; Ring Line) and escalators at the one of two vestibule of the "Babushkinskaya" ("Mikhail Babushkin") and "Medvedkovo" stations, Line 6. However, it was not done due to same problem - delivery of equipment for the escalators. It's a sad fact, that factually in Russia remained only one plant, which is able to produce escalators according to the Russian Metro standarts - "ELES" in St. Petersburg. The opening of many stations in Moscow and Russia in general was been postponed several times, because this plant was been not able to made escalators in time. As result, it became the limiting factor of the Metro construction in the country. Facing with this problem, new Mayor of Moscow Sergey Sobyanin proposed to organize producing of the escalators on the base of ZIL automotive factory in Moscow, but these plans remained unrealized.

At the station "Park Kultury" of Ring Line (opened on January 1, 1950) they plan to replace old escalators and renovate vestibule. The problem that the transfer on the station "Park Kultury" of Line 1 (opened on May 15, 1935) is located only in the combined ground-level vestibule of these stations. Therefore, the station of Ring Line was closed for passengers on February 5, 2011 - the trains bypass this station without stops. Firstly the reopening of this station after reconstruction was rescheduled from December 28, 2011 to the January-February 2012, and later - to March 30, 2012.

Fortunately, on April 28, 2011 at the station "Babushkinskaya" (Line 6; opened on September 29, 1978) was closed only one (southern) of two vestibules. Its opening after reconstruction was rescheduled from December 30, 2011 to the May 30, 2012.

Station "Babushkinskaya", named after Mikhail Babushkin (1893-1938) - Soviet polar aviator, a Hero of the Soviet Union (1937):

On December 8, 2011 on the turnstiles in the southern vestibule of "Tsaritsyno" station (Line 2) were installed pyramidal barriers for the fight with "gatecrashers":


Among the other events can be mentioned the opening of the second transfer bridge between old platform (opened on August 31, 1965) and new platform (opened on January 7, 2008) of the "Kuntsevskaya" station (Line 3/4). Previously there was only one transfer bridge, which connect eastern ends of both platforms. The bridge in the western part was opened on August 13, 2011.

On October 28, 2011 in Moscow after long reconstruction was opened Bolshoy Theatre. During reconstruction there were made additional underground rooms for the artists, and its total volume was greatly increased. During four days, on November 19-20 and November 26-27 there was made reconstruction of tracks for the protection of theatre from vibration in the closest Metro tunnels. The central part of Line 2 was closed for passengers. It was necessary to remove old rubble between the sleepers and replace it with new one after placing of mats. Unlike railways, this process is not mechanized in Metro. Therefore, these manual works were very hard. Nevertheless, this work was made in time.

2011 - CULTURAL EVENTS:

May 15, 2011 was a birthday of the Moscow Metro, which was opened in 1935. By coincidence, this date coincided with the traditional Night of Museums in Moscow (14/15 May). Therefore, the second consecutive year, it was decided to combine these two events and to organize night concert in the Moscow Metro. It was held at the station "Kropotkinskaya" ("Peter Kropotkin"), which was opened as station of first Moscow Metro line on May 15, 1935.

To become a spectator, it was necessary to fill out a questionnaire at the site of orchestra, participate in a simple contest at the site of Moscow Metro and receive an invitation. There was a sold-out at the station for the second year in a row.

Last year was musical travel - from Russia to the Italy and Spain (because 2011 was Year of Italy & Spain in Russia), later to Argentina and comeback into Russia in the end.

Here was played same music:
1) Pyotr Tchaikovsky - "Souvenir de Florence";
2) Sergey Rakhmaninov - "Elegy";
3) Nikolay Rimsky-Korsakov - "Flight of the Bumblebee";
4) Giacomo Puccini - "I Crisantemi";

That night was presented the new exposition of the special train "Aquarelle". This train was created on June 1, 2007 and currently operated at Line 3. Its first exposition was based on the paintings of People Artist of Russia Sergey Andriyaka (15 works) and his students (30 works). This exposition was replaced on May 13, 2009 by the 35 works, which were based on the 35 aquarelles from the collection of Russian Museum in St. Petersburg. On May 12, 2010 the exposition was changed again. The third exposition was based on the 35 works from collection of the Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts in Moscow. The new exposition is based on the works from collection of the regional Vyatka Art Museum named after Viktor Vasnetsov and Apollinary Vasnetsov in Kirov. Here are represented paintings of the various artists - from Boris Kustodiev to Vasily Kandinsky.

Metro stations design images that never got implemented were displayed at the Metro Gallery at the "Vystavochnaya" ("Exhibition") station. The exhibition "Nonexistent Metro", organized by Moscow Metro and "Metrogiprotrans", was opened on June 15, 2011.

"Metrogiprotrans", in former times known as "Metroproject" was set up back in 1930s to do the design of Moscow Metro stations. Although it boasted the best architects of the time, none of them had experience in designing of Metro stations. As a result, one task was assigned to several workshops and the best design of the station was later selected by a special commission. The other designs were put in the archive only to be studied by specialists and young architects searching for inspiration from the works of their colleagues. Some of these works were on public display in the Metro Gallery which is free and open for visitors every day.

Station "Vystavochnaya" ("Exhibition") was opened at Line 4 on September 10, 2005. The first photo exhibition in Moscow Metro was opened at this station on December 23, 2005.

The themes of the previous exhibitions:
1) December 23, 2005 - "Presentation of the world" (author - Yury Rost);
2) May 15, 2006 - "Birds" (author - Yury Rost);
3) December 25, 2006 - "Ice" (author - Yury Rost);
4) February 29, 2008 - "Island of people" (about Iceland, author - Yury Rost);
5) May 15, 2009 - "Young and Famous" (based on photo archives);
6) May 13, 2010 - "Paris-Moscow" (about Paris Metro, based on photo archives).
