NORTHERN EXTENSION OF LINE 10

There is planned northern extension of Line 10 with six new stations - from "Maryina Roshcha" to "Seligerskaya" (total length - 10.6 km). Later there is planned to built two other stations - "Yubileynaya" and "Degunino". All six stations will be deep-level, because with the other type of construction it will be necessary to limit road movement at the busy transport magistral - Dmitrov Highway. Almost all stations will be built according to the typical project.

"BUTYRSKAYA":

"Butyrskaya" is a future station of Line 10 of the Moscow Metro. It will be located near the Ogorodny Driveway, Rustaveli street and Dobrolyubov Driveway, in the Butyrsky District, North-Eastern Administrative Okrug.

The architects of the station are Nikolay Shumakov (project leader), Alexander Nekrasov, Galina Mun and Vladimir Filippov. "Butyrskya" will be deep-level three-vaulted station of pylon type. The track walls will be lined with aluminum panels, the pylon will be faced with marble, while the floor will be paved with granite. The station will be have two vestibules.

THIRD INTERCHANGE CIRCUIT

The Third Interchange Circuit (officially "the third set of junctions") is a proposed rapid transit line of Moscow Metro. It is planned to be the bigger ring line running outside of the existing one, namely Ring Line 5. It will be third interchange circuit of Moscow Metro, after the complex of transfer stations in the central part of Moscow (first interchange circuit) and existing Ring Line 5 (second interchange circuit).

The first chord of the ring will connect Line 4 at station "Vystavochnaya" ("Exhitbition") via "Delovoy Tsentr" ("Business Center") through station "Khoroshyovskaya" (interchange to Line 7 at "Polezhayevskaya") to Line 9 at station "Savyolovskaya" via "Nizhnyaya Maslovka". Three originally planned stations between "Delovoy Tsentr" and "Khoroshyovskaya" ("Shelepikha", "Presnya" and "Mnevniki") have been suspended temporarily due to the difficulty of construction within dense industrial areas. Construction of this segment is expected to be complete in 2015.

Third Interchange Circuit planned to be automated line. All station of this segment will be built in one style. There will be built automated doors. The only difference will be in the color spectrum. The pylons of the transfer stations will be have color of the transfer lines at the official schemes for better orientation in the trains.

"DELOVOY TSENTR":

"Delovoy Tsentr" ("Business Centre") is a future station of Third Interchange Circuit. It will be located near the International Business Centre, in the Presnensky District, Central Administrative Okrug. "Delovoy Tsentr" will be built with two interchanges to the existing station "Vystavochnaya" of Line 4 and future station "Delovoy Tsentr" of Solntsevskaya Line. "Delovoy Tsentr" will be shallow three-vaulted station of column type.

SOLNTSEVSKAYA LINE:

Also, there will be built first segment of Solntsevskaya Line, which later planned to be part of Kalininsko-Solntsevskaya Line 8. Kalininsko-Solntsevskaya Line is a future Moscow Metro line that will see the expansion of the Metro to the Solntsevo District in Moscow.

First project - radius

Historically, most of the today's Western Administrative District became part of Moscow only in 1960, while the district of Solntsevo, which is located beyond Moscow Automobile Ring Road was added in 1984 and redeveloped as a typical bedroom raion (residential district). The Moscow Metro since the completion of the Frunzesnky and Filyovsky radii in the mid 1960s, left a vast region which has called for an additional metro radius since the 1971 general plan of Moscow.

The original plan proposed to utilise the Line 3 by turning from its western terminus at "Kievskaya" station to the southwest and continuing along the Michurin Avenue all the way into Solntsevo. Moreover in doing so the Line 3 would cease to exist, as the planned Perovsky radius would dock with "Arbatskaya" station, and the deep 1953 section of the line would join the new Kiyevsko-Perovskaya Line, whilst the historic "Aleksandrovsky Sad" - "Ploshchad Revolyutsii" service would restart creating a new Filyovsko-Izmaylovskaya Line.

However this plan was never realised, partly because the Moscow Metro was required in other districts, partly because the Line 4's construction was such that prevented a high-speed operation due to the vast amount of surface sections.

Second project - chord

In 1984 Solntsevo became part of Moscow, and the adjacent districts within Moscow Automobile Ring Road were becoming over-loading the existing service. Simultaneously Moscow's Urban Rapid-Transit planning body - "Metrogiprotrans" was continuing to debate whether it was suitable of splitting the Line 3 and the whole classical ring-radial layout of the metro. Owning to the disadvantages of the over-congested centre, initially in 1984 I. Burdakov published an article in "Pravda" where he proposed a set of chordial and semi-chordial lines that would bypass the city centre and the Ring Line, or at least have some of the transfers outside the ring, which applies to the latter group and the Line 10 was to result of this.

Eventually "Metrogiprotrans" welcomed the idea, and suggested a set of four chordial lines that would appear as standard radii but instead of passing through Ring Line would pass instead outside the city centre. Not only would this relieve main congestion zones by offering passengers a second transfer contour, the project also solved one of Mosocow's most oldest pending plans the second ring, as the chords would naturally form one, and a ring service could be organised.

For Solntsevo was placed at the end of a Solntsevo-Mytishchinskaya Line, which would begin in the adjacent to Moscow city of Mytishchi in the northeast, follow the Yaroslavl Highway until docking with "VDNKh" station with a cross-platform transfer, and then wrap around the city centre on a north western edge: "Maryina Roshcha", "Dynamo", "Begovaya", "Moscow-City" and finally "Park Pobedy", after which it would resume its previous path and continue all the way to Solnsevo, and then beyond it to Vnukovo Airport.

The chord was planned to be the second order after the Stroginsko-Biryulyovskaya one was to be opened in the mid 1990s. However the Soviet Union collapsed before any of those projects could be realised.

Third Project - Light Metro

The dissolution of the Soviet Union brought severe financial trouble to the Metro, and the Metro administration to reality that it would never have the means to construct such major sections as the chordial lines. As an alternative in the late 1990s "Metrogiprotrans" proposed a set of Light Metro lines to raions located beyond Moscow Automobile Ring Road. Thus in 2001-2003 the Butovskaya Light Metro Line was built and opened. Although the novelty of the idea was initially welcomed soon the designs drawbacks became all the more apparent, and one by one other Light Metro projects: "Kosino" and "Zhulebino" were cancelled in favour of a conventional one station extension beyond Moscow Automobile Ring Road. The Solntsevo Light Metro Line however, was to be the second Light Metro to be launched after the Butovskaya Line, continued to be drawn on most Moscow Metro maps.

The light Metro line was to begin at the existing terminus of the Line 1, "Yugo-Zapadnaya" ("South-Western"), where an underground station transfer would be organised. It would then turn northwest until reaching the Michurin avenue and then follow it into Solntsevo in total containing seven stations: "Nikulinskaya", "Olimpiyskaya Derevnya" ("Olympic Village"), "Vostryakovo", "Tereshkovo", "Solntsevo", "Borovskoye Shosse" ("Borovsk Highway") and "Novoperedelkino", with a planned extension to Vnukovo Airport afterwards.

Initially it was planned for construction to begin in 2004, but the rising problems of the Butovskaya Line made Moscow planners rethink the idea, and in 2005 the plan was remodelled and two stations "Nikulinskaya" and "Vostryakovo" were removed from the project, but the start of construction was continuously put off 2009 in 2006, 2012 in 2007 and in 2008 the project was cancelled altogether.

Сurrent project

By the mid-2000s Moscow Metro was faced with two realities, the first was that financial situation has drastically improved, many of the long standing projects could now be completed. The second one was the drastic rise in passenger traffic, meant that the existing radii (where most of the congestion takes place) would already be filled to the brink, and adding Solntsevo's passengers to the Line 1 would not be wise, as its central facilities are the oldest in the system and might not handle the additional load. So in 2008 Moscow Metro published a new revised general plan which effectively returned most of the 1980s chordial projects. The new Solnstevskaya Line would begin at "Park Pobedy" ("Victory Park"), which was initially envisioned as a future transfer between the Mitinsko-Biryulyovskaya and the same Solntsevko-Mytishcinskaya chords, and then continue south with four stations: "Minskaya" ("Minsk"), "Mosfilmovskaya" ("Mosfilm"), "Lomonosovsky Prospekt" ("Lomonosov Avenue"), "Michurinsky Prospekt" ("Michurin Avenue") and "Olimpiyskaya Derevnya" ("Olympic Village"). Afterwards it is likely to have two or three stations in Solntsevo itself.

The plan of having the northern route of the chord is still under question, but it is more than likely that the extension to the existing provision at "Delovoy Tsentr" ("Business Centre") will take place. Construction of the line began soon after the Mitino-Strogino extension is completed circa 2011, with opening planned for 2015. It has also been suggested that the radius can linked to the Line 8 after that extends to "Delovoy Tsentr" itself.

"SUVOROVSKAYA" AND "STADION SPARTAK":

Also in the near future they planned to built two stations in the existing tunnels - "Suvorovskaya" (Ring Line) and "Spartak" (Line 7).

"Suvorovskaya" ("Alexander Suvorov") is a future station of the Moscow Metro's Ring Line, between the "Novoslobodskaya" ("New Settlement") and "Prospekt Mira" ("Peace Avenue") stations. The station will be built with interchange to the station "Dostoyevskaya" ("Fyodor Dostoyevsky") station of Line 10. It will be located near Olympic Stadium and Suvorov Square, on the border of Tverskoy and Meshchansky Districts, Central Administrative Okrug.

"Suvorovskaya" will be deep-level three-vaulted station of the pylon type. During the construction of Ring Line in 1950s was made technical opportunity for the construction of the station in the existing tunnel. In 1990s was built construction site for this station, but the further works were stopped. According to the official plans, construction works will be resumed in 2013-2014 and the station will be opened by 2016. In fact, the construction of the station in the existing deep-level tunnel will require more time (about five years). Therefore, there will be built bypass tunnels, in which will be ride trains with passengers during construction works. The construction of "Suvorovskaya" station will be held in the existing tunnels of Ring Line. After opening of the station, bypass tunnels will be used for the night standing of trains and technical works.


Russos

"Stadion Spartak" ("Spartak Stadium", former name - "Volokolamskaya") is an unopened station on the Moscow Metro's Line 7 which is located under the former Tushino Airport. It was constructed in 1975 as part of the northern extension of the Krasnopresnensky radius but never opened.

Moscow's 1960s expansion plans called for a construction of a municipal housing district on the old Tushino Airfield, and the station was to serve it. However, the planned estate was never built and "Stadion Spartak" was left unfinished, though it is structurally complete. Attentive Metro travelers can spot the station out the window of the train between "Shchukinskaya" and "Tushinskaya", especially when a train is traveling in the opposite direction.

"Stadion Spartak" is a typical pillar-trispan "New Centipede" design with staircases at opposite ends (the vestibules were never built). It is illuminated by a few dim light bulbs and decorated only by signatures of the people who paid the empty carcass a visit. Even on the pathways there is no safety ditch under the tracks.

The plans for the station looked dim until recently, but since Tushino Field often holds large festivals and construction in Moscow has undergone a massive expansion in recent years, the station may enter service after all. Considering that "Stadion Spartak" is almost complete, it will only take a couple of months to bring it up to operating condition.

The construction of the station will be started after completion of the nearest Spartak Stadium, which will be built for FIFA World Cup 2018.

Wow! A excellent thread!

I have just returned from vacations and now I'm reading your material with great pleasure

I apologize for the little offtopic. Can you answer what's name of the music, which was used in this video row?

I remember that I've heard it earlier, but I can not remember its name

Lara, you are welcome!

This is a one of my favorite music compositions from the Soviet drama film "My Sweet and Tender Beast" (1978; director - Emil Loteanu), which is adapted from Anton Chekhov's novelette "A Hunting Accident" (1884). This wonderful music was written by outstanding Soviet composer (Moldavian by nationality) Yevgeny (Eugene) Doga specially for this film.

Here is original video:



I like to listen this melody, because I immediately think of those eyes


Excuse me too for this "lyrical digression" I'm some busy this week, but I'll come back to updates very soon!

Apart from trams we are getting a picture of Russia before communism that was not presented very well in our school education in "the west"! We were told everybody was a poor peasant living in a hut but here we see prosperous and advanced cities. No surprise I guess. What is interesting AlekseyVT is the number of streets, bridges etc that apparently still have communist names (Lenin, Soviet etc). In other former communist countries after the 1990s everybody was busy returning streets to their former pre-communist names or giving them new names!

Commuters are participating in a climbing-the-escalator adventure in Russia's deepest metro station. This looks like Washington DC (where escalators in the metro are usually out of service) but this is actually St Petersburg!

ST. PETERSBURG METRO

2011 - THE MOST SIGNIFICANT EVENTS:

In 2010 was opened 64th station of the St. Petersburg Metro - "Obvodny Kanal" ("Bypass Canal") of the Line 5. The vestibule was opened on December 30, 2010 in the uncompleted building of trade store "Ligov" of the "Adamant" Holding. The trade store itself (total square - 35700 sq.m.) was opened in September 2011. Thus, the construction of the whole complex was finally completed.

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).

On December 28, 2011 was opened 65th station of the St. Petersburg Metro - "Admiralteyskaya" ("Admiralty") of the Line 5. The history of its construction was very similar to the history of construction of the "Obvodny Kanal" ("Bypass Canal") station. Like "Obvodny Kanal", "Admiralteyskaya" was also deep-level "ghost" station of the Line 5 and its vestibule was also opened before New Year in the uncompleted building, which was built instead of old one.

"ADMIRALTEYSKAYA":

"Admiralteyskaya" ("Admiralty") is a station on the Frunzensko-Primorskaya Line 5 of the Saint Petersburg Metro. It's located at the intersection of the Little Marine street and Brick Lane, near the Admiralty Avenue and Admiralty building, in the Municipal Okrug #78, Central District. "Admiralteyskaya" is a most central Metro station of Saint Petersburg, the closest station to the Palace Square, Saint Isaac's Square and Senate Square. It planned to serve millions of tourists, including visitors of the famous Hermitage Museum.

Location of the station:

airpano

"Admiralteyskaya" was designed to relieve congestion at the "Nevsky Prospekt" ("Nevsky Avenue"; Line 2) and "Gostiny Dvor" ("Guest Court"; Line 3) stations, as well as to provide a more direct link to the Hermitage and other notable museums. However, the completion of the stations was hampered by the lack of funds and ongoing controversy over the placement of station's exit.

The construction of this station continued more than 14 years. When the construction of what was originally intended as the northern branch of the Line 5 began, the underground part of "Admiralteystkaya" was built, even as the location of the exit remained uncertain. The constructions of the underground part were ready by September 15, 1997, when were opened stations "Sadovaya" ("Garden") and "Chkalovskaya" ("Valery Chkalov"). "Admiralteyskaya" is located in the underground tunnel between these two stations. By 1997, most of the underground part was completed, even originally there was no platform of the central hall. 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 Line 4, the train passed the unfinished station without stopping, slowing down slightly while transversing it. However, in 2005, the construction resumed. Trains began to occasionally stop at this station in early morning hours to drop off workers.

The stations was hampered by the lack of funds and ongoing controversy over the placement of station's exit. 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. Originally it was planned to purchase living house of 19th century at the intersection of the Little Marine street and Brick Lane, to demolished it and to built vestibule at this place. However, it led to the judical problems with the owners of apartments in this house. In 2005-2006 they searched other sites for the construction of exit, but it was refused. 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 originally planned site of the apartment building at #1/4 on Brick Lane. 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 (in 1947 it became the first city building, which was restored after the Siege of Leningrad in 1941-1944). In June 2009, the issue was resolved in Metropolitan'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. The construction commenced once all the debris were cleared.

July 8, 2009. Demolition of building:


The facing of the underground part started in 2007. In August 2010 began mounting of TBM "Herrenknecht", which started to built escalator tunnel in December 2010.

It's interesting that in January 2011, for the first time in the history of Russian Metro construction, above the escalator tunnel was made large inflatable tent for the thermal insulation and soundproofing. This tent existed till March 2011, when it was severely damaged due to strong wind and snow.

The construction of the vestibule was started in August 2011. The station was opened on December 28, 2011. Its vestibule was opened in the uncompleted building. It's planned that reconstruction of the building will be completed this year, close to the original image.

In addition to be most central station in St. Petersburg, "Admiralteyskaya" have few other interesting features. It's a 300th Metro station, which was opened in Russia (Moscow have 185 Metro stations, St. Petersburg - 65, Novosibirsk and Nizhny Novgorod - 13, Samara - 9, Yekaterinburg - 8, Kazan - 7). If "Admiralteyskaya" was opened two days earlier, it also would be 500th Metro stations in post-Soviet states. However, Kyiv station "Vystavkovyi Tsentr" ("Exhibition Centre") was opened on December 27, 2011, one day prior the opening in St. Petersburg. Thus, "Admiralteyskaya" became 501th Metro station.

In addition, "Admiralteyskaya" became most deepest Metro station (depth - 86 meters) in Russia and second deepest station in post-Soviet states after Metro station "Arsenalna" ("Arsenal") in Kyiv (depth - 105.5 meters; opened on November 6, 1960). Nevertheless, some Russian officials and journalists announced that depth of "Admiralteyskaya" station is 110-120 meters, but these numbers have not been confirmed.

The list of the deepest Russian Metro stations. Almost all stations of this list are located in St. Petersburg Metro, which considered as the most deepest subway system in the world:
1) "Admiralteyskaya" ("Admiralty"), St. Petersburg (2011) - 86 m;
2) "Park Pobedy" ("Victory Park"), Moscow (2003) - 84 m;
3) "Komendatsky Prospekt" ("Commandant Avenue"), St. Petersburg (2005) - 75 m;
4) "Proletarskaya" ("Proletarian"), St. Petersburg (1981) - 72 m;
5) "Ploshchad Lenina" ("Lenin Square"), St. Petersburg (1958) - 71 m;
5) "Primorskaya" ("Maritime"), St. Petersburg (1979) - 71 m;
5) "Sadovaya" ("Garden"), St. Petersburg (1991) - 71 m;
8) "Chernyshevskaya" ("Nikolay Chernyshevsky"), St. Petersburg (1958) - 70 m;
9) "Prospekt Bolshevikov" ("Bolsheviks Avenue"), St. Petersburg (1985) - 68 m;
10) "Vyborgskaya" ("Vyborg"), St. Petersburg (1975) - 67 m;
10) "Ploshchad Muzhestva" ("Bravery Square"), St. Petersburg (1975) - 67 m;
10) "Chornaya Rechka" ("Black River"), St. Petersburg (1982) - 67 m;
10) "Pionerskaya" ("Pioneers"), St. Petersburg (1982) - 67 m.

Also, in the big escalator tunnel were installed escalators of E-75T models. Those escalators claimed to be world's subway deepest escalators (height - 68.7 m; length ~ 138 m). The old record belonged to the LT-1 escalators at the stations "Chernyshevskaya" and "Ploshchad Lenina" (1958; depth - 65.8 m; length - 131.6 m). However, these new unique escalators shown to be ineffective in the rush hours. It were stopped many times on the opening day and especially on December 31, when few hundreds people, who went to the Palace Square for participation in the New Year's celebrations, were forced to meet New Year on the stopped escalators.

"Admiralteyskaya" is a deep-level three-vaulted station of column-wall type. Due to difficulties with location in the historical centre, it was built with two escalator tunnels and intermediate corridor between them. The architect of the station was famous artist Alexander Konstantinov (1937-2008). His project of "Admiralteyskaya" station was ready even in 1997 and was adopted with some changes in 2006.

The main theme of decoration was emergence and development of Russian fleet in Imperial times, from the foundation of Admiralty by the Russian Emperor Peter the Great (1672-1725). The ground-level vestibule have ellipsoidal form and decorated in the style, similar to the style of decoration of the underground parts. The walls of vestibule are faced with Gazgan marble. The ceiling, which is supported by a row of massive black fluted columns, is decorated with lighted composition "Compass rose". This lighted composition is oriented to the cardinal. There is mosaic panel "Admiralty" (artist - Alexander Bystrov) over the big escalator tunnel (depth - 68.7 m).

The intermediate corridor between the big and small (depth - 15.2 m) escalator tunnels is 112-m long. This corridor is decorated with two mosaic panels - "Neva River" and "Neptune" (artist - Alexander Bystrov).

There is decorative stained-glass with clocks between the small escalator tunnel and central hall. The floor is paved with grey and red granite. It's decorated with three granite inlays "compass roses". There is mosaic panel "Foundation of Admiralty" in the end of central hall (artist - Alexander Bystrov). The track walls are lined with blue-gray marble. The doors on track walls are decorated with original lattices with images of anchors. The arcade of the station is faced with Gazgan marble of creamy golden tones. The arches are completed with black aluminum half-columns with the socles and capitals of polished brass. The walls between the half-columns are decorated with high reliefs with portraits of the famous Russian admirals and naval commanders - Fyodor Apraksin (1661-1728), Fyodor Ushakov (1744-1817), Fabian Gottlieb von Bellingshausen (1778-1852), Pavel Nakhimov (1802-1855), Stepan Makarov (1849-1904) and Ivan Grigorovich (1853-1930). The sculptors of high reliefs are Valentin Sveshnikov and Albert Charkin.

The station will eventually provide a transfer to the Line 3 station tentatively designated "Admiralteyskaya-2" (the construction of that station has not begun yet).
