The Committee on Urban Planning and Architecture has published assignments for the preparation of a planning project for the Krasnoselsko-Kalininskaya and Circle metro lines. We are talking about the northern areas.
The documents were published yesterday. In the case of the Krasnoselsko-Kalininskaya line, the assignment concerns the section from the Obvodny Canal – 2 station to the Polyustrovsky Prospekt 1 station, it passes under the Neva, its length is almost 7 km. Proposals from interested parties are expected until the end of February 2024, the project itself – by the summer of 2025.
Let us remind you that the first section of the Krasnoselsko-Kalininskaya line “Kazakovskaya” – “Putilovskaya” is currently under construction. Despite all the difficulties, Smolny expects to commission it in 2024. At the same time, the design of the southwestern section is underway – up to Sosnovaya Polyana, not everything is going smoothly there either, the designer Metrogiprotrans is afraid of quicksand on the line’s path. The same company is designing the section from Putilovskaya to the Obvodny Canal – 2 station, and it has acquired unusual assistants in this process. Accordingly, the next section will be the Obvodny Canal – 2 (Karetnaya) – Polyustrovsky avenue – 1″. According to Smolny’s plans, its part up to the Suvorovskaya-1 station should be built in 2030, and up to Piskarevsky Prospekt 1 – in 2033.
At the same time, an assignment was issued for a planning project for the north-eastern section of the Circle Line – from the Ploshchad Kalinina station to the Ladozhskaya-2 station. Its length 4.47 kmthroughput – 41 thousand people per hour. The deadlines for preparing documentation are the same.
This section intersects with the Krasnoselsko-Kalininskaya line precisely at Polyustrovsky Prospekt – 1/2, its commissioning is scheduled for 2039.
Earlier it became known that the site of the former PTMZ was going to be used as a depot specifically for the Circle Line. The latest plan assumes that it will be built from the Lesnaya-2 station clockwise in 2037–2045. Read about what the St. Petersburg metro construction industry is doing now on Fontanka.
