The station Bypass Canal the Petersburg metro

In the May trip to the northern capital of one of the items was a visit to the station "Bypass Canal", which opened on December 30, 2010. Already during the construction of this station is going to be a very interesting and very uncommon in the Petersburg metro. Well, the way it came out. In my opinion, at the moment this is the best metro station in St. Petersburg. Many thanks to the architects for this unusual project.

"The underground hall was built by the architects BA Podolsky and PV Malmalaeva (St. Petersburg Department Gipron RAS) in the style of industrial architecture. Both the lobby and the sloping tunnel with escalators are the elements of a single composition. The walls are decorated aprons with glass-panel panorama bypass channel — such as it was at the end of XIX century. On the one hand — the right bank embankment, on the other hand — the left one. The total length of 360 meters of track, which is not mortgaged any place under advertising "- that's what wikipedia says about this station.

My reports from the construction of the station:
Herrenknecht TBM and oblique stroke station "Bypass canal."

2. Noses associated with this interesting story. Ground station lobby is located at the intersection of Prospect and Ligovskij Obvodny channel. Metro Hall is located on the site of the demolished market (former cinema "north" Ligovsky, 153) and an 8-story building both — built in 1914. Cinema building was part of the unrealized project copyright 1911, on which was to be completed by leaving Ligovskiy prospect for the Bypass canal two high dominants, on the left and right of the axis of the prospectus, the bypass channel. First of cinema building "North" (before the revolution — "Nord") was considered an object of cultural heritage, but in August 2004 KGIOP excluded him from the list of monuments.

Thus, the lobby is built into the new building complex with preservation of urban planning ideas of 1911. For this it was necessary to demolish the former cinema "North" and make out an 8-storey building, as "Metrostroy" could not guarantee the safety of the latter during construction.
