HistoryEdit

The city government decided to extend the line to Stolbovo in February 2016; an unexpected decision given that the city initially planned to extend the line only to Filatov Lug. The initial cost of the line was about 45 billion rubles.[4] In July 2017, the city government confirmed that the extension would move forward, allowing construction to continue.[5]

In March 2017, the city began clearing space around the planned station to accommodate the construction.[6]

In 2022, the city plans to complete a tram line that connects the station to the town of Troitsk.[3]

Design and LayoutEdit

The station has a single lobby with entrances on either side of the highway. Passengers is access the station via elevated walkways over the highway.[3]
