Works for metro station ”Admiralteyskaya”

11 votos
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. 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 site of the apartment building at #1/4 on Kirpichny Alley. The building was to be torn down so that a vestibule could be built in its place.
