Spartak Metro Station

Spartak, previously named Volokolamskaya while on conservation, is a station on the Moscow Metro's Tagansko-Krasnopresnenskaya Line, located under the Tushino airfield. It was constructed in 1975 as part of the northern extension of the Krasnopresnensky radius but only opened on 27 August 2014. The station serves the newly built Otkrytie Arena Stadium, the home ground of FC Spartak Moscow.

 

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 the station was left unfinished, though it is structurally complete. Metro travellers could spot the station out the window of the train between Shchukinskaya and Tushinskaya, especially when it was illuminated by a train travelling in the opposite direction.

Spartak is a typical pillar-trispan "Novaya Sorokonozhka" (Новая Сороконожка, new centipede) design with staircases at opposite ends. The vestibules were built only by 2014, with the northern one being above-ground and the southern one underground.
