Lansky station crossover is a railway bridge across Serdobolskaya street. On either side of it, on high embankments, there are the station platforms of Lansky railway station. The bridge was opened in 1869[1] and the first train proceeded through it on July 3 [O.S. June 22] 1869.[2] The bridge was expanded in 1926.

Station access[edit]

The platform of Lanskaya station, from the Saint Petersburg direction, is located on the embankment. Access to it is obtained from under the bridge.

Memoirs[edit]

The bridge is mentioned in the memoir "March of 1917" by the novelist Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn.[3]
