Bulvar Rokossovskogo (Russian: Бульва́р Рокоссо́вского), previously Ulitsa Podbelskogo (Russian: У́лица Подбе́льского), is a Moscow Metro station in the Bogorodskoye District, Eastern Administrative Okrug, Moscow, Russia. It is on the Sokolnicheskaya Line, serving as its eastern terminus. The station was opened in 1990.[1]

History[edit]

Name[edit]

The station was originally named "Ulitsa Podbelskogo" after the Podbelskogo Street (itself named after Vadim Podbelsky), keeping its name even after the street was renamed in 1991 to Ivanteyevskaya Street. On 10 April 2014 Moscow City Commission on Names has announced plans to rename the station to "Bulvar Marshala Rokossovskogo",[2] after the Rokossovsky Boulevard located nearby (named itself after Konstantin Rokossovsky). On 8 July, the station was officially renamed to "Bulvar Rokossovskogo".[3]

Future plans[edit]

Rather than continuing the straight path of the Sokolnicheskaya Line to the northeast, Bulvar Rokossovskogo was built to the northwest of Cherkizovskaya, forming a right angle with the rest of the line. This would allow Bulvar Rokossovskogo to eventually become part of a planned second ring line around the city, at which time the Sokolnicheskaya Line could presumably be further extended in its original direction.

Beyond Bulvar Rokossovskogo are reversal sidings which are planned to become part of the future "Big Ring" line. A junction between Bulvar Rokossovskogo and Cherkizovskaya is used by southbound trains entering and leaving the Cherkizovo depot (№ 13), since the depot is directly connected only to the southbound tunnel.


Design[edit]

Station platform

Bulvar Rokossovskogo is a shallow column tri-vault station. The station was designed by architects Nina Aleshina and N. Samoylova and applied the following theme: ferroconcrete pillars faced with white marble; anodized aluminum arranged in geometric patterns on the walls and two identical entrance vestibules located on either side of Moscow's Circular Railway near the Otkrytoe Shosse.
