The day of formation of metro in Saint-Petersburg
15 Ноября 2018
I cordially congratulate the staff of sue "Petersburg metro" on the 63rd anniversary of the opening of the metro in the Northern capital!
The first line of the Leningrad metro began its work on November 15, 1955. The history of the world's deepest "subway" began with the opening of the red line from the metro station "Avtovo" to the station "Ploshchad Vosstaniya". This underground line connected the city center with the main railway stations and working outskirts of the city.
The first extension of the metro happened three years after its opening, in 1958, when the first (later Kirovsko-Vyborgskaya) line passed under the Neva river to the Finland station.
Today St. Petersburg metro is one of the most developed metro networks in the world. St. Petersburg residents and visitors can use five lines with a total length of more than 100 kilometers. New stations are being actively built, the heritage of the Soviet era is being modernized. In this difficult matter, all possible assistance to the metro is provided by our company, which has been producing equipment for the metro for more than a quarter of a century.
Please accept my sincere congratulations and wishes of professional success, further development and prosperity!Sincerely yours, General Director G. S. Abushenko
