Characteristics of the facility:

Description: “Sportivnaya” is a unique one-vault two-story deep metro station engineered for operating 4 trains on 2 lines simultaneous.  Two floors of the station on the top of the other joined by two groups of 3 escalators.

Such a structure was the first in the world to be implemented in Saint Petersburg, and it was designed by local specialists. Two-story solution was a result of decision to join two stations in one, the future interchange hub for Line 3 and the future Circle Line. The station began operating in 1997.
The metro station “Sportivnaya” has two exits on opposite sides of the river. Both halls are situated above the ground and connected to the surface by stairs.  The hall on the Basil island was constructed in 2015, when the second exit began operating.
