Construction underway on new Dnipro Metro stations

Construction of the three new stations for
Dnipro Metro is underway. Excavation and engineering works of the 4km extension
to the city’s metro line were initiated in 2016.

The three new stations (Teatralna, Tsentralna and Muzeina) designed by Zaha Hadid Architects will connect the residents, businesses, cultural and academic institutions in Dnipro’s eastern districts with the city centre and the Dnipro-Holovnyi railway terminus.

Reducing traffic congestion in central
Dnipro, the metro line extension will also enable the parks, beaches and
recreational facilities on the banks of the Dnipro River in the east of the
city to be easily accessed from the city centre.

The city of Dnipro has a long history as a
centre of excellence in engineering, metallurgy and manufacturing. These rich
traditions are echoed in the welded steel entrance pavilions of the city’s new
metro stations.

Comprising a family of thin structural shells
designed to be constructed in recycled steel from Dnipro’s local foundries, the
pavilions’ sculpted forms showcase the city’s expertise in steel craftsmanship.
Each entrance pavilion is situated within a new public plaza and provides an
easily recognisable landmark indicating access to the city’s metro.

The design of the ticket halls is unique to
each station while the interior concourses, corridors and platforms share a
cohesive formal and spatial logic that gives the Dnipro Metro a strong
identity.

Defined by concepts of intuitive navigation,
the interiors are designed to orientate and direct passengers through each
station while enhancing their experience to ensure safe, comfortable and
enjoyable transport across the city.

The three new deep level stations of the
Dnipro Metro line extension are integral to the city’s ongoing programme to
upgrade its transport network. Passenger services to the three stations are
planned to begin in 2025.
