World's deepest metro station to be in Russia

A new subway station, the world’s deepest, will be unveiled in downtown St. Petersburg, authorities said.

The Admiralteiskaya station lies over 100 m below the surface. Its opening Wednesday will decrease the load on other metro stations in the city, the northwest Russian city's administration reported. A total of 10.2 billion rubles ($325 mln) has been allocated from the city budget to the construction of stations and tunnels in 2011.
