Station "Devyatkino" (until 1992 - "Komsomolskaya", project name "Kalininskaya") is located in the area of ​​the former stopping point Devyatkino, at the intersection of the Kirovsko-Vyborgskaya line of the Petersburg metro with the Priozersky railway direction.

The station project developed by Lengiprotrans implements the principle of a single transfer platform between the metro and the railway. It became the second station of this type in Leningrad after the Kupchino station. Unlike the latter, Devyatkino is designed with common metro and railway platforms, which creates maximum convenience for passengers when transferring.

Devyatkino is a zone-type station. This scheme was first used in the USSR. It received wide coverage: it was published in the methodological instructions of "Kievgiprotrans", in the journal "Transport Construction" No. 2 for 1976 and distributed as a textbook at the Belarusian Institute of Railway Engineers.

At the end of 1978, the Devyatkino station was opened.
