Reconstruction of the Baltiysky railway station

Реконструкция Балтийского вокзала

The Baltiysky railway station in St. Petersburg was built in the 1850s after the Eastern Station in Paris. A suburban direction passes through the station, connecting the city with such popular places as Peterhof, Oranienbaum, Gatchina. In 1970–1980 due to the closure of the Varshavsky railway station, the Baltiysky railway station took over trains on the Gatchina — Luga direction.

In the 2000s, in preparation for the celebration of the 300th anniversary of St. Petersburg, Lengiprotrans engineers developed a project for the overhaul of the Baltiysky railway station. The suburban passenger pavilion of the station was completely restored, the office and public premises of the wing, right and left wings were redesigned. One of the tasks was to recreate the original image of the object as fully as possible and restore the historical interiors.

The station has turnstiles for automatic ticket control. The premises of the station are equipped with fire-prevention systems: automatic alarm, warning system, fire-fighting water supply.

The project for the modernization of the station complex provided for the construction of a terminal for a high-speed train to Pulkovo airport. This would make it possible to get to the airport bypassing traffic jams in the area of ​​Moskovsky Prospekt. However, it was decided to build a high-speed train from the Vitebsk railway station.
