Metro, built by one person
• Metro, built by one person
City Lebedyan Lipetsk region is known for the fact that it is the largest in Eastern Europe for juice production plant, but not everyone knows that here lives and works, is perhaps the most unique metrostroevets Leonid Mulyarchik.
We went to visit Leonid your own eyes to look at the work he has done. Find it "underground" is not difficult. On the hill you can see the house, the staircase (on the coordination of the construction of which took nearly 2 years), the kiosk (the administration did not give permission for its opening because of the power lines above it), the gray door on the right - the very entrance to the subway.
The depth of "underground" - only 2 meters from the ground. Construction began in 1984. Leonid created a cooperative, where happily signed up 166 people, but knowing that the payment for the work is expected only after the subway will be built to pay dividends, all instantly abandoned the work. Recently, work has been slow and difficult, well, just think - all built by one person. Here is the entrance hall to the "station", where high ceilings and plaster walls of limestone.
A homemade cement mixer for mixing solution. Everywhere held working (12 V) and constant (220 volts) electricity. Generally, this metro has all the necessary documents and permits. In addition to the transport function it is supposed to hold water, sewer and fire hydrants for all residents of the area.
Go to the main tunnel. The construction of the vaults survive travel across the surface of a 60-ton truck (there is a conclusion of the expert committee). The trunk tunnel vault height of about 150 cm.
It is left in place for the construction of the wall of the mine from the neighbors house (they also want to spend the subway in your house).
Temperature seam and homemade shield prednaznaznachenny cementing vaults. All cement was purchased Leonid retirement, brick limestone burned here in the boiler room.
In the distance you can see the slaughter. Because on the surface at this point is a ravine, then it had to go deep into the ground. On average, 1 meter tunnel tunneling out one day, and another 3 days on the concreting of the arch.
A special mine for excavation. As soon as you passed the gully (there are still about 20 meters), it will be delivered to the lobby entrance.
Mining tunnel. Here, on a plan of the builder will have to move specially designed trolley for transportation of 3-4 passengers. They need to be fully automated - pressed a button, drive to the right place.
pass through the main tunnel of about 100 meters and turn left at the first technical tunnel. There is a pumping station which is pumping water from a well located 70 meters away. Hitched reed switches on the tube pump is switched on and off automatically. A little further away is visible boiler. This is a small boiler that can heat the entire house 4. Place a large boiler 20 homes left to the right.
And these stairs, you can descend directly from metrostroevtsy house in the boiler room. Conveniently, you know.
After another 20 meters on the main tunnel, you can see the flyover electrified, creating a lifting trolley with the ground surface. With the establishment of the mine, which I described above, the need for an overpass disappeared. Upstairs there is a garage.
On the other hand, the main tunnel, too, rests on the slaughter. Here, too, it left just about 30 meters and put the lobby. Left out auxiliary tunnel.
Left septic pit for lime burning.
With this construction of the tunnel began.
The arches are very low, the height of about one meter. Since he Leonid small stature, he more comfortable here than us.
Go back to the main entrance on the parallel tunnel. These are the requirements of fire safety. Here, too, the walls and ceilings are plastered. Leonid is an interesting idea - to invite young people here to club parties. Psychedelic party under the ground - it's cool. There's even a space for male and female toilet, washbasin and a bar.
And here he Leonid, we are inside the kiosks, which can be reached from the ground. On the TV image can be seen from the camcorder front of the entrance, everything is under control.
With the opening of the kiosk only got bad luck. In 90 years on top of electrical wires stretched, Leonid saw them stretch, but the stall while not planned. Now the security zone of power lines - 10 meters, within them can not be equipped with point of sale. Tomorrow he would go to the administration to address this issue.
Here's a he, Lebedyansky Metrostroy. Sponsors not only remains to hope that on their own, the main trunk tunnel to finish and put the trailer. And before you know and tourists will catch up.
Nearby, on the banks of the Don, you can see the homemade wheel lift. Leonid was still double-decked ship, but he recently sold it (accidentally found a buyer) to buy a Niva.
