Ulitsa Podbelskogo Metro station on Sokolnicheskaya line of Moscow metro will be renamed.

      The corresponding decision was taken by City Interdepartmental Committee for the Naming of territorial units, streets, metro stations, organizations and other Moscow facilities. The station will be renamed to Bulvar Rokossovskogo.

      According to the Deputy Mayor for Social Development Leonid Pechatnikov, this decision was taken due to the fact that on the surface there is no such street anymore and the metro station is changing its functional status because of joining the transport interchange.

      Ulitsa Podbelskogo  is a Moscow Metro station in the Bogorodskoye District, Eastern Administrative Okrug, Moscow, Russia. It is on the Sokolnicheskaya Line, serving as its eastern terminus. The station was opened in 1990.

      The station was named after the Podbelskogo Street, keeping its original name even after the street was renamed in 1991. At the end of the station is a bust of Vadim Podbelsky, after whom the street was named.

      Rather than continuing the straight path of the Sokolnicheskaya Line to the northeast, Ulitsa Podbelskogo was built to the northwest of Cherkizovskaya, forming a right angle with the rest of the line. This would allow Ulitsa Podbelskogo to eventually become part of a planned second ring line around the city, at which time the Sokolnicheskaya Line could presumably be further extended in its original direction.

      Beyond Ulitsa Podbelskogo are reversal sidings which are planned to become part of the future "Big Ring" line. A junction between Ulitsa Podbelskogo and Cherkizovskaya is used by southbound trains entering and leaving the Cherkizovo depot ( 13), since the depot is directly connected only to the southbound tunnel.

      On 10 April 2014 Moscow City Commission on Names has announced plans to rename the station to "Bulvar Marshala Rokossovskogo".

      Ulitsa Podbelskogo is a shallow column tri-vault station. The station was designed by architects Nina Aleshina and N. Samoilova and applied the following theme: ferroconcrete pillars faced with white marble; anodized aluminum arranged in geometric patterns on the walls and two identical entrance vestibules located on either side of Moscow's Circular Railway near the Otkrytoe Shosse.
