Recently some additional schemes related to underground space use should be added to the General Plan of Saint Petersburg.

Besides common principles of horizontal zoning it is important to take into consideration its vertical zoning as well. «Vertical zoning» should be, first of all, based on natural and technology-related geological conditions.  

Possible functional use of underground space is quite determined at the moment (engineering, transport, social, production).  It is closely related to functional zoning of a day surface of the city.
