I couldn't find how will two lines connect at Obelya.
Will it be in level? Will the lines maybe be connected so the trains could actually drive from one to the other line?
So if they are connected, is there only one depot?

Line 1 & 2 will be only virtually separate. In fact they will operate as one long line from Tsarigradsko shose to James Bourchier. Metropoliten, the municipal company operating the metro, announced there will be two routes: one from Tsarigradsko shose to James Bourchier, and another from Slivnitsa to Mladost 1.

The Sv. Naum station will now be European Union Station.

The citizens of Sofia are eager to see the new line opened with or without the renaming of the Sv. Naum Station (Which was to be named after Saint Naum of Preslav, a Bulgarian medieval scholar and a missionary). The expected daily ridership is to rise up to 450k.

The next step is the branch to Sofia Airport (SOF, LBSF) and the two stations towards Mladost IV residential district.

And this is the second batch of the 18 new trainsets hauled by a BDZ-TP Class 44 electric locomotive:

М2 Metro Sofia

I present you with some great pictures made by our member Difian. Line M2 (11 stations, 11 km) is due to open on 30.8.2012, increasing the daily users of the system from about 250k today, to some 500k.

Station Lomsko Shose:

Refreshing designs




What's the rationale to enclosing the elevated segment and equipping it with louvres?

Interesting question, didn't come to think about it.
Maybe elements?

What do you mean by elements?

Any chance of sharing a full-on shot/picture of the translucent siding/plexiglass? Anybody know why transparent siding wasn't chosen?

Nice going, Sofia not choosing platform edge doors

Lolwhat

Platform edge/screen doors and gates bring numerous safety benefits. The costs of these doors and gates drop every year (due to new technology and economies of scale in production).

I'm sure Sofia Metro will consider these in the future (especially if they consider line automation or full-driverless operation in the future).

Rain, snow, wind... both trains and track will be better preserved, and no weather condition is gonna affect the system functionality.
And louvres would be for ventilation maybe (or shading, depending on a kind of louvre)...
Also, translucent vs transparent might have some point in terms of greenhouse effect.

Just assuming...

Platform edge doors would be a blight on Sofia's new, appealing stations.

There aren't any plans for PSD in our metro system.
