Istanbul is rather busy building metros. See http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...=707284&page=2 for a map of the network as it should look in 2013.

Two brand-new lines are scheduled to appear. Otherwise some considerable expansions:

Feb 2010 - The M2 line will start to function as a singular line (instead of 3 seperate lines at the moment) from Sishane to A. Oto Sanayi. At the same time, Sanayi (not to be confused with A. Oto Sanayi) to Seyrantepe will start to operate as a seperate line. Only when there are soccer games at the as yet unfinished Seyrantepe Stadium will the line operate directly between Taksim and Seyrantepe.

May 2010 - M2 extended one stop northwards to Darüssafaka

Nov/Dec 2010 - M2 extended one stop northwards to Haciosman

2011? 2012? Southern extension M2 Sishane to Yenikapi completed

other lines:

2010? M1 extension Esenler - Bagcilar (- Kirazli)
2010? new line Kirazli - Olympic Stadium, with branch to Basak Konutlari
end 2011 new line Kadiköy - Kartal; indefinite later extension Kartal - Kaynarca
2012 M1 extension Aksaray - Yenikapi
2013 Marmaray tunnel under the Bosporus from Yenikapi to Sögütlücesme, combined with modernized suburban railways

The Contract with the Contracting Joint Venture AEGEK – IMPREGILO – ANSALDO T.S.F – SELI – ANSALDOBREDA was signed on April 7th 2006 and the construction of the Project commenced at the end of June 2006. The line is under constraction and moving quite fast...although many of the stations have a big archeological risk, so thessaloniki metro will become an underground museum!!! You can check the progress at the attiko metro official webpage (is the same company that constracted and works athens metro)

Dubai hopes to open in Feb2010 a few extra stations on the first line that was opened a few months ago.
And in the Green line should open the end of 2010,
And the Purple line should open in 2012...

Well if there are still enough customers with money.

Also Malaga plans to open it's first 2 lines in 2011:
