Get it? ] and [ represents transitions, as many tunnels have small walls/slopes a little before the beginning of actual tunnel:

Here you can see some slopes to the right and the left:

No, Komsomolskaya, Ploshchad Chekistov, Profsoyuznaya, Teatr Yuonogo Zritela, Yelshanka are underground. Pionerskaya and Pl(oshchad) Chekistov are have Right of Way A (they are fully fenced from auto and pedestrian traffic), but they are surfaced. The rest of the line are surface and have RoW B (it runs separately from roads and walkways, but have small amount of roads and walkways crossing it under regulation of traffic lights)

RZD launches World Cup regional rail projects
11 Aug 2015



RUSSIA: Russian Railways is making preparation to enhance regional passenger services around Volgograd and Samara ahead of the 2018 FIFA football World Cup, during which both cities will host matches.

A rail link is to be completed by the end of 2017 to serve the international airport in Volgograd, RZD President Vladimir Yakunin told the TASS news agency on August 1. A railway runs close to the airport perimeter but currently there is no station to serve the airport. Shuttle services to and from the city’s main station would be provided by Aeroexpress, he said, despite the decision by the dedicated airport link operator earlier this year to pull out of regional cities and focus its business on Moscow in a dispute over subsidy payments.

The airport link is to be prioritised to meet demand from visiting football fans for the World Cup, but Yakunin said that work had already begun on a larger project to modernise the 100 route-km suburban network which runs along the banks of the Volga. Work is underway to electrify the main line between Saratov and Rostov-na-Donu, which passes through Volgograd

The bus may be launched in the regional capital of Volgograd by the 2018 FIFA World Cup, which is hosted by Russia, according to the publication.

The bus has several advantages over other driverless buses, such as the Ligier EZ-10 autonomous electric vehicle, currently used in Switzerland, as well as vehicles used in the Netherlands' Wageningen, and the Greek town of Trikala, Volgabus Director Alexei Bakulin said.
