LVIV | Public Transport

This tread is about public transport in Lviv. Map from urbanrail.net:

Contruction was started in 2008 and planned to open in 2011. But all works were put on hold after year. This January European Bank for Reconstruction and Development agreed for loan, but because of situation... Nevertheless some tram sections were built:

Rumour has is it, that work started around 1989 for a fast-tram tunnel with three stations, similar to Wolgograd e. g.. Never found out if this true or if there even have been works carried out.

Kind regards

Actually, back in late 80s there was an attempt to build rapid tram (LRT) with underground section. Here is the retrospective of project by its head, R. Pavlyk, but unfortunately, its in Ukrainian only.
Quick summary: by the end of the project (due to late 80s economical collapse of the USSR) one vertical tunnel was completed, in palats Pototskih backyard, which was connected by 400 mm pipes to compresor station build in Tram depo #2. Also, surface part of the route was built, which now acts as southern half of tram route #3.
After cancellation of project in early 90s (both due financial problems, and political games) all excavations were refilled.
