Hi, I have two questions:

- Are line 1 and line 2 refurbished since the opening of the metro in 1967?

- Line 3 started construction or it is in planning stage?

Thank you.

Every month, there are minor refurbishment works in those lines like changing the old tracks, painting works, corrosion preventing works and etc.

Line 3 is already under construction, first two stations will be opened in 2014.

The stations look a lot better than new ones in Moscow (those ones are really ugly and tacky).

Moscow should import designers from Baku!

Works on construction of the remaining part of green line between "Xətai" and "H.Aslanov-2" stations have been started (Y-14, Y-15, Y-16). Currently, the future site of Y-15 station is being prepared for placing the TBM-s.

Four TBM-s and two companies will be working at the same time. 2 TBM-s will go from Y-15 to "Xətai" station (French "Bouygues" company) and other 2 will go from Y-15 to "H.Aslanov-2" station (Ukrainian "Interbudmontaj" company).

This train model called Oka (81-760/761), maden by Moscow-based Metrovagonmash. But unlike this train, Baku metro train will have the red livery:



Unfortunately, all trains are shipped back to Russia, but recently Baku city hall signed a deal with Metrovagonmash again, so this model will be used on the new line

Baku's colors are better than Moscow's.
And Baku has perfect stations. I like them too much. But i can't say the same thing for trains. Why they always choosing Russian trains? Most of the European or Asian made trains have a better and more modern look than Russian trains.

Because it's much cheaper than the European trains. It's a post-Soviet heritage. Not every post-Soviet city with the metro system have enough money to buy trains from Alstom or Siemens. That depends on the economy of country and profits from users

Baku is an insanely rich city, though, with all of those petrodollars flowing in by the barrel.
