SYSTRA to carry out feasibility studies for extensions to the Bakou metro (Azerbaijan)

As head of a consortium including, amongst others, MottMacDonald Prague (Czech Republic) and SAMAN (Korea), SYSTRA S.A. has won an international call for tenders launched by the Bakou Metro to draw up designs for the future metro network.

The study phase will include a survey about the urban mobility of public transport users and the development of a model for traffic forecasting. This will enable a plan to be drawn up for the development of the Bakou metro, which will involve extending the two existing lines and creating two new lines.

The consortium will then carry out the studies required for preparation of the planned construction projects, namely a study of the subsurface of the city, preliminary designs for the tunnels and stations, the choice of transport systems and of all the principles for operation and handling of passenger flows which are necessary to run a modern metro system.

The award of this contract is recognition of SYSTRA’s expertise in modernising and developing metro systems from the former Soviet era.

Once completed, the network could cover an additional 60 kilometres and include 50 new stations. This landmark project reflects the wishes of the President of Azerbaijan to launch a major urban development scheme in the country’s capital, Bakou.

SYSTRA is continuing to strengthen its presence in the country, following on from its involvement at the beginning of the year in the renovation of the railway network in Azerbaijan, through a programme financed by the Asian Development Bank.

I wish I could say I like those new stations. Certainly a lot of efforts was put in to make them appear... erm... shiny... However, too much bling bling kitsch for me

According to Baku Metro Authority new trains from France will run in new built subway stations in new lines. At the same time the 3-rd line of Baku subway is under construction and will be prolonged until to the station "Avtovagzal" near to the newly built bus terminal.

Probably some new planed station will be with side platforms. The main plan is to expand 40 new stations all over Baku Metro City. One station per year will be constructed. Already new equipment TBM (Shown below) bought from Robbins EPB for this purpose. Which will help easily to achieve the goal. So we hope some new stations will be with side platforms.

I agree it is just pictures but one day they can be reality.

Because they are cheap but I personally do not like them.
