The ring line can offer passengers a free and ultra-fast Wi-Fi access to the Internet thanks to fiber-optic cables running throughout the whole line.


«IMG_7728.JPG» на Яндекс.Фотках

For now, only Circular line (5) provides free Internet access but Moscow authorities are planning to cover all the lines. Hotspots are installed on cars, so you can be online all the time as long as you are onboard.

I tested it myself during rush hour and I was greatly satisfied with the results: with the train overcrowded, you can comfortably play online movies. Mobile operators don't usually cope with the traffic during rush hour.

And I have to say this is a 100% free access, with no problems like I've faced often times abroad, both in Europe and Asia, when they tell you there's free access but you have to send an sms, get the password, put it in etc etc etc.

You don't have to wait anything in Moscow metro, just turn your Wi-Fi on and enjoy!

Lomonosovsky prospekt station construction site.




Again a drilling machine appeared some days ago. I don't understand what it may drill as even the station is almost complete.



At the northern side of the plot they've assembled a coverage.



Some general views.









At the passage near bus terminal.



At the main trunk of Lomonosovsky avenue.

Yesterday there was an accident in tunnels of Zamoskvoretskaya line between Avtozavidskaya and Kolomenskaya stations. The pilling works caused tunnel to move. The tunnel itself survived with no injuries reported. According to city officials, the pilling is presumably used for unauthorized construction of light construction segments. Happened at approximately 15:30 MST, services restored by 19:00 MST. Link:

Well, the second time railway managed to pierce the tunnel of Moscow metro. What an irony.

An update over the tunnel accident. The pilling works were for catenary structures for RZD's Moscow Small rail ring electrification project:



And this is how it looks like in tunnel:

dimlys1994, just a small NB - that's not cable but wire, or, if taken complexly, a catenary.
Word 'cable' means that their is a cover around the wire, which definitely not a case for railway electrification, because it would make current collection impossible.

Delovoy center station scheduled to open on February, 1st.



Turnstiles right beside the station itself that you can see but can't reach. A Worker confirmed me today the station would open on Feb, 1.



The situation outside.



The crane was carrying something hot into the pit.







The station's own entrance will be located near Federation Complex.
