For now, there is no big necessary in this escalator gallery. I don't think that city officials will spend a money for its reconstruction (it will be quite unprofitable project). Also, problem with landslides at the Sparrow Hills remains actual.

Lemon osprey prospect station construction site.

As I've already said, they're finishing it at a frantic pace. The new entrances are appearing, and being built very quickly. Just like they do it in China!




























22 .12. 2016.

So far, this year they've opened 5 stations of traditional metro + 31 stations of MCC. If they are able to open this part of line 8, they'll set a post-Soviet record, I guess.

No "of course" about it. The US doesn't export crappy stuff because it can't compete at the low-end of the market. Where the heck did this idea come from? Someone sell you tile claiming it was from the US? The last time I saw bad tiles in the US they were 50+ years old.

Those plastic panels aren't bad quality. Quite good, actually. They just don't fit the place, horribly. And awful color makes it even worse. Panels themselves aren't a problem, the choice to use them is. And word "cheap" was probably comparing them to classic Moscow Metro interiors of marble and granite, not with similar Chinese panels, of course.
Chill down, he is just frustrated. I understand him well, I use Yugo-Zapadnaya station almost every day and it became truly disgusting after reconstruction.

No offense to the Europeans, but I personally think that décor fit the Germans better.

Agreed that it doesn't really fit in with the Stalinist/Soviet architecture of*most of the rest of the Metro, though...

We're speaking of this. The station is quite simple so there was no need to make a palace of it anyway, some simple and cheap ceramogranite could do the job. Or anything, really. But this… It doesn't even fit common sense.

Although this station is more or less ready, it's unlikely that all three stations of the Solntsevsky Radius will be opened before New Year. More likely, they will be opened in the beginning of 2017.

Frunzenskaya station has reopened following renovations. Three old escalators were replaced with four new ones.

They're working too fast to get everthing done in time: that's a day prior to the opening

do not spread misinformation - the opening is not in 2016. The fact that they let the major ride a test train is nothing. In fact, the planned date for these stations is January 2017, presumably 2 weeks from now.
