At some old stations new lightning is being installed: they want to replace old bulbs with energy-saving fluorescent tubes and bulbs.

Really nice metro. A bit hard for a foreigner to get around and know what station you are at (can't see the name a lot of times!), but we managed.

Some stations are being equipped with detectors to prevent carrying weapons in metro. I wonder how they will manage to check it in rush hours when passenger flow may reach 50 000 persons an hour.

This is not for screening 50 000 people, it is for selective screening of whoever police would find suspicious...

Because the future site of its location (at the crossing of Mitinskaya street and Pyatnitskoe Highway) is more convenient for residents and transport communication. To construct this station according typical technology, it's need to move the site of its future location. With the current location, there are only two options of construction - to build station on a curve or to use curves of the rails.

Actually, tunnels beyond Mitino was being constructed as a track to depot, and decision to put a station on it was taken only recently, when tunnels around its place have been already constructed, and they can be connected only by curve.

Constructed tunnels are green:

Foreign companies seek participation in Moscow Metro construction

A number of large foreign companies have filed bids to participate in the construction of new metro stations in Moscow, the Russian capital's transport department said on Wednesday.

Earlier Moscow authorities said foreign firms could gain contracts to construct metro stations and roads in the city. Mayor Sergey Sobyanin has tasked officials with speeding up construction, with some 53 billion rubles ($2.2bn) allocated for the purpose in 2011. Over 70km (43 miles) of metro lines are to be built by 2015.

"There are many applications from different companies, including "Siemens" and "Hyundai". They are being considered," a spokeswoman for the department said, adding that the company that will build new metro sections will be chosen after a tender.

"Siemens" official Rolf Epstein told journalists on Wednesday that his company could supply some 100 new Inspiro trains to Moscow.

MOSCOW, May 25 (RIA Novosti)

P.S. I'm glad to see Sapsan and Aeroexpress trains from "Siemens", but Inspiro look very crappy for Moscow Metro. Moscow isn't Warsaw!!!

If Hyundai is chosen, then Moscow could end up buying trains similar to those of the Almaty Metro.

Wow! I must say I am impressed by the new Moscow metro stations! They are not lowering quality from the old classy metro stations. Well done!
