So is the second ring line going ahead? Good news if it is.

Interesting that it will have platform screen doors, and that the stations will only differ in colour.

^ Only the transfer stations. If you look carefully, you'll see that the color accent of the station matches the color of the respective transfer line.

The direction of the tunnel is pretty strange btw. - the detour to Presnyaya is in reality even bigger than suggested in the metro map, which is even more strange when you consider that Mnevniki, Presnyaya and Shelepikha are only supposed to open when a huge business center above them is built. So, while offering new connections, the travel times aren't going to be optimal, sort of comparable to the long ride on a short air-distance between Kievskiy Vokzal and Vystavochnaya.

Third Interchange Contour is not analog of Ring Line. There planned to be four lines between the Moscow outskirts, which will not be built across Central District of Moscow. As it was explained to me, those four lines will be cross in the form of symbol # The trains will be run from one end to another, via stations of the ring of Third Interchange Contour.

A bit like the London Overground, then? The track forms an orbit but no trains will actually make a full orbit...

And are the stations being built without anything between them? What is the point in that?

The main problem of the Moscow Metro is that people are force to use central transfer stations (Ring Line + stations inside Ring Line) for travel from one outskirt to another (for example, from Southern to the Eastern Administrative Districts of Moscow). As result, central stations became too overcrowded. Therefore, the idea to built lines between outskirts which will no pass in Central Administrative Distrcit (see red lines on the Map). The routes from one outskirt to another will be pass via some stations of the future Third Interchange Countour, not along whole ring.

@ AlexeyVT / KVentz: thanks for the additional maps. Unfortunately, they show what I meant - the new lines close to the center don't use the fastest directions because of different constraints - on the yellow line it's the wish for additional connections for the line and Moscow city, on the line between Savelovskaya and Vystavochnaya it's the business center that might or might not get built.

The main advantage of the Moscow Metro compared with other Metro networks has always been the high speed between different points, unfortunately even today one can already see that all those curves drastically decrease this speed (main examples would be Mendeleevskaya-Chekhovskaya via Tsvetnoy Bulvar and the already mentioned extension of the Blue line to Meshdunarodnaya). For me it looks like the Metro is kind of mis-used here to cater for local needs for the price of slower network speed. A direct connection between khoroshevskaya and Vystovochnaya would easily save 10 Minutes, while Mevniki could be later on (when the business center was actually built) by a line continuing to Krylatskoye.

Okay, your explanation has helped make this map below make a lot more sense. Yet at the same time though, the map here shows that a true second ring line is planned for the future, as an expansion of the existing Line 11. Now my second question, will the first part of "Third Interchange corridor" be referred to as Line 12 or Line 13?
