Line 10: Maryina Roshcha - Petrovsko-Razumovskaya - Seligerskaya extension is u/c, but many problems occur and it is rumored that one or two stations (of six new total) may be left unfinished and constructed some time later; official plans state 2014 as completion time for this project.
Line 2: Alma-Atinskaya is u/c and will probably open also at the end of the year. Tekhnopark is currently only in plans.
Line 7 (not 9): correct, Zhulebino and Lermontovskiy Prospekt construction is underway, also there are pland to finish the construction and open the station Spartak which has been constructed in the 70s without entrances and never opened.
Line L1: extension to Bitsevskiy Park is currently being constructed and is set to open in 2014, no official plans to extend south to Novokuryanovo exist.
"Line 13": the Solntsevskaya Line is now a part of a proposed Solntsevsko-Kalininskaya Line, which will incorporate the existing Kalininskaya Line, pass through the center of the city, the International Business Center, Park Pobedy station and the Ramenki District and then head for the Solntsevo District. Currently preparations for IBC - Park Pobedy - Ramenki section construction are underway.
Line 8: no plans for extending Kalininskaya Line to Mitino District exist, its fate is described in the previous paragraph.
Line 6: nothing on Yakimanka station is mentioned in the official plans. Extension to Chelobityevo and possibly Mytishchi on the northern part of the line will probably start soon.
Line 5: Suvorovskaya station is u/c, but the progress is quite slow, considering the difficulty of constructing a deep-level station on an operating line.
Yeah, sorry,i didn't realize it was outdated. Thanks a lot for the update.

Why? Why would they put a depot all the way down there? That doesn't make any sense.

Butovskaya Line doesn't have its own depot even though it's been operating for almost nine years already. The line doesn't even have any basic maintenance facilities in any reverse sidings, and new sidings on the u/c Lesoparkovaya station which would house such facilities have been omitted from the project and won't be constructed (some land property issues, I think). This created difficulties as trains have to go all the way from Varshavskoye depot to the line, and even though I'm not familiar with their exact path, I suppose it's not that easy: take a look at this map. Same thing now happens on Arbatsko-Porkovskaya Line, where some trains are sent to the line from Fili depot, but there already is a new depot u/c in Mitino and also the layout of tracks makes it much easier for trains to pass through Filiovskaya Line to Arbatsko-Pokrovskaya Line. Okay, so, basically, the railway loop in Novokuryanovo would make a good place for a small depot which would make many problems with Butovskaya Line go away.

Usually it's the dense existing development and sanitation law. Ther are also a number of secondary benefits - e.g. no heating in cars, no heating on stations, no snow plugs (depots are cleared by regular work-trains with a snow-plug-addon)

Lomonosovsky station construction site.

Car traffic has been tremendously restricted there, yet jams didn't get worse.

Why do you link to that map? None of those lines is a trolleybus BRT (or Trolleybus Rapid Transit, whatever that is).

BRT means Bus Rapid Transit. It's a term applied to a variety of public transportation systems using buses to provide faster, more efficient service than an ordinary bus line. Often this is achieved by making improvements to existing infrastructure, vehicles and scheduling.

In reality, there is no complete system of bus/trolleybus rapid transit system in Moscow. The new Mayor is trying to set up special lanes for buses on existing roads. However, practically car drivers tended to ignores these signs. This is a problem of the Russian mentality.

Delhi set up a BRT but then the country's Supreme Court ruled that BRT is illegal or unconstitutional or inconsistent with the caste system or something.

I know Russia and India have a lot in common, but it doesn't mean that poor countries are necessarily allergic to BRT. China for example also has a tradition of angry vengeful drivers but they have successfully implemented BRT in many cities, including Guangzhou and Urumqi, amongst many others.

I don't think that Moscow is a such poor city as you sure. If this was so, there would not be such big problem with the road traffic (especially comparing with Soviet times), and it would be much easier to improve the transport infrastructure.

The Moscow Metro was opened on May 15, 1935, and was the first metro in the Soviet Union and Russia. It has a length of 308.7 km, 186 stations, and 11 (+1 LR Line and Monorail) lines.
The Moscow Metro has a daily ridership of 6,550,000, and an annual ridership of 2,394,680,000.

P.S. Moscow has a population of 11,510,097. It is the largest city in Russia.

There is no LR line. It's light metro, not light rail. It's just financially light heavy rail.
