That's not slang. Slang is what is not widely used. When slang becomes widely used it simply becomes a part of dialect. But, yet again, vetka is only used for radial lines. Circle is always line, what doesn't make sense either as it's circle, not line. In relation to metro as a unite body it wouldn't be that slangish. It's a branch of the system.

Neither one really makes sense in relation to a metro line, but they're commonly used in Moscow, so who are we to judge?
You partially right
Let's say it would look like that
Cotton - Hlopok
Cotton - Nitka
Thread - Nitka
Thread - Vetka
Branch - Vetka
Branch - Otrasl'
etc. Branch could be translated into at least 10 different words in Russian, but most of them would have entirely different analogs in English while translating back from Russian.


We simply does not have an analog for Thread in Russian. Nitka directly means what is called Cotton in English, yet Cotton has many more meanings, like Hlopok.

Shifted synonyms is the reason why automated translators are not able to translated Russian or Chinese to English.

the purchase of used PRC construction equipment from krane.ru - is Metrostroy engaging in cost-cutting that could endanger the lives of workers?

Endanger for what reasons? Chinese machinery is not less reliable than Russian one, for sure!

yeah, it seems you're right. There have been quite a few construction incidents on PRC metros in recent months, but that might be more indicative of practice rather than equipment.

Well, I heard about incidents in Cologne and Warsaw as well.

This statistic says more about the Chinese equipment. Last year, in China were opened much more Metro stations (241) than in the rest of world (150).

Lomonosovsky prospect station construction site.

Noticed 2 busses that belong to Inzhstroyproject-2010. No more policemen.



An excavator started to dig out a new way on the other side of the avenue not far from a BRT stop.





The plot is still busy.

Transfer corridor between Arbatskaya and Borovitskaya is now being refurbished. For that reason, the decoration layer has been taken off. Seems a bit strange and disgusting:

WTF? The country which is world country in the field of science use this third world transport solution? The country with very developed electric transport system in Soviet Union times?

What is the problem to develop rapid tramway for middle-high capacity city transport system in Moscow, like secondary network?

Unfortunately, in the terms of the general development of urban transport Russia is much closer to third-world countries.

In Soviet times, only quarter of families had own personal cars.

Dense auto traffic and damaged mentality of drivers (who will be ride by this tramline). For the success of this system, it should be fully isolated from other road lines at the whole route.
