Thx very much Aleksey, you are doing a fine job.

I have a question though: aren't they supposed to open 3 metro stations in Kazan next year? Also, can you tell, are there any further plans for metro construction in Nizhny Novgorod after opening of Gorkovskaya till 2018?

Yes, but they started the construction of tunnels from north to the south. That is why at this moment, the northern part of future section is more ready than its southern part. It's mean that northern "Aviastroitelnaya" is in high level of readiness, "Severny Vokzal" - in medium level of readiness and "Yäşlek" - in low level of readiness. That's why there was no big necessary to visit "Yäşlek" - at this moment this station is still far from being completed.

First of all, they need to complete construction of deadends for turnover of trains beyond "Moskovskaya" station. It necessary for full separation of Avtozavodskaya and Sormovskaya lines. Currently whole Metro network operates by "fork" principle. As result, time intervals between trains at Sormovskaya Line 2 became very big (more than 10 minutes).

After this, as part of preparations for FIFA World Cup 2018, they plans to extend Sormovskaya Line (blue line) in direction to the future stadium. There will be built station "Strelka" ("Spit") at the confluence of Volga and Oka Rivers. Probably, they also will be able to open "Volga" station before the start of World Cup.

As I have come to understand, there are no immediate plans for further construction on the right bank of the Oka river in NiNo (stations "Operniy Teatr" and "Sennaya ploshchad"), "Sormovskaya" line is now considered to be a priority due to WC 2018 and the location of the future stadium, yes?

Such plans exist. These stations are really necessary - for next few years "Gorkovskaya" will be very overcrowded because it's only station on the right bank of Oka River. They plan to start construction of these stations after the World Cup 2018.

Right. In addition, there is one important moment. Four years ago, the federal government has refused to co-finance Metro construction in Russian cities. Therefore, at this moment Metro is being built only on the money from the regional and municipal budgets. Nevertheless, federal government can continue co-funding on selective principle, as part of the preparation of cities for large events. For example, Omsk authorities gets federal money for preparations to celebrations of 300-anniversary of city foundation in 2016. Kazan authorities gets big credits for preparations to Summer Universiade 2013 and later - to World Cup 2018.

As World Cup 2018 is some kind of image project for Russian government, there are big chances that they also will give money for extension of Sormovskaya Line to future stadium.

Hopefully now with the opening of Gorkovskaya station passenger flow in NiNo metro will rise considerably, so the city will be able to cut operation costs per passenger and to make metro financially viable, which would release necessary funding for further metro construction.

Thx again Aleksey, and keep up the great work.

ST. PETERSBURG METRO

November 13, 2012. The construction of the Metro stations "Bukharestskaya" ("Bucharest" ) and "Mezhdunarodnaya" ("International"), which planned to be opened in late-December 2012:



The plan for further extension of Line 5 for 2013-2016. It includes construction of three Metro stations - "Prospekt Slavy" ("Glory Avenue"), "Dunayskaya" ("Danube") and "Shushary" - as well as Metro depot "Yuzhnoye" ("Southern"). The station "Dunayskaya" will be shallow station with side platforms, "Shushary" will be ground-level station of closed-type with side platforms - all this is non-typical for St. Petersburg Metro. In addition, the section between "Shushary" and "Dunayskaya" will be built with using of one TBM "Herrenknecht" with larger diameter. Instead of two tunnels with standard diameter, there will be built one larger tunnel for two ways.

Other metro systems besides Moscow and St Petersburg are surprisingly short in Russia. Even Helsinki metro would be third longest in Russia.

What surprises? In Soviet times, the government funded the construction of Metro systems in few Soviet republics (apart from Russia). The mass construction of Metros in other Russian cities began only in 1980s. These Metros were opened shortly before the Soviet collapse. Shortly since opening, funding for Metro construction has been reduced dramatically due to macroeconomic problems which followed after Soviet collapse. The major part of regional Metro systems in Nizhny Novgorod, Novosibirsk, Samara and Yekaterinburg was built in Soviet times.

And why this surprise you? Helsinki Metro is sole subway system in Finland. Therefore, it's more easier for Finnish officials to fund construction of one Metro system, not eight.

I'd add that the way the metro systems are built in Russia is more expensive and slower than in other places. Going deep and building central platform stations makes substantial difference. Also, Russian stations are by volume quite larger than those in Helsinki metro.

What do you mean by slower? Construction or commercial speed of trains?

Commercial speed is quite fine as it is.

He means construction speed is much slower. But in this sense, why do you than keep on working like this? I find those museum-like stations in Moscow (well the newly built ones) quite unnecessary! I think it is stupid to build so expensive stations in Moscow, while all other Russian cities are having very big problems with constructing their metro networks.

You offer to blow up these stations?

Your post is totally incorrect. First, Moscow officials finance Metro construction from own (city) budget. They do not get money from the federal budget, and the reduction of financing of Metro construction in Moscow can not help to the Metro construction in Russian regions. Secondly, the decoration of stations costs no more than 2% of the total construction. This means that if you plan to built 50 stations and will not waste money on its artistic decoration, you can build one more station. Third, the last opened Metro stations in Moscow (and future station according to existing projects) are very far from the concept of station-palaces. There are no any mosaics, sculptures, etc. - just pure utilitarianism. Moreover, recently open Metro stations in other Russian cities are much more decorated.

For comparison, there are last Moscow Metro stations.

Here are Metro stations in other Russian cities, which were opened in last two years. It's very naive to think that cost of decoration materials is comparable with cost of construction of tunnels, escalators, vestibules, Metro bridges, power systems of station, etc.

The point is that the cost of decoration is a tiny part of the total amount of costs per line. For the most part, communication infrastructure is a challenge when building Moscow metro.
