Publication of new St Petersburg metro map was met with huge pride and anticipation by every living soul in the city, anxious to see M6 come to fruition within the next few years.

I know, you look at that and think how can they finish that station in three weeks? But don't forget that Tajiks are very hard-working productive people. Myakinino station in Moscow went from a construction site to a finished product literally overnight.

Don't worry, brother! Everything will be OK

I saw a lot of Metro stations which were in lower level of readiness one month before appointed date of opening. But, as it was said in Soviet times: "Party said - We need it!, Komsomol answered - Will be done!"

If there would no problems with the supply of escalator parts, these stations could be opened in August. So, builders got extra four months for preparations. Now escalators are installed, facing works at stations were mainly completed long time ago. So, the three remaining weeks is more than enough for completion of rest part of works.

If I understood correctly, in August 2012 they won contest and should to supply 54 "Neva" wagons in 2012-2014 (including 12 wagons in 2012). In order to meet the deadline, the first 12 wagons will be built by "Škoda Works" in Czech Republic. The next 42 wagons will be built on the base of Petersburg Tram Mechanical Factory.

However, how I read, now they have problems with supply of first 12 wagons in 2012. So, if these wagons will not supplied in time, the contract can be canceled. It will mean the end of "Neva" project.

YEKATERINBURG METRO

Metro builders from Barcelona to participate in building metro line in Yekaterinburg

November 27, 2012 17:57 Moscow Time

Metro builders from Barcelona will participate in building a metro line in Yekaterinburg in the Urals.

According to the city administration, it has chosen the Spanish version as the optimal construction, a two-way tunnel with a diameter of 12.5 meters where trains travel in different directions one over another.

Compared to the classical version, this method is linked with less excavation and engineering communications.

The metro line will be commissioned in 2018, ahead of the FIFA World Cup matches in the city in 2018.

И всем понятно что америкосы тут не причем. Ты наверно веришь тому что читал в комсомолке, что природные пожары в Россие это из за американских экспериментов в Аляске.
