Honestly speaking I'm not sure I understand the point of this concept (or potential concept). If Yekaterinburg doesn't have the money and/or time to build second line by Russian standards in time for WC2018, they should probably follow Sofia's example and build single two-way 12-diameter tunnel. It would be first-time in Russia, yes, but personally I can't see anything wrong with this.

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.

Voice of Russia, TASS
As I heard, construction of Barcelona Metro Line 9/10 was suspended as result of economic recession in EU and particularly in Spain. That's why Yekaterinburg officials decided to use Barcelona method for Metro construction.

However, without necessary funding from federal budget, it's impossible to build second Metro line in Yekaterinburg in near future regardless of the chosen method of construction - standart Russian, Barcelona-like or Sofia-like methods.

The schedule is rather pretty poor. With a huge gap in the middle of the day. Is that so due to few flights at that time? i checked and the airport has around 1million of pax in a year.

It's because there is no separate railway line from Kazan Rail Terminal to Airport. In Russia, Aeroexpress is using existing rail ways. During middle of day, these rail ways will be using for ordinary rail transportation.

I was inaccurate, I meant "Aeroexpress station in the Airport, which linked with the building of new terminal".
