Metro in Russia - comparative analysis

To close this topic, I made a brief comparative analysis of the perspectives of Metro building in the 15 most populated Russian cities.

Top 15 most populated Russian cities (2010) - "city" ("federal subject of Russia"), "population":

1. MOSCOW (federal city) - 10.562 mln. people
Moscow Metro system, which was opened in 1935, is one of the largest and busiest Metro system in the world. It include 182 stations with total length 301.2 km. The Moscow Metro is constantly developing and expanding year after year. Three new stations planned to be open next year.



2. SAINT PETERSBURG (federal city) - 4.600 mln. people
St.-Petersburg Metro, which was opened in 1955, is deepest and one of the busiest Metro systems in the world. It include 63 stations with total length 112.5 km. The expansion of St.-Peterburg Metro in near future is connected with Line 5, which was formed in 2008-09. Two "ghost stations" of Line 5 planned to be open next year. The southern part of this line planned to be expanded since 2012.



3. NOVOSIBIRSK (Novosibirsk Oblast) - 1.409 mln. people
Novosibirsk Metro was opened in 1986. It include 12 stations with total length 14.3 km. The passanger volume in Novosibirsk Metro is relatively big. 13th station planned to be open this year. However, futher expansion of Novosibirsk Metro is questionable.



4. YEKATERINBURG (Sverdlovsk Oblast) - 1.373 mln. people
Yekatering Metro was opened in 1991. It included 7 stations with total lenght 9.5 km (the length of operating lines - 8.5 km). The passanger volume in Yekaterinburg Metro is relatively big compared with low number of stations. Two new stations planned to be open next year. However, futher expansion of Yekaterinburg Metro is questionable.



5. NIZHNIY NOVGOROD (Nizhniy Novgorod Oblast) - 1.280 people
Metro in Nizhniy Novgorod was opened in 1985. It included 13 stations with total length 15.5 km. The passanger volume in Nizhniy Novgorod Metro is relatively low, because all stations were built at left bank of Oka River. The new station at right bank of Oka River planned to be open in 2012. In near future it's planned to built few more stations at right bank.



6. KAZAN (Republic of Tatarstan) - 1.137 mln. people
Kazan Metro, which was opened in 2005, is youngest Metro system in Russia. It included 6 stations with total length 8.4 km. The passanger volume in Kazan Metro is relatively low, but it must be greatly increased after the opening of stations at northern bank of Kazanka River (including the station near Moscow Rail Terminal). The first station at nothern bank of Kazanka River planned to be open next year. Four more station (three at northern part and one at southern part) planned to be open before Summer Universiade 2013, scheduled in Kazan.



7. SAMARA (Samara Oblast) - 1.135 mln. people
Samara Metro was opened in 1987. It included 9 stations with total length 11.4 km. The passanger volume in Samara Metro is relatevily low compared with passanger volume in other kind of transport. The construction of tenth station was stopped, this station planned to be open not early 2016.



8. OMSK (Omsk Oblast) - 1.128 mln. people
The construction of Omsk Metro was started in 1992. Today some objects (one station, Metro bridge) are partly completed. The first line of Omsk Metro with 4 stations (length 6.1 km) is scheduled to open in 2016, but it can be rescheduled due to lack of funding.



9. CHELYABINSK (Chelyabinsk Oblast) - 1.096 mln. people
The construction of Chelyabinsk Metro was started in 1992. Today only small part of Metro system is completed. Futher expansion of Chelyabinsk Metro is questionable due to lack of funding. The first line of Chelyabinsk Metro with 4 stations (total length 6.7 km) will not open before 2016.



10. ROSTOV-NA-DONU (Rostov Oblast) - 1.049 mln. people
It's planned to built Metro system in Chelyabinsk. Construction may begin in 2014 (or later) if the federal government approves financing of the project.



11. UFA (Republic of Bashkotostan) - 1.038 mln. people
Ufa Metro has been planned since the late 1980s. On May 30, 1996, there was a ceremony marking the beginning of preparatory construction work. In 1998, the government decided to run the first trains by 2007. In 2004, this was delayed to 2010. Presently there is no construction work taking place.



12. VOLGOGRAD (Volgograd Oblast) - 1.017 mln. people
The unique Metrotram system (hybrid of Metro and tram) was opened in 1984. It included 19 stations with total length 13.5 km (including underground part with 3 stations and total length 3.3 km). The southern expansion of Metrotram line with 3 underground stations and total length 4 km. planned to be open next year, after the purchase of Metrotrams of new model.



13. PERM (Perm Krai) - 0.986 mln. people
First plans of construction of Perm Metro date back to the 1970s. A feasibility study was compiled in 1990. However, during the 1990s, economic difficulties prevented planning and construction. In the early 2000s, there was again hope for the line to be built. Opening of the system was estimated somewhere between 2015 and 2020. But, lack of funding hampered the project and plans were put on hold.



14. KRASNOYARSK (Krasnoyarsk Krai) - 0.965 mln. people
Construction of Krasnoyarsk Metro began in 1995. However, after three years of work and 500 meters of tunneling, a lack of funds slowed construction considerably. By 2004, new tunneling equipment had been purchased, but another funding cut stopped progress again. According to officials, first Metro line with three stations planned to be open in 2013-2015. But this plans seems unrealistic. All construction works were stopped.



15. VORONEZH (Voronezh Oblast) - 0.844 mln. people
There are no any real plans of Metro construction in Voronezh (like in other less populated Russian cities).



THE END.

Construction of Metro in Lebedyan

Lebedyan is a town in Lipetsk Oblast, Russia, located on the upper Don River 62 km northwest of Lipetsk. It is the location of the largest fruit juice manufacturer in Eastern Europe and the sixth largest in the world, "Lebedyanskiy". Population: 20.7 thousands people.

Lebedyan was founded in 1613 largely to guard the holdings of Ivan Nikitich Romanov, the tsar's uncle and served as a border outpost protecting South Russia from the Crimean Tatar incursions. The Trinity Monastery was established there in 1621 and several churches were built until the end of the century; they are all now reduced to ruins.

Chartered in 1779, Lebedyan developed in the 19th century as a centre of horse racing and horse breeding. The locals claim that the first racetrack in Russia was opened there in 1826. The Agricultural Society of Lebedyan, founded in 1847, was influential in preparing the Emancipation Reform of 1861.

Lebedyan is the birthplace of Yevgeniy Zamyatin. Other residents of the town include Mikhail Bulgakov and Andrey Bely. Ivan Turgenev incorporated a story titled "Lebedyan" in his collection "The Hunting Sketches".

Lebedyan has two cathedrals, both dedicated to the icon of the Theotokos of Kazan. The old and neglected cathedral goes back to the 18th century, while the larger cathedral on the market square was designed in the Empire style and consecrated in 1839.



In 1989 begun construction of private line of Lebedyan Metro. The construction of Lebedyan Metro funded by pensioneer-enthusiast Leonid Mulyarchik. Frustrated with the poor condition of the roads in Lebedyan, his home village in central Russia, Leonid Mulyarchik has taken matters into his own hands and is building an underground system.

Since starting work in 1989, Mulyarchik, has dug a tunnel more than 1,200ft (366 m.) long. He will also be supplying the rolling stock, all automated, and has made mini-tunnels in certain spots in case his neighbors want a metro of their own. Experts confirm the reliability and durability of the constructions.

Some experts are skeptical that all underground works was personally done by Mulyarchik. They say that there is big underground network of tunnels (like catacombs) in Lebedyan and some tunnels were found during Metro construction. Other local residents also do not approve of the activities of Mulyarchik.
