Uraltransmash presents new tram models
17 Aug 2015




The 71-409 is available in three-, five-, seven- and nine-section versions

RUSSIA: Uralvagonzavod subsidiary Uraltransmash has presented its latest tram models at the Innoprom 2015 trade fair in Yekaterinburg.

The company has updated its existing 71-409 model as a multi-articulated 100% low-floor tram available in three-, five-, seven and nine-section variants. It received type approval earlier this month following tests in Yekaterinburg. Uraltransmash’s R1 tram, a mock-up of which was unveiled at Innoprom 2014, is based on this design. However, the styling on the 71-409 is considerably different

Yaroslavl plans fast tram lines
16 Sep 2015

RUSSIA: Yaroslavl tram operator Yargorelektrotrans has announced plans for two fast tram lines. A feasibility study is expected to be completed soon.

One route would link the main line station to the airport, southeast of the city. The other would be a north-south route intended to serve the city’s busiest tram corridor, which currently carries 40 million passengers per year. This would involve the reconstruction of 6·8 km of existing line as well as building 13·7 km of new alignment. Trams would travel at average speeds of 30 km/h, taking 80 min to complete the end-to-end journey

I have to say this tram hasn't appeared in the city carrying passengers. I've been waiting for that since it came to be tried but I didn't manage to see it.

384 million roubles correspond to less than 6 million US dollars. That is enough to buy just 2-3 modern, western trams

I guess this is just a financial support of the local budgets from the federal centre.
Anyway, what's the point of buying "western" trams? Very stupid idea in the current circumstances

Iran surpasses Russia in metro construction !

Russia claims to be a world superpower yet the country is not able to provide with a metro line one of its biggest cities. The construction of the Omsk metropoliten has been going on since 1992 and after more than 20 years it looks just like the pictures published above show us ...

Observing the development of metro systems in the Russian cities I came to the surprising conclusion: Russia has been surpassed by much smaller and until a short time ago less developed Iran.

Number of new metro stations opened in Russia each year since 2010:
2010 - 6 (Moscow - 2, Sankt Petersburg - 2, Kazan - 1, Novosibirsk - 1)
2011 - 8 (Moscow - 3, Volgograd - 3, Sankt Petersburg - 1, Yekaterinburg - 1)
2012 - 8 (Moscow - 3, Sankt Petersburg - 3, Nizny Novgorod - 1, Yekaterinburg - 1)
2013 - 5 (Kazan - 3, Moscow - 2)
2014 - 4 (Moscow - 4)
2015 - 2 (Moscow - 1, Samara - 1)
Total: 33 new stations (and a visible declining trend)

Iran:
2010 - 6 (Tehran - 6)
2011 - 28 (Mashad - 22, Tehran - 6)
2012 - 7 (Tehran - 7)
2013 - none
2014 - 10 (Tehran - 5, Shiraz - 5)
2015 - 14 (Tehran - 7, Tabriz - 6, Shiraz - 1)
Total: 65 new stations !

Interestingly in Tehran 31 new stations were opened, more than twice as much as in Moscow (just 15).

Iranian metro networks are also much newer than Russian (first metro line there was inaugurated in 1999).

The need for new metro lines in Iran is much bigger than in Russia, so hardly a surprise. Russians/Soviets built most what they need a long time ago.

This is simply not true. In Western Europe many even middle-sized cities get some kind of a fast transportation systems like metro, LRT or fast tram (Brescia, Genova, Bilbao, Palma de Mallorca, Rennes, Toulouse, numerous German cities). In my country three such cities have fast tram lines (without level crossings and with some underground stations): Kraków (population 760.000), Poznań (550.000) and Szczecin (410.000).

Meanwhile in Russia there are many really big cities (around one million or more inhabitants) where the construction of metro lines has been dragging on for a long time without a single station inaugurated or even totally abandoned (Omsk, Chelyabinsk, Krasnoyarsk). Other big Russian cities lack any kind of a modern transportation (Rostov na Donu, Voronezh, Perm, Ufa). Russia is now in a dire economic situation but even before the current crisis the country lacked resources to provide the above mentioned cities with a decent transportation systems. The main problem is that in Russia the military has always had a priority and the civil infrastructure has been more or less neglected.

You, guys, really can't understand that we have different scales. For EU, cities with population of 0.5-1 million (and little more) resident are quite developed cities with high level of business activity. While for Russia (and especially for China) such cities are quite provincial by local standards with corresponding attention from the side of federal officials. For example, Krakow with population of 760.000 is second largest Polish city while my native Yaroslavl (603.691 residents) is only 26th most populous city in Russia.

So, it's better to compare cities not in terms of population, but in terms of their significance levels within the country (1st vs 1st, 2nd vs 2nd, etc).

A lot of these provincial cities (~500,000) lack paved roads outside downtown, and you're talking about subways?
