This extension required the purchasing of 18 new trains, for which the Russian Metrovagonmash won the bid.
Maybe, I could disappoint someone, but for cars there is always latent demand. Only two things can reduce car traffic: low life standard (economy) and reduce road and parking space for cars. At first few years (2-4) there will be lessen cars, because some former car users will use metro, but latent demand will come from other parts of the metropolitan area. Metro network never meets all transport demands, only 15-30%. The aim of metro is to meet the biggest transport demands, not the most of t.d.

If there is not support to all not-car transport, especially bicycles, tramway, and commuter rail, car traffic will increase parallel with economy, with all consequences.

However, congratulation, there are very good news about metro development
Solution for reducing car traffic isn't only metro, but give the good preconditions. For example, you finish metro line under a boulevard with 3+3 lanes. After that, reduce the boulevard to 2+2 lanes, and add wide bicycle lanes.

Somewhat true but not entirely. In Vienna public transportation has a share of 36% while motorized individual traffic has about 33%. A few % goes to cyclists and the rest is made up by pedestrians. That shows that a well developed city can have a modest car traffic volume.

I kinda disagree with reducing the number of vehicular lanes. Do that and traffic increases.

Better to let things take its course by just building more train lines and I believe things will come naturally. Transportation is a matter of free choice and not on imposition or restriction.
