See the map below. Metro line 1 extension is in light blue. Latest info is that in May stations "Mladost", "Studentska", "Musagenitza", "Interpred" and "Vasil Levski staidum" will be operational. Till the end of the year the last station of the extension - "Kliment Ohridski" will be operational too.

AFAIK some stations were built a lot earlier, back in the commie era... Is that true? They were connected by a tunnel? Which stations were these?

Could you give summary on the status of the 2nd metro line?

The 2 built up in the commie era station are from MD2. "NDK" and "Hemus" stations. You can see where they are on the map in the previous posts. For more pics you can check out one of my previous posts - http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showpo...62&postcount=6. The construction of MD2's 8 stations started 2 months ago.

More pics of the almost ready stations from MD1's extension:

SOFIA, Aug 27 (Reuters) - Bulgaria has contracted Turkish Dogus Construction Group and Bulgarian consortium Metrotrace to build Sofia's second metro line for a combined 471 million levs ($354.4 million), the transport ministry said on Wednesday.

The companies won a tender for the 6.5 kilometre stretch, aimed to relieve the traffic in Sofia and cut carbon dioxide emissions by 35,000 tonnes per year, the ministry said.

Turkey's Dogus will build the first sector of the stretch, which is 3.8 kilometres, for 329.1 million levs ($247.6 million). Bulgaria's Metrotrace will finish the last 2.6 kilometres in a 141.9 million levs ($106.8 million) deal.

The European Union-backed project will be cofinanced by the Sofia Municipality. The line should be completed by 2012.

The Balkan country launched a small section of the Sofia subway in early 1998. It plans to build three railway lines across the capital, where more than 2 million people, or roughly a quarter of Bulgaria's population, live.
We should clarify that those are the companies that will built a section on MD2 that just started a couple of months ago.
Major constructor of the first MD pictures of which you see is Japanese TAISEI Corporation along with some local companies.

Anyone got pictures from Hemus and NDK stations that were build in the 80s? And if the tunnel between this stations is build, are the exits also build?

Both "NDK" and "Hemus" station plus the tunnel between them were finished in rough construction phase while NDK(National Palace of Culture) was built in the period 1978-81. No interior works were done in the 2 stations, nor tracks were laid in the tunnel. Just rough construction. Since 1981 the 2 stations and the tunnel are conserved and will be probably opened soon for completion as it is included in the contract of Trace group - the company that won the tender for the construction of the southern stretch of MD2; NDK - Cherni Vruh.
Right now the sealed North entrance for "Hemus" station can be seen in the middle of the underwalk of "Cherni Vruh" blvd. right at the Museum "Earth and People" in Sofia.

I'm really interested in these stations, and the buildings above them too. Any pics of the entrance you mentioned above?

We were contacted by a group of young architects to shoot the construction of a subway station, downtown Sofia, Bulgaria.

The station is near the National Stadium "Vasil Levski" and the Secondary School of Construction, Architecture and Geodesy “Hristo Botev”.

Екипът на ProvoCAD се свърза с нас за заснемане на строителните работи по метрото на кръстовището "Евлоги Георгиев" и "Драган Цанков" във връзка с техния проект за "Стадион Юнак".

What are the unusual outside covered tunnels that are in the pictures of Interpred and Musagenitsa? They remind of the tunnel-bridge in Toronto.

This is where the metro tracks go. I think the tunnel is to prevent noise pollution of the surroundings...
