I saw a map, showing stub-tunnels west of Lyulin-station:

Looks as if there was an old plan to have a further line branching of at this station. Does somebody know about this?

Kind regards

To begin with, the only reason for the existing curve is the connection with the layover facility after Slivnitsa station. Otherwise, the main line should go straight-forward from Lyulin towards the city boundary as shown in several of the official proposal for extension maps. Unfortunately, this bifurcation is not in the top priority list as we speak.

- I've readed the wikipedia and I see that Line 1 extensions are going to open in 2015. With that extensions Line 1 will finish? Or are previsted more extensions too? I think Sofia Metro will be extended a lot in the next years. Congratulations

- I've readed too that Line 3 is scheduled to open in 2018, but in the form of urban light rail. It won't be a full metro? Do you think that line is going to open in 2018?

Station 15 and 14 are the ugliest new metro stations I have seen anywhere in the world!

The new stations will look pretty good - modern and futuristic! Congratulations and I hope once completed look even better! We can only be proud of them

I think the one at the airport is probably the worst because the columns and tile pattern do not match with the airport or the rest of the station. They could make a simple modern station with some grey tiles and save money whilst creating a timeless design that matches the surrounding complex.
