Sometimes I wonder are some people here really that dumb it doesn't matter what's the thing in Dubai these days and it's not about fashion rails neither.
Sofia needs metro system which happens to be the most effective public transport system created by now, it reduces the traffic, it's fast ,it doesn't make any pollution can handle a huge number of passengers per year and it doesn't spoil the city looks like a freakin net of concrete and steel structures and bridges.. Actually that kind of structures are usually used just for suburban transport.

If u want that ugly shit I don't. Too much concrete in this city anyway. Modern cities develop underground. That's because modern cities value the space more than anything else.

It`s not ugly to me.

It`s a monorail which is very modern, good and cheap transport solution.

I personally do not mind this kind of monorail structures even in the city itself ( i have seen good examples and i can definitely say that it doesn't spoil the view ) but there are places ( like right in front of the military club ) where one should simply put the traffic under the ground since this is a historical place and should not be changed. Sofia's downtown is not the place for a monorail, but why not anywhere else?

You see I don't mind having both over and under ground trains, just like we have now, underground in the downtown area and over ground in the subs (Interpred/Mladost)...Metro is a necessity for Sofia and it has to be finished ASAP, no more delays, no more bs

People, understand, all this urbanization, infrastructures etc is overloading the sences. I find it hard to believe that you prefer such concrete abomenation to be visible when it can be deep underground. The perfect city is lowrise residentials, neat calm suburbs, underground transportation, modern city center, lots of green space and sports fascilities. Sofia is not New York, that is way overdeveloped and can't be saved. Sofia is developing now and our actions should bear a great responsibility. Cause if we do things right, in time our city will turn better that other megacities that already have all the upgrades that we are building now.

It is better when the Ungerdround travels above ground on areas where it is possible, it looks better and is a more fun journey than only to travel underground. The German underground´s travel above ground in mroe rural areas for example, in town however they travel underground mostly, that´s how it should be in sofia.

i did some personal work on this one,.., hope it won't bother u that much



about the map :

Red line - MD-1, 8 stations already in use, another 6 on the way... hopefully in 2009 they'll be fully functional. (however this is bulgaria so even 2010 will be good)

Blue line - MD-2, 2 stations already built and there's some stuff gettin done on a third one near Serdika in the downtown area ... if u ask me about any completion date ... i hardly believe there's someone who knows that (might be wrong though)

Green line - MD-3, it's ain't even sure if it will be built anytime soon, so basically it's still a project if u ask me ...

cheers m8

They are opening the tender offers, today, for line 2

Следобед отварят 8-те оферти за изпълнение на част от втория метрорадиус в София

19 Юни 2008 | 14:11


Осем фирми подадоха оферти за изпълнител на строителството на участъци от втория метрорадиус в София. Днес те ще бъдат официално отворени в сградата на заявителя на обществената поръчка "Метрополитен" ЕАД , съобщиха от Столичната община.

Процедурата е за изпълнител на строежа на метроучастъка от столичния квартал "Надежда" до бул."Черни връх" и е повторна. Наложи се, след като при предишния търг стана ясно, че офертите на изпълнителите надхвърлят почти двойно възможностите за финансиране чрез еврофондове по програма "Транспорт".

Обявена е по решение на Съвета на директорите на "Метрополитен" ЕАД за разширение на метрото в София - участък "Пътен възел Надежда - Централна ж.п. гара - пл. "Света Неделя" - НДК - бул." Черни връх", вкл. конструкции на 3 метростанции, участъкови тунели 4,42 км, архитектурно-строителна и електромеханична част за целия участък с дължина 6,4 км и 7 метростанции.

It would be funny if the guy who would first pop his head out of the tunnel would have a romanian flag and he would ask:

-"Is this the connextion for the M5 lane in Bucharest?"
-"No"
-"Damn, i knew i must have taken a left turn when i reached University Square" ?
