Russia to construct 200 kilometres of underground by 2015

Russia will increase the overall length of its underground systems by 60% by 2015. As a Rosbalt correspondent reports, this was announced by Chairman of the Russian State Construction Department Nikolai Koshman today. Expansion of the underground system will be part of a government programme to develop underground systems by 2015. Total costs over the 13-year period will come to USD 13.68 billion. A further 227.4 kilometres of underground lines will be built by 2015 and 139 metro stations in 12 Russian cities including Chelyabinsk, Samara, Nizhni Novgorod, Novosibirsk, Saint Petersburg and Moscow. 80% of the funds will be provided by the regional budgets and 20% by the federal budget.

At present there are 436.14 kilometres of underground lines operating in Russia with 266 stations. Over 4.2 billion trips are made on the Russian underground every year. 'That is comparable to the total number of train journeys in the country,' Mr Koshman stressed. In his opinion, the Russian underground systems are not in the best state at present. The situation is particularly bad in Moscow and Saint Petersburg. He said the underground is unable to cope with the growing number of passengers in these cities. In Moscow the underground system requires a further 120 kilometres of tracks to be able to function properly. He said that by 2015 there should be 338 kilometres of underground lines in Moscow and 27 new stations in operation. There are plans to add 42 kilometres and 21 stations to the Saint Petersburg underground system.

Years of diplomatic conflict resolution efforts in Syria produced no breakthroughs. Washington and its imperial partners want endless war and regime change, not peace.

The British public made a mistake two years ago, easily led by a campaign of false promises and lies. Today REMAIN would win 60%-40% at the very least.
