Mayor of Moscow Sergei Sobyanin unveiled three new subway stations in the southeast of Moscow on Friday morning.
The Lyublinsko-Dmitrovskaya line of the Moscow Metro was extended by 4.3 km and now has three new stations; Borisovo, Shipilovskaya and Zyablikovo, in addition to the 14 already existing.
The three stations are the first projects completed under the new Moscow Metro development program until 2020. They were inaugurated one month ahead of schedule.
“The trip from [Zyablikovo] to the city center used to take one or two hours, but now, with three new lines completed, it will take half an hour to get to the city center,” Sobyanin said during the opening ceremony.
He also said that Moscow authorities plan to open a car park for 450 vehicles near the end station to encourage car drivers to use public transport.
The Moscow subway system currently has 182 stations in 12 lines, with the total length of 301.2 km.
THE COMMENT FINE PRINT - IN DEFENSE AGAINST MENTAL MIDGETS:Why do you not respond to my comment? Why is my comment gone? Why are you mean? Why do I hate you for erasing my comment? Why do you hate me for my comment? Why is cussing not allowed (Sometimes you do it - sorta!), when it helps me express my feelings? Why are you a #$&%@#? Why is it wrong to wish you dead? Why do you love Russia? Why are you stupid? Why are you unpatriotic? Why is, why is, why is and why is? My GOD man, Why are you worse than a communist?
The above manifestations of a horde of mental midgets is why I only respond to comments that have signed up to be a user of the blog! (Top right of website is link!) Anyone can comment and anyone can be erased after they comment, but only someone who takes the time to sign up gets a second look from me at the comment. Sorry: I have to draw the line somewhere and when you get thousands of spam, hate and death threat comments a day, then all you do is look at spam, hate and death threats, then I never get anything else done. If you comment after signing in, then I will get a message that someone has tried to post a real comment?
Thanks for understanding and even if you don't understand, thanks anyway...
Another day in the life of Windows to Russia...
