GORKI, November 27 (Itar-Tass) —— Russian President Dmitry Medvedev has promised to allocate up to 450 billion roubles in the next five years to build 35 new metro stations in Moscow.
“There are large-scale plans regarding the Moscow metro. As far as I remember there are about 35 new stations in the immediate plans,” he said at a meeting with regional journalists on Saturday, November 26. The news stations will help solve transport problems in those districts, which so far have not been covered by the metro network. According to the president, it is planned to allocate from 400 to 450 billion roubles in the next five years to build new metro stations.
“Moscow’s budget is big, but it is not big enough, so, we will help Moscow to solve this problem, including through buying a number of facilities that are currently owned by the city,” the president said. Apart from that, it is planned to buy new trains equipped with air conditioning systems.
