MOSCOW, April 23 (Itar-Tass) — Two or three new subway stations will be opened in downtown Moscow in the years to come, Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin said.
“Two or three new stations will appear in the centre of Moscow,” he told Moscow-24 television, Govorit Moskva (Moscow Speaking) radio and Vechernaya Moskva (Evening Moscow) newspaper on Monday, April 23.
He made it clear that these would be totally new stations, not the completion of those that were started to be built in Soviet times and then mothballed.
He said earlier that the city authorities have doubled the amount of funding earmarked for subway construction in 2012 to more than 100 billion roubles.
“In 2010, we allocated 25 billion roubles and 50 billion roubles in 2011. We plan to give more than 100 billion roubles this year,” the mayor said.
In 2012, the city administration plans to build 8.6 kilometres of new subway lines and more than 75 kilometres by 2015.
