This year, anl aggregate of 8.5 km of metro lines have been built -- for the first time in the history of the Moscow underground railway. Work is currently in progress at the construction of 19 stations, four depots, and two concourses, with 18,500 workers from Russia and other CIS countries participating. Eight tunneling systems are in operation.
Next year, it is planned to put into operation another 14 km of metro lines and subsequently 18 km and 30 km -- 75 km within a five-year period. The overall length of Moscow metro stations will grow by 50 percent. More than seven million passengers ride by metro every day on average, and on weekdays metro trains carry more than nine million passengers. This is the world's largest-scale passenger traffic. Every day the twelve metro lines of the city use about 10,000 trains.
