In Moscow, you may receive a new subway

January 13 2009

Mayor Yuri Luzhkov has recognized that the lines of the Moscow metro is overloaded and needs to build a new, independent subway system.

"We need a second system - the second circuit, which, of course, is to connect with the existing, but remain independent," - "Luzhkov said, calling on designers' work in this direction."

Now the Moscow Metro system includes 12 lines with total length of 292 kilometers. For entry and exit of passengers operates 177 stations, located in almost all areas of city, informs ITAR-TASS .

Most of the lines serving primarily the so-called "bedroom communities, connecting them with the central part of the city, and in the" peak hours "is working at maximum capacity. Often the opening of new lines and stations do not lead to a significant improvement in the metro, as the new station can unload one subway line, but significantly increase passenger traffic on the other.

One way of addressing problems of congestion underground city authorities see the organization of passenger rail in the small ring, passing in the city. Because of this it will be possible to get from one district to another, bypassing the center.
