Hard to keep up with all the newly opened stations.
Job well done.

Another massive job well done is what I saw today.
My prayers have finally been answered.
They have put two sets of traffic lights at the bottom of nikitsky boulevard, even with a 10 second green man for us pedestrians, no more dodging past cars..
Something so simple,makes a massive difference,in safety..

61 km, 30 stations - one more ring (TPK) to add to brown/circle line and MCC.

Looking at the metro map, I see the new yellow line 8A will connect to the new MCC line and CSKA line which is being built, would be convenient if they connected the 8A line to let's say Luzhniki.

I wonder what ,if any , is the value of flats that now have better access to the metro...

Transport is definitely getting better and better! Moscow is a good example for public transport. More big cities should take notice.

One way to keep on improving transport and infrastructure all over the country is to hold winter/summer Olympics, football tournaments and so on....:smile:
It's been awhile since Russia held the summer Olympics , maybe St Petes can try.....With Zenits new stadium almost ready, with close access to the West , it's ideal,just need to sort out the doping problems troubles...

Ah, the tales the tourists will tell about the lovely mosquitoes in St. Pete in the summer.....

I'd say the mosquitoes will be the last thing on tourists minds,when they visit the culture capital of Europe,the window to the West, white nights and the Venice of North,I could go on and on....
The journalists covering the games will find something to whine about, like they did at the Sochi games..

Sorry for the mini hijack Mr Andy.:smile:

Well, I don't think their Sochi whining was out of place. I was at the paralympic games and there was still a lot unfinished. The sink in the bathroom of the 4-star hotel where I was staying started just pouring water out of the bottom onto the floor as of the second morning. The taxi drivers took us to the staff entrance for the sledge hockey, even though the only entrance where anyone other that staff could enter was at the opposite end and we ended up missing the first time of the match because of that. And then there was the crazy run around to get fan passes there, because the office in Moscow messed up our ticket order. Even though we had received the credit card notification that the purchase had been made, they said it was a mistake and we'd have to buy tickets there. Everyone was very nice in Sochi, but the organization was on an Italian scale.

Since you don't have a history of posting fake news, I'll believe you:smile:
Not every country is going to have things running like a Swiss clock, with the games being so big as they are, a few hiccups are to be expected...
The football world cup is even bigger, expect the world media to have a field day, with past experience of the Sochi games, hopefully stuff life running water won't be a problem.

Back to transport, it's good they got the new metro line MCC up and running before the 2018 football finals, sort out any problems, same should be for hotels and stadiums..

Just noticed one of the new signs in the metro, should be "Northbound" but " Northboud".
After spending billions on remont of the metro, small errors shouldn't happen, which we know leads to ridicule, and then Russians go on the defensive..
If Russia can cut out these small flaws ( pay more attention to finer details) then they could have things running like the Swiss and no-one will take the piss:smile:

Well, as military parasitologist, I only appreciate information on related matters ;)

Oh, give me a break! That's all she post. Like a hotel has never had a problem anywhere else in the world?

Well just have your man buy you a regular hairbrush and stop with diamond encrusted ones! Then maybe, just maybe you won't have to run to the drugstore looking all sexy in the morning. Nothing I hate more than a woman in a bathrobe running down to the shop to buy a hairbrush.

I like the country too much to risk being deported for being caught in public in my PJs and with wet messy hair! (=looking all sexy and hardly sane)

Speaking of progress in the transportation system - anyone ride a London bus lately? We were in for quite a surprise!
