Moscow Metro Projects

by Yuri Popov (updated in September 2016)

The City of Moscow currently boasts the largest and most ambitious metro construction program in Europe.  With a dozen of extensions under construction, the expansion pace of the Moscow Metro is unparalleled on the continent.  The city rather than the federal government is paying for the majority of construction, and funding has steadily increased over the last decade.  Currently, Moscow Metro construction budget exceeds three billion dollars per year.  All construction funding is spent on regular heavy-rail metro.  As of the time of this writing, the projected schedule of new station openings is as follows:
