The City of St. Petersburg currently boasts the second largest metro construction program in Russia. The city rather than the federal government is paying for the majority of construction, and funding has steadily increased over the last decade. Currently, St. Petersburg Metro construction budget exceeds half a 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:
July 2019 -- Line 5: stations "Prospekt Slavy", "Dunayskaya", and "Shushary"
2021 -- Line 4: station "Gornyi Institut"
