UKRAINE: President Petro Poroshenko officially opened Kharkiv metro’s 30th station, and the first with disabled access, on August 19.

When revenue service begins in the coming days, Peremoha will become the new northern terminus of Line 3, also known as the Oleksiivska Line. The 400 m extension of Line 3 from its previous northern terminus at Oleksiivska forms the first part of a 1·1 km extension that will also see a new depot open in 2020. The Line 3 fleet is currently stabled at Line 1’s Moskovske depot.

A southern extension from Metrobudivnykiv to Kharkiv International Airport is planned, with the 3·5 km first phase to Odeska with two stations currently under construction and scheduled to open in 2019.
