RUSSIA: A southern extension of Moscow metro Line 1 on February 15 brought the number of stations on the network to 200. The 1·9 km section from Rumyantsevo to Salaryevo follows on from the opening of the previous extension, a 2·5 km section from Troparyevo to Rumyantsevo, on January 18.

Most of the latest section runs in bored tunnels, with around 500 m built using the cut-and-cover method. A park-and-ride site with 1 000 spaces has opened at Salaryevo, and the line’s third depot is under construction near the new terminus.
