RUSSIA: Moscow Mayor Sergey Sobyanin inaugurated a northern extension of metro Line 10 on September 16. The 5·6 km extension takes the Lyublinsko-Dmitrovskaya line from Marina Roscha to Petrovsko-Razumovskaya, with intermediate stations at Butyrskaya and Fonvizinskaya.

Cross-platform interchange with Line 9 is provided at Petrovsko-Razumovskaya, while Fonvizinskaya offers interchange to the monorail line’s Ulitsa Malashenkova station.

A further 8 km, three-station extension north from Petrovsko-Razumovskaya to Seligerskaya is planned to open in 2017. This will include a new depot at Likhobory. More extensions are planned in 2025-30.

Later this year a western extension of Line 8 from Park Pobedy to Ramenki is due open, along with the second ring line’s first phase from Delovoy Tsentr to Petrovsky Park.
