To be fair though, Moscow's new stations are a good level or two above anything else built in the world. They may make Seattle look bad, but they make Copenhagen or Shanghai look equally bad.

Browsing this thread is always incredibly mind-blowing and eye-opening.

Whoa those are some really nice stations. But they REALLY need to upgrade their trains.

I you're talking about the train on the last photos - its not for passenger use, but for technical purposes (measurments, cargo hauling etc).

While there is something that needs to be said about cost-effectiveness,

I think this serves as an example as why art is important. It can help evoke sense of pride and worth in a place, happiness and emotion is associated with it. This leads to people taking more of an emotional investment and pride in it.

The only metro system in the US that could ever have a chance to be a bit close to Moscow's level is DC. All the others have lost grace. Even European cities far more beautiful in the surface cannot touch Moscow's shadow. Russians should be very proud of this.

I like Pyatnitskoye Shosse quite a bit, but Alma-Atinskaya does nothing for me - it's very dull differs very little from Tulskaya or Nakhimovskiy Prospekt. Still better than the two new stations in SPB though; those are terribly garish.

Plans for Y2013:

October - second entrance to "Baumanskaya" station ("Bauman", centre of Dark-Blue line)

December - "Spartak" station ("Spartacus", north of Lilac line; it was on hold on existing line, so there's only finishing works to be done)

render


"Lermontovsky prospekt" station ("Lermontov avenue", Eastern extension of Lilac line)

render


"Zhulebino" station (untranslatable for me, antic patronym means trickster person; Eastern extension of Lilac line)

render


"Kotelniki" station ("Kettlers", Eastern extension of Lilac line)

render


"Lesoparkovaya" station ("Woodlands", Nothern extension of Light-Blue light metro line)

renders



"Bitcevskiy park" station ("Bitca park", Nothern extension of Light-Blue light metro line).

renders



All renders are courtesy www.nashtransport.ru, except for "Lesoparkovaya" (official renders by the Department of City Building Policy and Development of the City of Moscow, www.stroi.mos.ru), "Bitsevskiy park" (courtesy JSC MetroGiproTrans", www.archmetro.ru), "Spartak" and "Kotelniki" (http://moskvameniaetsy.livejournal.com journal).

In fact, I think Lilac line will be extended only to "Lermontovsky prospect", as only this station has tunnels nearly ready; "Zhulebino" has slight chances to be opened if they will build tunnels with two machines simultaneously; opening of "Kotelniki" seems unrealistic as even its pit is not yet digged.

Zhulebino looks great. The others don't really do much for me. There are also lots of great-looking (even if "tipoviye") stations along the Kozhukhovo line, Ferganskaya, for example.

It's exciting to see all this being built, especially after so many years of stagnation. One thing I'd be curious to know is: how much public process is there around planning these lines? My impression is that some komitet or other comes up with plans and announces them with no public input at all ("we're the professionals, we know better - you little people just have to use it every day!"). Is that correct?

Well, virtually all projects are submitted to the public hearings, so people who live or work in the vicinity of development site can give their inputs; and accordingly to the law, all inputs/inquiries/remarks shall have to be answered officially.

In fact, it is wery not often when projects are cancelled or greatly modified due to these hearings; so they can be assessed as mere formality; moreover, sometimes it is good, that they are formality, because of degradation of hearings to a simple brawl (like it was for "Kozhuhovskaya" station, when people living in the appartment block nearest to the station entrance have said "nah, if this station is near us or not to be built, we're choosing that it shant be built" and other people living in the neighbourhood had rather hothead reaction to this position).

Very nice! A much different style than the other beautiful stations, but nice nonetheless.

Some update:

"Spartak" ("Spartacus", north of Lilac line; mothballed station on existing line) is officially postponed for Y2014, as it is deemed unnecessary to open it before inauguration of neighbouring stadium for FC "Spartak".

It is also officially declared that "Kotelniki" station ("Kettlers", south-eastern extention of Lilac line) can be postponed to Y2014 due to still not completely resolved dispute on land ownership which impacts turnaround tunnels and transit terminal for this station. In this case for the south-eastern extention of the Lilac line we will see only "Lermontovsky Prospekt" and "Zhulebino" stations opened (works on the second station have taken significant boost, so I am changing my assessment: now its opening in the end Y2013 seems realistic).
