Moscow Metro: working on revamping that freight ring…

The ring in the middle of the map is the original Brown Line….the large oval shaped ring (thin line) is the new (but really old) huge ring to get around the city of Moscow…

The Brown Line is a very useful ring of subway (metro) and the new (but old) circle and or ring as they call it, will ensure the growth going forward, as Moscow expands in size…

The huge ring has been there a long time, but it was never envisioned to be transporting passengers. It was a dual freight line to help transverse the city and make getting goods from one side to the other easier. But….due to the fact that passengers were not to use it. They never cared to make user friendly stations. This is what has taken time to revamp. Adding stations and rebuilding the old stations…

It seems that they garnered a great idea and I think large parts are in use as of right now. It is not a complete circle yet for passengers, but it looks to get done in 2018 as they wanted to do…

Better view of the new ring only…

The subways (metros) in Tokyo, Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Seoul are the only subways that carry near the same and or sometimes more passengers than Moscow’s Metro. The Moscow Metro is the busiest system of mass transit in the Europe section. This is more than twice the number carried by the London Underground Rail, which has 270 stations compared with the Moscow metro’s 163….thus, the stations in Moscow are crammed pack like sardines at times…

2.4 billion annual passengers Plus rides the Moscow Metro….it is true, I have been there and squeezed through the tunnels of Moscow with thousands of thousands of humans at a time…

Hmm…
