Rostov Metro

Rostov Metro

Rostov Metro ( _ru. Ростовское Метро) is a planned rapid transit system in Rostov-on-Don, Russia. As of October 2008, the city authorities are redesigning the historical proposal (created in 1980s) at the request of the federal government. Construction may begin in 2011 if the federal government approves financing of the project.


Plans for creating Rostov metro go back to the 1970s and 1980s. A publicized 1991 map of a system provided a single 14 kilometer line with 10 station running parallel to the northern bank of Don River and reaching Rostov-on-Don Airport; [cite web |url= | title=Proekt metropolitena v g. Rostov-na-Donu (Проект метрополитена в г. Ростов-на-Дону) | | year=2003 |accessdate=2008-10-05 | language=Russian] far future plans provided for a three line system.

The plans were revived in November 2007 when Rostov Metro reappeared in the development program for rapid transit approved by the Ministry of Transportation. The program required Rostov authorities to redraft the historical proposal, taking account of past and expected development of the city, so that construction "could" resume in 2011. No other commitments were ever made. In April 2008 Rostov city hall announced an upcoming feasibility study that will replace outdated proposals of 1990s.

In January 2008 deputy mayor of Rostov estimated construction costs at 1 billion roubles (42 million US dollars) per kilometer; total project cost, including land and supporting infrastructure, would cost three times more.

In September 2008 the mayor of Rostov formed a city commission for metro construction. Deputy mayor announced than in November 2008 – February 2009 the city will select design and engineering contractors; preliminary design stage will be able to extend into 2011. In 2011 the city hall expects to have sound cost estimates for initiating federal funds appropriation. City hall expects the first stretch of Rostov metro to be operational in 13-14 years on condition of "normal" financing from the federal budget.
