Plans for Metro unveiled

Plans for a new Sk43.6 billion ($872 million) metro system in Bratislava have been revealed.

Representatives of the Transport Ministry, City Council, and investor Metro company presented the plans in the capital for the new underground links.

The proposal would see two lines with two intersections and four branches to the Rača, Ružinov, Dúbravka and Petržalka districts. There would also be connections with the current tram system and main railway lines to Malacky, Trnava, Galanta, and Dunajská Streda.

The first 8.5km section from Petržalka to the central railway station should be built by 2010 and at a projected cost of Sk13.5 billion. The project is slated for full completion by 2030.

Cabinet is due to discuss the project in February next year.
