    An ambitious project aimed at improving connections between the capital and its suburbs has been announced by the city authorities.
    In as little as five years, City Hall plans to build a whopping 79 kilometers of new metro lines, with 27 so-called “light rail” stations and another 16 standard ones.
    In the recent past, it took the authorities years to construct a single station.
    “Our aim is to extend current lines to suburban towns,” Deputy Mayor Vladimir Resin was quoted as saying by the Komsomolskaya Pravda newspaper. “Now we are drawing a thorough construction plan and calculating the expenses.”
    City Hall also reportedly plans to build a second metro ring line, in an effort to reduce passenger traffic at the central stations by at least 20 percent.
    The whole initiative is part of Moscow Mayor Sergey Sobyanin’s general plan to tackle the capital’s traffic problem.
    In the late November, Sobyanin promised to boost investment in the metro and work out a way to speed up the construction process.

    With Oil crude prices hovering above 90 $ per barrel Russia will have more than enough money to spend on these projects .
