Dnepropetrovsk Tram

 System

Dnipropetrovsk, Ukraine's third largest city (1.2 million inhabitants, Dnepropetrovsk in Russian) on the river Dnieper is a major industrial centre in Southern Ukraine.

The first metro line opened in 1995 and has 6 stations. The first section starts at Vokzal'na (Central Railway Station) and runs towards the west. A metro train consists of 3-4 cars (initially 5-car-trains were used).

Apart from Komunarivs'ka all stations are deeply underground and some are of the typical large ex-Soviet palace style.

 Projects

A 2.1 km extension of the existing line into the city centre east from the railway station is under construction, with Teatral'na and Tsentral'na stations. Earliest completion date is 2010.

Construction of the span Tsentral'na - Muzeina (other proposed names - Zhovtneva Ploshcha, Soborna, Istorichniy Muzei) is delayed. This will be the third section of Line 1.

A second line is planned to cross the river Dnieper.
