Yekaterinburg government assures that second metro branch will be completed
The city is working on a second metro line, in part, to prepare for its status as a potential host city for a World Cup 2018 match, IPI reports.
"The city's budget for next year will be planned funding for the first phase of designing the second branch of the underground," Denis Sukhorukov, a Yekaterinburg city official, said, according to IPI. "The speed of construction is directly related to how fast the money will come. And if we do not (get) help (from) the federal government, we will not be able to finish the subway to the World Cup 2018. We hope that the words of Dmitry Medvedev (are) more important than Arkady Dvorkovich, and we would still be able to agree on parity co-financing."
During a visit to Innoprom 2012, the Yekaterinburg exhibition, Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said that the federal budget would co-finance the construction of the Yekaterinburg metro. The federal council meeting this week, however, saw Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich say that the government was not prepared to live up to Medvedev's words and is not ready to co-finance the construction of the metro line, according to IPI.
