The construction of a railway ring is planned to start in 2025 in St. Petersburg. A rail tunnel will be built to connect the Finlyandsky and Baltiysky stations.
The rail ring will function as a metro circle line, TASS reports. The project will comprise several rail and metro infrastructure objects. It is expected that over 400 thousand people will travel in the tunnel daily.
Preliminary works including pre-project studies and concept development are to commence in 2021-2022. Design works may start in 2024.
The ring railway is planned to be put into operation in 2030.
