Construction work at the Baku Metro purple line’s station code named B3 has been accelerated, Deputy Chairman of the Baku Metro CJSC Hidayat Mammadov said on June 7.

He noted that the most modern equipment is being installed at the station.

“New generation equipment is used here. Therefore, the station is planned to be put into operation in late 2019–first half of 2020,” Mammadov said.

Baku Metro, opened in 1967, was the first subway system to be launched in the East. Serving the residents and guests of the capital for more than 50 years, Baku Metro is the most affordable and safest way to get around the city.

Having 25 stations on 3 lines – Green, Red and Purple – the Baku Metro is 36.63 km in length. By 2030, it is planned to expand the infrastructure of Baku Metro and create a giant underground transport network consisting of 76 stations, 6 electric depots, and 5 lines with a total length of 119.1 kilometers.
