12 Donetsk Underground

Donetsk Underground

Posted on December 20, 2006 by

This is how underground (subway) is being built in Donetsk, Ukraine.

Donetsk and the surrounding territories are heavily urbanized and agglomerated into conurbation. The workforce is heavily involved with heavy industry, especially coal mining. The city is an important center of heavy industry and coal mines in the Donets Basin (Donbas) and the Ukraine. Directly under the city lie the coal mines.

So they hired coal miners to dig the tunnels for the future underground. So now they get coal and meanwhile the subway is being built. Smart isn’t it.

    Doesn’t appear as if there’s much concern about worker’s comp. or lawsuits stemming from injury. It doesn’t look like as many safety procedures as in the USA are observed.

  2. Björn says:

    …but then you would not get the coal, would you?

    To eye:

    Are you working for a company that builds monorails?

    …and there are always some ‘smart’ people how knows better than those on-the-spot.

    To eye. Your comment reminds me of the Simpsons episode when they build a monorail in Springfield…monoraiiiiil, monoraiiiiil, monoraiiiiil.

    YES tovarischi, the MONORAIL is the way of the future. Why, I’ve sold monorails to Brockway, Ogdenville, North Haverbrook Liski, and Igarka, and by golly it put them on the map!

  7. Grundes says:

    Eye. Well, the subway system has an additional benefit of being capable of serving as a bomb shelter. Can’t hide under a monorail!

    hard job…

  9. Pigeon says:

    So they’re running the tunnels through the coal measures? What happens when they want to actually mine that bit?

  10. Purba Negoro says:

    Boy those guys work hard.
