This line of the Moscow metro is abandoned now and hasn't been opened for public. However, it was used for connection of defence enterprises and classified institutions under the territory of Moscow.
First Have a nice weekend.
KIROV IS BACK BIATCHES
WHERE the heck were you?!?!!?
A lot of the old guard is gone, or quiet, or posting as “someone” else.
That’s the ‘D-6′ line of Glukhovskij’s ‘Metro 2033’?
löl I think that isnt tha Metro Dva aka D-6, would be awsome if anyone could take pictures of tha secred metro
Damn, these russians had large amounts of money!
And technology in underground engineering too!
I looks like someone sneezed and blew snot everywhere.
I am surprised these have not quickly filled up with water. The water table cannot be that low in Moscow.
So if the tunnels are closed to the public how does someone get the pictures..? Cool pictures though its neat to see whats underground. Thanks for the upload…
half life catacombs in reality
So sad, I had great hopes for the Metro 2…
And now I see this, it’s abandoned….
In the US they used a suspended & damped tunnel in tunnel design to survive a nuclear blast.
Steel is subject to corrosion and has a lower compressive strength than concrete.
Today you could use a phase change material.
seems morbid. i like it!
This may be also some of the disued part of the public Metro. Each system, and the Moscow Metro is a large system, experiences changes in plans, changes in operation procedures, etc. Each subway system has an important amount of tunels interconnecting lines for transfer of trainsets,. maintenance, etc. As the system expands some of these interconnections may not be needed anymore, because there are simpler connections at the outer end of the network, some depots were abandoned and bigger depots built etc. Therefore, every subway systems gets some ghost tunels and ghost stations, including the infrastructure objects.
Another possibility is that the tunels are built, then plans are changed and tunels have to be built another direction, so part of the original tunels is never used.
And there is also a possibility that some tunels are needed and busy during the contruction for work trains, but not needed anymore, when the subway line is finished.
I believe that if these were objects of the secret system, it would not be easy to photograph them — for a simple reason that it would not be possible to get there. A photograph on its own does not mean much, because it does not tell what is where. However, more important is the fact that unwanted visitors bring a risk of disclosing the exact tracing and other details — in particular with todays positioning systems.
Therefore, I have doubts that these photos show Metro Dva.
On the other hand, I believe that Metro Dva exists — it would be irresponsible from Russians, if they did not build it. They had the technology, and they had a coverage by the public Metro, so if they were serious about their country and its representatives, they had to build it (and other underground facilities).
