New Station of Nizhny Novgorod Metro Will Be Equipped With Video Surveillance System for World Cup 2018
Nizhny Novgorod will spend 14 billion rubles for the extension of subway line from station "Moskovskaya" to station "Strelka". To ensure the safety of passengers, the new station will have a number of facilities - rooms for baggage inspection, radio wave suppression system, video surveillance, and more.
It is reported that the start of construction works is scheduled for February next year. Project completion is scheduled for the first quarter of 2018.
