Lines[edit]

Is any Internet site as of this moment expecting there to be a time within the next 30 years when the orange line will be one of 2 or more lines of this metro?? Georgia guy 00:27, 28 December 2005 (UTC)

There have been plans on extending the current line to the west, as well as forking it to the north in the next 20 years. See the article. –Mysid 10:06, 3 May 2006 (UTC)

Distances between stations[edit]

It is pointless that the articles for the individual stations say "station B is approximately 1.922 kilometres from the station A, and 1.371 kilometres from station C". If the distance is given with one metre precision, it hardly is "approximate". And anyway, it is quite pointless to give the distance with one metre precion, without indicating where on the stationa are the reference points the distances refer to. (As if normal people even would be interested in that.) It would be best to just round all these figures up to 100 m precision. TorLillqvist (talk) 15:03, 3 December 2009 (UTC)

Vuosaari harbour[edit]

The information about Vuosaari harbour could probably do with clarifying. My own recollection is that just a single-line non-electrified link to the awaiting stub at the harbour (eg. allowing ballast trains to arrive via the Savio Rail Tunnel)—or are there now plans for full double-track/terminus extension of the metro to a new terminal station at the harbour? —Sladen (talk) 19:41, 31 July 2010 (UTC)

The main plan, if I remember correctly, is indeed just a non-electrified single line to the Harbour to replace the current link to the railway network. However, I do remember reading proposals of building an actual metro station to Vuosaari Harbour... but I've no memory of where I read this and therefore no recollection of the officiality of this proposal. — Kjet (talk · contribs) 10:53, 1 August 2010 (UTC)
