Special Tracks for Wheel Trunks May Appear in Moscow Metro

Moscow metro's administration is now considering the possibility to equip stairs at the metro stations with special sloping tracks for suitcases and trunks with wheels. The lack of such tracks has recently become a big problem due to all-round spreading of various wheel trunks.

      In the first place it is planned to built such tracks on the stations placed near railway stations, airports an other big road interchanges. Currently only "Planernaya" and "Rechnoy Vokzal" metro stations have convenient attachments for carrying heavy suitcases.

      Though the tracks for baby carriages and wheelchairs are placed at almost all Moscow metro stations, they are not suitable for trunks. Along with the new tracks, metro's administration is also drawing up a project for making special lifts for passengers with limited possibilities, as wheelchairs tracks are not always very convenient and safe.
