Moscow metro may exploit foreign rails

Moscow authorities are considering exploiting Japan or Austria produced rails in building Moscow metro, says the Construction Department of Moscow in its press-release.

Such necessity was caused by closing for reconstruction the main rails supplier for Moscow metro JSC “Kuznetsky Integrated Iron-and-Steel Works”. The reconstruction may last for more than two months.

Moscow metro has an experience of exploiting foreign rails. In 2011 two kilometers of foreign rails were put, in 2012 another fourteen kilometers were set.

Average life of Russia-produced rails R65 is 12 years, R50 is 9 years. Both Japanese and Austrian rails’ average life is 22 years. At that foreign rails cost 1,5 times more than Russian.
