Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko took part in a solemn ceremony to inaugurate the Minsk metro third line that will span from the Kovalskaya Sloboda station to the Yubileinaya Ploshchad station on 6 November.

The head of state arrived at the Kovalskaya Sloboda station where he was welcomed by Minsk Metro Director Vladimir Sotnikov, Minskmetrostroy Director General Leonid Stukhalsky and other executives, as well as workers from the above-mentioned organizations.

In order to take part in the ceremony, Aleksandr Lukashenko reached the station via the fare gate using an electronic card given to him by the staff of the Minsk metro.

The Minsk metro handles more than 700,000 passengers a day, which is a third of the overall public transport ridership of Minsk. “The new line will help increase the passenger traffic of the metro as it will connect the southern and northern neighborhoods with the center of the capital,” Aleksandr Lukashenko pointed out.

More than 3,000 people were involved in the construction of the first section. The president thanked everyone who designed and built this facility for efficiency, high quality of work, compliance with modern standards, the beautiful design of the stations and the deep meaning behind it.
