Tashkent Metro

Tashkent Metro consists of three lines: Chilonzor line with 12 stations, Ozbekiston line with 11 stations and Yunusobod line with 6 stations. Its line length is over 38 km and the total length of tracks and tunnels amounts to more than 80 km. There are 29 stations, 204 cars, 2 depots and one workshop which provides maintenance and production of spare parts.

The metro is a complex transport system which applies the latest technologies including an automated train control system, an automated speed control system, a centralised train operations control and the systems controlling power supply, ventilation, pumps, escalators etc.

The rolling stock has a life cycle of 35-40 years thanks to maintenance activities and regular checks by highly qualified workers who upgrade their skills on a regular basis.

In March, 2000, Tashkent Metro opened its workshop which does maintenance and production of spare parts. This workshop provides the overhaul of 48 cars per year, 36 of which are lifted and the maintenance of motors and 50-60 pairs of wheel sets per year.

To improve the passenger service Tashkent Metro is constantly developing. In October 2001, the first line section of Yunusobod line came into passenger operation. It featured 7,6 km and 6 stations connecting the city centre with a big residential area. The line crosses the other two metro lines which provides for easy interchanges.

The introduction of new equipment, the modernisation of the system and the decrease of the manual labour are the principal topics on the agenda of Tashkent Metro. The Metro is introducing German Zonnenschein batteries, adopting batteryless emergency power supply for the signaling systems, replacing horizontal pumps with immersible ones, installing radio emitting cables and digital telephone systems and introducing power consumption control systems.

Tashkent Metro is working in close collaboration with research institutes and research and manufacturing associations of the Republic of Uzbekistan.

Tashkent Metro is the only metro system in the CIS that conducts reliable operations in the seismic area and provides good conditions for passengers even in the warm months by cleaning and humidifying the air.

The state of any equipment and facilities deteriorates after decades of operations. Tashkent Metro introduces new equipment, improves maintenance and cuts the costs by producing spare parts in-house.

The metro specialists are constantly looking for ways of introducing new developments.

The Signaling Department of Tashkent Metro has equipped all stations with radio information systems, the Chilonzor depot has recorded passenger information messages, the Track Department has purchased new RDM-22 and RDM-33 rail crack detectors, Ozbekiston depot has made a simulator for teaching train drivers to cope with emergency situations on 81-714, 81-717 stock trains.
