ⓘ Volgograd Metrotram

The Volgograd Metrotram is a light rail system operating in Volgograd, Russia. It consists of 22 stations on one line, paralleling the Volga River from the northern suburbs of Volgograd to its city core for a total length of 17.3 kilometres. The Volgograd Metrotram was inaugurated on 5 November 1984, and had served 50 million passengers per year at the time the 2011 extension was opened.

Most of the Metrotram line shares a surface-level right of way with a previously constructed railway line for 10.2 kilometres 6.3 mi, in a manner similar to that of the south leg of the C-Train system in Calgary, for example. Five city center stations, on the other hand, were built underground in two sections opened in 1984 and 2011, over a total length of 6.8 kilometres 4.2 mi, meeting design standards consistent with existing Russian metro systems.


1. Traffic

The Volgograd metrotram normally use right-hand running, with left-hand traffic on the underground section between TRK Europa City Mall and Pionerskaya. This was done to enable unidirectional vehicles to use island platforms. However, on the new underground section between Pionerskaya and Yelshanka operate exclusively bidirectional vehicles, with right-handed traffic and doors on the both sides.
