Moscow tram running
Works have begun to restore the tram line on Trifonovskaya Street in the centre of the city. It is hoped that the project will be completed by 2025. 
The three kilometre section of track is set to be completely replaces with new rails and sleepers. A new section of track is to be built on Gilvarovskogo Street with a turnaround loop at Rizhskiy Station and will be served by low-floor trams. 
With the return of trams to Trifonovskaya Street, reliable transport will become available to more than 70,000 people who live and work in this area of the line. Due to convenient transfers and minimal intervals, travel time will be reduced and trips will be more comfortable,' said Maksim Liksutov, the Deputy Mayor of Moscow for Transport. 
Tram traffic on Trifonovskaya Street was closed in 1995, but the tracks were not dismantled. Instead a bus service replaced the tram. 
About 500 trams operate daily on the city's tram network and carries about 700,000 passengers on weekdays.
