THE MOST UNUSUAL METRO IN THE WORLD
BY LEONID MULYARCHIK
Since 1984, in Lebedyan (320 km south from Moscow), Leonid Murlyanchik has been persistently building a metro line – alone. At first Leonid created a cooperative for this enterprise, with 166 people signing up, but knowing that the payment for the work is expected only after the subway will be built, all abandoned the work. The tunnel construction takes one day for 1 meter, three more days for the concrete casting of the walls and the arches. All the materials are bought from Leonid’s pension. He has all necessary documents and permits for the metro, built according to safety regulations.
