Government will pay $35m for new Yerevan Metro station – Mayor

PanARMENIAN.Net - The Armenian government will provide $35 million for the construction of a new subway station in the north of Yerevan, mayor Hayk Marutyan said Monday, September 14.

Marutyan noted that they initially intended to involve the private sector to ease the burden on the government but none of the terms set by any company were in the interests of the city or the state, Aysor.am reports.

"A tender for the project is being worked out at the moment, which will cost about $35 million," the mayor said.

Inaugurated in 1981, the Yerevan Metro currently serves 10 stations, with the city hoping to add more stops in the coming years.
