Initially the new diameter had to be ready by the middle of 2019, but due to delays, the first 8 km will be released - from Vladimir Vazov Blvd to Krasno Selo. Its trains have automatic speed-controlled steering, energy-saving, and have an automatic video transmission system in the driver's cab. There is also a possibility to move the train without a driver.
