1968 USSR Study for Beirut Metro

Jan 18, 2016



  This is just to answer the recurring question that I get about the possibility of constructing an underground, subway, metro, u-bahn in Beirut or any form of reliable, clean, safe public transport. This is just one of many studies that have been done and put in the drawer for the many reasons we all know. I thought it would be interesting to share this with everyone. I was particularly impressed with the graphics (Hand drawn) and the main transport corridors which have not changed for the past 50 years in our city. It is important to note that engineering is never the problem with such projects.USSR commissioned a study for "The evaluation of the possibility and necessity of the organization of the metropolitan (METRO) for the city of Beirut"By Nabil Nakkash, read more on LinkedIn Pulse.
