New Metro Station University Opens in Tbilisi Today

The new, 23rd metropolitan station “University” opens in Tbilisi today. The project is financed by the Asian Development Bank, with construction works carried by the Spanish company Cobra Assignia. 

The expansion of the second metro line in Tbilisi, from Delisi towards the University, started in 1985 and was paused in 1993. In 2000 the Vaja-Pshavela station opened, where out of two parallel tunnels only one was functioning.

With the completion of the recent construction works, the second tunnel from Delisi to Vaja Pshavela metro stations will now be functioning, as reports. 

The first metro station in Tbilisi opened back in 1966.
