The Kurenivsko-Chervonoarmiyska Line ("Ukrainian: Куренівсько-Червоноармійська лінія, Kurenivs'ko-Chervonoarmiys'ka liniia), is the second line of the "Kiev Metro, first opened in 1976, it extended northwards along the right bank of the Dnieper river and began deviating from the river towards the southwest. As the current stations were built in the 1970s and 1980s, architecturally the line shows some of the best examples of late-Soviet architectural features. It is generally coloured blue on the maps.
The line is served by the Obolon' (#2) depot. Presently 32 five-carriage trains are assigned to it.
Recent developments and future plans
A major extension of the line to the southwestern regions of "Holosiiv and "Teremky has long been planned since the 1980s, however due to the difficult conditions under the "Lybid River and financial shortages, all work was frozen in the early 1990s and the completed sections were flooded.
Resumed in 2002, the project will conclude of seven stations and should be finished by 2020. Demiyivska, Holosiivska and Vasylkivska were opened 15 December 2010; after a delay of two years because of lack of funds. Vystakovyi Tsentr was opened 27 December 2011. The second stage included the stations "Ipodrom and "Teremky which brought the line along the Akademika Glushkova avenue past the Kiev Ring Road. Initially planned opening for these two was foreseen for 2012; but Ipodrom was opened on 25 October 2012 and Teremky was opened on 6 November 2013.
The final stage may finish with the station Odeska and a new depot nearby. A considered option is a two station branch after Ipodrom northwards to two further stations: Avtovokzal Teremky and Vulytsia Kreisera Avrory.
