Construction of one of the new stations being built to serve visitors to the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi has been completed at the mountain town of Krasnaya Polynana.

The new interchange will connect the Olympic village in Adler with the Alpica-Service resort, which will host a number of events.

Mostovik started work on the station in 2010.

The 15,000 square metre rail hub is expected to handle 8,500 passengers an hour at the peak of the competition next year.

The station, which is completed a period of testing, welcomed its first passengers last week when delegates arrived on one of the new Siemens-built Lastocka trains for the 8th International Rail Business Forum.
