When the lighting system is installed, video surveillance systems and an automated fare collection system will be mounted

“Installation of architectural lighting systems is carried out at the Kakhovskaya station under reconstruction, which will be part of the Big Circle Line (BCL) of Moscow Metro after completion”, said Andrey Bochkarev, Deputy Mayor of Moscow on Urban Planning and Construction. Mosinzhproekt Engineering Holding is a general designer and general contractor to construct new lines and stations of the Moscow metro.

“Work is underway over the central part of the platform to install 10 suspended light structures and 41 LED fixtures. Along the passenger drop-off zone there will be installed 60 suspended LED fixtures – 30 on each side”, said Andrey Bochkarev.

According to him, the lighting fixtures embedded in the 44 columns of the platform part will give an additional space volume at the station as envisioned by the architects.

“The lighting fixtures installed in the columns will create a portal effect at the interchange zone to the Sevastopolskaya station of the Serpukhovsko-Timiryazevskaya Line, as well as expand the space of the station visually,” said Andrey Bochkarev.

For his part, Yuri Kravtsov, General Director of Mosinzhproekt JSC, added that the cladding of the station, as well as the installation of modern fire extinguishing and general ventilation systems, are taking place here at the same time.

“When the lighting system is installed at the station, video surveillance systems and an automated fare collection system will be mounted,” explained the head of the holding.

The Big Circle Line of the Moscow Metro is a flagship mega project of the Moscow metro: its length will be 70 km with 31 stations, 12 of which are already open to passengers. The input of nine new stations and the one under reconstruction, Kakhovskaya, is scheduled for this year.
