“Work has been completed on the installation of architectural lighting on the platform of the reconstructed Varshavskaya station of the Big Circle Line of the Moscow Metro”, said Andrey Bochkarev, Deputy Mayor of Moscow on Urban Planning and Construction.

“During the Varshavskaya station reconstruction, work was fully completed on the renovation of the ceiling and wall light fixtures, custom-made LED structures and other electrical equipment. The architectural finishing of the station is now underway”, said Andrey Bochkarev.
The Deputy Mayor specified that the lighting was estimated to be 80% complete in two concourses of the station.
Yuri Kravtsov, General Director of Mosinzhproekt JSC, added that in addition to the installation of lighting equipment, granite flooring is being laid in both concourses.
“Walls are being cladded with marble, installation of metal perforated panels on the walls and cabling and wiring products is underway. The western concourse is more than two-thirds complete, the eastern concourse is 50% complete”, said Yuri Kravtsov.
The head of the engineering holding recalled that the western concourse is located on the Chongarskiy Boulevard side, while the eastern concourse provides access to the Varshavskaya platform of the Paveletsky suburban railway line.

The Kashirskaya and Varshavskaya stations of the former Kakhovskaya Line are being reconstructed to integrate them into the BCL. Kakhovskaya has been operating as part of the Big Circle Line since 2021.

Its complete reconstruction, in fact, new construction, integration into the BCL is underway”, said Sergei Sobyanin.
