“The installation of mirror panels on both walls of the platform of the Klenovy Bulvar station of the Big Circle Line of the Moscow Metro is being completed”, said Andrey Bochkarev, Deputy Mayor of Moscow on Urban Planning and Construction.

Mosinzhproekt Group of Companies is a general designer and general contractor to build new lines and stations of the Moscow Metro.

“Installation of mirror panels between 2.5 and 3.2 metres high on the walls along the platform is being completed. Also, the platform ceiling is partially finished with reflective panels, which visually expands the space and enhances the lighting throughout the station”, said Andrey Bochkarev.

The Deputy Mayor noted that in addition to the mirrors, a suspended ceiling will be installed above the platform, which is made of aluminium three-layer panels with a decorative coating.

“The installation of this architectural element of the station is almost complete. The ceiling design is reminiscent of the silhouette of the ceremonial buildings of pre-Petrine Russia and refers, in particular, to the palace of Tsar Alexei Mikhailovich located not far from the prospective station”, said Andrey Bochkarev.

Yuri Kravtsov, General Director of Mosinzhproekt JSC, said that luminaires were mounted at the vessel along the stairs to illuminate the walls, and the ceiling had chandeliers in the form of closed circles, which were made under the individual project.

“The installation of aluminium honeycomb ceiling panels with luminaires inside is 98% complete. The suspended structure on the ceiling imitates a starry sky here. Flooring has been covered with dark granite, walls have been marble and cladded with honeycomb panels in the ticket hall”, added Yuri Kravtsov.

He also specified that Siberian and gabbro-diabase building granite was used to make the flooring at the station.

Yuri Kravtsov specified that work was now underway on the finishing of the underground distribution hall and exit, marble laying had been completed, the installation of the pavilion facades and kiosk ventilation systems were underway at the station, and the landscaping of the adjacent territory had started.

Recall that, in addition to the Klenovy Bulvar station, the eastern section of the Big Circle Line, which is 11 km long, includes the Nagatinsky Zaton, Pechatniki and Tekstilshchiki stations. Its commissioning will improve the transport accessibility for a number of districts in the south-east of Moscow.
