The walls and floor are laid with granite and marble in the concourse
“On the platform of the reconstructed Kashirskaya station of the Big Circle Line (BCL) of the Moscow Metro, new letters of the name are installed”, 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.
“Reconstruction of Kashirskaya provides, in particular, updating the elements of artistic design of the station. New stainless steel letters 30 centimetres high were mounted on the platform. In addition, four of the eight restored historical stamped panels have taken their places on the track walls”, said Andrey Bochkarev.
He specified that the laminar aluminum alloy compositions “Power Line”, “Planets and Satellite”, “Houses and Metro” and “Hydroelectric Power Plant” will be placed mirrored to each other. The panel was created in 1969 by sculptor Zoya Vetrova.
Yuri Kravtsov, General Director of Mosinzhproekt JSC, recalled that once the reconstruction is completed, the Kashirskaya station will operate as part of the Big Circle Line and the Zamoskvoretskaya Line.
“Work on the tracks of the operating green line is carried out during the night shifts. Previously, the laying of marble on the platform area was completed, the lining work continues in the western concourse of the station”, specified Yuri Kravtsov.
The head of the engineering holding added that the walls and floor are laid with granite and marble in the concourse, as well as the facade subsystem of the concourse is being installed: thermal insulation boards and wind protection.
The Varshavskaya and Kashirskaya stations of the former Kakhovskaya Line are being reconstructed to integrate them into the BCL. The Kakhovskaya station is already operating as part of the BCL.
The construction of the Big Circle Line is the main project of the Moscow Metro construction. Its length will exceed 70 km, and it will accommodate 31 stations, 22 of which are already servicing the passengers.
