At the Kashirskaya station of the Big Circle Line of the Moscow Metro, the installation of restored decorative bas-relief panels on the theme “Life of the Country” was completed, said Andrei Bochkarev, Deputy Mayor for Urban Planning Policy and Construction.
“All artistic compositions made of sheet aluminum alloy took their places on the track walls. Eight panels were mounted – four each in two platform halls. The compositions “Power Line”, “Planets and Satellite”, “Houses and Subway”, “Hydroelectric Station” are mirrored to each other, the size of each panel is 4.2 by 1.2 m,” Bochkarev said.
He recalled that the panels were created by the sculptor Zoya Vetrova in 1969.
“The reconstruction of Kashirskaya for inclusion in the Big Metro Ring implies the preservation of the historical appearance of the station. The decorative panels have undergone restoration, in which their authenticity is preserved as much as possible,” the deputy mayor added.
For his part, Yury Kravtsov, General Director of JSC Mosinzhproekt, said that, in general, the finishing work at the station is nearing completion.
“In the western vestibule of Kashirskaya, work on the lining of the passenger area has been completed, and the finishing of technical and office premises continues,” he said.
According to him, in the eastern lobby, the old equipment is being dismantled and the passenger area is being refurbished.
