Technical characteristics:

As part of the overhaul, work was carried out on the redevelopment of the passenger area and the replacement of internal structures. Adaptation of the existing metro facility to the current norms. Existing materials and cladding elements are replaced with modern durable ones. Outdated water-removing umbrellas were replaced with modern ones. The escalators have also been renovated. Single-lamp fixtures located on the balustrade were replaced with modern energy-saving fixtures.

The entrance doors have become wider and now at rush hour, the crowd that used to stand outside the station will stand inside - at the turnstiles and escalators. Passenger traffic is 2,150,155 people.

In the cash hall, the project provides for the redevelopment of the cash desks, the rearrangement of the turnstile line and the transfer of dividing barriers. These measures make it possible to increase the passenger area when approaching the turnstiles in the lobby entrance area, redistribute the transit traffic areas and waiting areas at the ticket offices, as well as increase the area at the exit from the escalators, bringing it to the standard parameters.
