For passenger convenience, markings that indicate where train carriage doors open have been introduced at 26 Moscow Central Circle (MCC) stations. Bright yellow markings on the platform show where the doors open, while special pictogrammes show passengers the way to carriages equipped with wheelchair and bicycle restraint systems.
“At passenger request, we are introducing these yellow markers,” said Maxim Liksutov, Deputy Mayor of Moscow and Head of Moscow’s Department of Transport and Road Infrastructure Development. “They can now save time when boarding trains by standing where the train doors open. The bright colour makes it obvious for passengers; especially those who are visually impaired.”
The platform markings have been introduced at the following MCC stations:
— Delovoi Tsentr;
— Ploshchad Gagarina;
— Verkhniye Kotly;
— Shosse Entuziastov;
— Botanichesky Sad;
— Bulvar Rokossovskogo;
— Sokolinaya Gora;
By the end of August, the city will mark the platforms at all MCC stations, including Vladykino, Nizhegorodskaya, Novokhokhlovskaya, Likhobory and Okruzhnaya stations.
The city is also planning to upgrade the navigation signs at all 31 MCC stations. Backlit signs will replace simple panel signage, including system maps. Backlit signs have already been installed at Luzhniki station. The navigation signs will be fully replaced by the end of summer. Station names will also be shown in English on the new signs.
