The role of “Minskmetroproekt” in solving transport problems of the Belarusian capital is indisputable. The company became a pioneer of the new road in Minsk – underground. Today the Minsk subway carries more than a third of all the capital passengers, and by all standards, norms and parameters applied to facilities of this type, is recognized as one of the most comfortable and safest in the world. This is a kind of “ring” unifying man and the city. To avoid damaging the architectural ensemble of Minsk, tunneling and stations construction were carried out with a high degree of reliability and accuracy. There is one construction mode, characteristic for Minsk – station space zoning into transport and passengers areas. But it doesn’t level the stations architecture, on the contrary – it combines a variety of colors and interior plastic solutions.
