Baku Metro plans to fully restore the station "Icheri Sheher" till September 20. It has been closed to install new escalators, a source in Baku Metro said.
"At present, new escalators made in Germany will be launched. The station is planned to operate from September 15-16. The station will be fully restored by September 20," a source said.
A source said that final operations are underway, in particular, work to restore aesthetic state of the station.
The cost of three escalators made in Germany bought by Metro is worth $5 million, a source said.
The Baku metro functions since 1967 (from Icheri Sheher station to Nariman Narimanov station with three intermediate stations). Seven stations of the Baku metro, including Icheri Sheher, Sahil, 28 May, Jafar Jabbarli, Khatai, Nizami and Elmler Akademiyasi, are deep-laid stations with Bakmil being surface and the rest -shallow-laid (altogether 21 stations).
