Overhaul is carried out every 10-12 years, average – once every five to seven years. This guarantees the reliability, stability and safety of the equipment.

Last year, the metro was repaired 143 escalators, said the Deputy Mayor of Moscow for Transport Maxim Liksutov

He noted that the task of the Moscow transport complex is to ensure that the entire metro infrastructure meets the most modern safety and reliability requirements. More than a thousand escalators are monitored by special equipment. But after a certain time, any equipment needs periodic repairs, which are carried out at different stations.

According to Maxim Liksutov, the requirements for the maintenance of the Moscow metro infrastructure are among the most stringent in the world. Overhaul is carried out every 10-12 years, average – once every five to seven years. This guarantees the reliability, stability and safety of the equipment. The work is carried out so as not to interfere with traffic: during repairs, passengers can use neighboring escalators or escalators of transitions of adjacent stations.

Overhaul took place on 46 escalators at 26 stations. Specialists have replaced guides, steps, traction chains, electrical and mechanical equipment, as well as their units, main drive shafts with emergency brakes. All these mechanisms ensure the safety of the smooth movement of the staircase.

Medium repair is not so large-scale and does not last long – individual details of steps, mechanisms and escalator balustrades are changed. Such work took place at 47 stations, where 97 escalators were repaired.
