Yekaterinburg Underground to Get 10 More Metal Detectors

20 April 2018 (09:40)

UrBC, Yekaterinburg, April 20, 2018. Ten more metal-detecting appliances are currently being installed at Yekaterinburg Underground stations. This is expected to halve the congestion-related human traffic in ticket desk areas next to the security zones during rush hours, Counselor to Underground Director for Transport Safety Oleg Drozdov said at a press briefing today.

According to Drozdov, the new appliances are made in Russia and have been certified for compliance with all the transport safety requirements; these will get installed in Square 1905, Geologicheskaya, Prospekt Kosmonavtov, and Botanicheskaya Stations.

‘The metal detectors were purchased in order to speed up the security checks and avoid overcrowding at ticket desk locations. We bough ten security gates for RUR 291,000 each; these will get installed in sets of two in five security checkpoints. The old appliances will get dismantled and then reinstalled at other stations, which means every security checkpoint in every station will get an additional security gate,’ Drozdov said.

According to Drozdov, the new equipment will have been assembled by the end of today.
