Moscow Metro Station Signifier prototype at Chkalovskaya

Purpose: The purpose of this product is to work as a long distance signifier, helping users to identify the precise location of Metro entrances. Route line colours are also shown as a secondary function to highlight which Metro lines are accessible from any given entrance — thicker rings denote direct access to line from this entrance; thinner rings denote indirect access to line via connected transfer station.

Location: The Metro Station Signifier will be located at all entrances and exits to the Metro system. This includes all entry points to underpasses connected to a below ground Metro entrance.

Types: The signifier should always be back-lit wherever possible. However the nature of the entrance environment will determine additional build type attributes. These include post-mounted, roof mounted, and wall-mounted variants. Further build types may be required for future schemes to be determined through placement planning at additional stations.
