The main equipment such as escalators, elevators, power supply systems of stations and railway lines, as well as tunnel and station ventilation are built inside country and are produced, installed and commissioned with the highest available standards. We can also mention the simultaneous operation of air conditioning system of station and office spaces, water fire extinguishing system, telecommunication system and the video surveillance of the station.

This station is the deepest station of line 6 and its excavation has been done using goat horn method. Due to dome-shaped roof of passenger spaces, a false ceiling was avoided in this station, and station roof and wall are exposed concrete, which is unique in its kind. Also, in passenger platform and passenger transfer galleries, using colored composite sheets, a different and happy atmosphere is provided to the passengers. In the eastern entrance gallery, creating an exhibition space on the wall and special lighting has created a special visual effect.
