With white square tiles placed in "square diamond" positions, Olkhovaya somewhat resembles Profsoyznaya metro station. The station's active hall (not on photo) has amber-like mosaic featuring "olkha" trees in autumn (with yellow/orange leaves).
The overground part of the station features paved roads and designer benches.
Role for "New Moscow" areasEdit
Said station is adjacent to Kaluzhskoe shosse highway and has a parking lot for the car users. Thanks to various bus stops (various routes available) highway bus riders can interchange to/from Moscow Metro without dealing with MKAD-related rush hour traffic jams.
- Unlike many other out-of-Moscow highways, Kaluzhskoe Shosse highway does not have a railroad "double" to offer an undisturbed public transport alternative to the highway disturbed by severely congested MKAD; nowadays, Line 1 serves as the alternative.
