It will take at least a year to restore the appearance of the station and its waterproofing.

Repair work at the Dynamo metro station will be carried out without closing it to passengers and without stopping traffic. It is planned to start repairing leaks in the second quarter of 2022.

For 1.5 months, specialists from the Tunnel Association of Russia and builders studied the design of the station, investigated their reliability, searched for sources of leakage and checked the condition of the soil. This is necessary to select the optimal repair option.

Experts recognized the Dynamo metro station as safe for passengers. They identified several causes of leaks. Firstly, in recent years, large-scale construction has been carried out nearby, which has changed the flow and level of groundwater. Secondly, the very location of the station in water-saturated soils had an effect. And thirdly, it is important that the station was built 84 years ago, when there was no such waterproofing as there is now.

“We will strictly ensure that the contractor eliminates the causes of the leak during the repair process, and the work is done with high quality,” the source said. Department of Transport and Development of Road Transport Infrastructure of Moscow.
