Water leaked to the technical facilities of the Aalto University station during sprinkler testing – no impact on the introduction of the metro

On Tuesday, 25 April, water leaked to the lowest-level passage at the Aalto University station of the west metro. There was a few centimetres of water in the technical facilities below the platform, which did not cause any hazards. The premises used by the public are located more than four metres above these facilities.

Water leaked to the station when the sprinkler system was tested.

The Länsi-Uusimaa Rescue Department vacuumed the water during the same day, and final cleaning will be performed in the technical facilities of the station on Wednesday, 26 April.

The leaking of water to the station does not affect the introduction of the west metro.
