In the eighties was started a project to build a new station in the area of driving exist - "Leninskaya" (later renamed the station in the "Theatralnaya"). - Khreshchatyk.
Given the complexity of driving and failure to completely stop the motion was adopted by the construction of the station away from the existing tunnels.
Nevertheless, the movement was partially limited. Trains on both sides reached the station and the University of Khreshchatyk, respectively. A shuttled between two trains in one tunnel shuttle.
Soon after the plant construction was completed in 1987 and was opened to traffic through the new station. The old tunnels dismantled, partially closed and remodeled.
