Once completed, Jokeri Light Rail will primarily follow the same route as the current trunk bus route 550. During peak hours, many of the construction sites have as many as over 60 buses per hour driving past them.… Lue
Jokeri Light Rail is a light rail connection to be constructed from Helsinki’s Itäkeskus to Espoo’s Keilaniemi.
It will replace trunk line 550 in the early 2020s.… Lue
Unfortunately, construction sites always disturb their immediate environment somewhat. However, the common disturbances caused by the construction of a light rail line are no different from regular street construction.… Lue
The construction sites will be designed to be safe and easy to traverse. The disturbances (such as the noise and dust) caused by the construction site will be minimised.… Lue
Unfortunately, construction work always causes some noise and vibration disturbances to the immediate environment.
We will carry out the construction according to the permits granted by the environmental authority, and we will also measure the noise levels, when necessary.… Lue
Yes, we will work at night when it is considered necessary. We will inform residents separately regarding night work via the communication channels of Jokeri Light Rail and bulletins distributed to the nearby properties.… Lue
