Floor renovation work at the Koivusaari Metro Station has been completed and the station reopens for passengers on 6 August. The station will open at the start of the service on Thursday morning. The first service from Koivusaari towards Vuosaari will depart on Thursday 6 August at 5.21am. Similarly to the other schedules in August, the timetables for all Metro services from Koivusaari are already available in the Journey Planner.
Cracks were detected in the platform surface material and the flooring material was replaced during the floor renovation work. Renovation of the floor proceeded according to plan. In June, the old floor was demolished, while ensuring the smooth flow of Metro services during dusty demolition work. After Midsummer, the installation of new floor material began in the platform area. During the renovation work, post-Illuminated signal strips serving the visually impaired that are already in use on the West Metro were installed at the station. The work was completed at the end of July and was carried out by Länsimetro Oy. Here is a link to our previous article about the stages of the renovation.
There will also be other changes in the Metro services and the Lauttasaari area at the beginning of August. At the beginning of the winter timetable season on 10 August, the Metro will start operating longer at peak-time headways, and at the same time new bus routes will be launched in the Lauttasaari area.
