Tram routes to be diverted for Hämeentie redevelopment works and changes to routes in Maunula

The redevelopment of Hämeentie will cause major changes to tram services: there will be no tram service in Sörnäinen and trams 1, 6, 6T, 7 and 8 will be diverted to run via Kallio and Sturenkatu. The trams are set to return to Sörnäinen in early 2020. The redevelopment of Hämeentie is scheduled to be fully completed towards the end of 2020.

Buses will continue to run along Hämeentie and Mäkelänkatu throughout the works but there will be changes to stop locations as the works progress. The metro will run as usual, but there will be changes to the entrances to Sörnäinen Metro Station. In addition, the ticket hall roof at Sörnäinen Metro Station will be replaced.

Pipe and cable relocation works on Pirjontie in Maunula will affect in particular crosstown bus services in the area. Trunk route 550 as well as bus routes 51, 52, 63 and 552 will be diverted. The works will continue until summer 2020, after which the construction of a new light rail link will commence on Pirjontie, if the city councils of Helsinki and Espoo approve the new budget for the Jokeri Light Rail project.
