Länsimetro is building the Finnoo metro station, which includes the Finnoonsilta and Meritie entrances. The contract is being implemented by the consortium of GRK Infra Oy and Aki Hyrkkönen Oy. The construction project will be complete once the Matinkylä–Kivenlahti section is handed over to the traffic operator HKL in 2023. Additional information about the schedule for the entire project can be found in the Construction section of the website.

The construction contract for the Finnoo station started in October 2018, and the excavation contract for the station and the rail tunnels was completed in August 2018. Structural work is currently under way everywhere in the station and at the Finnoonsilta entrance. The installation of prefabricated elements and HVAC and electricity installations are currently under way.

The metro tunnel shafts are located at intervals of approximately 600 metres and extend to ground level. They serve as an emergency exit, a smoke vent, a pressure equalisation system and a ventilation system. The stations have their own shafts. Read more about the shafts.
The metro is being built on residents’ and nature’s terms – read more.
