Länsimetro is building the Kivenlahti metro station, which includes the Kivenlahdentie and Kivenlahdentori entrances. The construction contract is being implemented by Skanska Infra 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 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.
