Länsimetro is building the Soukka metro station, which includes the Soukantori and Yläkartanontie entrances and technical buildings. The construction contract is being implemented by the consortium of YIT Rakennus Oy and Are Oy. The Soukka metro station will be opened for traffic simultaneously with the other stations during 2023.
Information about moving around at the station
Both entrances will likely be opened to passengers when the metro service starts. The City has plans to develop the Soukantori neighbourhood, among other things, which means that construction work in the area may affect the use of the Soukantori entrance.
Direct lift and escalator access is provided from the Yläkartanontie entrance to the platform.
Direct lift access is provided from the Soukantori entrance’s Soukka shopping centre level to the platform level.From the Soukantie road level, passengers first take the stairs or a lift to access the Soukantori square level.
When the metro service starts, 350 park and ride spaces will be available for bicycles.
When the metro service starts, 28 temporary park and ride spaces will be available for cars.
