Länsimetro is building the Soukka metro station, which includes the Soukantori and Yläkartanontie entrances. The construction contract is being implemented by the consortium of YIT Rakennus Oy and Are 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.

Structural work at the station is being completed. The focus of the work is shifting to indoor construction phases and HVAC and electricity work. The first escalators were installed at the Soukka metro station in the Matinkylä–Kivenlahti section in early 2020.

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.
