Backfill work at Iivisniemenkallio entrance weeks 21–22

At the Iivisniemenkallio entrance worksite area at Kaitaa metro station, aboveground backfill work will start on Monday, 24 May 2021. The work will continue until the end of the week starting on 31 May. In the backfill work, the surface level of the worksite area will be raised by filling it with gravel. The work will increase truck traffic to Iivisniemenkallio. After the backfill, the surface will have a gravel finish.

The area’s worksite barriers will be removed during the summer. Permanent metal fences have already been installed at the some of the highest points. Some of the worksite barriers will remain around the worksite area until the end of the construction project.

The Kaitaa metro station includes the Kaitaantie entrance and the Iivisniemenkallio entrance option.

The Iivisniemenkallio entrance will not be taken into use when metro traffic from Matinkylä to Kivenlahti starts in 2023. Iivesniemenkallio also includes Kaitaa metro station’s technical shaft.



We apologise for any inconvenience caused by the backfill work.
