Board of Länsimetro Oy, summary of decisions 23 August 2018

The Board of Länsimetro convened on 23 August. A status update on construction of the second phase, Matinkylä–Kivenlahti, and a progress report on construction contract procurements were presented to the Board. In general, the project is progressing according to the target schedule and cost targets.

The Board of Directors decided on the creation of separate contracts.

Status updates of 6 August 2018 on the maintenance and servicing of the first phase of the West Metro, the Ruoholahti–Matinkylä section, were presented to the Board. HKL shall report to Länsimetro Oy on the use of the track and stations and the related service and maintenance tasks as agreed.

Project communications were presented to the Board in the autumn of 2018. The focus of such communications is to provide updates on the progress of construction, especially for those living and operating in the affected area, as excavation gives way to construction work.  Communications on the project will also take more detailed account of various stakeholder groups.

The next meeting will be held on 13 September.
