Changes in excavation times at the Niittykumpu metro worksite: Saturday blasting to begin on 6 April
YIT is currently excavating the site of the Niittykumpu metro station and the adjacent twin tunnels.
According a decision issued by the Uusimaa Centre for Economic Development, Transport and the Environment, drilling may be done at weekends, and blasting work may be carried out in the tunnels on weekdays (Monday to Friday) between 07.00 and 22.00, and also on Saturdays between 07.00 and 22.00. However, blasting will be avoided as far as possible on Saturday mornings between 07.00 and 09.00.
Saturday blasting will begin on 6 April 2013. Saturday blasting will allow the work to be completed more quickly. Because of the rotation of work phases, it may be that blasting will not be required every Saturday.
Excavation at the Niittykumpu worksite will continue until the end of 2013. The West Metro will be finally completed in 2015.
