Concrete casting and element deliveries to begin in the Kaitaa metro station contract

Element installation and concrete casting will begin in the West Metro Kaitaa construction project during the week of 1 July. Work will be carried out at the future metro station’s Kaitaantie entrance (Kaitaantie 6) and at the provisional Iivisniemenkallio entrance (Hannuskallio 5) in the aboveground areas of the worksites.

The metro station’s load-bearing structures will be cast in concrete, and part of the concrete will be transported to the site as finished elements, and part as ready-mix concrete to be cast on site. The concrete work phase will increase worksite traffic – the concrete trucks will mainly take the Kaitaantie and Hannuskallio route.

Noisy work will be carried out during normal working hours from Monday to Friday between 7 am and 6 pm. Quiet work can also be carried out outside those hours. The transportation of concrete elements and concrete casting are estimated to last two months, starting during the week of 1 July.
