Construction on the Iivisniemenkallio shaft is moving forward

Construction at the Kaitaa metro station is proceeding, and construction work on the Iivisniemenkallio shaft will increase starting the week of March 18th. The Iivisniemenkallio entrance shaft is still provisional.

A large truck-mounted crane arrived at the entrance to the worksite on Thursday, 21 March. The shaft’s weather protection will be dismantled. Concrete-truck traffic near the site will increase due to the construction of the concrete structures, and a tower crane will be set up at the worksite. In addition, aggregates will be transported within the vicinity of the worksite, and prefabricated elements will be delivered to the site. Rock anchor drilling will take place inside the entrance shaft.

Work at the site will generally be carried out from Monday to Friday, between 7.00 am and 6.00 pm. Heavy traffic is routed from Kaitaantie to Hannuskalliontie, and from there to the worksite area.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused by the construction work.
