Excavation of Iivisniemenkallio entrance begins

Excavation of the Iivisniemenkallio entrance to the Matinkylä-Kivenlahti section of the Länsimetro will begin at the Kaitaa work site in week 34. This work only concerns one of the station’s entrances – the excavation of the other, on the Kaitaantie side, will begin soon, in week 35.

Excavation work phases include boring, charging, and removing rock material. This excavation is a surface-level excavation of a shaft, which will create noise in the surrounding environment. Boring work will be carried out on weekdays between 7.00 – 18.00, and signals will be sounded to warn of explosions in advance.

The excavation of the shaft is expected to last 2-3 weeks.
