Länsi-Uusimaa Rescue Department will be testing the operation of the smoke curtains installed for the duration of the construction works and the effectiveness of smoke extractors between Matinkylä and Finnoo at 8.00 pm on Thursday, 20 December. The tests will take approximately two hours.
There may be rescue vehicles on site during the tests, and artificial smoke may drift out of the tunnel via the shaft on Suomenlahdentie. The smoke is harmless, and sightings of it do not need to be reported to emergency services.
Smoke curtains are used to increase site safety during the construction works.
