Reinforcement work is currently in progress at the Urheilupuisto station site, and open excavation will begin in the pit in mid-May. The excavation work will continue until the end of 2013. The pedestrian and cycle path to the south of Esport Center will remain closed for the time being because of the open excavation and other construction work.
Unlike the other stations on the West Metro line, the Urheilupuisto station is being built on the cut-and-cover principle. Because of this, the pedestrian and cycle path to the south of Esport Center has been diverted to the north side. The original aim was to reopen the path while the work is still in progress, but this has been abandoned for the time being for safety reasons.
We regret the inconvenience caused to local residents by the worksite.
