Work site barriers at Yläkartanontie removed

In the last two weeks of January, the work site barriers surrounding the technical shaft on Yläkartanontie at the Soukka metro station were removed on the forest side, and a permanent fence was installed. The barriers by the road remain in place. The dismantling and installation work does not affect circulation on Yläkartanontie.

The technical shaft on Yläkartanontie is intended for the smoke extraction, pressure equalisation and ventilation related to the operations of the Soukka metro station. The shaft building is tall, because possible additional construction in the area was taken into account in its construction. This means that the shaft building is required to be higher than its surrounding buildings, e.g. for smoke extraction purposes. The shaft structures will be landscaped to suit the environment during the final stage of construction.
