Milestone reached in Helsinki tunnel excavation

28 Nov 12 Excavation work has met up for the Helsinki and Espoo tunnel sections of Helsinki metro’s extension to the west.

The two excavation sub-projects in the West Metro (Länsimetro) construction met last week at the Helsinki-Espoo border. 

Tunnel excavation began in 2010 in both Espoo and Helsinki. Now 71% – nearly 20km – of the tunnels has been excavated. The first tunnel construction work will begin in late 2012, and the West Metro is scheduled to go into service in late 2015.
