Itäväylä and Hermannin rantatie to return to their former routes at Kalasatama
The Itäväylä highway, which has been temporarily rerouted due to construction work on the Kalasatama Centre, namely REDI, will be restored in stages to its former route from 9 p.m. on Wednesday, 9 August 2017. Hermannin rantatie will also be opened to traffic from 1 September 2017.
Vehicle traffic will return to the straightened Itäväylä in the following stages:
The cycling and pedestrian routes running from the Kulosaari bridge to southern and northern parts of Kalasatama will remain as now until spring 2018. Changes may be made to cycling and pedestrian routes due to intense construction activity at Kalasatama.
The Itäväylä highway will run in a covered space at the REDI construction site in Kalasatama. During the autumn, traffic may be stopped at the site now and then to due construction work, but the interruptions will be short.
Maps showing the traffic arrangements can be found on the SRV website, at the address: https://www.srv.fi/tyomaa/redi/liikkuminen
REDI, implemented by SRV at Kalasatama, Helsinki, will comprise the inner city’s largest shopping and experience centre as well as eight tower buildings. Below the centre will be a 2,000-space parking facility, usable by both the towers’ residents and the shopping centre’s customers. Construction work at REDI, Finland’s largest urban construction project, was launched in spring 2015 and is expected to continue until 2023. The shopping centre will open as a complete unit in autumn 2018. www.redi.fi
