Itäväylä vehicle traffic to Pasila to return to former route at Kalasatama
Vehicle traffic travelling to Pasila along the Itäväylä highway will be transferred to the straightened Itäväylä from 23.45 p.m. on 16 August 2017. Vehicle traffic travelling from the city centre and Pasila towards the east will continue, at this stage, to follow the detour on the south side of the REDI construction site.
The return of the Itäväylä highway in stages to its former route began around a week ago. The highway has been temporarily rerouted due to construction work on the Kalasatama Centre, namely REDI. The final stage will start on 1 September 2017, when vehicle traffic travelling from the city centre and Pasila towards the east will return to its former location on the straightened Itäväylä, and Hermannin rantatie will be opened to traffic.
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.

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
