Trams in Hakaniemi run along Hämeentie
The second phase of the tram stop renovation in Hakaniemi starts on Monday 17 June. The renovation continues at the tram stops on the Eläintarhanlahti side of the stop area and trams will switch to run along Hämeentie. The diversion routes will remain in place until the end of September.
From 17 June to 30 September, trams are not able to run from the Hakaniemi Market Square in the direction of Ympyrätalo and Porthaninkatu. Trams 1, 1A, 3B and 9 run along Hämeentie. All trams stop at the Hakaniemi Market Square side of the stop area. Please note that the stops can be accessed only from the south side.
Trams 3B and 9 run via Helsinginkatu and Läntinen Brahenkatu, from where they continue to their normal routes. There is a temporary pair of tram stops on Helsinginkatu, close to the Hämeentie junction.
Trams 1 and 1A run along Hämeentie to Mäkelänkatu.
There is no tram service in Kallio and on Sturenkatu. In addition, tram 9 will not serve Fleminginkatu and part of Aleksis Kiven katu. Bus 51 runs from Hakaniemi to Karhupuisto on weekdays and Saturdays.
There are no changes to the diversion routes of buses 23, 51 and 03N.
The diversion routes will remain in place until the renovation is completed, i.e. until the end of September.
