Helsinki City Transport HKL will commence the refurbishment of Mellunmäki Metro Station on 15 February. The roof above the platform area, floors and facade will be replaced. Lighting will also be improved and fixtures and fittings such as benches will be refurbished. New glass surfaces and skylights will allow more natural light into the platform area.
The station will remain accessible for all passengers
The metro station and both of the entrances will remain open throughout the works. There will be changes to access routes to and at the station as the works progress. Parts of the platform area and access routes to the platforms will be closed, for example, for tiling works.
