Jokeri 2 to be delayed by about a year

The implementation of the new crosstown trunk bus route Jokeri 2
has been postponed by about a year. Service on the route is now
scheduled to begin in autumn 2015.

The construction of the Paloheinä tunnel related to the
project will begin in spring 2013. Originally the construction was
scheduled to begin this spring. 

The delay is due to increased costs caused by solutions
chosen while planning the Paloheinä tunnel. Changes have been made
to the structure of the tunnel in order to keep the construction
costs within the budget of the original project plan.

Once completed, the route will run from Vuosaari via Malmi
station and Paloheinä to Myyrmäki. The route is about 25 kilometers
