Track works cause traffic back-ups in Kaisaniemi

Also motorists, cyclist and pedestrians are advised to be prepared for diversions and traffic back-ups due to the track works from 4 to 17 July.

Motorists are advised to use other routes if possible.

Car traffic: From the direction of Kaisaniemenranta and Siltasaarenranta, compulsory direction of travel is to the right. The street narrows to one lane here and there.

Cyclists and pedestrians: Pedestrian crossings are closed next to the construction site and cyclist and pedestrians should use the pedestrian crossings nearby.

The track replacement works on Unionkatu and Kaisaniemenkatu are a continuation of the works conducted last summer. The works are commissioned by Helsinki City Transport and the contractor is Lemminkäinen.

The contractor apologizes for any inconvenience caused by the works.
