Tram routes 7A and 7B replaced by bus in Pasila next summer

Tram routes 7A and 7B will be diverted 1 June - 30 August due to track work on Pasilankatu. Bus 7X serve the part of the route not served by the trams.

There will be no tram services on Pasilansilta and Länsi-Pasila. The tram 7A will be diverted to run from the Pasila station via Sörnäinen, Hakaniemi, Senate Square and Lasipalatsi to Meilahti (Kuusitie turnaround) and the tram 7B will run from Meilahti via Lasipalatsi, Senate Square, Hakaniemi and Sörnäinen to the Pasila station.

Bus 7X will run only in one direction along Pasilankatu, Kyllikinportti, Pasilanraitio, Pasilankatu and Pasilansilta from where it will continue along Ratapihantie, Savonkatu and Nordenskiöldinkatu to Mannerheimintie. The terminus of bus 7X in Länsi-Pasila will be at the Maistraatintori stop 0606 and in the city center at the Postikatu stop 2038.

The tram routes will be diverted because of construction work on Pasilankatu. A total of 2,000 meters of tram tracks will be moved on Pasilan silta, Pasilankatu, Palkkatilanportti and Kyllikinportti.

Once the works are completed, trams will run on Pasilankatu on a dedicated, elevated lane. The dedicated tram lane allows the trams to run unimpeded and without disruptions. The works are scheduled to be completed on 31 August 2015.

A bridge is constructed next to the existing Pasilan silta. The other tram lane will be constructed on the new bridge. The new lane is scheduled to be completed on 30 August 2015.All the works on Pasilan silta will be completed during 2016-2017.
