Track works are related to the Finnish Transport Agency's HELRA project

The Finnish Transport Agency’s project to improve the functionality and efficiency of Helsinki railway yard (HELRA) is part of the more
extensive development of the railway network in southern Finland. The project comprises reorganizing of the track layout at Helsinki railway yard so that it better meets the needs of the growing traffic volumes. The HELRA project aims to improve the efficiency of the Helsinki railway yard and reduce its vulnerability to disruptions. Upon completion, train capacity between Helsinki and Pasila can be increased from 74 trains to nearly 90 trains per hour, an increase of 200 trains per day. The estimated cost for the new layout of the railway yard is about 60 million euros. Construction planning will receive TEN-T financing. The project will be completed in 2020.

This is good for train travelers that Finnish Transport Agency's HELRA project is working on progress which is about to complete by this August 2018.
