Buses not running along Mannerheimintie on the mornings of 29-30 August due to an EU ministerial meeting – Major disruptions to traffic

Mannerheimintie will be closed to southbound buses from the Opera House on Thursday 29 August between 7am and 8.30am and on Friday 30 August between 7am and 8.30am due to an EU ministerial meeting taking place at the Finlandia Hall. Trams will run as usual.

On Thursday 29 August 7.30am to 9.30am, buses usually operating from Elielinaukio will depart from the Mäntymäki Field, which can be accessed from Elielinaukio by trams 1 and 2 and from Lasipalatsi by trams 4 and 10. The meeting is expected to cause traffic congestion in the western central city areas and across downtown Helsinki and people are advised to use commuter trains, the metro and crosstown bus routes where possible, as well as to allow extra time for their journeys in the morning.
