Mannerheimintie will be closed to southbound buses from the Opera House on Tuesday 24 September about 7.30am to 9am due to an EU ministerial meeting taking place at the Finlandia Hall. Trams will be running between the Opera House and Lasipalatsi as usual.
Tuesday morning 24 September Buses usually operating to Elielinaukio will run to/from the Mäntymäki Field, which can be accessed by trams 1, 2, 4 and 10 from the Lasipalatsi stop. Buses to Kamppi will run via Runeberginkatu instead of Mannerheimintie approximately 8am to 9am.
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.
