Tram routes 1 and 8 will resume serving Sörnäinen Metro Station from 4 May 2020

Trams 1 and 8 will start running via Helsinginkatu and the Sörnäinen Metro Station from 4 May. Trams 6T and 7 will continue to be diverted via Sturenkatu. In addition, there will be changes to the locations of bus stops by the Sörnäinen Metro Station.

The tram stop in the direction of Töölö is relocated to the Helsinginkatu side of the junction. The stop for northbound trams will be in the middle of the street, almost at the same place as before. Tram stops are relocated to opposite sides of the junction of Hämeentie and Helsinginkatu to improve the reliability of services and the operation of the stops. Contrary to previous information, trams 6T and 7 will continue to be diverted via Sturenkatu.

Stops for northbound buses will reopen at their original locations between Vilhonvuorenkuja and Kulmavuorenkatu but in the future, there will be only two stops. The southern stop will be used by northbound buses running along Mäkelänkatu, the northern stop by northbound buses running along Hämeentie. The bus stop in the direction of the city center will not be relocated.

Entrances to the Sörnäinen Metro Station are located in Vaasanpuistikko and in front of the buildings at Hämeentie 54 and Hämeentie 29. Both lifts at the station will be open from 4 May.

With the re-opening of tram tracks in Sörnäinen, the temporary tram stop by Urheilutalo on Helsinginkatu will be closed and the normal stops by Urheilutalo will reopen. However, the bus and tram stops on Porvoonkatu will remain closed because trams 3, 6T and 7 as well as bus 51 cannot use the stops without causing congestion. The stops will reopen when the number of trams running along Läntinen Brahenkatu is reduced.
