“The project is an excellent continuum to AFRY’s tram projects which make cities even better to live in.”

The development phase is set to start next month when the final scope of the project will be determined. The decision to advance to the implementation phase will be made in early next year.

The new tram line is expected to begin operations from 2024 to further bolster Helsinki’s light rail network.

HKL Project Manager Mikko Asikainen said: “The project supports city development and expands the network of sustainable mobility. I welcome everyone to this joint project journey from Kalasatama to Pasila.”
