Construction of Jokeri Light Rail 75% complete – rail construction progressing ahead of schedule

The construction of Jokeri Light Rail has proceeded ahead of schedule. The rapid pace of construction now means that the light rail line can start operating about five months earlier than planned, i.e. early 2024. The construction in the Espoo section will mostly be finished in 2021.

Of the construction of Jokeri Light Rail, 75 per cent is now completed. We reached the milestone of three quarters at the end of October 2021. Rail construction has progressed ahead of schedule, and 21 kilometres of the 25-kilometre rails are now finished. 

The original target was having completed 20 kilometres of the rails by the end of 2021. Expectations were exceeded thanks to successful resourcing, coordination of schedules, and developing working methods. Most of the construction in the Espoo section will be completed in 2021, while the construction of the Keilaniemi terminus will continue in 2022. The installation of the overhead cables and finishing touches both on the line and the power supply stations will continue in Espoo in 2022.

In 2023, we will add the finishing touches to the Jokeri Light Rail worksites. We will also run commissioning tests and test traffic. The operation on the light rail should start in January 2024.
