With the closure of Maarintie in September, vehicle traffic will mainly re-routed via Tekniikantie and Tietotie. In the case of Tietotie and Tekniikantie, drivers should prepare for longer commute times, especially during the morning and afternoon rush hours.

The walking and cycling routes will remain on Maarintie throughout the construction, but the routes on the east side of the street will vary according to the work involved.

Car parks near Maarinranta are accessible throughout the construction.

The estimated duration of this phase is from September 2019 to June 2020.

Parking at Konemiehentie

Konemiehentie will be closed to vehicles in mid-August. Part of the Konemiehentie car park will be converted into a construction site and parking spaces will be closed. From Maarintie, the car park is accessible via a temporary junction, resulting in the removal of estimated 8 parking spaces. At Konemiehentie, the pedestrian and cycling routes will remain in use during construction. As work progresses, the pedestrian and cycling routes will run on either side of Konemiehentie, depending on the stages of construction.

Intermittent lane changes at Tietotie 

Preparations for the roadwork will begin after mid-July at Tietotie. Municipal engineering will be renewed on the Tietotie from August onwards. Construction work will begin on the east side of Tietotie in August with water and cable pipelines and will continue on the west side of the street as work progresses.
