Track work

Track work


Finland’s railway network comprises 6,000 kilometres of railways – an amazing distance. For trains to run smoothly and on time, the tracks must be replaced and improved from time to time. In spite of track work, we will always take you all the way to your destination. Wherever possible track work is arranged outside peak travel times.
This page contains information about track work in the near future, how it will affect rail traffic as well as the information on transport substituting the trains.

You will find the train and bus timetables during the exceptional arrangements due to track work either in the timetable search or the search in the Online Shop. Train tickets bought in advance are valid for the replacement buses according to the timetable on the ticket.
