Traffic interruption between Helsinki and Turku 24 June–28July 2024

Track work for the Finnish Transport Infrastructure Agency’s Espoo Rail Line project will cause a five-week traffic interruption on the Coastal Railway west of Leppävaara starting from 24 June. During the interruption, we will replace all long-distance trains between Helsinki and Turku with buses. The buses replacing long-distance trains will continue from Kupittaa to Turku Central Railway Station and, around the departure and arrival times of ships, also to the Port of Turku and vice versa. Train traffic between Tampere and Turku will run normally.

Commuter trains between Karjaa and Hanko will be normally run by train during the railway line interruption. However, the H-train's connection between Helsinki and Hanko, which runs three days a week, cannot be run by train during the work for the Espoo Rail Line project.
