Track work by the Finnish Transport In­fra­struc­ture Agency in the summer – where and when?

In the summer, the Finnish Transport Infrastructure Agency will have track work done on several different railway sections in order to make sure that train traffic continues to be smooth and punctual. We have compiled information about the key track work affecting train traffic this summer in this news article.

Track work to be carried out on the main line

Between Ylivieska and Oulu, there will be traffic interruptions due to track maintenance on weekday nights from 3 June to 13 June and from 12 August to 22 August, which will cause changes and cancellations for some of the night train services.

Between Oulu and Rovaniemi, the track work involves renovating the railway superstructure and carrying out work on bridges, which is why we will replace day trains on the route with buses on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 24 June to 3 October.

Between Tampere/Parkano and Seinäjoki, switches are being replaced and work on the safety equipment is being carried out, which is why some of the day trains will be replaced by buses on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 12 August to 4 September. Due to the track work, we will also cancel the night trains departing on Mondays and Tuesdays between 12 August and 4 September.

Between Riihimäki and Tampere, maintenance work will be carried out from 5 August to 23 August, due to which some long-distance trains will be cancelled and some commuter trains will be replaced by buses.

At the beginning of August, there will be an eight-day traffic interruption between Jyväskylä and Pieksämäki, and in Kuopio

Traffic interruptions due to the Jyväskylä–Pieksämäki renovation project by the FinnishTransport Infrastructure Agency will start at the beginning of July. From 1 Julyto 31 October, we will replace trains on this route with buses on all weekday mornings, and from 1 August to 9 August, there will be an eight-day traffic interruption on the railway section.

On 17–18 August, the renovation project between Jyväskylä and Pieksämäki will cause some trains to be replaced by buses.

In Kuopio, the Finnish Transport Infrastructure Agency is renovating the railway yard and carrying out tunnel work, which will result in a traffic interruption from 1 August to 9 August. The work in Kuopio will also cause a 30-hour weekend traffic interruption on 22–23 June and a 40-hour traffic interruption on 12–14 July. The track work will lead to trains being replaced by buses on the route from Siilinjärvi to Pieksämäki/Jyväskylä.

Changes caused by track work in Turku

The Kupittaa–Turku railway project will cause trains to be replaced by buses on 2–3 August between Turku and Tampere.

The same railway project will also cause a traffic interruption between Turku and the Port of Turku from 28 July to 4 August. During this time, all trains from Tampere to the Port of Turku will be replaced by buses between Turku and the Port of Turku.

Due to the project, the Turku car-carrier station will be closed from 30 July to 4 August, which means that there will be no car-carrier trains arriving at or departing from Turku during this time.
