Track work between Turku & Kupittaa

In August 2022, the FTIA will start track work between Turku and Kupittaa stations. During track work, the railway line is shut off between Turku and Kupittaa, and trains to Helsinki arrive and depart from the Kupittaa station instead of Turku. Traffic between Turku and Tampere is running normally.

Frequently asked questions about the railway line interruption

Track work will cause changes in train traffic between Helsinki and Turku starting from August 2022. The railway line between the Kupittaa and Turku railway stations will be shut off, which is why the terminus of the trains from Helsinki destined for Turku is Kupittaa. During the railway line interruption, train tickets between Helsinki and Turku will only be sold for travel to the Kupittaa station. If your trip search (e.g. Salo–Turku) does not show results, try switching your search so that the terminus is Kupittaa instead of Turku.

For trains arriving and departing from Tampere, the Turku station is in normal use.

The duration of the track work on the Kupittaa–Turku railway section is estimated to be two years.

When the railway line interruption starts, changes will be made to the use of the multi-ticket: the terminus of the trains from Helsinki to Turku will be Kupittaa instead of Turku. This will have an impact on the available train connections and their booking with the multi-ticket.

Once you do this, you will see all available services in your search results, and you can book trips with your multi-ticket normally.

The functionalist station

The Turku station was opened in 1876. The construction of the current station building, which represents functionalist architectural design, was completed in 1940. It was built for the Helsinki Summer Olympics in 1952 because it was believed that the majority of tourists would arrive from the Port of Turku.

Significant cultural environment

There are a lot of buildings from the late 19th century in the area surrounding the station. The Finnish Heritage Agency has classified the area around the Turku Central railway station as a nationally significant built cultural environment.
