Significant changes in transport arrangements in Otaniemi


Route changes are due to construction work by Jokeri Light Rail and infrastructure maintenance work by City of Espoo. Work at some sites has already begun, and work on others starts in September

Access to the K block (Otakaari 4, Puumiehenkuja 5, Puumiehenkuja 3 and Sähkömiehentie 4), the Nanotalo building, Saha and Konemiehentie 4 has been diverted from Otakaari through the car park at Otakaari 8 (ISS depot) to Sähkömiehentie, at the corner of the Maarintalo building. This route also provides access to the Maarintalo building, including the Terveystalo health services centre. A new connection for motor vehicles is being built on top of the current light traffic route and is clearly marked with signs.

A new connection has been opened from Maarintie towards the Nanotalo building, to the parking area close to Maarintie.

The beginning of Sähkömiehentie has been closed due to work on the ST1 Deep Heat site, and is scheduled to remained closed to all traffic until early 2020.

The beginning of Konemiehentie, close to the T building, has been completely closed to light traffic and motor vehicle traffic. Puumiehenkuja will also be closed to light traffic and motor vehicle traffic. Work on these sites will be completed in late Autumn 2019.

Maarintie will be closed to vehicle traffic in phases, so that access to the parking area behind the T building and Maarintie 8 can be kept open from both directions. A light traffic route will be kept open, alternating between the right and left side of the road. Motor vehicle traffic will mainly be diverted to Tekniikantie and Tietotie.

Areas where roadwork is currently underway will not be closed to traffic entirely, but individual routes (Otakaari, Tietotie) are likely to be closed. Please be prepared for possible traffic congestion and follow the signs carefully. Pedestrians and cyclists should be especially careful.

We will provide further information on traffic arrangements as soon as schedules and work phases are confirmed. Please also follow the updates on and updates concerning Jokeri light rail
