The contract includes constructing the Soukka metro station building with landscaping and technical shafts as well as the tunnel station and service tunnels. Additionally, an underground air-raid shelter will be built. The construction will begin in August 2018 and is scheduled for completion in February 2022. The project is booked in YIT’s order backlog in the second quarter of 2018.
”We are happy to participate in further development of Espoo, also with building the metro. In the Soukka metro station construction project we can benefit from our previous experience of the four stations that we have built for the West Metro. For instance, when building the Aalto University station, we took in use several innovative methods to improve project management,” says Anne Piiparinen, Senior Vice President of Industrial and Structural Engineering of YIT’s Infrastructure construction segment.
