HELSINKI—Metro services will be disrupted for over a week from July 17 to 25.

The disruption is due to the replacement of the Kipparlahti metro bridge in Herttoniemi. The bridge completed in 1972 will be demolished and replaced by a new one.


The metro will only run between Matinkylä and Kulosaari. There will be no metro services from Kulosaari eastwards. Metro stations in East Helsinki will be served by replacement buses 99B, 99V and 99M from the Railway Square.

During the service disruption, metro stations to the east of Herttoniemi will be closed.

Bus terminals at metro stations will be open as usual.
