Extensive road construction site in Mustasaari, Finland, is progressing rapidly– roadways may become available for traffic as early as this year
The construction of the approximately 2.5-kilometer long four-line road (between Vassor and Vöyri Kärklax in Mustasaari, Finland) started in August 2020. The extensive road construction site is progressing rapidly – new lanes may already be driven in the autumn. Infrakit is used in the project.
A lot has been done in six months, says project manager Veijo Rajamäki from the ELY Center for YLE (17.2.2021). The main contractor in the project is Sundström Oy from Pedersörel. According to Sundström, the work got off to a good start in October and there have been no major surprises or delays. Off-road sections are currently being worked on.
Work has only been done on site for half a year, but the project is already well ahead of schedule.
Project manager Veijo Rajamäki says that completion is originally scheduled for the summer of 2022, but the situation has changed. Now it seems that they are able to cover the carriageways already in the middle of this year, possibly in the autumn. As a result, roadways may become available for traffic as early as this year.
The cost estimate for the road section is 9.8 million euros. On top of that comes the design costs. They bring the total to eleven million euros. According to Veijo Rajamäki the budget is not exceeded. (YLE 17.2.2021.)
