Pöyry has been awarded design assignments by Länsimetro Oy for the Western
Metro extension in Finland. The Western Metro line extension runs in Espoo,
the third largest city in Finland. It will be part of the metro system in the
Helsinki capital region. This new 8 km long track will bring the metro within
the reach of 50000 people in southwestern parts of Espoo. The extension is
estimated to be ready in 2018. Pöyry has also provided engineering services
for the first phase of the Western Metro line, which is currently under
construction and is scheduled to be in operation in 2015.
Pöyry's current services cover track engineering, rock and geotechnical
engineering, architectural design and structural engineering, as well as in
certain stations and depots. Pöyry will deliver some of these services in
cooperation with other consulting companies. The design work started in March.
The total value of Pöyry's services is in the region of EUR 6.3 MEUR, of
which 4.7 MEUR has been booked to Regional Operations business line's order
stock in Q1/2013 and the remaining part will be booked in Q2/2013.

citizens and this Metro extension is an important part of the city
development. I believe that Pöyry's experience in several rail and tunneling
projects will significantly contribute to the project." says Mr Olavi Louko,
Director of Technical and Environment Services, City of Espoo.
Pöyry is currently involved also in other significant infrastructure projects
in Espoo, such as Espoo city rail. Pöyry has long experience in carrying out
