The overall objective of the Action is to contribute to the improvement of the Mediterranean–Scandinavian Corridor part in Finland (Global Project).
The Global Project in Helsinki is located in the node of two core network corridors: the Mediterranean–Scandinavian corridor and the North Sea–Baltic corridor, serving as a connection between Helsinki Airport and the centre of Helsinki and making the flow of passenger transport smoother to Helsinki’s harbours.
The specific objective of the action is to ensure technical maturity and designs that would allow the construction of the Helsinki Rail loop, implementation of improvements in the Helsinki railway yard and the construction of an additional track and a platform at Pasila. It will therefore contribute to the removal of bottlenecks and the bridging of missing links which hinder traffic flows.
The action will result in completed Construction Plans for the Helsinki Rail loop, the Helsinki railway yard and an additional track at Pasila.
