Central Pasila in transformation – new traffic arrangements to be introduced

For the next few years, Pasila is a hive of construction activity. The new center of Pasila, Tripla, will be developed around the refurbished railway station. The construction works affect pedestrian and bicycle routes, as well as public transport at and around the station.

To avoid Pasila Railway Station construction work and for quicker access we recommend using underpasses (north from the Pasila railway station) when arriving at Messukeskus Helsinki.
