Helsinki does not need centre tunnel
RESOURCES TO PUBLIC TRANSIT

Helsinki centre tunnel

Plan:
- a west–east car tunnel beneath the centre of Helsinki
- lenght 3,4–4,3 km
- cost circa 300 million euro

Tunnel is:
- more cars and parking in city center
- reduction in public transit use
- more greenhouse gas emissions
- more inequality in traffic

Alternative
- better public transit
- better walking and cycling
- safer and calmer streets
- fewer cars
- car-free areas

The climate change is not somewhere far away. It is here now. This must have effect in traffic and urban planning. Several public transit projects need resources urgently.

Helsinki can have pedestrian centre without car tunnel.
