Large ponds have accumulated on the Lahdenväylä and other large waterways.
The metropolitan area whipping rain has hampered traffic on Thursday.
At half past nine in the evening, the lanes of Lahdenväylä had to be closed to traffic, as large puddles had accumulated on the road.
This is detrimental to traffic between the Pihlajamäki junction and the Koskela junction.
“Lahdenväylä has a big pond,” says the firefighter of the Helsinki Rescue Department Toni Kannonkoski.
The water pond has caused at least one crash at the site.
According to Kannonkoski, units of the rescue service are currently on site to find out how the pond could be pumped out or whether the lid of the rainwater well could be opened.
Kannonkoski according to wet weather has caused challenges especially on larger fairways.
“When the snowfall came as water, water puddles have accumulated. There is a big risk of accidents, ”he estimates.
Motorists are advised to be careful because of the water ponds on the roads.
“A car easily goes its own way if it ends up in a big pond,” says Kannonkoski.
