The city government decided to return the section on the Yliskylä loop and its costs for re-preparation.

In July The then mayor of Helsinki Jan Vapaavuori (co) commissioned a study on the increase in the project’s cost estimate from EUR 430 million to almost EUR 800 million.

The Kruunusillat tramway connects Laajasalo and Kalasatama to Hakaniemi with a ten-kilometer tram connection.

What makes the whole thing complicated is the fact that the implementation and decision-making of the five sub-projects are differentiated. Thus, there are several separate projects within the project, which have been budgeted at different times.
