Social aspects

Benefits for the community

Safer driving, faster journeys, higher traffic capacity, continuous motorway link between Turku and Helsinki, landscaping and design features reduce noise and environmental impact.

Community Relationships

Skanska has made special efforts to keep local communities informed and comfortable with developments, and to build strong relationships.

The 2.2 kilometer Karnainen Tunnel runs underneath a wilderness area of great natural beauty, ideal for mushroom picking, scouting, picnics and skiing and encompassing woodland and two small lakes.

When the city which owns the area planned to cut down the trees for profit, our special purpose company joined forces with local people to save the area for the community.
