Strange, because all has been green since early May up to Lapland :o I think it's just their release date. And there certainly wasn't snow on May 21st ^ we had +28 back then.

In the descriptions of the photos error: not shooting month June - photos were taken on May 6. This can be seen through the trees and confirmed exif to the file.

The EXIF data shows that the photos have been taken on May 6th. June 13th is the date of upload.

The nature currently is all-green, nothing like in the pictures.

The road was opened in 2+2 mode last November, but the finalization work is still ongoing: Railings, noise barriers, animal fences, and gardening. That is why the road is not yet a motorway.

The west half is almost complete, and the speed limit was raised from 80 to 100 the day before yesterday. The east half except the Espoonlahti brigdes will be raised to 100 in August. The road will be complete in autumn, and then it will be given a status of a motorway.

Upgrade of Kehä III (Ring 3) in eastern Helsinki. For some reason the schematics are in Swedish.

It is always nice to see a development project in a congested urban area.

Trunk urban road systems that are not being developed despite traffic increases end up eventually as a crap systems, there are so many examples both in Scandinavia, and in Western Europe, and in Poland...

Some projects, especially those ones impacting bilingual areas, are presented in both Finnish and Swedish on the web pages. You have picked the Swedish charts.

So one after another, the at-grade left-turns at the 7/50 interchange get eliminated. Sweet.

Is the west-to-north turn removed completely? There's no ramp for that traffic on the map.

It might make sense to remove that turn and reroute the little amount of traffic there might be through local roads, and so allow the Ring III itself be completely free of traffic lights.

(EDIT: the map is not properly orientated, what I'm referring to as west-to-north looks more like south-to-west on that map...)

Those small-scale maps are incomplete. The W-N ramp will remain in its current shape. Even the left turn to the Ring 3 as a level crossing remains.

Thanks.

I wonder how much traffic there will be using that left turn. The only reasonable place to go to is Länsimäki junction (Västerkulla on Chris' Swedish maps) and for those streets new access ramps (at the Fazer bridge) are built anyway. If one is taking Ring III anywhere west of that, then one doesn't turn to road 7 in the first place but stays on road 4 until Ring III.

I am quite sure the ramp will carry a lot of traffic after the new waste-to-energy power plant nearby is complete next year. The natural route from the south and southeast Helsinki goes via that ramp.

Anyway, it is best to build full-access junctions and let the users to decide.

Reconstruction of the road Vt -7 (E 18 to the west of Kotka) motorway is under way.
As you know, in some parts of the second carriageway is being completed, but much rebuilt.
After the construction of the new road, trying to keep parts of the old road to go down and change the status symbol: Vt 7 -> 170. To restore connectivity stored stations at the intersection with the new motorway being built new roads.

To the west of Ahvenkoski:

In part, the old sections 7 Vt are subject to reclamation.
Closed old carriageway road Vt -7 (E 18) - is being dismantled power fencing:

Closed oldest part of the road Vt -7 (E 18) immediately recultivated:

Before the reconstruction ...

... and during reconstruction:

The thickness of the pavement the old site is not great:

Construction of an interchange on the 87 km - the intersection with the remaining old road:

At the road base, and do not forget about networking:

Road trough literally cut down in granite:

.

It is a place for OSM:

This is something really interesting! It will obligate Finland to finally upgrade Road 6/12 Hollola-Lahti-Kouvola and Koskenkylä-Kouvola + Imatra-Parikkala to motorway standards - construction on stretch Taavetti-Lappeenranta is already starting, and Lappeenranta-Imatra has been completed

It's really stupid to leave the at-level-junction...
