The Länsiväylä area local city planning applies to Länsiväylä and its surrounding areas in Koivusaari, Lauttasaari and Salmisaari
The Supreme Administrative Court repealed some of the City Plan 2016 markings along the Länsiväylä, including the City boulevard marking. However, the plan allows for urban construction on both sides of the repealed strip in Lauttasaari. The local master plan aims to combine the areas into a coherent city plan. The local master plan will be prepared in 2022–2025.
The local master planning applies to Länsiväylä and its surrounding areas in Koivusaari, Lauttasaari and Salmisaari. The general objective of the local master planning work is to reduce the adverse effects of the fairway-type traffic environment on the population and to explore the possibilities of developing the urban structure along Länsiväylä in Lauttasaari and Salmisaari. The objectives include, for example, determining the area’s land use and traffic as a whole, expanding the inner city, enabling diverse housing production in accordance with the AM programme, diversifying the service structure of the area, providing good locations for business activities and workplaces and creating the preconditions for a high-quality and attractive urban space.
The preparation of the plan shall consider the impact of the plan on the residents’ living conditions, habitat, cityscape, nature, recreation, landscape, cultural heritage and transport, among other things. Particularly important themes will be changes in the transport network and the impact of the new urban structure and any land reclamation on climate and adaptation to climate change, for example. Close cooperation with the transport infrastructure authorities is highlighted when establishing the solution and effects of the transport system. The design solutions for the harbour tunnel to be built by the Port of Helsinki are central to Salmisaari’s land use development opportunities.
