Jokiranta project

Renovation of Humppila road railway crossing next to the Jokioinen station is ready. The team of VR-rata Oy working at Minkiö station installed the pre-made rail elements to the crossing and Soraset Oy took care the traffic control and road surfacing. The old crossing element made of 22 kg/m rails has been replaced by one made of 30 kg/m rails and decked with asphalt. The crossing of a bicycle road has an old style concrete decking. With the concrete decking the gaps between the deck and rails could be made more narrow and thus make the crossing more safe for bicycles.

The rail elements for the Humppila road railway crossing in Jokioinen are ready and waiting for transportation at Minkiö station. Today one rail length of old rails on the railway crossing was dismantled and all other rail joints were opened. After train traffic is over for this year also the rail joint between the switch and the railway crossing should be opened.

A long time planned 800 m track extension from Jokioinen station along the old unused trackbed to the center of Jokioinen manor area has got its first step forward. Survey has been made on the site and first plans have been made to rebuild the existing unused track and move the end point of the railway closer to area which have more tourism potential. Next phase on the project will be making a contract on track access on government land.
