If you are travelling by train between Helsinki and Turku today be prepared to disruptions.

Railway operator VR says the track is out of service due to an electrical fault.

Trains will be replaced by buses between Karjaa and Salo.

There is also trouble with commuter traffic in the Helsinki metropolitan area.

Commuter lines, including the train to the airport, are severely delayed, and facing cancelations because of ongoing repair work to the tracks

VR promises that both problems will be fixed by the end of Saturday afternoon.
