Vuosaari Harbour Road Tunnel Traffic Management and Incident Detection System Design Issues

A new modern and effective cargo harbor is under construction at Vuosaari in Helsinki, Finland. In its entirety, the project will include the harbor, a logistics area, traffic connections (road, railway, and fairway), and a business park. The road connection goes through the Porvarinlahti road tunnel. The Vuosaari port will commence operating in 2008. This paper provides an overview of the tunnel design phase functional studies and risk analysis tunnel incident detection system design issues, as well as some specific environmental features of the tunnel.
