A faster link is a long-standing dream
A direct railway line between Helsinki and Turku has been planned since the 1970s. Back then, the Espoo-Lohja-Salo direct railway line was called the ELSA line. However, a decision to repair the current coastal railway (Rantarata) was made. In the early 2000s, the need for a high-speed rail link was once again brought up.
