Raidejokeri: In Urban Infrastructure Projects, Rapid Situational Awareness is Crucial

The Jokeri Light Rail is a large construction site around Helsinki Metropolitan area. The area requires rapid situational awareness, that now is provided by Pointscene's automated web service for orthoimages.

At Raidejokeri we are more confident in our decision-making because of updated situational awareness, which results in significant time savings. We can now update our ortho compilation basemap 100x faster than before. Tomi Mäkelä, Head Surveyor

About the Project

The Jokeri Light Rail project is a remarkable achievement that will make a significant positive impact on public transportation in the Helsinki and Espoo regions. The Jokeri Light Rail, known as Raide-Jokeri in Finnish, is a light rail transit project connecting the cities of Helsinki and Espoo. The project stands out as an exceptional achievement in the history of construction projects in the Helsinki metropolitan area, especially because it’s set to be completed ahead of schedule and under budget.

Project Statistics

The Jokeri Light Rail line is approximately 25 kilometers long, featuring 33 stations along its route. The most notable achievement is that passenger traffic is expected to begin around 10 months earlier than initially anticipated, which translates into substantial cost savings. This is a significant accomplishment, considering that the project’s overall budget was around 386 million euros as of 2018, an increase from the original estimate of 275 million euros in 2016.

Alliance partners: NRC Group Finland, YIT, Ramboll, Sitowise, and Sweco.

Workers: 5858 workers have been onboarded during the construction phase.

Project Goals

The alliance model’s core idea is based on collaboration between stakeholders. Parties set target costs and schedules, with both bearing the responsibility for delays and cost overruns. This arrangement promotes cooperation and discourages finger-pointing. Time and cost savings benefit all parties, encouraging them to work together to achieve these goals.


The alliance model’s success in the Raide-Jokeri project is due, in part, to the strong commitment from both client and alliance partners. This commitment includes employing full-time staff members to address design changes and solutions promptly. Pointscene has also played a crucial role in the project, offering invaluable tools for streamlining communication and collaboration among various stakeholders. This digital tool allowed all project stakeholders to easily access and share up-to-date data (Orthophotos via WMS), facilitating efficient decision-making and reducing potential for delays.

The alliance model has proven its effectiveness for large, complex infrastructure projects, like Raide-Jokeri, and has paved the way for similar successes in the future.
