Instructions on Heavy Goods Vehicle Traffic for Foreign Drivers Entering Finnish Port Areas

Map of the official roads in the Western harbour

The harbour area can at times become very busy with traffic. Thus, vehicle traffic is a significant safety risk for anyone operating in the harbour area. It is,
therefore, very important that all vehicles driving in the harbour area keep to the official roads and observe the traffic regulations and the 30‐km/hour
speed limit. The official roads in the harbour area have been marked with white in the attached map.

По территории порта одновременно перемещается большое количество людей, и периодически движение бывает весьма интенсивным. А это
значит, что дорожное движение на данной территории представляет собой риск для безопасности всех его участников. Поэтому крайне важно,
чтобы перемещение транспортных средств осуществлялось строго в пределах официальных проездов, с соблюдением правил дорожного
движения и без превышения установленного скоростного режима (30 км/ч). На прилагаемой карте официальные проезды на территории порта
отмечены белом цветом
