Main road 866 Jussinpuro–Pahalampi
Funded by Euregio Karelia Neighbourhood Programme 2001-2006

Objective of the project

Main road 866 leads to Russia through the Kuusamo border crossing point. The road is 46 km long and it bears logging traffic from Paanajärvi in the direction of Finland. The road has been improved along several different sections since 1995. The improvement work was completed to prepare for the needs of traffic crossing the border when the Kuusamo border crossing point was to become international. This application was in reference to a five-and-a-half-kilometre Jussinpuro–Pahalampi section.

• improvements to the alignment and structure of a road section with demanding soil composition. • improvement of 5,5 km Jussinpuro–Pahalampi section of main road 866
