The Kamppi metro station (Finnish: Kampin metroasema; Swedish: Kampens metrostation) is a station on the Helsinki Metro. In addition to serving the area around Kamppi in central Helsinki, the station is integrated with the Kamppi Center bus terminal and shopping complex.
The station was opened on 1 March 1983, designed by Eero Hyvämäki, Jukka Karhunen, and Risto Parkkinen. It is located 1.2 kilometres (0.75 mi) from the Ruoholahti metro station, and 0.5 kilometres (0.31 mi) from the Central Railway Station. The station is the deepest of the Helsinki Metro stations, at a depth of 31 metres (102 ft) below ground level and 15 metres (49 ft) below sea level. It was built with a secondary platform located perpendicularly under the one in use, reserved for a future metro extension.
A new eastern entrance, connecting directly to Kamppi Center, was opened on 2 June 2005.
Famous quotes containing the word station:
“...I believe it is now the duty of the slaves of the South to rebuke their masters for their robbery, oppression and crime.... No station or character can destroy individual responsibility, in the matter of reproving sin.”
—Angelina Grimké (18051879)
