Reetta Putkonen leads the traffic and street planning service in the urban environment division. The transportation planning in the City of Helsinki based on the land use. We have a strong tradition and co-operation between architects and engineers. Planning the traffic starts with the clear strategy and goals including all modes and the result is the summary of several small details.
Traffic is not the absolute value in the city, but people are. However, traffic belongs to cities and all modes are vital. There are areas in the city where some modes are more important than others. This is crucial to notify when developing the traffic system. Putkonen has been working for the City of Helsinki since 2015. Before that she led the transportation planning division of the global consultant company called WSP.
