Kalkkisaarenselkä – Vuosaari Harbour #1

These photos will quickly become outdated, as the construction of the new harbour area in the waters of kalkkisaarenselkä is progressing fast (see the harbour as of April 2009). What used to be a neglected industrial harbour on the easternmost shore of Helsinki will now be rebuild, modernized and extended into the sea. All of the area seen on the pics below is new land. The whole area is currently as industrial as it gets. Cranes and containers on stone and concrete – all signs of biological life have been removed within a diameter of almost 2 sq.km. I only saw a couple of disoriented ducks trying to find their way amidst the new, hostile islands.
