The Public Works Department is responsible for planning, constructing and maintaining public areas; land surveying, cartographic and geotechnical engineering services; and the statutory regulatory tasks included in the area of responsibility in question.
Planning, building and maintaining infrastructure is an integral part of our operations. We play a part in ensuring that the city environment is safe, tidy, accessible and functional.
We are responsible for the maintenance of streets, market places and pedestrian and cycle routes in Espoo. Maintenance works include, for example, repairing road surfaces, levelling road surfaces and binding dust on gravel roads as well as managing drains. In winter, we clear snow from roads and prevent slipperiness by sweeping the roads. You can check the maintenance classification of each street, determining the order of priority of their maintenance, in the Espoo Map Service.
