Väylä is the Finnish Transport Infrastructure Agency responsible for planning, developing, and maintaining the transportation infrastructure in Finland. It was established in 2019 through the merger of three separate agencies: Finnish Transport Agency, Finnish Road Administration, and some parts of the Centre for Maritime Transport and Infrastructure.
The Finnish Transport Agency has been a part of Eress since 2013, making Finland the fifth partnering country. The agency manages the railway infrastructure, including tracks, stations, and signaling systems. Väylä collaborates with train operators to ensure the efficient and safe operation of rail services.
Väylä views their efforts towards energy efficiency and sustainability in the railway buissines as a fundamental aspect of their role as a transport infrastructure agency. By giving priority to energy management, research and innovation, and embracing renewable energy sources, Väylä strives to decrease their environmental footprint while ensuring safe and effective railway operations.
