Ring II (pronounced "ring two", Finnish: Kehä II, Swedish: Ring II; also known as Kilonväylä[1]) in the city of Espoo is one of the major highways in Finland. The road runs north–south, connecting Turuntie in the north, to Länsiväylä in the south.[2] Despite its name suggesting a circle, it has not been built as a true beltway yet, unlike the parallel Ring I and Ring III highways.


The road was initially planned in the 1960s, but it was not until the end of 2000 that the first phase was completed.[2]


Since the cross-city traffic in Espoo, Kauniainen and Vantaa is estimated to nearly double by the year 2025,[3] plans have been made to extend Ring II to connect up with Finnish national road 3 (Finnish: Hämeenlinnanväylä) in the northeast and add lanes where the road is currently only one lane wide in each direction.[4]
