Tallinn Quadrupling Road Maintenance Budget ({{commentsTotal}})


The city has earmarked 14.3 million euros for road maintenance next year, up from 4 million for the current year, with the state set to add 2.6 million, roughly the same figure as last year.

As the expensive Ülemiste intersection is now complete, the city has an extra 10 million euros for investments into larger road projects. That budget was only 6.8 million euros this year, not counting the Ülemiste project, but will rise to 16.2 million in 2014.

Tallinn's government came under criticism in the spring for failing to deal with the extent and speed at which roads were damaged by unfavorable weather conditions.

The city's street lighting budget will also receive more juice, with 7.8 million euros earmarked for 2014, 1.1 million more than for the current year.
