Next Four-Lane Segment of Tallinn-Tartu Road Announced ({{commentsTotal}})


A contract has been signed to turn an additional 28 kilometres of the Tallinn-Tartu highway into divided four-lane road.

The Road Administration signed a contract with Lithuanian company UAB Kelprojektas last week. The cost of the project is 750,784 euros.

Distance references are given according to the old road. The segment that will be transformed into divided highway runs from kilometer post 40 to 68, but the new road will be 3 kilometers shorter.

The engineering work for the first part, 12.3 kilometers of new road from Kose to Ardu, will be completed next summer and the procurement or the actual road construction work must then be conducted in short order, with work having to begin in 2015.

The engineering work for the next 13 kilometers will be completed by spring 2016 under the same contract signed last week. The construction period has not been agreed.
