Tallinn airport to be connected with tram link ({{commentsTotal}})

A tender to connect the Estonian capital with the country’s most important airport has ended and the work begins on the new link.

Tallinn Urban Transport (TLT) launched a tender for a contract to design and build infrastructure for an extension of Tallinn’s 40 kilometer long tram network to Lennart Meri airport this summer.

It was announced on Thursday that the tender was won by construction and real estate company Merko.

The winning bid was for 11.5 million euros.

TLT plans to sign the contract in October and it is hoped that the project, co-financed by the European Union funds, will be completed by the end of 2017. A new two kilometer long branch will be built to the airport terminal.

Tallinn Airport is located approximately 4 kilometers from the center of Estonian capital. In 2014, it served over 2 million passengers.
