Extensive repairwork on the railway connnecting Tallinn and Tartu is scheduled to be completed soon, after which a trip via train between Estonia's two biggest cities will shorten to under two hours in length.

Beginning Dec. 4, or next Sunday, Elron will no longer have to employ connecting shuttle buses between Tallinn-Rapla and Tapa-Tartu.

On Dec. 11, however, Elron will be launching a new train schedule which will include one additional express train departure each on its Tallinn-Tartu and Tartu-Tallinn routes.

According to the new schedule, the trip should take less than two hours via express train, a decrease from its current average time of two hours and ten minutes; its local trains, which stop at all stations along the route, are also slated to begin making the trip faster than their current approximate time of two hours and 40 minutes.
