The Ministry of Economic Affairs has compiled a list of projects, costing a total of 2.5 billion euros, that could be co-funded by the EU during the next budget period between 2014 and 2020.

The projects include a four-lane Tallinn-Tartu highway, tram lines to Lasnamäe, bridges for Saaremaa and Pärnu, and a rail connection with Haapsalu, but not the Rail Baltic tracks, as that will be funded from separate sources, Postimees reported today.

The ministry itself has admitted that only 0.5 billion euros is available and they must place priorities.

The daily said that the difference between the requests and the available funds is fivefold, and that some of the projects, like the restored rail line to Haapsalu, would be difficult to prioritize. The list had a few omissions, such as the state purchase of ferries between the islands and mainland, Postimees said.
