Construction on a major highway stretch between the northeastern towns of Jõhvi and Kukruse wraps up today.

The project cost 40 million euros, of which 12 million was subsidized by the EU’s Cohesion Fund.

Thus far, the Jõhvi-Kukruse stretch on the Tallinn-Narva highway was one of Estonia’s most dangerous places to drive, and traffic accidents were frequent. About 10,000 vehicles pass through the stretch each day.

The project, in northeastern part of the country, includes seven kilometers of highway with five overpasses, two pedestrian bridges and merging points that connect many smaller roads.

Construction of the road began last March and was completed two months ahead of schedule.
