The Road Administration (Maanteeamet) is not planning to apply the speed cameras to the newly finished Tallinn-Tartu highway Kose-Võõbu section.

"There are road cameras, weather stations and other intelligent road devices in place on the Kose-Võõbu road section. There are no speed cameras on that section, however, and we are not planning to add them," Erkki Vaheoja, Head of the Road Administration's maintenance department, said.

"The new 2+2 and 2+1 [lanes] are constructed in a way that they are safe, which is why we won't install speed cameras," he added.

The new 23-km long Kose-Võõbu section was opened for traffic in the middle of August.

Opening the new section shortened the distance between Tallinn and Tartu on the highway by three kilometers, making the new distance 181 km.

The Kose-Ardu section cost €50.7 million, and the Ardu-Võõbu section €3u million. The total cost of the road section is €88.7 million.
