Construction work on the Pärnu-Sauga section of the Tallinn-Pärnu-Ikla highway, which began on Monday, is set to take 20 months to complete, according to the Estonian Transport Administration (Transpordiamet).
On Monday, AS Tref Nord began construction work on the Pärnu-Sauga section of the Tallinn-Pärnu-Ikla highway. The section stretches from the Jänesselja junction to the new Ehitajate tee junction.
According to the Transport Administration, it should take 20 months to complete construction work on the section. It is therefore expected to be finished by August or September 2025.
The construction of the section will cost a total of €13.3 million, plus VAT.
According to the Transport Administration, a temporary traffic management system will first be put in place for the preparatory work. Excavation work will then begin between kilometers 123-125 of the road (from the Coop store to the Salu bus stop) and on an additional section away from traffic.
The speed limit in the vicinity of the construction works is 50 km/h. Traffic will be restricted by temporary signs and regulators. Motorists are advised to expect short-term delays and increased journey times when traveling on this section of road.
