On Thursday, November 16, both lanes of Tallinn's Narva maantee at the Narva maantee - Laikmaa - Hobujaama intersection are set to reopen. Following that, the intersection of Gonsiori tänav and Reimani tänav, as well as the sections of Logi tänav and Sadama tänav, will also gradually reopen for traffic.
According to a City of Tallinn press release, there will be two lanes open for crossing the Narva Maantee - Laikmaa - Hobujaama intersection in both directions of Narva maantee from Thursday, November 16.
As construction work on Hobujaama tänav and Laikmaa tänav is still ongoing, pedestrians will not yet be able to cross the intersection diagonally. With the opening of the regulated pedestrian crossing at the Narva maantee - Laikmaa - Hobujaama intersection, the temporary pedestrian crossing between Viru Keskus and Nordic Hotel Forum will be removed.
