The Estonian government at its Cabinet meeting on Thursday endorsed a list of infrastructure items that will receive a combined €135 million in additional investments over the next three years.

The largest single share of the additional funding, an additional €44 million, will go to construction on Tallinn-Pärnu Highway.

"Large-scale construction helps enliven our economy," Minister of Economic Affairs and Infrastructure Kadri Simson (Center) said in a press release. "That said, we also tried to take road traffic safety into account when deciding on investment targets."

€74 million, or more than half of the total amount of €135 million, will be spent on roads. In addition to Tallinn-Pärnu Highway, other projects to receive additional funding include the widening of Tallinn-Narva Highway to four lanes between Aaspere and Haljala (€15 million) and a municipal transit roads program (€15 million).

Additional railway investments are to total €40 million while regional airports are to receive an extra €21 million in funding.
