Then the state should take 1 or 2 square meters (whatever the minimum they need for a column) and pay him only for the land which will be covered by the column. His land was worthless before and it should remain worthless.

The problem with the current legislation is that private land can be acquired for state projects only through court so it takes a lot of time either way.

If they take only 1 or 2 square meters (and pay for only 1 or 2 square meters), the next obstructionist land owner may be more willing to sell quickly for a reasonable price.

I don't think owner want's such a "deal", he clearly purchased this lot because he knew something will happen there soon and now wants to earn...

He would never accept this square deal, what he'll do with the rest of the land? No one else wants this

Exactly. He should not earn a reward for holding the country hostage. Others should see that he does not earn a reward. He bought the land knowing that it had no private value, only public value.

Not houses. There are plans to build container terminal, and on this land between railway tracks is planned another railway, connecting terminal to Maardu station. There were also some renders on this forum.

An update on Ülemiste intersection construction:

Viaduct in it's full glory. Click on the photo for larger view.

"Mini tunnel" digging between Peterburi tee & Ülemiste tee is still being dug.
[IMG]http://i46.************/m8p7cw.jpg[/IMG]

Moving towards the tunnel construction site. This is the view from Järvevana tee. I counted 8 construction cranes there yesterday.

Time to get on the other side of the road...

Light traffic tunnel is still half opened at the moment,but as you will see on next photos,it makes sense as there's a really busy construction site on the other side.
[IMG]http://i46.************/119v0a1.jpg[/IMG]

Here's the U/C half of the tunnel. Damn,I wish there would be some photos of it's interior - tunnel should look really impressive right now.

Bit closer look.

Back at the Järvevana tee.

Well,that's all.

First sketch of the Sillamae interchange on Tallinn - Narva road (T1/E20) has been shown to public.
And it is quite bad... An interchange with 3 bridges ended up having 2 totally unneeded same level crossings on main road, along with one same level pedestrian crossing. Lack of acceleration lanes hints, that the speed limit will stay 50km/h. To make things even worse, we have a political decision to keep the road 1+1.

Construction is expected to start in 2015.

It seems that it's mainly meant to get better and safer access to port and factories of Silmet. The current crossroad is really awful. If they ever build the 2x2 road near Sillamäe it would probably be located between Sõtke reservoir and Vaivara. It would be much cheaper than building a bridge beside the current dam of reservoir or something like this. And there is much more space to build proper junctions between Sillamäe and Vaivara than at outskirts of Sillamäe where you will need street just beside highway.

Question to mods..
Can't this thread be moved under "Estonia" forum? http://www.skyscrapercity.com/forumdisplay.php?f=2293

It's really annoying to keep track of it, if it's hidden here

#2 (which is basically just a simplified version of the last project) seems to be the best choice, the rest are just crap, IMO. Although none of them are as awesome as this would've been:


Looks like the Estonian Road Administration is quite serious about their new principle of spending as little as possible on new projetcs...

Some shots about Tallinn-Tartu highway roadworks:
(since it was dark already and i shot from bus, i used high ISO and got bit crappy photos :P)




Some viaduct


Another viaduct right next to the previous one...


Aaaand another viaduct


"Ökodukt"


Road is raised about 10m next to the Klaasimeistrid company


Bridge over small river

I missed one viaduct and one already completed tunnel (pedestrian one, i think)

That's right, the 2x2 highway (if it ever gets built) will bypass Sillamäe completely: http://johvinarva.hendrikson.ee/uplo...n_20120423.pdf

This web page has all the 2x2 highway route plans for the Jõhvi-Narva section of T1/E20.
