In this case, a bored tunnel completely out of the question, for obvious reasons.

Regardless, a tunnel is expensive whichever way you build it and it's highly unlikely that we will see a new €100 million road project in Tallinn in the foreseeable future.

Winter is coming and by Thursday all 110km/h speed limits will be gone for this year.

On a brighter note, Aruvalla-Kose section on T2/E263 is almost finished. Here are a few (outdated) photos from Estonian Road Administration's website.

For some reason they've decided to use wire rope barriers for the median which is odd since the outer barriers (where necessary) are still regular metal barriers. I guess it was cheaper

The first* variable-message signs may appear on Estonian highways in 2015

*Well, techincally they wouldn't be the first. There are some electronic signs on the roads already, displaying things like weather information. Ülemiste interchange also has VMS but this would be the first on an intercity highway.

If everything goes according to plan, these signs would be put up on T2/E263 between Tallinn and Kose (on the dual carriageway section). They would be used to lower speed limits in case of extreme weather, accidents, roadworks etc. They could also be used to raise speed limits during the winter season (approx. Nov-May) if the weather conditions are good.

Hopefully this indicates the end of permanent winter season speed limits on the dual carriageways in Estonia. It's so frustrating to drive 90km/h on a dual carriageways when it's spring, the sun is out, it's 10C outside and the roads are dry. That's also the prime time for speed checks -_-

Some of my ideas! Mõned minu ideed!

Tondi and Kotka street intersection.
Tondi ja Kotka tänava ristmik.


Northern crossroad in Kadriorg.
Põhja ristmik Kadriorus.


Viljandi and Pärnu highways intersection.
Pärnu mnt. ja Viljandi mnt. ristmik.




Something also outside Tallinn. Kehra bridge over the river and onto the railway mileage.
Midagi ka Tallinnast väljas.
Kehra sild üle jõe ning raudtee alune läbisõit.

The same thing that describes the current situation and what might be in the future!
Sama asi mis kirjeldab praegust olukorda ning milline võiks olla tulevikus!

Esimese puhul läheb kitsaks ning ilmselt oleks rambid liiga järsud. Samuti ei leia ma, et seal oleks kahetasandilist vaja, fooridest piisaks. Raudtee alt tuleks aga tõesti tunnel teha

Sorry, my bad

About the first idea: There isn't enough room for such a project and the ramps would also be too steep. Also, i find that this place wouldn't need a multi-level intersection, traffic lights would do the trick. But the railway should definitely get a traffic tunnel under it

It may be opened on 16th / 17th November, but I'm not sure...
Currently, traffic is allowed to use one lane in each direction.

It was officially opened today. Unfortunately the press photos don't show much of the road itself so here's a link to a video instead: http://arileht.delfi.ee/news/tarbija....d?id=67114734

That looks quite alright, it could be a motorway in other countries.

A nice aerial photo of another project that's pretty much finished: the Postimaja interchange on the Western bypass of Tartu. The exact location of the interchange is here: https://www.google.com/maps/preview#...8!3d58.3437252

Speaking of Tartu, here's an aerial shot of the U/C bridge over Emajõgi. The bridge is going to be roughly 400m long with 1x2 lanes and a pedestrian/cycling path. Location: https://www.google.com/maps/preview#...!2m1!1e3&fid=7

Kas all paremal nurgas on Kvissentali elamurajoon? Päris kaugel tundub südalinnast sellisel juhul

In English. Is that Kvissental right down in the corner?

Here's a map of the bypasses of Tartu.

Red - the existing Western bypass.
Green - a small part of it next to the Western bypass was built during the Soviet period. The currently U/C section (which also features the new bridge) will be built between that previous existing section and Lammi intersection (check the map). In the future the Eastern bypass should be extended all the way to Kõrveküla where it will be connected to the E264/T3.
Black - the potential Northern bypass.


The purpose of the Eastern bypass is even not so much to divert local traffic away from the town centre but rather the large amount of lorries. Tartu is the hub for several important transit corridors (T2/E263, T3/E264, T45) and at the moment, only the traffic on T2 can bypass the town centre.

An overview of what is currently being built can be seen here: stage 1 and stage 2.

Stage 1 runs from T2/E263 to the river and is almost complete as of November 2013, stage 2 crosses the river and should be completed in spring 2015.

Kui vaadata Maa-ameti kaardirakenduse kaardilt (http://xgis.maaamet.ee/xGIS/XGis) Tallinn-Tartu-Võru-Luhamaa mnt. Kose-Võõbu lõiku, siis on selgelt näha uue trassi koridori.

If you look at the map of the Land Board, the Maps application (http://xgis.maaamet.ee/xGIS/XGis) on the Tallinn-Tartu-Võru Luhamaa Rd. Kose-Võõbu section, you can
clearly see the new road corridor.

As most of you already know, due to the lack of funds, Estonian road administration has decided that years 2014 - 2020 will be dedicated to the existing road preservation. The problem is that current average age of pavement on main roads is 10-12 years, but for regional roads it is over 20 and for local roads over 25! And the numbers are growing. The target is to have it below 15 and keep it there.
This means that majority of money will go to repaving, paving and reconstruction of roads. Amount of new major constructions has been minimized, with yearly investments being at level of 30 - 45 mln EURs.

With this in mind, what major constructions we will see in 2014 - 2020:
1) Tallinn - Narva road
- Sillamae stretch (2016). Reconstruction of the existing 1+1 road in Sillamae with new traffic lights, railroad interchange and pedestrian tunnels.
- Vao interchange (2017 - 2018). Construction of a new interchange near Tallinn. Stage 3 of Vao - Maardu reconstruction.
- Kostivere interchange (2019). Reconstruction of 7km of the existing 2+2 road to add a new interchange and remove same level crossings.
- Aaspere - Haljala (2020). Construction of a new 7km 2+1 or 2+2 stretch between the existing 2+2 sections.

2) Tallinn - Tartu road
- Tartu western bypass (2014 - 2015). Continuation of Tartu eastern bypass reconstruction. In total ~7km.
- Tatra safety improvements (2016). Reconstruction of the Tatra intersection. It will stay same level, but a 1km bypass will be built to improve visibility on T-2 and the T-46 road will get a 2+1 section.
- Kose - Aardu (2016 - 2020). A new 14km 2+2 or 2+1 section.
- Poltsama - Tartu (2018). Construction of 2+1 sections. Pre-project ongoing, no details yet known.

3) Tallinn - Parnu.
- Topi interchange and reconstruction of the road till Tallinn border (2014 , 2017). Continuation of Topi interchange construction in 2014 + a new traffic light in 2017.
- Aasmae - Kernu (2015 - 2016). Construction of the 2+1 sections on the 12km stretch.
- Nurme stretch (2016 - 2018). Widening of the existing 6km section to 2+1 and construction of a new bridge over Sauga river.
- Kernu bypass (2018 - 2019). A new 4km 2+1 section bypassing the village.

4) Tallinn - Paldiski / Tallinn ringroad.
- Section near Keila (2014 - 2015). Reconstruction of T-8 / T-11 intersection into a roundabout + several new roundabouts and a new 500m 2+2 section.
- Vao - Juri (2015 - 2020). This project has been split into 10 small parts. What will be done: Juri big roundabout reconstruction, Juri small roundabout widening to 2+2, Karla interchange, new Laagedi railroad bridge for local traffic and widening of the existing Laagedi intersection to 2+2 with traffic lights.
- Juuliku - Kanama section (2019). Most likely a 5km 2+2 road with traffic lights and a new bridge for local traffic. No Juuliku interchange planned!
- Kanama - Keila (2019 - 2020). Some safety improvements on intersections with road staying 1+1.


- km 65 - 70. One of the oldest section of the road is being currently reconstructed. Left carriageway near Loobu, which was constructed in 1970s!
Some images: http://www.mnt.ee/index.php?id=23949
- km 72. Viitna viadukt is being reconstructed.
- km 87,0 – 90,5. Haljala interchange is fully open for traffic.
http://www.teeilm.teeinfo.ee/haljala1.php3
http://www.teeilm.teeinfo.ee/haljala2.php3
- km 120. New bridge construction in Padaorg:



In one interview head of the Estonian road administration has mentioned that one day it might be good to have. But he is not the one to decide. So it is only talks.
Hey, guys!
I'm looking for any info about forthcoming construction projects. I've found this, but I can find any more specific data. Is any of this confirm, or offical? Is there any map of planned investment or any document in which I can find any specific data?

Thanks a lot for any answer and help.
Cheers!
