We can handle half a metre of snow but -47C would probably stop all life in Tallinn

There's -58C too. The north part of Tallinn would become a glacier.

Not bad, looks as if it is made with a perspective for widening it to 2x2! Cool!

7,5km long. And the road has a hard shoulder. Check this for more information: http://www.mnt.ee/atp/failid/Ku_Jo_ENG.pdf

November 2010. The main road should be completed a bit earlier.

The length is about 7km. ~5km of 2x2 road (from Kukruse interchange till Johvi interchange) + ~2km of 1x2 road (from 155,9km till Kukruse interchange and from Johvi interchange till 163,2km). All with hard wide shoulders and a median in the center.

On this Sunday, 10 January, I took some pics on my way to my summer cottage to clear its roof from excessive snow.




1. Deep in Tallinn's suburbia. On the right is Tiskre.


2. Reaching Tabasalu. My friend used to live in the tower block far on the right.


3. Still in Tabasalu.


4.


5.


6.


7.


8. Reaching Suurupi


9.


10.


11. In Vääna-Jõesuu


12. The road gets really slippery here. The snow is covered by a thin layer of ice. Driving speed was 70km/h or below.


13.


14.


15.


16.


17. Reaching Keila-Joa. Here is a manor house(unfortunately in ruins) and a beautiful waterfall. There were lots of people that day visiting it.


18.


19. One of the very few 60km/h speed limits in Estonia. It's usually 50km/h or 70km/h.


20.


21.


22.


23. Turning right for Lohusalu.


24. The small road that leads to Lohusalu.


25. And a bonus pic. You can see the sea hiding behind the trees .

It kind of belongs to the whole family, actually. Lohusalu peninsula and its surroundings are full of summer cottages, most of them from the Soviet era(including the one we own).

Ahh,you took the scenic route. It's my favourite road in Estonia (ok,maybe few roads in Southern Estonia come close to it) It's really nice driving experience,constant curves & good roadside views (sea,cliffs & nice forests)
