In July last year, Tallinn announced a public architectural competition seeking concepts for Koidu Street as both a residential street and the main street of the Uus Maailm district. Today at 6 PM, a presentation of the top five architectural proposals for the competition will be held at Tallinna Humanitaargümnaasium (Koidu Street 97), aiming to involve local residents in the discussion before the jury makes its final decision.
Starting from February 1, there will be changes to the bus schedules in Tallinn. The changes will affect bus routes number 2, 6, 7, 8, 15, 31, 39, 65, and 73.
To improve traffic flow and safety, the maximum permitted driving speed in the Tallinn city centre will continue to be reduced. The speed limit will be lowered to 40 km/h on Jõe, Pronksi, Liivalaia, and Suur-Ameerika streets, and to 30 km/h on Kaarli puiestee.
This year, Tallinn continues to support projects that enhance residents' environmental awareness and improve gardening opportunities in the city.
Tallinn is planning to construct new tramways on Liivalaia Street and along the Pollinator Highway (Putukaväil) leading to Pelguranna. This week, the City Government sent a proposal to the Ministry of Climate for European Union funding to expand the city's tram network. The plan involves adding three kilometers of new tracks.
The Tallinn City Government has approved the initiative to draft the "Tallinn Environmental Noise Reduction Action Plan 2024–2028." This plan aligns with the "Tallinn 2035" development strategy and the city's mobility plan, aiming to manage environmental noise within the city, particularly noise resulting from transportation and industry.
Starting Monday, January 15, the route of bus line No. 35 will change in the city centre on Narva maantee and Pronksi Street.
Tallinn is transforming its existing waste treatment plants into circular economy centers and constructing new ones to provide services that not only involve waste collection but also focus on waste prevention, reduction, and recycling. The first circular economy center, known as the Lilleküla Circular Economy Center, is slated for construction in the Kristiine district at Mustjõe Street 40.
From September 18 to October 8, all residents of Tallinn have the opportunity to submit their ideas for projects to be included in next year's participatory budget. Anyone interested can participate in an informative webinar today at 17:30 on Microsoft Teams.
The temporary tram line No. 6, introduced during the construction of the Old City Harbour tram line, will continue to operate on the Tondi-Kopli route until at least the end of October. Starting on October 1, the rest of the tram traffic will be fully restored. The City is also exploring the option of permanently continuing with tram line No. 6
