Kopli tram services suspended over first weekend of May

Kopli tram services suspended over first weekend of May

This upcoming weekend, from the evening of May 3 at 8 PM until the end of Sunday, May 5, tram lines 1, 2, and 5 will not be operating. During this time, shuttle bus line 52 will replace these tram routes between Kopli and Mere puiestee.

Due to the initiation of the temporary bus line from May 3 to May 5, temporary parking changes are advised on Volta Street and Kopli Street in the vicinity of the tram terminus. The interruption in tram services is due  to the construction at the temporary Linnahall stop and the tram turnaround loop at Skoone Bastion Stadium.

From May 6 until mid-August, the Kopli direction will be served by temporary tram line 1, operating between Kopli and Linnahall. During this period, track and overhead contact systems will be installed along Põhja puiestee as part of the Old City Harbour tramway construction. Trams 2 and 5 will not be operational, and initially, no temporary bus lines are planned for Kopli-bound trams as the existing public transport network, together with the temporary tram line to Linnahall, provides sufficient alternatives for travel from Põhja-Tallinn to the city centre.

Deputy Mayor Kristjan Järvan affirmed that the Tallinn Transport Department is utilizing all resources to minimize the inconveniences caused by the construction. "As a primary interchange hub, we recommend using Balti jaam, which offers several bus transfer options. Additionally, we have prepared recommendations for passengers on which bus lines to use as tram replacements. With sensors in buses, we continuously monitor their capacity and can respond promptly. If necessary, we are ready to increase the service volume and frequency of the buses departing from Balti jaam that replace the trams," said Järvan.

For tram riders from Põhja-Tallinn, the most convenient transfer location is Balti jaam. For replacing tram line 2, we recommend using bus line 2 towards the Tallinn Bus Station and Ülemiste, departing from the Balti jaam transport stop. For tram line 5, we suggest using bus line 73 towards Vana-Lõuna, which departs from the Linnahall stop, and bus line 3, which departs from the Balti jaam transport stop. To replace tram line 1 in the direction of Kadriorg, bus lines 8 and 66, which depart from Balti jaam and Linnahall stops, are recommended. Additionally, the frequency of tram lines 3 and 4 will be increased, allowing transfers at Viru and Vabaduse väljak stops.

Recommendations for public transport routes, transfer options, and maps of stop locations can also be found on the Old City Harbour tramway website at and
