One lane reopened today on Pronksi Street

One lane reopened today on Pronksi Street

Tonight, one lane of the reconstructed Pronksi Street will be reopened to traffic in the section between Narva highway and Gonsiori street, in the direction from Narva higway towards Tartu highway. The section of Pronksi Street between Gonsiori Street and Tartu highway will continue to be open to traffic in one lane in both directions.

"This section was closed to traffic for two weeks to allow the contractor to carry out large-scale works to establish communications in the area of Narva higway and Pronksi street. Despite the difficult weather conditions, the contractor has stayed on schedule and one lane will now be reopened, which will certainly make traffic regulation smoother, especially during rush hours. However, I ask road users to be understanding and to follow the temporary traffic regulations carefully," said Deputy Mayor Vladimir Svet.

The reconstruction of Pronks and Jõe streets is one of the biggest projects Tallinn is undertaking this year. The works will include a complete overhaul of the streetscape, the addition of landscaping and the creation of a safe and comfortable street for all road users, with a special focus on pedestrian and cyclist safety. The entire underground section of Pronksi street will also be upgraded, with the replacement of all water, gas, electricity and sewerage systems.

The reconstruction work started in October and will last for about a year. The works will lead to changes in traffic management and residents and road users will be kept informed.
