At the same time, the trajectory of the bus lines 27, 36, 61 and 62 will change from 10 am to 6 pm.
Due to the significant temporary changes in traffic management and the diversion of the bus lines, one should reserve more time than usual for reaching destinations in the area.
Intersections of Paldiski Road with Järveotsa, Astangu, Tagala, Moonalao, Veerme, Mäeküla and Tähetorni streets will be closed on Sunday from 9.30 am to 5.50 pm.
