Pronksi and Gonsiori street intersection temporarily closed due to construction
Due to the full-scale reconstruction works of Jõe and Pronksi streets, the intersection of Pronksi and Gonsiori streets will be closed to traffic from Tuesday, 2 May until 30 June. The closure is connected to the construction of the underground communication lines in the area of the intersection.The closest bypass is via Kreutzwaldi Street. In addition, the right turn from Pronksi Street to Kunderi Street when driving from the direction of Liivalaia and Rävala Avenue has been opened since 29 April. The closure will not cause additional changes to public transport routes.
The complete reconstruction of Jõe and Pronksi streets began in the autumn of last year. This will transform the current car-centred streetscape into a modern and safe one that takes all modes of traffic into consideration. As a result of the reconstruction, pedestrians’ movement possibilities will be improved and bicycle paths separated from the main road as well as green pockets as small stopovers for pedestrians will be created. In addition, the streets will have plenty of new greenery – an alley of trees will adorn the street on both sides. In total, 43 new trees and 1372 bushes will be planted during the reconstruction.
All of the underground systems will be updated – water, sewer systems, gas, electrical systems. Infrastructure for up-to-date streetlighting will also be built.
