Public introduction of Paldiski maantee pedestrian tunnel project

Public introduction of Paldiski maantee pedestrian tunnel project

The City of Tallinn is planning to build a pedestrian tunnel at the intersection of Paldiski maantee and Tehnika Street to improve convenience and safety for pedestrians. The public introduction of the project will take place on Wednesday, May 22, at 17:30 via Microsoft Teams.

"People will be able to use the safe Paldiski maantee tunnel while walking, and cyclists will soon have access to a new bike path in the same area. The roadway will maintain excellent traffic flow for cars and public transportation, reducing congestion for everyone's benefit," said Deputy Mayor Pärtel-Peeter Pere.

The pedestrian tunnel at the Paldiski maantee and Tehnika Street intersection will provide a safe passage through the railway embankment, better connecting the districts of Kristiine, Kesklinn, and Põhja-Tallinn. This new solution will direct pedestrians from the existing narrow sidewalk under the railway viaduct to a new, well-lit tunnel, significantly enhancing safety.

Everyone interested in learning more about the project, obtaining information about the construction work, and asking questions directly to the project designers or district representatives is welcome to join the online meeting. The public introduction will be held via Microsoft Teams: (Downloading the Teams software is not necessary; it is recommended to use the Microsoft Edge or Chrome web browser).

The meeting will be recorded and later available for viewing on the project website at
