Tallinn City has successfully reached the end of talks with all landowners in the area for constructing a tram and pedestrian pathway connecting Vanasadama and the Rail Baltic to the Ülemiste Travel Terminal and ensuring its openness to the public.
From Monday, 3 July, the Narva mnt-Hobujaama-Laikmaa intersection will be closed as part of the next stage of the Vanasadam tramway construction. As such, tram lines 1, 2, 3 and 4 will be halted until the end of August. Viru terminal will be temporarily closed and public transport redirected.
The construction of the Vanasadam tramway will cause traffic changes in the area around the intersection of Kursi Street and Põhja pst. until mid-September. From Tuesday 6 June, the section of Kursi Street in front of the Tallinn Creative Hub will be closed to traffic. From 26 June, the intersection of Põhja pst. and Kursi Street will also be closed.
18 linden trees on Ahtri and Kai streets and Narva Road will be replanted in a new location because of the construction of the Vanasadama tramway. Work on Kai Street will start today, on 11 April.
The construction of the Vanasadama tram line will change the appearance of several streets in Tallinn's city centre, and at the intersection of Gonsiori and Laikmaa streets (a.k.a Kaubamaja junction), pedestrians will be able to cross on the ground instead of the tunnel.
