The green Lindakivi bridge was opened during the Lasnamäe Days. The landscaping of the first green concept bridge in the district of Lasnamäe was created by the city gardeners together with local residents.
„Everyone in Tallinn probably know the bridges of Laagna road.
We decided to shape them with an aim to be a part of the urban
space. The bridge is also a good example of how to, without any
big investments, design a bridge in such a way that it becomes
an attractive and an interesting place. Lindakivi bridge was
chosen because it is an important pathway for the pedestrians
and it connects two highly populated parts of the district. It
is located between the Lindakivi Culture Centre and the Kotka
shop. In the future, the majority of the Laagna road bridges
should be green as well,“ said the head of the Lasnamäe
District, Vladimir Svet.
As a part of the landscaping, the lower sides were planted with
heathers, Virginia creepers and chrysanthemums. A very special
element of the bridge are special vases made by a local artist
Liisi Ansip – the vases/flowerpots were made by reusing
200-litre barrels that will be used for planting seasonal
flowers and plants. The outdoor furniture will be created in
cooperation with NGO LasnaIdee.
The green installations will stay on the bridge until the first
cold nights with temperatures below zero arrive. Should the
project receive a warm welcome by locals, the green
installations will be renewed in the spring.
The Lindakivi green bridge was created in cooperation of the
Lasnamäe District Government and Hortes gardening centre.
Tallinn Botanic Garden and the Tallinn Urban Environment and
Public Works Department also supported creating the bridge.
