Certain traffic changes will be implemented in the Tallinn Port area due to the construction of Reidi tee effective late Thursday, 5 September.
Lootsi street and the section of Jõe street between Karu street
and Ahtri intersection will be open for traffic. At the same
time, the section of Tuukri street preceding the
Ahtri-Lootsi-Tuukri-Jõe intersection will be closed.
“One lane for each direction will be opened on Jõe street which
means that road users will then be able to drive on Jõe street
starting from Narva maantee-Pronksi street intersection and
turn onto Ahtri street as well as come from the opposite
direction and turn from Ahtri street onto Jõe street. Further,
Lootsi street will be opened for traffic to allow entering and
exiting the port using Ahtri street. Vehicles cannot yet go
straight across the intersection from Jõe street onto Lootsi
street as drivers need to take small detour by turning onto
Ahtri street,” explained Central District Elder Vladimir
At the same time, as from 22:00 P.M. on 5 September the section
of Tuukri street between Lootsi side street ja Ahtri
intersection will be closed meaning that vehicles cannot go
straight from Tuukri street onto Ahtri street. Drivers who used
Tuukri street to get to Mere puiestee now need to use
Uus-Sadama street or Lootsi street or Narva maantee. Lootsi
side street will continue to remain closed for traffic.
“We acknowledge that construction work causes trouble for local
residents and other road users in the port area and apologise
for any inconvenience. We ask all road users to pay close
attention to road signs and avoid the port area whenever
possible,” added the District Elder.
