The city announced its conditions for filming on Pärnu maantee

The Tallinn City Government presented Warner Bros. and their local representative Allfilm with conditions for movie shooting on Pärnu maantee and adjacent streets.

Traffic restrictions will be imposed for two days - from 1:00 A.M. on 29 June to 11.59 P.M. on 30 June. Restrictions apply to the section extending from Vabaduse väljak to the beginning of Tondi tänav.

According to the Transport Department, the restrictions resemble the arrangements in place in 2014 when the tramway tracks were renovated on Pärnu maantee.

Vehicles of emergency services must be provided clear passage during the shooting.

Public transport will be available during the entire period with potential temporary suspensions of no longer than 15 minutes.

Traffic on the Liivalaia and Suur-Ameerika intersection will be open subject to potential temporary closures of no longer than five minutes.

Pärnu maantee will remain open for pedestrian traffic but subject to potential suspensions of no longer than 15 minutes to ensure pedestrian safety and allow flight traffic required for filming.

Visitors must have access to the Tallinn Vital Statistics Department at Pärnu maantee 69 with temporary closures not exceeding five minutes.

One lane must be available on Pärnu maantee during night time when there is no filming - from 1:00 to 6:00 A.M. and from 11:00 to 12:00 P.M. on 29 June and from 1:00 to 6:00 A.M. and from 11:00 to 12:00 P.M. on 30 June.

Tehnika tänav, Koidu tänav and Vana-Lõuna tänav will be open for traffic subject to temporary suspensions of no longer than five minutes.

The city undertakes to close exits to Pärnu maantee from Sakala tänav, Süda tänav, Roosikrantsi tänav, Hariduse tänav, Tõnismäe tänav and Tatari tänav (with the exception of traffic bound for the Vital Statistics Department).

Also, exits to Pärnu maantee from Luha tänav and Vineeri tänav, plus exits from Deaconess Park, Paide tänav, Magdaleena tänav and Rapla tänav will be closed.

Closure requires the establishment of safety zones near public transport stops and an extensive publicity campaign informing about traffic changes in streetcars and buses, at public transport stops and by other means. Volunteers working at stops will also be used to communicate the required information to the public.
