[10/2/2020] Estonia: reduction in travel time between the country’s two largest cities
Since 2017, teams from TREV-2 Grupp (Eurovia) have been building part of this section—a 12-kilometre segment in a dual 2-lane configuration between Kose and Ardu, including multiple-level crossroads, rest areas, parking zones, and wildlife passageways and tunnels.
In addition to the 12-kilometre segment of the main carriageway, which required major earthworks, a new 1.8-kilometre low-traffic section was built to connect the motorway to Ardu, thereby providing road access to schools, one of the new rest areas, and electric-bicycle stations—a first for a rural zone.
This is one of the most important projects carried out in Estonia since the country’s independence. In fact, the media in Estonia has called it the “construction project of the century”.
