Finnish Estonian Transport Link (FinEst Link)

Project´s webpage here

The project will create comprehensive assessment of Finnish Estonian Transport Link and a plan for the future fixed link between Helsinki and Tallinn. The project will look and explore the required development needs of traffic between Helsinki and Tallinn in the long run and assess also alternative ways of developing transport operations and physical infrastructures in the era of digitalization of mobility.

The project focuses in wider Finnish-Estonian perspective, European TEN-T perspective, transport technology development, environmental aspects and in changing socio-economic context of the emerging twin-city region. Assessment and development of the fixed link option and its’ impacts pave the way for deeper integration of regional economies, twin-city and regional co-operation, and for achieving better integration in the multimodal cross-border transport systems with significant impact on lowering the CO2 emissions.

The project has started in September 2016 and it is partly funded by the Central Baltic Interreg Programm.

 

FinEst Smart Mobility

The FinEst Smart Mobility project improves the flow of traffic from Tallinn’s Old City Harbour to Helsinki’s Jätkäsaari harbor, in particular the passengers’ customer experience. The work is conducted with various smart mobility experiments such as “park and ride” and control of heavy traffic. The plans also include improvements in the connections from the harbours to Helsinki Airport and to the Tallinn ring road.

The project has started in September 2016 and it is partly funded by the Central Baltic Interreg Programm.
