The Tallinn City Council approved the Rail Baltic Ülemiste passenger terminal project back in December, which aims to improve public transport in the Estonian capital.
According to the plans, an area of 11.47 hectares in the Ülemiste district will be transformed into a transport hub connecting different means of transport. The new terminal building will include three platforms, a bus station, and a commercial building. There will be several means of access, a new cycle lane created, and a speed limit reduced to 30 km/h.
According to Deputy Mayor Madle Lippus, the Ülemiste terminal development supports the city’s strategic goal of attracting more people to travel by public transport, by making it more convenient. The plans are by Zaha Hadid Architects and the construction and engineering firm Esplan OÜ. The terminal and its surrounding are are due to be completed by the end of 2026.
