AS Teede Tehnokeskus signed a contract with the Tartu city council on 09 April 2012 to carry out ownership reviews for the design and construction work for the second phase of the Tartu eastern bypass and to provide consulting and engineering services. AS Teede Tehnokeskus will provide technical, administrative and contractual supervision for the design and construction work on the project.
The second phase of the Tartu eastern bypass is a stretch of road between the Turu and Lammi roads and is one part of the planned 11.8-km road that will run round the eastern side of the city. The main road will be part of the trans-European TEN-T network and will link the E263 Tallinn-Tartu-Võru-Luhamaa road and the E264 Jõhvi-Tartu-Valga road. The stretch between the Turu and Lammi roads runs through the territories of Tartu city and Ülenurme district. The government has confirmed the budget for the design and building of the eastern bypass at 44,998,763 euros in the national investment programme for transport, and the EU’s cohesion fund will cover 85% of this, providing 38.2 million euros to finance the work.
