Tallinn to get new transport upgrade in new deal

Jan 16, 2014
From wire reports, TALLINN

The Estonian government is planning a law amendment that would enable the use of pollution quota finances that have been left over from the contracts concluded so far to buy four new trams from Spain, reports Public Broadcasting.

According to a procurement signed already, 16 new modern trams will be bought from Spain for revenues from selling excess pollution quotas.

Money was gained for the purchase of an additional 4 trams from residues of contracts concluded with Spain that emerged in connection with the change of investment plans, Environment Ministry spokeswoman Berit-Helena Lambi said.

The new trams, produced by the Spanish CAF company, will ride the 3rd and 4th tram lines in Tallinn. Before the new trams are introduced, the tram roadways of these lines will be reconstructed, this and next year.

In addition to the trams, three new city buses operated by natural gas will be bought and these will go to Parnu.
