Management of the privately-owned Tallinn Bus Station signed a contract today with the Astlanda Ehitus construction company by which the building will undergo renovation from June 25 to sometime in November.
The estimated one-million-euro renovation project will modernize both the interior and exterior of the downtown Tallinn building that has served as the hub of intercity coach transport since 1965.
According to Astanda Ehitus, the renovation will make the passenger lounge and cafeteria area more spacious and bring the station's information system completely up to date.
In addition, a new information desk will be added as will ticket vending machines, the company said in a statement.
Andres Osula, member of the board of the bus station, said that though the construction process will cause some inconvenience for passengers, the station's main functions such as ticket sales, passenger information services, ATMs, luggage storage and public toilets will be up and running during the renovation.
