The public procurement announced last year failed as every submitted offers exceeded the estimated cost of the construction by approximately €11 million.

"There will be a new procurement in which the planned Reidi Road and the arrangement of traffic on Narva Highway has been changed somewhat," Tallinn Mayor Taavi Aas (Center) said in December. "These changes are the result of our negotiations with urban space activists."

With the changes made to the original plan, the number of lanes in the section of road between Reidi Road and Narva Highway has been reduced by one, and on Narva Highway by two in each direction. "In addition, there are changes concerning public transport lanes," Aas continued. "It has now been clearly detailed in the project how many lanes we see as public transport-only lanes in the future."

The 1.7-kilometer Reidi Road is to run from the intersection of Jõe and Ahtri Streets, through the port area and along the seafront to the intersection at the Russalka Memorial. The first stage of Reidi Road, which will run from Jõe Street to Pikksilma Street, was approved at the end of 2016.

Construction of Reidi Road was initially planned to be completed in October 2018.
