On Friday from 11am until 9pm, pedestrian access to Linnahall will be restricted. Pedestrians can reach Linda Line harbour through Kalasadama Street. Vehicles can reach A-terminal through Logi, which will temporarily be a two way street.

It should also be taken into consideration that on Friday the Circle K petrol station on Põhja puiestee will be shut for pedestrians and vehicles.
