Kopli cargo station is a historic railway depot, a future linear park.

Existing Situation

+ a powerful view corridor to the Old Town

- a strong spatial interruption between Pelgulinna and Kalamaja sub-districts

Natural Environment

+/- waste land, brownfield

+/- species-poor ruderal vegetation

- soil pollution

+/- of low value for pollinators but good potential for improvement

Spatial Planning and Interventions

  • creation of new pedestrian connections between subdistricts, construction of a fast bicycle path between subdistricts and centers

  • developing a green network into a linear park, increasing biodiversity
