The Transport Agency must reduce operating expenses by 6.7 percent or 3.7 million in next year’s budget. The cuts could lead to the loss of icy roads and roadside toilets and rubbish bins, Postman.

Kaido Padar, the head of the Transport Department, said in a program called “Directly from the Postman” that it was decided to go on such emotional projects as ice roads. There are a total of seven ice roads in Estonia, two of which were open last winter. He added that there were fears that cuts would have to be made at the expense of rubbish bins and toilets along the roads. Ice roads, roadside bins and toilets cost a total of 1.5 million.
