Construction Tender for Second Section of Rail Baltica Mainline in Estonia Announced

The construction tender for the second section of the Rail Baltica mainline in Estonia has been announced.

Construction work in Harju County is to begin in the second half of 2023.

Anvar Salomets, Chairman of the Board at Rail Baltic Estonia, said:

“If everything goes according to plan, we will be able to start the construction of Rail Baltica’s main line in Harju County already in the fall of this year, where the construction company will also have to work on the section starting from the Ülemiste terminal. We are also planning to announce at least a few more construction tenders for the mainline sections this year.”

Around 30 kilometres of Rail Baltica’s main route could be awarded for construction this year so that by the first half of next year around 40 kilometres of the Rail Baltica would be under construction.

Bids for the Rail Baltica mainline section in Harju County are expected until 16 March and the expected value of the contract is 24 million euros.

The section from the east side of Ülemiste Station is 4.8km and runs to the intersection of Lagedi Road in Soodevahe Rae municipality. This mainline section includes the partial construction of the embankment of the Ülemiste rolling stock depot and the construction of the embankment of the railway section of the car-carrier station.

The width of the embankment of the mainline here will be between 14 and 20 metres.
