Rail Baltica Announces Tender for Estonian Railway Construction

Rail Baltic Estonia has announced a set of tenders for the construction of underlying infrastructure for a 52.6-kilometre extension of its mainline railway.

Work is expected to commence on 74 kilometres of the Rail Baltica Estonian Route by the middle of 2025, extending the line from the Ülemiste terminal to the Harju County border.

Anvar Salomets, the Chief Executive Officer of Rail Baltic Estonia, said:

“The construction of the Rail Baltica mainline is undoubtedly a priority for us in 2024 and the following years. One year from now, we aim to see active railway infrastructure construction on more than a third of the Estonian part of the future high-speed railway. This will allow us to stay on schedule to commence rail traffic in 2030.”

The tenders, worth roughly 400 million EUR, concern the construction of five sections of the mainline extension in both Harju and Rapla counties, including Soodevahe – Kangru, Kangru – Saku, Saku – Harju/Rapla county border, Hagudi – Alu and Alu – Kärpla. To date, construction on around 20 railway intersections has begun in these areas.
