Rail Baltica has presented the first visualisations for what the infrastructure will look like once operational. The visualisations reveal the design of pedestrian overpasses and tunnels, noise barriers, fences, animal passages, embankments and cuts, and regional stations.
Rail Baltica’s new digital information centre informs readers about the infrastructure elements, along with where they will be located and how the design was chosen.
RB Rail AS has been working with the Italian architectural firm 3TI Progetti to achieve the visualisations. 3TI Progetti has created the visual identity guidelines for the whole Rail Baltica project. Having such a set of guidelines gives the project a harmonised look for the infrastructure across all three project countries – Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia.
Prior to developing the visual network identity, Rail Baltica consulted several stakeholder groups to determine their expectations and learn from their expertise. These stakeholder groups included architects, as well as landscape architects, universities, railway administrators, and municipalities in all three states. RB Rail AS also investigated the needs of different passenger groups, such as families, senior citizens and PRMs so that all passengers will be able to access the new high-speed service.
“Architectural and visual guidelines aim to provide railway designers and architects with clear instructions on how to ensure a common identity to all the elements of the railway network. It was a challenging task, but we have managed to align different expectations and ambitions of each country into a common approach which defines the identity of the Rail Baltica network.”
RB Rail AS is the multinational joint venture between Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania to co-ordinate the Rail Baltica Global Project, which is co-financed by the EU’s Connecting Europe Facility (CEF).
