WCN Editorial Team 1 Jun 2021 EUROPE TRANSPORT INFRASTRUCTURE

A consortium of Indra's civil engineering subsidiary Prointec and Forma 2 has secured a contract worth over €5.85m for the Rail Baltica station at Riga International Airport in Latvia.

The scope of work under the contract involves supervision of the engineering and construction of the Riga International Airport station.

The station will include station building, new railway line, access tracks and 10-meter-high overpass, which will connect the terminal to the airport facilities. This is claimed to be the first intermodal walkway of its kind in Latvia.

The Rail Baltica station will be a modern, multifunctional passenger service complex that will be connected to the airport infrastructure and provide new mobility opportunities and amenities for passengers.

The 870-km double-track railroad will provide fast, secure and sustainable connection between the capital cities of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania.

Claimed to be the first high-speed rail and air connection facility in the Baltic countries, the station will also provide direct connectivity to the rest of Europe.

Indra stated that the project is for 10 years and includes supervision work of the station’s construction phase as well as five years of services during warranty phase.

In the future, the railway line is planned to be extended to Finland through a tunnel under the Baltic Sea to connect Tallinn and Helsinki.

Recently, Network Rail has announced a £33m investment to deliver a new train depot and staff accommodation facilities within the existing Cadder railway yard, between Bishopbriggs and Lenzie, in the UK.

The funding will be used to build three new service platforms and night-time accommodation for six High Speed Trains (HSTs) and a new modular building that can accommodate up to 250 support staff working on Scotland’s Railway.
