Rail Baltica Estonia has signed a construction contract with joint bidders TREV-2 Grupp and AllSpark for the initial section of the high-speed railway’s mainline section.  

The Rail Baltica railway mainline has a total line length of 870km, of which 213km is in Estonia, 265km in Latvia, and 392km in Lithuania. 

Rail Baltica Estonia is the national implementor of the railway line in Estonia. 

TREV-2 Grupp CEO Sven Pertens said: “Rail Baltic Estonia will be the main client in the field of Estonian infrastructure construction in the coming years, replacing the position previously held by the [Estonian] Transport Administration.  

“TREV-2 Grupp has already built several Rail Baltica facilities in Harju and Rapla counties in recent years.” 

The initial mainline railway section is 4.8km long and spans from the east side of the Ülemiste station to the intersection with Lagedi Road in Soodevahes, Rae Parish.

This section will also see the partial construction of the embankment for the Ülemiste station rail yard and a prospective car loading station.  

The embankment’s width for the mainline will range from 14m to 20m. 

Construction will include the creation of necessary drainage and land reclamation systems, as well as retaining walls, cable ducts, and the relocation of various utility networks.  

To allow small animals to pass through, a culvert will also be built. 

The project’s contract, valued at €34.17m ($37.38m), is being funded by the EU’s Connecting Europe Facility, which is providing 85% of the total cost.  

As per the contract, construction is expected to begin in early 2024, with completion anticipated in mid-2027.
