Rail Baltica, connecting the Baltic States with the European rail network
Estonia | Latvia | Lithuania
Rail Baltica is a large-scale project that will connect the Baltic States (Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia), Poland and, indirectly, Finland with the current European rail network.
For this challenge, IDOM has been chosen in six of the contracts to carry out the construction design and design supervision during construction in the sections of:
- Tallinn to Rapla (Estonia)
- Pärnu to Rapla (Estonia)
- Main line through Riga (Latvia)
- Mass at the Latvian / Lithuanian Border (Latvia)
- Kaunas to Ramygala (Lithuania)
- Ramygala to Lithuanian / Latvian Border (Lithuania)
In total, these contracts total 393 km of high-performance rail, including stations, tunnels, and up to 179 structures, one of which is the 1.7 km long bridge over the Neris River, which will become the longest railway bridge in the Baltic countries. The new railway line is designed with a track gauge of 1,435 mm, in line with all the requirements of the TSI (Technical Specifications for Interoperability). In addition, this transport system will reach 249 km / h for passenger traffic and 120 km / h for freight traffic. The project is being developed in a BIM environment.
