Idom will design 344 km of Rail Baltica project


Rail Baltica is the greenfield rail transport infrastructure project that will integrate the Baltic States (Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia), Poland, and indirectly Finland into the European rail network. For this challenge, IDOM has been awarded five out of the seven contracts to design Rail Baltica main line in Estonia, Lithuania and Latvia, thanks to the international experience that IDOM has acquired in the design of high-speed projects in Spain, as well as in Sweden, and Poland, among others.

The Latvian section will be developed alongside the firm INECO. In all these contracts account for 344 km of high-speed railway, involve about 155 structures, including the 1.7 km bridge over the Neris River, making it the longest railway bridge in the Baltic States. This large infrastructure will also be suitable for freight traffic, with a design speed of 249 km/h for passenger traffic and 120 km/h for freight traffic. IDOM is already developing the value engineering, basic design and detailed design of the entire infrastructure and track superstructure.

In addition, IDOM will carry out the design supervision of the project during the construction phase.
