New high-performance trans-European rail connection


Rail Baltica is the project with a goal to integrate the Baltic States in the European rail network: Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia and indirectly Finland also.

Last February, Rail Baltica announced that IDOM won the design of the first two sections Pärnu-Rapla and Kaunas–Ramygala (Estonia and Lithuania, respectively). As a result, IDOM is responsible for both these sections of the trans-European railway project, in total 150 km of high-performance rail (also for freight trains), 17% of the entire line. Both contracts have been signed in Tallinn and Vilnius, respectively.

The scope of the work of IDOM is to develop the Value Engineering and Basic & Detailed Design of the entire infrastructure and superstructure of the track, including the conceptual design of other subsystems, such as electrification, railway signaling, etc. In addition, once the design has been approved, IDOM will carry out the design supervision during the construction period.
