A more detailed technical solution for the Tallinn-Rapla sub-section of the Rail Baltica design section has been completed

RB Rail AS’s cooperation partner, the Spanish-recognized engineering company IDOM Consulting, Engineering, Architecture, has completed technical solutions for the location and intersections of the railway line for the Rail Baltica sub-section from Ülemiste to Kangru. The total length of the section is approximately 16 kilometers. This is one of the three sub-sections that remain on the 48-kilometer design section of Tallinn-Rapla.


*Displayed solutions are indicative and may change during the master design phase.


The 16-kilometer section from Ülemiste to Kangru includes two railway bridges and seven road bridges across the railway.


The section provides for one local stop – Assaku. Regional stops will be further developed by Rail Baltic Estonia OÜ in the near future.


The technical solutions of the project section have been introduced to all local governments in the route corridor. However, the final work projects will be completed after the comments received from the environmental impact assessment have been introduced.


The detailed technical design of the section from Tallinn to the border of Rapla County will be completed in 2021. Rail Baltic Estonia OÜ and the Road Administration have already started preparing the first procurements for ordering the construction of road viaducts.


Construction of road viaducts and ecoducts is expected to start in 2021.
