See how the construction of the Riga Central node will change the appearance of the Central station and improve the lives of citizens and visitors of the city.
“Construction company BERERIX has started building works on the southern side of Riga Central Railway Station. The building site is set up to enable continuous work and social distancing for about 100 workers employed on the site and working in day and night shifts. In order to meet all requirements, to prevent carrying and spreading of COVID-19 on the building site, and to ensure timely construction process of the Central Hub in Riga also in an emergency situation, BERERIX has assessed all on-site construction processes, performed a risk assessment for the work processes and intensity of worker interactions, as well as has prepared solutions and a work organization plan in line with the WHO guidelines and the Latvian government instructions,” explains Xavier Debruche, BERERIX project leader.
The first construction works of Rail Baltica Central Hub in Riga will be performed on a building site located between the Riga Central Railway Station and the building of the Ministry of Transport, and along the railway line between Maskavas and Lāčplēša streets. Throughout the entire period of construction, both the pedestrian and vehicular traffic arrangements around Riga Central Railway Station will remain uninterrupted and safe. Those who are interested in the process of construction may follow it on the website edzl.lv where an interactive real-time flowchart will be published. Information about the scheduled traffic restrictions will be available both on the website edzl.lv and the Global Project website info.railbaltica.org.
