Rail Baltica: search begins for the designer of the Vilnius railway node

The tender was announced by the company LTG Infra responsible for the implementation of the project in Lithuania. The contract with the successful tender is planned to be signed in the third quarter of this year.

“The renewal of the Vilnius railway node is an integral part of the entire project, which will create added value for the project in global terms. It is expected that the infrastructure of the Vilnius railway node will annually serve about 2.3 million passengers and carry 8.6 million tonnes of cargo,”
said Dovydas Palaima, General Manager at LTG Infra Rail Baltica Management.

The procurement procedure includes the Vilnius passenger station, which will become the international Rail Baltica station for passenger services, the regional stations of Vilnius Airport and Lentvaris, the Vilnius intermodal terminal for cargo services, freight train 1435 mm route, and connecting and approach railway roads.

The successful tenderer will be responsible for designing these facilities and their infrastructure, such as railway bridges, road overpasses, ecoducts, pedestrian underpasses and pedestrian bridges, and railway tunnels, the longest of which is expected to be 1.10 km. The halls of Vilnius and Lentvaris stations will not be changed. They will be adapted to the needs of passengers traveling on the Rail Baltica railway.

In January, LTG Infra also announced the infrastructure tender for the Kaunas railway node and the design tenders for the regional stations in Kaišiadorys and Vievis. The contracts with successful tenders are planned to be signed in the second quarter of this year.

Rail Baltica is the largest railway infrastructure project in the history of the Baltic States, which will build a fully electrified double-track European gauge railway connecting Warsaw, Kaunas, Vilnius, Panevėžys, Riga, Pärnu, and Tallinn. The total length of Rail Baltica in the Baltic States is 870 km, with 392 km in Lithuania, 265 km in Latvia and 213 km in Estonia.
