The tender for design and design supervision services for the construction of railway track substructure, superstructure and related civil structures has a proposal deadline of June 18.

Rail Baltica is a joint venture of three states: Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania, to construct a new standard gauge passenger and freight high-speed double track, electrified railway, which will better integrate the three countries into the European railway network.

The full railway will be around 870km-long, of which 265km will be in Latvia.
