The joint venture that is executing the Rail Baltica project –a rail network for passengers and freight that will connect Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania with Finland and Poland and the rest of Europe– has awarded the Spanish engineering firms IDOM and Ineco the technical design contract for a 56-kilometre high-speed section in the city of Riga, consisting of three subsections: Upeslejas central station-Riga (in the image); Tonsakalns-Imanta and Riga International Airport-Misa River. The project, which was awarded in May, has a 24-month deadline.

Ineco is already working on two other contracts for Rail Baltica, in this case in consortium with the Spanish company Ardanuy: the implementation of energy systems and definition of maintenance facilities on the entire 870-kilometre line.
