Nordecon, Estonia’s largest construction group, has announced that it has won a €30.5m contract for the third stage of infrastructure work on the Estonian leg of Rail Baltica.

The scope includes the section of the Raplamaa line running between Hagudi and Alu. As well as laying track, the company will build 7km of railway embankments, two animal tunnels, a pedestrian tunnel in Alu, and access roads.

Work will be carried out by Nordecon subsidiary Tariston, and completed by November 2027.

It was recently estimated that the price of the complete 870km line, will rise €19bn to €24.8bn, four times the original 2017 estimate of €5.8bn.

In June 2023, the EU awarded €928m in funding to the project.

Construction on the Ülemiste Passenger Terminal in Tallinn, Estonia, designed by Estonia’s Esplan and the UK’s Zaha Hadid Architects, began in the same month.
