Rail Baltica Final Report (2011)

Executive Summary


This report is the output from a feasibility study undertaken to identify the most feasible development option for a standard European gauge (1435mm) line between Marijampole and Tallinn via Kaunas and Riga using a ‘top-down’ transport strategy covering all three Baltic States and an EU – wide rail network rationale.

The role of this project is to deliver a comprehensive decision base for the construction of a new 1435 mm gauge line. The study focusses on detailed and quantitative analysis of various issues identified for further research within “Feasibility Study on Rail Baltica Railways, January 2007”, financed by Directorate-General for Regional Policy.
