The project, part of the "Rail Baltica" corridor linking Warsaw-Kaunas-Riga-Tallinn-Helsinki, (Priority Project 27) involves the Latvian section Kaunas-Riga-Tallinn.
The project involves feasibility and technical studies on a new gauge line in line with European standards for Latvia within the Rail Baltica corridor. The feasibility study is conducted jointly with Estonia and Lithuania.
Both studies will enable the Latvian authorities to decide on the construction of a new European gauge, with a view to make it interoperable with the EU neighbouring countries and ultimately increase the use of rail transport for passengers and freight.
