The Besix – Sia ReRe Büve joint venture recently announced the signing of the Rail Baltica Central Station project in Riga, Latvia. Today, we are very proud to join the adventure: our teams will be in charge of the study of the roof of the station and the canopies on the platforms, as well as the slab above the tracks.
The proposal of PLH Arkitekter – COWI won the international architectural competition in 2016. The project -430 million euros budget, jointly funded by the European Union and the Republic of Latvia- is about the construction of a new railway station, a railway bridge over the Daugava River, and railway works.
The project, which should end in 2026, is part of the Rail Baltica project, which aims to integrate the Baltic countries into the European rail network. It will connect the cities of Helsinki, Tallinn, Riga, Vilnius and Warsaw. This is the largest infrastructure project in the region for 100 years.
