Rail Baltic Route Agreed in Pärnu County ({{commentsTotal}})


The thorny process of finding a route for the future Rail Baltic project through northern Pärnu County has a solution.

Pärnu County Governor Andres Metsoja announced Thursday at a meeting of the steering committee that the process is now complete for the county.

The process was made difficult by the large proportion of private land to the north of Pärnu city.

Vändra municipality wanted the line to run along the existing corridor, but this option was never considered.

The chosen route is 2 kilometers longer than originally planned and will be more expensive in the short run. Locals maintain it will be cheaper in the long run, as it involves less compulsory purchase of private land.
