Estonian Railways subsidiary EVR Infra has started the renovation process on the Tallinn-Keila-Paldiski and Keila-Riisipere railways.
With new passenger trains arriving in Estonia next year, the repairs are essential for ensuring faster connections for commuters between the capital and the bedroom communities to the west.
The project is supposed to make possible a speed of 120 kph for Elektriraudtee's passenger trains and 80 kph for freight trains.
The total length of track to be renovated is approximately 50 kilometers.
The work will be carried out by Leonhard Weiss RTE AS, which was selected at public procurement, for a total of around 7 million euros.
