scope of works

Preliminary and final detailed design


The “Construction Design of Rail Baltica’s Airport Riga Railway Station, related Infrastructure, and Viaduct” is a part of a bigger railway project that will integrate the Baltic States within the European railway network.

The project will connect five European Union countries – Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia and, indirectly, Finland – through seven international railway passengers’ stations – Tallinn, Pärnu, Riga Central, Riga Airport, Kaunas and Vilnius – by means of a European gauge railway line.


Sintagma’s activities concerned the Preliminary and Final Detailed Design, that included:

  • Track-way Alignment Engineering and Railway Design
  • 8 km of viaduct connect the station to the other rail line that bypasses Riga. The viaducts are in reinforced concrete consisting in a deck of double “T” precast girders continuous along 3 spans;
  • Rail Baltica railway station (with roughly 200 m platform extension inside the station and roughly 200 m outside) on a viaduct;
  • overpass crossing Ulmana Gatve (steel deck with 3 spans: 30m + 52.9m+ 30m);
  • about 2.5 km of embankment in the section from Imanta to the airport (up to 12 metres in height);
  • Reconnection Roads for a total extension of 5,7 km;
  • a cargo link to the airport area.
