On 30 June, representatives from Latvia’s Ministry of Transport, the Rail Baltica joint venture RB Rail AS, SIA Eiropas Dzelzceļa līnijas and cooperation partners came together to open the construction site.

It is planned that the construction team will consist of 65 leading specialists from B.S.L. Infra consortium, with up to 300 workers employed during the busiest construction period.

Work will be performed in five stages in order to minimise disruption at the airport, and is expected to be complete by December 2025.

The first stage will include the construction of the Rail Baltica infrastructure from the existing railway station Imanta to Riga International Airport, as well as construction of the station terminal, which is planned for completion by March/April 2023.
