"If all goes according to plan, the first train bound for the Lithuanian-Polish border will depart from Tallinn in around 2025," Rubesa told the Lithuanian business daily.
"The question remains: what about that part of the railway that should run through Poland to Berlin? I think that that work will take another five years. But we have to prepare for this now to ensure that plans are harmonized and agreements are signed in advance," she said.
According to Rubesa, RB Rail's key concern now is that Poland should turn from an observer into an active participant of the project, because Rail Baltica has to be a new European transport corridor linking Helsinki to Berlin.
