Spāru svētki "Rail Baltica" Rīgas dzelzceļa stacijai

Main structure of Rail Baltica's Rīga Central Station completed

Rail Baltica has reached the highest point (literally) in the construction of Riga Central Railway station – a mark of almost 30 meters. Builders symbolically celebrated the topping out on Thursday, February 29.

The builders, along with representatives of the “European Railway Lines,” lifted a wreath over the roof structure. It has a diameter of 1,435 millimeters, symbolically as many as the European latitude tracks. Plants brought from closer and farther European lands – Latvian pine tree, Lithuanian spruce, Estonian juniper, Italian olive tree, and others – are entangled in the wreath.

Building basic structures and reaching the roof took three years and three months. 

The station building itself is expected to be completed by the end of 2025.

This month, the first of eight parts of Riga Central hub was commissioned. The construction of engineering communications at the intersection of Dzirnavu Street, Turgeņeva Street (now V. Purvīša Street) and Abrenes Street has been completed.

In the next phase, it is planned to start construction of the railway – to install new tracks and contact networks, alarms and engineering networks. It is planned to end the construction of Gogoļa Street (now E. Benjamiņas Street) rail transmission in the spring.
