As RB Rail Board Chairman Agnis Driksna said: “It's been several years of design, preparation, and there is now that intensive part of construction when we see that the ramp will start to rise. There is no other option: we must begin to end. ”
The end date could be affected by the new requirements that have led to modifying certain parts of the station. A year ago, it was decided that the station had to have an increased explosion hold. There will also be security poles around the station to stop cars.
Andis Linde, spokesman for the BeReRix Supervisory Council, said: “There is a certain amount of [explosives] that it has to hold. Not only the base construction but also the glazed facades. It certainly affects time limits, but the customer – the European Railway Lines and Transport Ministry – is aware of this, but in this case, safety and public protection are more important."
The project follows a plan, the total increase in the price of workforce and raw materials has not affected the construction deadlines. Transport Minister Talis Linkaits (Conservatives) stated: if the increase is very high, only extras will be postponed, not the construction itself.
“Perhaps if there is any significant increase, we can give up some element of luxury. Let us say, the facade special design or greening work,” the minister said.
