Jobs and Contribution to Economy

Everyone will benefit – both those on the road and those who stay put.


Covid-19 has changed our everyday lives. We are staying at home, washing our hands and keeping a safe distance from each other. Fortunately, Rail Baltica is an infrastructure project that is not being put on hold at this time. On the contrary, we are working very intensively, thus providing jobs and stimulating the region’s economy overall.

In 2020, Rail Baltica’s indicative procurement value in the Baltic States is 788 million EUR. These investments will be directed primarily towards the construction of Rail Baltica international terminals in Rīga and Tallinn, and towards continuing the construction of the main line in Lithuania that runs from Kaunas to the Lithuania/Latvia border. Large-scale construction on the main line of the railway is estimated to begin in 2022.



Rail Baltica will provide a significant boost to local industries, including construction, engineering and a range of service sectors. During the peak of the construction works from 2022–2025, Rail Baltica will create approximately 13,000 new jobs in the construction industry, with 24,000 indirect and induced jobs in related industries, such as material sourcing and component manufacturing, logistics, hospitality and catering, professional services and many others. Check out current opportunities to see if there’s a position that’s right for you.



First and foremost, Rail Baltica will enable people in the Baltic Sea region to connect to each other. It also adheres to the highest environmental standards, making transportation in the region greener and healthier. At the same time, the inherent safety of rail travel combined with the project’s uncompromising safety and security targets are projected to help save more than 400 lives in the first 30 years of operation.

Suppliers from several countries (such as Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Ireland, Slovakia, Spain, and the UK) have already been involved in the Global Project. These suppliers are setting a new service standard in a range of disciplines related to the railway sector.
