Trakcja Group wins another contract in Lithuania

Kauno Tiltai, a Lithuanian company belonging to the Trakcja Group, signed a contract worth nearly PLN 199 million for comprehensive reconstruction of the Plungė-Šateikiai railway route.

The investment project includes an upgrade of the existing 13.9 km long track and construction of a new one, parallel to the designated route. Also, engineering facilities, such as bridges and culverts, as well as the rainwater drainage network and ERTMS equipment, will be repaired. At the Plungė and Šateikiai railway stations, the track system will be rebuilt to accommodate longer trains and thus increase the comfort of travelers. Also, new acoustic screens and safety fences will be built along the renovated route. As a result of the works, passenger trains will be able to accelerate to 160 km/h and freight trains to 120 km/h.

The entire investment project will be completed within 38 months.

The project will contribute to an increase of the capacity of the transport route between Vilnius and the Klaipeda port.

Kauno Tiltai is the largest infrastructure construction company in the Baltic States. The company specializes in the construction of roads, bridges, tunnels, railway lines, airports, water ports, and public infrastructure installations.
