The European Climate, Infrastructure and Environment Executive Agency (CINEA), joint venture of the Baltic States RB Rail AS, the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Communications of Estonia, the Ministry of Transport of Latvia and the Ministry of Transport and Communications of Lithuania signed additional cross-border Grant Agreement on the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) funding for Rail Baltica.

The total budget of the Agreement is 19.7 million euros, of which the CEF contribution will be of a maximum amount of 16.7 million euros or 85% of total eligible costs under this agreement. The remaining 15% will be financed by the governments of the Baltic States.

The Grant Agreement includes the following activities:

  • Design of Kaunas railway infrastructure in station area (Phase I) in Lithuania;
  • Design of Kaunas infrastructure maintenance facility in Lithuania;
  • Design modifications to enable Riga Node operational developments in Latvia;
  • Modification of Riga Central Station railway section detailed technical design, based on the Rail Baltica operational plan in Latvia;
  • Cekule site study, identification of unexploded ordnance (UXO) in former Cekule military area in Latvia;
  • Pärnu County Planning in Estonia;

This grant agreement is the last one under the 2014-2020 financial period. Under the 2014 – 2020 EU Multiannual Financial Framework period, together with the newly signed agreement the three Baltic states and RB Rail AS have signed in total seven grants designed under the European Union funding instrument CEF for the construction of the Rail Baltica conventional railway infrastructure. Together with the previously signed grant agreements, Rail Baltica has thereby already secured around 1.14 billion euros from the EU and national funds.
