One of the oldest railway stations in Tallinn celebrated its 150th anniversary last year. Although the station has been constantly updated over the years, no new structures and platforms have been added to it over time. “We are very pleased to start the reconstruction of Baltic Railway Station, an important junction for Tallinn, because no new structures have been built there for decades, and the last major platform repairs were carried out in 2012,” commented Riho Vyatkin, Head of the Railway Construction Department of Eesti Raudtee.
