80% of companies assess the conditions of purchases of Rail Baltica positively

“At the end of last year, we launched a dynamic procurement system for the construction of Rail Baltica overpasses. Construction companies have been actively responding to our purchases, and so far the competition has been fierce. This year we want to sign contracts for the construction of at least three more crossings and initiate purchases for the construction of other facilities”, said Tõnu Grünberg, Chairman of the Board of Rail Baltic Estonia.

Grunberg noted that the first construction contracts demonstrate that Estonian construction companies are very well prepared for the implementation of the Rail Baltica project.
