Integrating the Rail Baltica project into the city’s infrastructure30.01.2024
Contracting Authority of the project: City Development Department of Riga City Council.
Design and construction – RBBL general partnership.
Participants: road construction company Binders SIA, LNK Industries AS, Nordes būve SIA.
Supervision of the construction: Firma L4 SIA.
The work took place at a busy transport interchange where different transport infrastructures interconnect.
The project involved the reconstruction of five high-traffic intersections in the area.
The entire length of the Ģenerāļa Radziņa krastmala was reconstructed, with a new pavement structure and the renewal of underground engineering communications. Two bridges over the city canal were rebuilt.
On Ģenerāļa Radziņa krastmala, the cycle path was resurfaced and a pedestrian and cycle ramp was built to connect to the future Rail Baltica railway bridge over the Daugava.
Ģenerāļa Radziņa krastmala has been transformed into an environmentally friendly and accessible area. The previously bleak, degraded area opposite the Central Market has been transformed into a new functional zone with a landscaped recreation area. At its centre are two main elements – a wooden landscaping element and the “heart” of the project – a red oak tree, which was moved overnight under difficult conditions from its previous location in the construction zone to another place, where it was planted and took root.
