Modernizing the Estonian Railways
Estonian Railways (Eesti Raudtee) and Siemens Mobility – GRK Rail Consortium signs a large-scale contract to modernize the railways in Estonia.

Estonian Railways has initiated a very ambitious investment plan which will take the service quality, traffic management and safety of its rail infrastructure to a new level by 2030. Between 2020 and 2024 it plans to upgrade the safety systems on six lines of the rail network and upgrade approximately 50 stations across the country. To deliver this modernization of the rail safety systems (CCS), the contract is worth over € 115 million.

The agreement on modernizing the safety systems paves the way for migrating the entire rail network to the European signalling standard, the European Rail Traffic Management System (ERTMS / ETCS) in the future. The agreement relates to the first and second phases of the modernization plan. Migrating to ERTMS/ETCS is subject to the third phase.
