The City of Helsinki (CoH), the City of Tallinn (CoT), Harju County Government (HCG), Helsinki-Uusimaa Regional Council (Uudenmaan liitto) (HURC), Finnish Transport Agency (FTA) and the Estonian Ministry of Economy and Communications (MKM) plans to undertake the Tallinn to Helsinki Railway Link project in Estonia.
The project involves the construction of a railway tunnel, or a tunnel and bridge, with a length of approximately 92km across the Baltic Sea and being planned to be implemented in phases.
It includes the construction of a two-track tunnel of 140m and a separate tunnel of 30-40m, and the installation of surveillance cameras, ventilation shafts, signaling systems, communications systems and safety systems.
The passenger's stops are in the plans which include Central Helsinki, Pasila and a terminus at Helsinki-Vantaa Airport.
The tunnel will be bored using tunnel boring machine (TBM).
Finnish geology center has commissioned a survey to study possible routes for a rail tunnel to connect Helsinki and Tallinn. The tunnel's exact length would depend upon the route taken.
In April 2014, CoH and CoT issued pre-feasibility study tender.
On September 9, 2014, Vealeidja OÜ, Sweco Projekt AS and Finantsakadeemia OÜ was awarded the pre-feasibility study contract.
In June 2016, the European Union allocated US$1.13 million for conducting a feasibility study for the project.
In November 2016, Finnish-Estonian Transport Link invited tenders for study consultant with the submission deadline of November 16, 2016, and economic assessment consultant with the submission deadline of November 22, 2016.
In February 2017, a consortium of Ramboll Finland, Sito, Strafica, Urban Research TA (Kaupunkitutkimus TA) and Pöyry Finland was appointed to undertake studies activities for estimating passenger volumes.
A consortium of Sweco, WSP and Amberg Engineering was appointed as study consultants to undertake technical and economic feasibility of the tunnel, the construction and maintenance costs.
The result of economic and technical feasibility of the project is scheduled to be revealed on February 7, 2018. Construction is expected to commence in 2030.
The project involves the construction of a 92km railway link from Tallinn to Helsinki across the Baltic Sea in Estonia.
