The Ülemiste station will become the final station of the new European-style Rail Baltica railway, which will run through all Baltic countries up to the Lithuanian-Polish border and connect them with Europe
November 11, 2019
Zaha Hadid Architects (ZHA) won the competition for the construction of a new railway station in Tallinn. It will be located in the Ülemiste district near the international airport and will be the end point of the new 870 km long high-speed railroad Rail Baltica, which will run through all the Baltic states and connect Estonia with Europe.
The ZHA project, developed in cooperation with the Estonian firm Esplan, is a hybrid of a railway station and a pedestrian bridge over the highway and railroad tracks. The station will be used for local and international rail links and will be connected to the airport and public transport.
The competition for the construction of the station in Ülemiste was held from May to September 2019.
