And here's the latest of Riisipere-Turba section reconstruction on Westbound network. Part of former Tallinn-Haapsalu line. There's still hope that one day entire line gets rebuilt...

Alustuseks paar reede hommikust. Unine Riisipere pole vist lähikümnenditel nii tegus olnud. Lisaks raudtee ehitusele toimub ka Riisipere ja Nissi vaheline teeremont.




Jaamas jäi silma jaamahoone kõrvale valatud betoonkamakas. Kirjade järgi on Mipro Oy alustanud liiklusjuhtimissüsteemi ehitust ning see on ilmselt jaama fooride kontrollerite või elektrisüsteemi vundament. Tegu peaks olema soomlaste rajatavate fooride jm esimese ehitusega Läänesuunal. Kõik muu senine on olnud rohkem ettevalmistav tegevus.




Jätkub...

Turba ja Riisipere vaheline raudtee.

So nice to see the line being rebuilt!

How did you get it to happen? It does seem to take quite a bit of work and political will

It takes little work and strong lobby by municipal politicians and local businessmen.

Only major changes to former railway are track alignment changes in few places to accommodate higher max speeds and probable multilevel crossing on T9 highway. Only major opposition to project comes from ministries responsible for funding the project. Even prime minister has stated the need to continue line rebuilding,so time will tell how long it takes to have it built all the way til Haapsalu.
Problem is that such small project will get overshadowed by Rail Baltic and various main line construction projects in about 5 years time. Funding for entire line needs to be secured before that. Ideally it would also need to be built before that.

Obviously the line should be rebuilt all the way till Haapsalu, otherwise it's a line to "nowhere" (very small towns and villages), to some extent constituting a waste of money.

Fresh photos from Keila town in Tallinn metro area. Station is junction on Westbound tracks. During this summer southern side of station had track switches and tracks replaced,minor changes to catenary and construction of new station platform. Atm Finnish company Mipro is doing traffic control system and lights replacement.
In next year station will have entire northern side and two lane railway crossing rebuilt.

Some freight train action in Vaivara, North-East Estonia (close to the port of Sillamäe). And no, this wasn't filmed last winter but just 4 days ago (not by me).
