Central bus terminal to be moved during construction of Rail Baltica

During the construction of Rail Baltica railway line, the Riga bus terminal will be moved to the Torņakalns neighborhood on the left bank of River Daugava. It will later operate as a regional terminal, Dzintars Balodis, the head of the city's urban development department said April 12.

Riga City Council has started work on two projects related to Rail Baltica – construction of the multimodal transport hub in Torņakalns and reconstruction of Riga Central Market. Plans for other adjacent territories will be drawn up later when there is clarity about the adjacent territories affected by the Rail Baltica project and the solutions proposed for their development.

The EU Cohesion Fund has provided €7 million to this project, providing for the construction of a new regional coach terminal, a parking area and a passenger terminal. The local authority has so far allocated €290,000 for drawing up the project’s technical plan.
