Minister sees perspective to increase cargo volumes going through Estonia

"I see perspective to increase transit ridership through Estonia. We have enough free capacity both on the railway and in the ports for fast and quality treatment of merchandise," Minister of Economic Affairs and Infrastructure Taavi Aas said at a meeting with Yevgeny Dietrich, Russian Minister of Transport.

Aas confirmed to the Russian colleague, that Estonia will continue to invest in the railway infrastructure and is going to ensure a 120-135 km/h speed limit on the Tallinn-Narva route. “Also it is important to continue our cooperation to decrease the time spent on border operations and thus speed up the movement of passengers between the two countries,” said Aas. The minister added, that Estonia is interested in the possible train connection on the Pihkva-Petseri-Koidula railway line, which could also be connected with Tartu and Tallinn.

Aas and Dietrich also discussed topics around direct railway connection, highway transportation agreement and talked about the flight and shipping connections.
