Rail Baltic is taking shape

Does not make much sense... For a long term profitable rail traffic and to take most advantage of the existing infrastructure, the route Tallinn - Riga should go through Tartu and not Parnu. The terrain around Parnu will require massive engineering works, and the population covered by the rail will be much more important on the Tartu line. This is quite even more the case on the Latvian side. There is a good population density already around Valmeria, Cesis, Sigulda and existing rail infrastructure. So there must be some political push there from Parnu, because the economic rationales are not there, except for a speedy train, which would not be affordable anyway. I suggest you redo your homework before you invest. Reply to the comment answer

The proposition from Brussels is a direct connection shortcut over Pärnu with german gauge at higher speed (200km/h max).
Is this in the interest of the people or just a bureaucratic plan?
Rails have to connect people and make an economy flexible. Forget about making money with the public transport, but it will improve the logistics and disclosure of the country. Reply to the comment answer

Don't be silly, these are just wild dreams.

No-one in their right minds is going to invest billions in a country which already is getting cash more per head of population than any other EU country, and hasn't even the population the size of a small German city.

Ignore this nonsense, it took 25 years to construct TGV Est from France to Lux and Germany, and that connects solid size regions together with serious financial clout. Reply to the comment answer
