Rail Baltic Estonia – Ülemiste Joint Terminal

Project of the Month . November 2023

Ground-borne noise and vibration assessment incl. insertion loss

Ülemiste Station in Tallinn will be the terminus of Rail Baltica, a rail link across the Baltic States that is expected to open in 2030. Rail Baltica high-speed trains will connect the three Baltic capitals with Poland via the new standard gauge railway. The Ülemiste terminus is designed by Zaha Hadid Architects.

VCE has been instructed to carry out a detailed ground-borne noise and vibration assessment for the station building, including a numerical 3D prediction model with the scope of defining the required insertion loss curves for the track system, to protect future users of the station terminal. The project is carried out on behalf of Sealable Solutions GmbH, a provider of under ballast mats.
