Lithuania’s state-run railway company Lietuvos Gelezinkeliai (Lithuanian Railways) has called a tender to rebuild the Mazeikiai-Renge railway section dismantled a decade ago.
The section was used by the Mazeikiai-based oil processing company Orlen Lietuva, owned by Poland’s Orlen, to transport its oil products to Latvia.
According to information on Lithuania’s central public procurement website, the tender winner will also have to rebuild or renovate five level-crossing, six bridges and complete other work in 400 days but the deadline might be postponed due to unforeseen circumstances.
In early August Lietuvos Gelezinkeliai board approved the investment project estimated to be worth 10 million euros. (BNN/Business World Magazine)
