Rail Baltica is an ongoing greenfield railway infrastructure project which will link all Baltic States, including Lithuania, Poland and, eventually, Finland. Being a part of the Trans-European Transport Networks (TEN-T), it is one of the priority projects of the European Union. It will introduce the standard-gauge high-speed rail with operating speed of 249 km/h for the passenger trains. The projected is expected to be complete by 2026.
In Lithuania, 392 km (244 mi) of the new track will be constructed, including the reconstruction of Vilnius–Kaunas Railway to support the standard gauge. High speed rail will reduce the Vilnius—Kaunas route time to 38 minutes. At the project completion, the following routes will become available (with projected travel times):
