On January 17, 2022, an agreement was signed between the joint venture Rail Baltica, the overall coordinator of the project RB Rail AS and an international consortium for the engineering and project management of the Control Command and Signalling works for Rail Baltica.

A consortium led by mobility specialist Systra and made up of the railway branch of Egis and the Italian Italferr won a contract on January 17 to provide engineering and project management services for the preparation, procurement, and supervision of the deployment of the control command and Signalling subsystem for the Rail Baltica high-speed line. 

the project company RB Rail AS judged Systra's bid to be the most advantageous in terms of price (563,065 euros) compared to the three other bids, which came from a Franco-Lithuanian consortium led by Egis Rail, from DB Engineering & Consulting, and from another German firm, Gauff Rail Engineering.

Supported by Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania, through the joint venture Rail Baltica and the overall project coordinator RB Rail AS, the double-track High-Speed Rail project equipped with the European Rail Traffic Management System concerns a line of some 870 km. A route that is to connect Tallinn to the border between Lithuania and Poland, via Pärnu, Riga, Panevėžys, and Kaunas, with a running speed of 250 km/h.

This dedicated passenger and freight line will be interoperable with the rest of the continent's trans-European transport network and competitive with other transport modes. It will be connected to 7 international passenger railway stations, 3 multimodal terminals, airports, seaports as well as several regional passenger stations, maintenance facilities, and interfaces with the existing 1520 mm rail network, the rail gauge still in use in the Baltic States.
