Lietuvos Geležinkeliai (Lithuanian Railways) said that China Railway Construction Corporation International is sending its specialists to Vilnius because it is interested in offering its services as a contractor.

Minister of Transport Rimantas Sinkevičius at the time said that Lithuania did not need any additional investment in the project which is mostly financed by the European Union.
