EU to co-finance rail studies for new northern Greek line

Creation date: November 11, 2013

The European Union will support with €1 million from the TEN-T Programme a series of studies which are necessary for the construction of the new 43 km single railway line connecting the commercial Port of Kavala (Philippos Port) with the Greek rail network. 


The initiative, which was selected for funding under the 2012 TEN-T Annual Call, includes preliminary studies for structures and buildings, final studies for alignment, track layout and structures, detailed designs for buildings, geotechnical studies and the compilation of tender documents.

The new line will also connect with the existing Thessaloniki-Alexandroupoli rail line in the area of Toxotes Xanthi. Once completed, the studies will pave the way for the construction phase of the project.


The studies will be monitored by the Trans-European Transport Network Executive Agency (TEN-T EA) and are set to be completed by the end of 2015.
