Railway line between Antirrio and Ioannina, studies for designing of the new line Antirrio-Ioannina


Priority Project 29 (Railway axis of the Ioanian/Adriatic intermodal corridor) consists of two interlinked routes (Kozani-Kalambaka-Igoumenitsa and Ioannina-Antirrio-Rio-Kalamata), which will lead to the increase of the capacity for intermodal links between sea and rail transport. These routes aim to connect the major ports in Greece with each other, and with the main rail routes to the rest of Europe.


The project is focused on the studies necessary for the alignment of the railway line Antirrio-Ioannina, which constitutes part of the second line of Priority Project 29.


The railway line Antirrio-Ioannina will contribute to the improvement of the railway network's interconnection with other means of transport, through the promotion of combined transport, especially in ports, airports and other transit freight centres (Thriassio Pedio, etc.), passengers' transfer and freight transhipment centres.
