Railway axis of the Ionian/Adriatic intermodal corridor

These new rail links are founded on Greece’s geographical position at the crossroads between Europe, Africa and Asia. The two interlinked routes will increase the capacity for intermodal links between sea and rail transport by connecting the major ports in Greece with each other, and with the main rail routes to the rest of Europe. This axis will complete the missing rail infrastructure in northern Greece, allowing the operation of the so-called Egnatia railway axis. Connections between the rail networks of southeastern Europe (Greece, the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Bulgaria and Turkey) will become easier and more efficient.
