Greek government investing in rail freight expansion

Tags: , ,


The GREEK deputy minister of infrastructure and transport has outlined plans to invest in Greece’s rail network, with a major focus on supporting growth in rail freight from ports.

The plans include reinstating rail connections to Greeceā€™s major ports at Thessaloniki, Volos and Kavala. The largest port at Piraeus has already seen significant investment in its rail connection from its owner, a Chinese shipping line.

Shipping lines have promoted Piraeus as an alternative to the North Sea ports such as Hamburg, as a sea journey from Asia to Greece is eight to nine days shorter. Containerised traffic via Greek ports increased by more than 4.5 times by weight from 2009.
