Macedonian railway reinstatement contract
07 Feb 2014

MACEDONIA: Work is set to start in March to reinstate the 31 km Kumanovo – Beljakovce line as the initial phase of a long-planned railway between Kumanovo and Deve Bair on the Bulgarian border, after infrastructure manager MZ Infra and Wiebe signed a €39·8m contract during December.

The route forms part of Pan-European Corridor VIII from the Adriatic to the Black Sea. The rehabilitation work is to be financed using an €46·4m EBRD loan, with completion scheduled for the third quarter of 2016.

The line to Beljakovce opened in 1956 as the initial phase of the international route. However, services were suspended in 1994, and construction of the next 34 km to Kriva Palanka ceased with around a third of the work completed.

Completion of this section and construction of the unstarted 23 km continuation to the Bulgarian border and railhead at Gyueshevo is now planned for 2016-22.

Pardon my ignorance, but...

1) is the expected level of traffic so high that the existing connection through
Gevgelija/Idomeni not enough to handle it ?

2) did OSE not close the lines to Florina and Kozani recently ? Was it definitive or just for reconstruction ?

First of all, the level of traffic in Macedonia is not high, this railroad is existing but not in function more than 20 years. It is important for developing of the region and also for the new industrial zone Zabeni. Also I think that there will be many passengers from both sides.

According to your second question, the line from florina and kozani is NOT closed because on the train timetable of OSE there are few trains daily to Florina.

Picture of the existing railroad which will be reconstructed.

I think the newly reconstructed railroad will revive the Florina/Lerin - Bitola region and will see passengers from both sides. The new Zabeni industrial zone could attract more foreign investors once the railroad is completed.

Just checked, there are still indeed 3 trains per day to Florina, but the Kozani
branch seems closed for passengers. No trace of trains there in the last version
of the OSE schedules http://www.trainose.gr/sites/default...iko_diktyo.pdf

Macedonia Buys New Trains from China

Macedonia's antiquated rolling stock is to be modernized after it signed a deal for the purchase of six new passenger trains from China at a cost of 25 million euro.


Macedonian Finance Minister Zoran Stavreski and Transport Minister Mile Janakieski signed a deal on Tuesday to buy four diesel and two electric trains from the Chinese company CSR Corporation Ltd.

The new trains, which can transport around 200 people each, will be enough to carry some 60 per cent of Macedonia’s existing passenger trafic.

The money for the new trains comes from a 50 million euro loan secured by the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development intended solely for the modernization of Macedonia's antiqued railways.

Macedonia will spend the rest of the money on 150 new cargo wagons and on the modernization of existing passenger trains.

After more than 30 years without a significant modernization effort, the new trains that will start arriving in Macedonia from July next year are expected to revitalize a system that in recent times has seen a decline in passenger traffic.

“We are starting to create a new, different picture of railway transport in our country where the last train was purchased 35 years ago. We will continue with the modernization”, Transport Minister Janakieski said at the signing ceremony.

Chinese CSR Corporation Ltd is one of the world's largest manufacturers of locomotives and carriages. The company last year reported revenue of some 12 billion euro.

The company was awarded the Macedonian tender after beating Swiss train manufacturer Stadler.

This is Macedonia's second large procurement of transportation vehicles from China.

In 2010 China's Zhengzhou Yutong Group was chosen to supply the Macedonian capital Skopje with 202 retro-looking double-decker buses for its public transport system.

CSR Zhuzhou signs Macedonian multiple-unit contract
26 Jun 2014


CSR Zhuzhou is to supply four diesel and two electric multiple-units to MZ Transport


The contract was signed in Skopje on June 24

MACEDONIA: A contract for CSR Zhuzhou to supply four diesel and two electric multiple-units to national operator MZ Transport was signed in Skopje on June 24. Chinese rolling stock group CSR said the contract was its first to supply passenger rolling stock in Europe.

Deliveries are scheduled to begin in July 2015. The 140 km/h low-floor articulated units will be tailored to local requirements, including TSI compliance. They will have a capacity of around 200 passengers, including persons of reduced mobility, and will feature air-conditioning and vacuum toilets.

What the Ministry of Transport says is the first order for passenger stock for 35 years is being funded using €25m from a €50m loan which the European Bank for Reconstruction & Development has agreed to support network modernisation. This loan has also funded a €13·2m contract for ŽOS Trnava to supply 150 wagons from October, and €10m has been allocated for refurbishing existing rolling stock

Very, very impressive. ~30m by my GE measurements.

I have a question. Both new DMUs and EMUs will have 140kmh speed, right?
