TAIPED approves 45 mln euro Italian railways bid for Trainose
14 July 2016 14:40

The board of Greece’s state privatization fund TAIPED on Thursday approved a bid by Italy’s state-owned Ferrovie Dello Stato Italiane SpA, for the sale of Greek railway service operator Trainose.

The bid for the privatization of 100 percent of the Greek company came to 45 million euros, considerably higher than original estimates, sources said Thursday.

Meanwhile, there were no intercity train or Proastiakos suburban services on Thursday, as unions continued strike action in protest to Trainose's privatization plans.

Yeah, soon train tickets from any Italian train station to any Greek train station? With a smooth ferry-train transfer at Patras?

Kalispera,

I would like to ask you two things related to the forthcoming rail projects in Greece.

1. I recently understood there would be new rail line Thessaloniki-Amphipolis-Kavala-Xanthi. In this regard would you also connect Amphipolis with the existing line between Tholos and Dimitra? In other words linking Kavala and Serres directly. I assume such a branch will have big impact.

2. Are there any talks, considerations in Greece nowadays regarding the so called Sea2Sea rail project between the major ports on the Black and Aegean Seas with respect to the missing line from Komotini to Podkova (BG)? This line could also be very promising especially towards Kavala in terms of distance, provided we get some EU finance for it.

Zdrasti and Kalimera, I have not been following the planning process for railways in Greece, frankly because after so many decades the Patras-Athens-Saloniki line is still unfinished and operating at much less efficiency than the existing infrastructure would allow. Any new investments, especially as long as the "better starve than make debt" dogma imposed by the EU still stands, seem unlikely to see light in our lifetime. However I saw a news item on the recent visit of Tsipras with Borisov. They talked of turning the sea to sea link into a high speed link to promote tourism. But they talked of the route Alexandroupoli-Burgas, not via Podkova. It would have the advantage of in part making use of existing infrastructure: Alexandroupoli-Svilengrad is in fairly good shape, much better than today's Saloniki-Alexandroupoli, although in the long run, it would have to be rerouted, as the line zigzags along with the Maritsa/Evros river course. In Svilengrad one could connect to the soon to be completed semi-HSR Plovdiv-Svilengrad. The question is where this route could connect to the line to Burgas without backtracking too much. It could upgrade the very run down original route Simeonovgrad-Nova Zagora or ideally create a totally new line from Svilengrad straight north.
The news item, in Turkish: http://www.rayhaber.com/2016/08/cipr...li-tren-atagi/

This section of the railway passes very close to the Thermopylae pass (probably through a tunnel), doesn't it?
