Transport infrastructure works at Central and Eastern Macedonia and Thrace

  Another major development work was published at the Region of Central Macedonia’s website.

 The open tender concerns the railway connection of Thessaloniki’s port with the rest rail network. The project involves the improvement of Thessaloniki – Idomeni rail section. According to the project the superstructure of the existing rail corridor is scheduled to be renovated. New sleepers, modern rail crossings and great amount of gravel are going to be installed. In addition to the superstructure, the network infrastructure is also going to be sanitized by placing adequate loan materials throughout the length of the main track. Also, the existing orbit switches will be replaced, small scale projects will be rebuilt and drain channels are going to be constructed. Depending on the situation, rail slopes are either going to be drilled or cleaned. Last but not least, existing level crossings will be renovated.
















  On the other hand, at Eastern Macedonia and Thrace there is a great problem in the connection of Egnatia motorway with the side regions via vertical road axes.

 Competent bodies of Eastern Macedonia and Thrace have already launched the implementation of interventions and vertical axes complement at Egnatia motorway. More specifically, the projects “Egnatia’s motorway vertical axis Ardanio – Ormenio, section Ardanio – Mandra” as well as the construction of section “Dimario diversion” at the vertical axis “Xanthi – Echinos – Greek-Bulgarian borders” have been invited to tender.
