Congratulations to SWS team that has been awarded the contract for the study on the development of an investment plan for a new railway link from Pogradec, Albania to the Greek border/Krystallopigi.
SWS will deal with the preparation and development of the strategic investment plan for connecting Greece and Albania via a new railway link from Krystallopigi (Greece) to Pogradec (Albania) of a total length of approximately 130 km.
It is an important line that will allow trade between different countries since the track will be part of the Corridor VIII which includes the Port of Durres, a significant commercial exchange node being the largest seaport of Albania. At the same time, the rail link will also establish a strategic connection with TEN-T Mediterranean Corridor in Italy (Port of Bari) directly from Greece territory.
Furthermore, another goal is to promote and enhance local capacity for the implementation of investment programmes on the SEETO (South East Europe Transport Observatory) Comprehensive Network.
