Athens-Thessaloniki Train Route to Restart Tuesday

The service was disrupted to allow for a section to be upgraded, with full electrification of the route planned for the end of February.

The Athens-Thessaloniki rail service is to return to operation on Tuesday, following the completion of works to upgrade the network.

According to the state-owned company responsible for railway infrastructure, Ergose, the section of the route between Lianokladi and Domokos will be served by diesel-powered trains until the end of February, when the full electrification of the route is to be completed.

The aim is to offer passengers a four-hour connection between the country’s two largest cities.
