The Albanian Government together with the EU Investment Fund will start work at the end of this year for the construction of the Tirana-Durrės-Rinas railway line.
According to Deputy Minister of Infrastructure and Energy, Artan Shkreli, the investment will reach EUR 35.4 million and will be completed by 2020, while the ticket price will be EURO 1-1.2, because the train will not be electric but will work with diesel.
"By the next year, that is 24 months, it is completely feasible because it is about rehabilitation. We think that we will achieve this date, but the only thing that may be questioned will be the new trait that will go up to Rinas," said Shkreli.
Authorities predict that the flow of passages through this 34 kilometer long line will reach 500,000 people per month.
