Salfo and Associates was responsible for updating the Cost Benefit Study of the new high-speed double railway line between Tithorea – Lianokladi and the upgrading of the rail corridor Athens – Thessaloniki to high travel speeds (up to 200Km/h). The study examined:
The first project entails the construction of a double railway line, of approximately 54 km, between the Railway Stations of Tithorea and Lianokladi; its alignment will allow 200 km/hr speeds. The project was expected to be completed in 2008.
The second project entails the upgrading of the main Athens-Thessaloniki railway axis to allow high-speed travel. The project included line infrastructure upgrading, minor realignment and safety measures at specific points and railway station extension/upgrading. The works included improvements of the rail sections: Oeni-Aharnes Transportation Centre; Oeni-Tithorea; Domokos-Larissa; Larissa-Plati-Thessaloniki, Tithorea-Domokos and complementary design studies.
