The European Union, EBRD and partners will finance 35.5m euros to upgrade the Tirana-Durres railway and to build a new line.

In total, the Albanian government has approved a 90m-euro rail fund, while the selection phase of contractors has begun.

The funds will serve to modernise 34 km of the existing railway line between Tirana and Durres on the Adriatic coast. Furthermore, the financing will help to build a new 7.4 km rail link, which will connect both cities to Rinas International Airport

According to EU plans, they will invest about one billion euros in connectivity programs in the Western Balkans. 

The closing date for submitting applications is May 31 and the construction works must be completed in 30 months from start.
