More funds for key transport links in Albania
The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD), the EU and its partners are stepping up their support for strategic transport links in Albania. Up to EUR 35.5 million is being granted for the modernisation of more than 34 km of the existing railway line between Tirana and Durres on the Adriatic coast.
Durres is the country’s largest port and an important regional hub for international trade. Furthermore, the grant will help to construct a new 7.4 km long rail link, which will connect both cities to Rinas international airport. To date, the EBRD has invested almost EUR 1 billion in around 80 projects in Albania. (ben)
