The modernisation of the signalling and telemanagement systems, as well as the installation of the European Train Control System (ETCS) on the SKA-Promachonas railway line, the main railway axis of the country, is proceeding methodically in spite of the chronic problems and great difficulties, Infrastructure and Transport Minister Christos Staikouras said on Wednesday.

Following the delivery of signalling and telemanagement systems for large parts of the line on Tuesday, Staikouras said the last section of the system from Oinoi to Tithorea was due in September, at which point there will be full remote management of the entire line from Athens to Thessaloniki, completing the relevant contract.

As for the ETCS, the minister reported rapid progress and said that this was expected to operate along the entire length of the line from SKA to Thessaloniki by the end of November, earlier than initially estimated.

“In collaboration with the management of OSE and ERGOSE, with a plan and political will, we are tackling the chronic weaknesses and pending issues, increasing the safety of passengers and creating the conditions for better, higher-quality and modern rail infrastructure and services,” Staikouras said.
