TITHOREA DOMOKOS DOUBLE-TRACK High-Speed Line

RAILWAY ELECTRIFICATION

The double-Track High-Speed Railway Line Tithorea Domokos was a 106 km long line located in central Greece aiming to replace the mountainous section of the existing single-track line of 122 km.

The new alignment was designed for train speeds of 160-200 km/h and was expected to reduce travel time between Athens and Thessaloniki line down to 3.5 hours.

The project, completed in 2018, was the final phase of the global project to modernize the entire Athens–Thessaloniki axis with modern signaling, tele-commanding, telecommunication and electrification systems.
