Tirana to Durres by train, tickets will cost 1-1.2 euros
From 1 to 1.2 euros. This is the price which is expected to be paid by Albanian travelers for a train journey from Tirana to Durres through the new railway line which will connect these two key cities. This project is expected to be finalized within 2020. This was declared yesterday by the deputy minister of Infrastructure, Artan Shkreli during a discussion with MPs on the project for the construction of this new railway line.

“The ticket’s price may vary from 1 to 1.2 euros. There may be public operators or private operators, but there’s also a possibility to alternate operators”, Shkreli said. Meanwhile, as far as the completion of works is concerned, he said that based on the agreement, the project is expected to be finalized by 31 December 2020. In other words, within a period of three years, travelers will be able to make their way to Durres through the new railway line. According to Shkreli, this deadline may only be exceeded for the railway line to Rinas. “We believe that we will be able to meet the deadline, because in this case, we will only be conducting a rehabilitation of the existing line”, Shkreli explained. Meanwhile, he also gave details on the project, including the new diesel locomotive, while the electric locomotive requires an extra fund of 10 to 12 million euros.
