The budget for 2021 for rail transportation will be one of the priorities of the economic budget for 2021. It has been increased by 1.2 billion ALL compared to 2020. According to the Minister of Finance and Economy, Anila Denaj, “Support for rail transport doubles compared to the year we are leaving behind, to give life to two major projects, the reconstruction of the Tirane-Durrës segment and the construction of the new Tirane-Rinas line ”.
It is foreseen that in addition to the construction of a new line to the International Airport "Mother Teresa", the existing line Tirane - Durres will be modernized, once one of the most frequented in passenger transport in the area Tirane - Durres.
The Tirana-Durrës railway rehabilitation project and the construction of a new extension in Rinas is part of the Connectivity Agenda, which aims to connect the region and beyond with Europe. Under the Berlin Initiative, eligible projects can attract grants and donor funding. /rti.rtsh.al
