The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development will assist
the Albanian government with a project to revitalize the domestic
rail network. The rehabilitation of the Durres-Tirana railway line
will have the priority in this project as 40% of Albania's
population is concentrated in this area. The start date of the
project is September 2012 and its duration will be nine months,
while its cost is estimated at around Euro 1,2 million.
