The procurement of six new trains, rehabilitation and construction of new railroads, as well as reconstruction of the railway stations will result in complete overhaul of the railway sector, said Minister of Transport and Communications Vlado Misajlovski on Thursday.

The second train manufactured in China, set to operate en route Skopje-Bitola, arrived in Macedonia yesterday, while six others are scheduled by the end of April.

“Taking into consideration the manufacturing dynamics, the trains will arrive in Macedonia by the end of April. Besides the trains, we are working on the rehabilitation of railway stations along Corridor 10, while the reconstruction of the Skopje Railway Station is in the final stages. The Government is also investing in the construction of new railroads and all efforts should result in complete overhaul of the railway sector”, stressed Misajlovski.
