Underpasses in Menemeni Municipality, Thessaloniki

Projects / MACEDONIA - THRACE /   31.07.2017

The project involves the elimination of the existing level crossing for vehicles and pedestrians at Ch. 0+902,10 of the Thessaloniki – Florina railway line; it also aims to restore the interruption in the continuity of the urban fabric, caused by the presence of railway lines in the greater area of Menemeni Municipality.

 

The project enables the elimination of the existing level crossing in Ag. Paraskevis str., resulting in better road traffic conditions in the area and the safer movement of pedestrians and vehicles. The existing level crossing is the only connection of the areas on either side of the railway, from Thessaloniki Passenger Railway Station (Agion Pandon str.) until Agamemnon str. (west of Dendropotamos, in Evosmos Municipality).
