Piraeus Major Loading Dock to Open in Sept

The construction of the car terminal loading dock at the Neo Ikonio area of the main Greek port of Piraeus has been completed and the facility will open in September, the Athens News Agency reported.
The project is part of an agreement between OSE (Hellenic Railways) and OLP to construct a 17-km rail line linking the Thriassio Valley area with the facilities of Chinese-owned container company Cosco in Neo Ikonio, and feed into the national railway network as well, the news agency said.
The railroad, which was completed in February, will begin operation once the dock is inaugurated. It will be used to convey goods and cars among OLP, the Cosco terminal in Piraeus, and Thriassio, cutting down significantly on overland travel.
In 2012 the port of Piraeus handled close to half a million cars going to markets in the Mediterranean, including 54,785 imported in Greece.
