North-South express railway under rennovation

The North-South Express Railway will be under renovation until 2020. It is expected to reach capacity of 90 kilometers per hour for passenger trains, and handle 15-16 million passengers a year, according to the Ministry of Transport on March 20.

Freight trains are expected to travel 50-60 kilometers per hour and carry 5-6 million tons of freight ever year.

The upgrade will connect railways to sea ports, industrial zones and tourist areas throughout the country.
