Train travel time between Larissa and Volos to get shorter

Passengers will need just 35 minutes to travel between Larissa and Volos in central Greece from the beginning of 2016, the Hellenic Railways Organization (OSE) said on Friday after awarding the contract for the electrification of the railway connection between the cities to a private contractor.

OSE said that the travel time between Athens and Volos would also be reduced by 1.5 hours when the work is completed.
