National Transport Plan for Greece
The National Transport Plan for Greece – NTPG is a consultancy project awarded under the Framework agreement to support European Investment Bank’s Advisory Services (EIBAS) activities inside and outside EU-28. The primary objective of the Project is to provide the basis for sustainable transport infrastructure and service development in Greece over the medium to long term, which will contribute to the competitiveness of the transport sector of the country.
The National Transport Plan for Greece is a key policy document which will define the transport sector development strategy for the next 20 years and will support Greece’s economic development. It will also determine the main actions that may receive financial support from International Financing Institutions and donors, especially EU and EIB. Thus, it requires a well-defined and justified Strategy, which will be endorsed by all stakeholders.
The project started on the 15th of May 2017 and has a total duration of 22 months.
Journey Time surveys, having a total length of about 3,500 kms, have been implemented on the week 12-16 June 2017. The field surveys will be completed after the 15th of September 2017, in order to collect representative traffic data that will reflect the typical period.
The Kick off meeting took place on the 19th of May 2017, at the premises of the Ministry of Infrastructures and Transport, under the Secretary General of the Ministry with the participation of representatives of all involved parties. The participants highlighted the significance and the necessity of the project and expressed their will to co-operate and support the implementation of the project, throughout its duration.
