Sub­si­dized routes re­main an ob­sta­cle to Train­ose trans­ac­tion

Kathimerini English - - Focus -

Rome are wait­ing for the set­tle­ment of the is­sue of Train­ose’s state sup­port be­fore it is trans­ferred to Fer­rovie dello Stato Ital­iane, but the is­sue of the sub­si­dized routes also re­mains un­re­solved – at least that was the case up un­til yes­ter­day – threat­en­ing the sign­ing of the con­tract with the Ital­ians with new de­lays. Sources say the ex­ist­ing min­is­te­rial de­ci­sion on the state sub­sidy for un­pop­u­lar rail routes does not se­cure Train­ose or its in­vestor ei­ther the pay­ment or the amount of the sub­si­dies. The in­vestor wishes to se­cure a 50-mil­lioneuro sub­sidy per an­num for the next five years.
