Construction Of Europe’s Largest Rail Intermodal Terminal Starts On Hungary-Ukraine Border

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on MENAFN.

This is the introductory paragraph.

The construction of Europe’s largest railway intermodal combi terminal East-West Gate (EWG) has begun near the Hungarian-Ukrainian border.

This paragraph sums up the benefits of the new terminal.

‘Equipped with state-of-the-art technology, the EWG intermodal terminal, as the western gateway to the New Silk Road, offers a faster alternative route to Austria, Switzerland, Italy, Slovenia, Croatia and Germany for freight traffic from Asia than the current land and maritime routes, reads the article.

It is planned to be completed in 2022.
