Direct EU to Lviv Railway Planned

Ukrainian president Petro Poroshenko is reported to be launching an initiative to build a narrow gauge railway line directly to Lviv from neighboring EU countries.  By building an EU standard railway to Lviv the travel time for tourists will be dramatically decreased as well as improving Lviv’s attractiveness as a transport hub for goods.

This news comes on the heels of the announcement of a $1billion contract with General Electric to provide trains to the Ukrainian Railway system.   More details on the deal can be found here on GE’s website.
