Trains and the suburban rail service, which had stopped after the deadly accident in northern Greece on February 28, resume on Wednesday.

The first train is expected to depart from Larissa station at 4.45 a.m. on the Athens-Oinoi route. The new CEO of Hellenic Railways (OSE), Panagiotis Terezakis, will board the train.

As part of new safety measures, trains will run at different times during the night in order to avoid the possibility of crossing at points where there is a single track.

It has also been decided that there will be two drivers on all trains and suburban rail services, at least one attendant, and two stationmasters at stations where, until now, there was only one.
