Ukrzaliznytsya from Kiev to Odessa will launch Talgo cars08 November 2018 07:26
To increase the speed of the Intercity + train on the Kiev-Odessa line, Ukrzaliznytsia is considering using Talgo wagons. Thanks to Talgo wagons, you can shorten the journey from Kiev to Odessa to 5.5 hours.
Analyzing ways to increase the speed of the Intercity + train with the Kiev-Odessa message without building a parallel new track, the possibility of acquiring Talgo cars is being considered, which have proven themselves in other countries and can increase the speed of the existing infrastructure by 20-25%. This implementation will reduce the travel time of Intercity + Kiev - Odessa to about 5.5 hours.
