Description

The railway network presents a special communication function, which keeps humanity closer. The first developments of the railway network in Kosovo date back to 1874 when the first train entered this area from Thessaloniki through Skopje. This paper aims to provide some data generated during the years 2020-2021 regarding the railway network in Kosovo and its connecting facilities. Construction of railway lines, stations, tunnels, bridges, watersheds, protective walls, canals for surface water drainage has an average lifespan of 92 years. The total length of the railway network is 336.68 km, in which are built 23 tunnels with a total length of 9789.5 m. 26.1% of them are of medium depth, while 73.9% are of shallow depth from the ground surface. 66.07% of the railway lines are active, while 33.42% are non-functional.
