    "It seems there are a fairly small number of complaints and now, according to the specified procedure, the complaint committee should decide as quickly as possible in order to send invitations and announce the final list of participants in the tender," he added.

    He also said the committee decision is expected before August 15 and the auction will be held within the same month.

    [03] Investment for Thriasio rail freight terminal will create thousands of jobs, says minister

    Greece received a single bid to build and run a new rail freight terminal in Thriasio, near Athens, which will create thousands of jobs and turn Greece into an international hub, Infrastructure, Transport and Networks Minister Christos Spirtzis said on Tuesday, following the expiration of the tender deadline.

    The bid was submitted by ETVA, a subsidiary of Piraeus Bank which develops and manages industrial parks, and Goldair, a Greek cargo and logistics services company.

    "After 12 years of inactivity, problems and delays, but also two unsuccessful tenders in 2006 and 2009, the creation of the freight center in Thriasio is a reality," the minister said.

    Spirtzis also said the investment, worth more than 250 million euros, will create some 3,000 jobs over 10 years, improve services, cut transport and product cost and boost competitiveness and economic development.
