Abstract / Description

This thesis provides analysis of the current European Railway Policy and its effects on the organization of Hellenic Railways. The focus will be on the design of a new organizational model for the operation of the whole railway system in Hellas by identifying the strengths and weaknesses of the current Hellenic Railways organization and proposing an alternative solution taking into account the demands of the European Union (E.U.) policies and legislation. The diverse study area of the European Railway Policy allowed the examination of the policies followed by several E.U. Member-States, but necessitated a narrowing to the case of the Hellenic Railways operation to enable a meaningful analysis to be carried out.

The early part of the thesis is a diagnostic report of the Hellenic Railways before moving to the identification of the elements of change and reorganization, as determined by the E.U. policies and legislation. Appraising the information gathered from the experience of reforms pursed by the other Member-States of the E.U. and the comparative analysis of similar European Railway Networks provides a well formed, clear insight into the changes that Hellenic Railways have to achieve. Finally, a new organizational model of the Hellenic Railways will be offered, indicating the changes that have to take place and the stages that have to be followed. This model has the specific objectives of achieving a successful implementation of the reformed Hellenic Railway Network.
