3. Priority axes
Priority 1: "Upgrading Croatia's rail transport system" aims to gradually develop and upgrade Croatia’s TEN-T rail transport network in order to connect the country more comprehensively and efficiently with the European transport networks whilst at the same time harmonising technical and operability standards with those of the European Union. The regional and suburban railway network will be upgraded and the standard of Croatian railways improved, in particular the line along TEN Corridor X within Croatia, also harmonised with EU standards.
Priority 2: "Upgrading Croatia's inland waterway system" aims to rehabilitate the Sava river waterway to category IV navigational status, including its alignment with the EU River Information System. The qualitative and technological modernization of Croatian river ports will help to satisfy the existing and expected transport demand. Ports will be connected with main road and rail corridors in order to achieve better integration with the economic hinterland and to create preconditions for the development of inter-modal transport.
Priority 3: "Technical Assistance" will contribute to a sound and efficient management and implementation of the programme, by improving the administrative capacity of the institutions concerned in all the relevant areas. It is also used to prepare projects for subsequent programmes.
