EU co-funded study to improve rail traffic in Slovenia

Creation date: May 12, 2011

The EU has awarded €1.1 million financing to a study which aims at finalising the design to upgrade a 14 km section of a double track railway line in Slovenia. It will contribute to the completion of Priority Project 6, the “Lyon-Trieste-Divača/Koper-Divača-Ljubljana-Budapest-Ukrainian border axis”.

 

The “Elaboration of the executive design for upgrading of the section of the railway line Poljčane-Pragersko” study, which was submitted under the 2010 TEN-T Annual Call for Proposals published on 19 May 2010, will be co-financed by the EU at a rate of 50%, or €1.1 million.

 

The study will identify structural solutions to upgrade a 14 km section of a double track rail line between the Slovenian cities of Poljčane and Pragersko, which, when implemented, will lead to faster and safer rail connections along this stretch of Priority Project 6, the “Lyon-Trieste-Divača/Koper-Divača-Ljubljana-Budapest-Ukrainian border axis”.

 

This will ensure a more competitive rail sector and faster connections for both passengers and freight.
