Working out of preliminary studies for the construction of the new line of high capacity/high speed line Ljubljana-Zidani Most


Part of Priority Axis 6 (railway axis Lyon-Trieste-Divaca/Koper-Divaca-Ljubljana-Budapest-Ukrainian border), this project aims to prepare the necessary investment documentation for the spatial and project planning of the construction of the new Zidani Most-Ljubljana high capacity/high speed line (160-250 km/h). The line is planned for a length of 50-55 km, depending on the chosen variant.


When completed, this section will be integrated in the important east-west link that includes four EU Member States (Hungary, Slovenia, Italy and France). It will help to facilitate the increasing rail traffic between Europe's southeast, central and southwest regions. In addition, an important increase in rail freight capacity will be reached, contributing to modal shift in sensitive Alpine regions.


This project covers the working out of the identification document of the investment project and the working out of the feasibility study.


This project has been completed.
