Preparation of the preliminary design, pre-investment study, environmental report, environmental impact report and geodesy for construction of the second track on the MariborŠentilj section of the railway line and upgrading of the existing track


This project covers the preparatory studies for the upgrade of the existing track and construction of a second track on the Maribor-Šentilj railway line. The studies involve the environmental impact assessment, geodesy survey, and preliminary design elaboration. The outcomes will be used as a basis for the next planning and design steps before the construction works are started.


Once the section between both Slovenian cities is complete, an important bottleneck will be eliminated thanks to increased capacity of the line. This will facilitate passenger and freight traffic flows and foster further economic growth in the region.



This project has been completed.
