Written by  Oct 24, 2016

Last week the Croatian Railways Infrastructure company announced that the European Commission had granted 241 million Euros for the reconstruction of the existing track and construction of a second one on the railway line from Krizevci via Koprivnica to the state border with Hungary.

Earlier this summer after the European Commission had made a preliminary decision about co-financing the project; the Croatian Railways Infrastructure signed an agreement with the EU Commission’s agency INEA that secured co-funding of this megaproject from the Connecting Europe Facility with 85 percent or a little more than 241 million Euros.

This way the Croatian Railways Infrastructure will continue with the modernization of the so-called Mediterranean Corridor at the section between Zagreb and the Hungarian border. In July this year the company started with works worth almost 200 million Euros on the reconstruction of the existing track and on the construction of the second one of the railway line between Dugo Selo near Zagreb and Krizevci.

According to a statement by the Croatian Railways Infrastructure this project will increase the line capacity, enable speeds of up to 160 kilometres per hour, shorten travel times, allow usage of interoperable trains and increase the level of safety.
