EU cohesion policy invests in a modern rail network in Croatia and links Eastern and Southern Europe with 145 million Euros from the Cohesion Fund.

Text:

The aim of this investment is to improve the rail connection between the towns of Križevci in the center of the country and Dugo Selo near Zagreb. The section is part of the Mediterranean corridor of the Trans-European Transport Network (TEN-T), which connects Croatia with its Hungarian and Slovenian neighbors, and connects southern Europe to the east, from Spain to the Ukrainian border.

This project includes the renovation and doubling of the roads between the two cities, works at railway stations, modernization of the telecommunications and signaling system, and the construction of adjacent road infrastructures (bridge, tunnels, roads) to guarantee better access to the rail network.
