Brussels approves €166 mln for Slovenian railway project
The European Commission approved €166 million worth of cohesion funding for an upgrade of a key railway line in Slovenia on Wednesday. The €330 million project involves the reconstruction, electrification and upgrading of a section of 160 km/h on the railway line between the Pragersko junction and the Hodos border crossing with Hungary, the modernization of level crossings and the construction of subways at railway stations, according to a press release issued by the Commission. The investment will improve the quality and competitiveness of cargo, increase the traffic speed and bring more travel security on the line that is part of the trans-European transport (TEN-T) network and is one of the priority TEN-T railway corridors between the EU and other European countries.
