Brussels Approves EUR 166M for Slovenian Railway Project

Brussels, 15 May (STA) - The European Commission approved EUR 166m worth of cohesion funding for an upgrade of a key railway line in Slovenia on Wednesday.

The EUR 330m project involves the reconstruction, electrification and upgrading of a section of 160 km/h on the railway line between the Pragersko junction and the Hodoš border crossing with Hungary, the modernisation of level crossings and the construction of subways at railway stations, according to a press release issued by the Commission.

"This is a good example of how our regional investments can help citizens travel more easily and more safely," the release cited Commissioner for Regional Policy Johannes Hahn, who approved the project.

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.
