On March 6, 2023, HŽ Infrastruktura signed Service contract for supervision of works for 68 level-crossings and 1 pedestrian crossing with a consortium consisting of MOBILITA EVOLVA d.o.o. and MOBILITA VISION d.o.o. in the amount of EUR 0.3 million.
The goals of the Project are to reduce the dangers arising from the intersection of two separate transport systems (railway lines and roads), increase the safety level at level-crossings, reduce the number of traffic accidents and by the same token reduce the number of the casualties as well as the costs caused by traffic accidents.
With the implementation of the works, all crossings will be equipped with automatic electronic signalling and safety devices that for the safe flow of traffic use light signals in LED technology and loud bells, while at 79 level-crossings, in addition to the mentioned devices, half- barriers will be installed.
