Project of protection and modernization of level crossings

Within this Project, HŽ Infrastruktura will protect and modernize 94 level crossings and 1 pedestrian crossing on the lines for international, regional and local traffic in order to increase safety and consequently to reduce the number of traffic accidents and human casualties, as well as to decrease costs caused by traffic accidents.

Level crossings that are a part of this Project are recognized as places with a high level of mixed traffic, and most of them, together with the ones in other counties, are located in the counties of Bjelovar-Bilogora, Požega-Slavonia, Osijek-Baranja, Virovitica-Podravina and Varaždin.

The Project is co-financed by the European Union through the Operational Programme   “Competitiveness and Cohesion” 2014-2020 from the Cohesion Fund.
