Preparation of a Study for Zagreb Railway Node Development


The Zagreb Railway Node is located on the corridor RH2 and is also part of the section Rijeka – Zagreb – Budapest on the Mediterranean corridor.

On 2 December 2021 HŽ Infrastruktura d.o.o. signed the Grant Agreement INEA/CEF/TRAN/M2020/2450353 as part of the Instrument for Connecting Europe Transport Sector (CEF – Connecting Europe Facility) with the European Climate, Infrastructure and Environment Executive Agency (CINEA). The value of the Grant Agreement is EUR 3.0 million, of which EUR 1.5 million, or 50 percent, is co-financed from the CEF, and the remaining amount of EUR 1.5 million or 50 percent, is co-financed from the State Budget of the Republic of Croatia.

The signed Grant Agreement covers the following activities:

  1. Project management, publicity and visibility
  2. Variant Conceptual Designs for the construction of new or modernization of existing railway lines in the Node or functional Node units
  3. Feasibility Study
  4. Cost-Benefit Analysis
  5. Analysis of possible impacts of Variant Conceptual Designs on the environment
  6. Proposal for changes of the spatial planning documentation.

Preparation of the study documentation will enable identification of possible infrastructural and organizational solutions, examine their profitability in the context of the applicable regulatory framework (related to environmental protection, technological requirements, etc.) and select optimal solutions for individual parts of the Node that will be further developed into concrete individual infrastructure projects within the Zagreb Railway Node. Such solutions will enable the additional inclusion of railways in the system of public passenger transport within the framework of integrated transport, improve transit freight transport within the Zagreb Railway Node, develop Zagreb into a regional centre for freight transport, define the location/locations of intermodal terminals in the area of the Zagreb Railway Node, and will also contribute to the improvement of traffic safety and the railway system protection level.
