Preparation of a Study for Zagreb Railway Node Development
The Zagreb Railway Node is located on the RH2 corridor and is also a part of the section Rijeka – Zagreb – Budapest of the Mediterranean Corridor.
On December 2, 2021, HŽ Infrastruktura d.o.o. signed the Grant Agreement No. INEA/CEF/TRAN/M2020/2450353 with the European Executive Agency for Climate, Infrastructure and the Environment (CINEA) within the scope of the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF).
Under this Agreement an amount of EUR 1.50 million has been approved, which amounts to 50 percent of the approved amount of co-financing. The estimated amount of implementation of the activities from the Agreement amounts to EUR 3.00 million. The remaining 50 percent of the amount (EUR 1.50 million) will be financed from the State Budget of the Republic of Croatia.
The following activities will be carried out within the signed Agreement:
- Project management, publicity and visibility measures
- Variant conceptual designs
- Feasibility Study
- Cost and Benefit Analysis for selected variant conceptual designs
- Analysis of the potential environmental effects of the variant conceptual designs
- Proposals for amendments in spatial planning documentation.
The aim of preparation of this documentation is to identify possible infrastructure and organizational solutions, to examine their cost-effectiveness in the context of the applicable regulatory framework (related to environmental protection, technological requirements, etc.) and to select optimal solutions for individual parts of the node that will be further developed into specific infrastructure projects in the area of the Zagreb railway node. Such solutions will enable additional inclusion of the railways into the public passenger transport system within the integrated transport, improve transit freight transport in the Zagreb railway node, development of Zagreb into a regional freight transport centre, definition of the location(s) of intermodal terminals in the area of the Zagreb railway node and will also contribute to improving transport safety and the level of safety of the railway system.
The main goal of the preparation of mentioned documentation is to develop efficient and competitive rail transport along the Mediterranean Corridor, together with removing bottlenecks in the Croatian part of the Corridor, increase of the capacities and safety, enhancing the quality of rail services for passenger and freight transport, shortening traveling times and improving rail competitiveness.
