Port of Rijeka multimodal platform development and interconnection to Adriatic Gate container terminal (POR2CORE-AGCT) – Reconstruction of the railway station Rijeka Brajdica and container terminal Brajdica

 

BrajdicaPort of Rijeka multimodal platform development and interconnection to Adriatic Gate container terminal (POR2CORE-AGCT) is a joint project of the Port of Rijeka Authority and HŽ Infrastruktura d.o.o., for which the Grant Agreement was signed in November 2015. The Agreement was signed between the Innovation and Networks Executive Agency (INEA), based on the authorizations provided by the European Commission, the Port of Rijeka Authority (Coordinator) and HŽ Infrastruktura (Beneficiary). The project includes the reconstruction of the railway station Rijeka Brajdica and construction of Brajdica intermodal container terminal.

The total value of the project is  35.6 million, and the HŽI share amounts to 26 million. The maximum co-financing rate from the CEF amounts to 85% of the total value of the project, i.e. € 30.26 million.

The reconstruction of the railway station and the construction of a new container terminal will have a considerable impact on the existing capacity of the station and will provide technical requirements for interoperability in accordance with Directive 2008/57/EC and Technical Specifications for Interoperability (TSI) for the trans-European conventional rail network.

The contract for works on the multimodal platform development project in the Port of Rijeka and connection to Adriatic Gate container terminal (POR2CORE-AGCT) in the amount of HRK 220,751,649.34, was signed by HŽ Infrastruktura and the Port of Rijeka Authority on April 19, 2018, with the consortium KOLEKTOR KOLING d.o.o. and EURO-ASFALT d.o.o.

The reconstruction of Brajdica station includes a total of eight tracks in the railway area and the construction of four new tracks in the port area. So far, the first four tracks have been reconstructed adjacent to the station building and the remaining four tracks are being built. The overhead contact line and station lighting were reconstructed, and along the first four tracks, cable ducting was built and new turnouts were installed. A facility for interlocking and signalling and telecommunication devices was built next to the station building, as well as an auxiliary power supply facility.

In the port area, 400 m long tracks were constructed on a concrete base, lighting pillars and portals of overhead contact line support, and cable ducting is being built.

The most complicated works are those on the construction or extension of a 400 m long turnout track tunnel. In addition to the existing tracks, the tunnel has been expanded to include another track, so, alongside regular train operation, it will be possible to handle trains at the same time. The portal structure, or 70 m of excavated artificial tunnel, is connected at the entrance to the tunnel and now forms a unique structure with a turnout track. The tunnel is currently filled with concrete between the rocks and the formwork.
