Following the implementation of the works railway line Vinkovci – Vukovar will be adapted for train speeds of a maximum of 120 km/h and the traveling time will be reduced. Electrification of the section will ensure economically and energetically more profitable and ecologically sustainable railway traffic. The section capacity will also increase and access to the Port of Vukovar will improve, which will contribute to the economic development of the local community and the recovery of the eastern part of Slavonia. As part of the works, parking spaces for cars and bicycles will also be arranged within the station and stops, easier access will be provided for reduced mobility persons, noise barriers will be constructed to protect against noise residents who live along the line, and the safety of all road users will increase following installation of a modern traffic signalization system and telecommunications and by building pedestrian underpasses.
As part of the Project, the following works are planned:
- complete reconstruction and renovation of the existing single-track railway line
- reconstruction of stations Vukovar-Borovo naselje and Vukovar and stops Nuštar and Bršadin – Lipovača
- works on the construction, control-command, signalling and interlocking and power sub-systems.
