Croatia will be investing in around 60 kilometers of railroads, of which 17 kilometers are entirely new, along with electrification, the building of two tracks, stations, tunnels etc. in a project, according to Vecernje List, “that local county leaders in northern Croatia are pushing for.”
The project is reportedly bigger than the construction of the Peljesac bridge.
The strategic state project for building rail connections between Cakovec-Varazdin-Lepoglava-Krapina-Zabok-Zagreb comes with a EUR400m price tag, according to B92.
The travel time from Cakovac to Zagreb will be cut from three hours to less than an hour.
The composition of a feasibility study is in progress and experts are examining solutions for connecting the Zabok-Krapina and Varazdzin-Golubovec railroads, which are the most complex sections.
A large portion of the railroad will be made up of either tunnels or viaducts.
