SLOVENIA The EU is to invest EUR 101 mln out of its Cohesion Fund to upgrade the railtrack between Maribor and Šentilj, close to the border with Austria in the direction of Graz.

The aim of the project is to reduce travel times, increase speed times as well as ensure greater safety and freight-carrying capacity on the line. The project should increase the number of trains running between Maribor and Šentilj from 67 to 84 per day, taking into account projected increases in traffic volumes by 2039 on this section of the Baltic–Adriatic corridor of the core Trans-European Transport Network.

“Thanks to this cohesion investment, locals and tourists will enjoy faster, safer travel between Maribor and Šentilj and to the border. I hope it will convince people to leave their cars at home and adopt this greener transport option. In addition, this EU-funded project will allow for intensified freight transport, which will have positive effects on jobs, trade and growth in the country,” declared transport commissioner Violeta Bulc.

The work will also include the refurbishment of the Maribor Tezno, Maribor, Pesnica and Šentilj stations, improvements to the Šentilj tunnel and the construction of the Pekel tunnel. The new railway line should be operational by February 2023.
