The Slovenian railway line "Celje-Pragersko" is located on the Baltic-Adriatic and Mediterranean Core Network Corridors. The line currently represents a bottleneck in passenger and freight transport due to insufficient load capacity and limited interoperability.
The Action concerns construction works for upgrading of the "Poljčane-Slovenska Bistrica" double-track section with the main objective to increase the load capacity and improve the interoperability of the railway line.
The Action concerns construction works in the Poljčane station, the Poljčane–Slovenska Bistrica section and the Slovenska Bistrica station. The works cover reconstruction of substructure and superstructure, construction of platforms, grade-separated crossings, underpasses, as well as adjustments of energy, signalling-safety and telecommunication devices.
