EconomyInvestment & Real Estate

Slovenia will receive almost EUR 91 million from the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) to modernise its railway infrastructure. Almost EUR 57 million will be spend to upgrade the Jesenice railway station, and over EUR 34 million for modernising several railway stations between Ljubljana and Maribor.

The grant agreement was signed by representatives of the European Climate, Environment and Infrastructure Executive Agency (CINEA) and the Infrastructure Ministry on Wednesday, the ministry has said.

The project upgrading the railway infrastructure in Jesenice will receive EUR 56.6 million, while EUR 34.1 million will go smaller projects at the train stations in Litija, Zagorje, Trbovlje, Laze pri Dolskem, Šentjur, Ponikva and Rače.

In both projects works will include the construction of crossings and underpasses, platforms, the upper and lower structure of the railway, upgrading the electricity system and the overhead power lines, and other works to put the infrastructure in line with the standards on the TEN-T trans-European transport network.

The value of the Jesnice project is estimated at EUR 89 million and works should be conducted between 1 November and the end of October 2025.

Works on the other seven railway stations have been under way since 1 September 2021 and should be completed at the end of August 2026.
