The contract was signed in the meantime and works will begin soon

DUGO SELO - KRIŽEVCI LINE

Works to Begin on the Largest Railway Infrastructure Project on Dugo Selo – Križevci

ZAGREB, April 8-HŽ Infrastruktura will soon begin the works on the Dugo Selo – Križevci Railway Section Upgrade and Construction of Second Track. This is the largest railway infrastructure project with an estimated value of 200 million €, with 85 per cent co-financing obtained from EU funds.

After the State Commission for Supervision of Public Procurement Procedure issued a complete rejection of the bidder’s appeal regarding the selection of the works’ contractor on April 8, 2016, conditions were met for a works’ contract to be signed between HŽ Infrastruktura with the chosen consortium, made up of the following Croatian companies: DIV d.o.o., DALEKOVOD d.d., and ZAGREB-MONTAŽA d.o.o. Works are to begin during the summer of 2016, and the project is to be completed by the end of 2019.
Contract value is 163,1 million €.

„This is a big step for HŽ Infrastruktura, as well as for the entire Croatian economy. We are proud that this has made HŽ Infrastruktura into the body responsible for the largest project in the Republic of Croatia so far, which is co-financed by EU funds. This is a big day for our company, and I would like to thank everyone who has worked on this project. We are finally beginning with the works and we are extremely pleased because of it. This is a strategic project, with the help of which HŽ Infrastruktura will surely contribute to GDP increase, revitalization of the civil engineering sector and the improvement of the railway traffic quality in Croatia. Additionally, we are happy about the fact that the project was also recognized by the European Union, which provides 85 per cent co-financing of the works and project supervision. This regards the section, which is a part of the Mediterranean Corridor, one of the two European transport corridors, which pass through Croatia and are a part of the European transport network. We are focused on priority investments, which are potentially the largest generator of growth and revenue.

The most reasonably priced offer was chosen and I believe that Croatian companies, which were chosen as contractors, together with the team of HŽ Infrastruktura, led by project manager Tihomir Lažeta, will do a great job.'', said the President of HŽ Infrastruktura Management Board, Renata Suša.



FURTHER PROJECT DETAILS:

• Planned activities within the project include, besides the railway section upgrade and construction of second track on the entire 38.2km long line section, the construction of 6 bridges, of which two road bridges and the reconstruction of seven existing bridges, cancellation of 17 level crossings and two passenger crossings and the construction of 11 new overpasses, one underpass and six subways, upgrade of electric traction fixed installations, modernization of signalling and interlocking, as well as telecommunication devices and the construction of 25 kilometres of service roads. Upon project completion, Dugo Selo to Križevci journey time from will be reduced from 30 to 18 minutes.

• The project “Dugo Selo – Križevci Railway Section Upgrade and Construction of Second Track“ has been recognized as one of the priorities of railway network modernization in the Republic of Croatia, and it is a part of a big project of setting up a high efficiency double-track railway line for mixed transport along the entire Mediterranean corridor RH2, which connects the Iberian Peninsula via the Port of Rijeka, Zagreb and Budapest with the Hungarian-Ukrainian border and TEN-T European network. Upon Croatia’s EU accession, the Port of Rijeka has become a point of entry/exit for the single European market, therefore, an increase of traffic volumes towards central European countries is expected, and this is the first project which connects Rijeka and Zagreb to the Hungarian rail network.

• The purpose of this project is the construction of a double-track line, with much more favourable characteristics for use, which will meet the requirements of corridor traffic and receipt of interoperable freight trains, enable the increase of line capacity and the quality of life for people living next to railway lines, with significant investment in noise protection, according to European standards.

Since liberalisation of freight market in 2013, private/foreign freight operators in Croatia are increasing presence:



And some passenger trains:

There was a break in the service the previous year till spring due to the migration crisis, but for almost a year, it's already back.

Frequency - twice a day (at least it was so in the previous year timetable). One in the morning, one in the afternoon.
Travel time - half a day, basically. Check the timetable.
Train type - there were Croatian and Hungarian wagons. With compartments, 6 seats per compartment in the 2nd class. The Croatian ones looked more modern, there was a single power outlet in each compartment. In the Hungarian one, a person I traveled with claimed that he could fell mold somewhere in there. If I remember well, the Hungarian wagons had no power outlets in compartments, but they had WiFi "instead", which was not present in the Croatian ones.
Service - one of the trains per day had a diner wagon (operated by Hungarian railways), one did not. The toilets in the Croatian wagon did not work, but those in the Hungarian one did, so it was not a problem. Both types of wagons were air-conditioned, if I am not mistaken.
Number of passengers - the train was far from full. Two or three persons in a compartment, there were also empty ones, if I remember well.

Travel time - about 6 hours.

During winter there are 2 connections, during summer there is also ADRIA (2 times per week).

New RCA freight train Rijeka - Munich - Ludwigshafen will be introduced in late March...

http://www.railwaypro.com/wp/rail-ca...oatia-germany/

Quote:
From this year, the Rail Cargo Group offers a return service from Rijeka to Ludwigshafen via Munich for their customer DP World. This is a completely new rail service and the first direct connection between Croatia and Germany.
Transport on the new route between Rijeka Adriatic Gate and Ludwigshafen KTL started in February with three round trips per week. This is part of the container transport between European economic centres that Rail Cargo Operator handles for its customer DP World. The train consist comprises fourteen 90-foot container wagons and four 80-foot container wagons.
With this move, Rail Cargo Operator is cementing its position as a major player in the international logistics industry and significantly furthering its aim of increasing the prominence of rail as a mode of transport.

So basically you have to run up and down the train.

There seems to be an issue connecting the new Rail line to the Network near Gradec.
The first Article mentions it might be because it was never intended to be connected in the first place,
however the railway company claims that "At this moment, all works haven't been finished yet, nor have the technical preconditions for safe railway traffic been met".

On the main line there are currently works on adding a second track. Building a connection and converting Gradec from stop to a station is part of that contract (that was delayed 1-2 years because of prolonged bidding process), so obviously the new local line will have to wait for that.

But locals are making a fuss because they'll now have to switch trains for the next 2 years or so. They think connecting a new line is just as easy as installing a new switch. But the whole signalling system on the main line would have to be upgraded, a system that is out-of-date and will be replaced in a year or two. And all of that for only two direct trains per day.
