First hand info:
Koper -Divača railway will have single track without reservation for a second track. If ever needed, it will be built separately with new tunnels and viaducts.

There are 8 tunnels planned:
T1 - 6700 m
T2 - 6000 m
T8 - 3760 m
and all have service tube. Other five tunnels are shorter without service tube.

Tunnels T1 and T2 will be merged with covered track and effectively they will make one tunnel of almost 13 km length. They both lead also through very cavernous karst terrain and in some places they will be built waterproof for water depths over 100 meters.

There are two viaducts, V1 (450 m long) will run under existing A1 motorway viaduct Črni Kal about in half height, other V2 (650 m long) will run just about 150 m from Italian border and will therefore have anti-noise barriers exclusively for communities in Italy.

Old railway stays in place and will be used for empty freight trains and local passenger trains. It is currently under modernization program, main freight station at port Koper is now under reconstruction and expansion and Divača station should begin expansion this year after all land expropriation problems will be resolved.

New track will be used for fast passenger trains and loaded freight trains in both directions. There will be even overtaking track inside the T2 tunnel. Also slabtrack will be used from first to last tunnel. Design speeds range until 160 km/h, with trains with tilting technology even more. From Divača to Koper there is about 430 m of height difference, so most of the track will use maximum allowed gradient of 1,7 %.

Current status:
First part to start construction is lower part from Črni Kal to Koper and project for construction permit was already made. Upper part to Divača is still in designing phase (for construction permit) and should be finished in few months. Construction permits are still not given (blame slow and inefficient state services) and also needed land is still not bought. Construction should start this year and should take at least 5 years, but with current uncertain status of construction in Slovenia with almost all major companies going bankrupt or close to and government close to resign it is very unlikely that anything important will happen this year.
I haven't heard any news of that proejct, so I suppose it has been abandoned...???

I completely agree with you, and I share your opinion. The same problems with the primitive people we have in Zagreb, in such a horrible way, destroying trains.
