There was an initiative of a private company to comprehensively modernise the Bratislava Central Station and adjacent square, but this project failed.

Recently the city has slightly refurbished the square with public transport facilities and ŽSR (railway infrastructure administrator) revealed plans for modest reconstruction (more like face-lift) of current station building just couple of days ago.

In the present there are discussions about completely new central station on different location. There are now no real plans for substantial reconstruction of the Central Station.

Long-distance operating contract tender cancelled
28 Feb 2017





SLOVAKIA: The Ministry of Transport & Construction has formally cancelled the tendering of a €10m contract to operate subsidised long-distance passenger services between Bratislava and Banská Bystrica via Šurany and Levice.

As a result, all passenger services on the 230 km route will continue to be operated by state-owned ZSSK for the immediate future. Meanwhile, the ministry plans to reassess its requirements before launching a new tender

Almost forgot to post it here. Last week there was an opening ceremony of the new bridge on Bratislava - Košice line in Trenčín. The first train to use the bridge was IC 520 Košice - Bratislava. The bridge was build about 100 meters from the old one to stretch curves and allow higher speed.

Slovak national railway operator ZSSK has leased 10 Siemens Vectron locomotives for 10 years. The leasing contract is worth 58.7 million €. The locomotives will haul all IC trains on the main line Bratislava - Košice and likely also some fast trains on the same line.

The first Siemens Vectron locomotives have already arrived to Slovakia. They are undergoing test rides and they will soon get the corporate livery.

Since yesterday (10th December) entered into service three new Vectron locomotives of total 10 leased. These will run on IC and R trains between Bratislava and Košice and EC trains between Budapest and Prague.
Vectrons aren´t painted in unified red and white colors, but in special livery "National carrier" (old version of intended livery is here).

Also, as new timetable is valid from yesterday, new line S8 is operating between Bratislava/Petržalka and hungarian Hegyeshalom 5 times a day in each direction (one train runs only to Rajka). Section Bratislava/Petržalka - Bratislava/Rusovce is integrated into IDS BK (Integrated transport system in Bratislava region). Line is operated by GySEV/ZSSK with GySEV rolling stock.

This article is terribly wrong because 80 m long 2 car train would have to have 40 m long cars while 106 m three car would feature 35 m cars which is physically impossible! Most probably 80 m will be 3 car and 106 m will feature 4 cars.

Rail carriages of type Bmeer (built original as Bmee in 1986/7 and modernized in 2006/7) are actually undergoing in company ŽOS Trnava modernization to type Bmz. Totally will be modernized up to 50 carriages until 2022.

Starting from December 2018 there should be direct connection Bratislava - Zurich with OBB railjet trainsets. I say finally. Now I only hope one day there will be this kind of connection via the northern railway (Marchegg), which would be a lot faster.

It's nice to see the passenger connection between Bratislava center and Petržalka soon functioning again. Having said this, I just wonder why there are no stops between BA- Nove Mesto and Petržalka. While on the Northern side of Danube there are just some scarcely populated areas, I'd suggest a stop on the intersection with Jantarova street (tramway, apartment blocks, health services, shops...). Shouldn't such an idea be implemented? And maybe another one somewhere close to Trnavska street to connect with the bus line 61 to the airport?

Between Petržalka and Nové mesto, in Ružinov on the left side of Danube is located station BA-ÚNS (Ústredná nákladná stanica). Unfortunately this won't be served, as underpass to platform is disrepair (no matter that in the past people were regardless crossing over tracks).


There is a plan to build 7 new stops (TIOPs) inside the city (initiated by ŽSR and city hall):





The fact, that stop on Jantárová st wasn't built along with construction of tram line is just incompetence of some authorities/concrete persons. Also, ZSSK suggested to build a new stop somewhere near Einsteinova st, close to Aupark and Digital park and idea of stop with interchange to tram is supported by developer HB Reavis too.


Another location for potential stop in Petržalka, which would be needed soon, but realization is unreal in near (and probably also in distant) future,

is in Janíkov dvor (where is actually u/c 2nd biggest development in the country), close next to loop of future tram line:






Exactly absence of stops and infrequency of trains (which often aren't in the same time position) are the reason, why it's unable to consider railway as a normal type of transport for journeys in the city.

ZSSK announced tender for new vehicles for High Tatras. These will be all bimodal, what will allow them to run on all Tatra electric railway network (but primary will operate on Tatranská Štrba - Štrbské Pleso rack railway).
Demanded are 1 multifunctional locomotive and 5 low-floor EMUs with length 32 - 36 m, capacity at least 160 pax and equipped by air condition, WiFi, informational systems etc. Deliveries are due between 2 - 3 years after signing of contract (with Stadler, of course).

ZSSK has today presented new design of its passenger cars. That is inspired by traditional ornamental pattern from Čičmany village, High Tatra's sunsets and river Danube.


In first phase will be supplied in this design 35 new open coaches of types Ampz and Bmpz (produced by ŽOS Vrútky), another 50 compertment coaches of current type Bmeer will be modernized to type Bmz (see #149).
