Plans to modernise and electrify the 24·2 km Zaprešić - Zabok line northwest of Zagreb have been backed by the JASPERS technical assistance partnership, which is managed by the European Investment Bank and co-sponsored by the European Commission and European Bank for Reconstruction & Development.
The Ministry of Maritime Affairs, Transport & Infrastructure received formal notification of the decision on February 17. EU co-financing has been set at €80·8m, and completion is envisaged for 2019.
Several sections of new alignment are planed, including two short tunnels and several bridges. All level crossings will be eliminated, and the stations renovated, with Zabok station to be rebuilt and brought within the Zagreb suburban network.
The project will shorten the Zagreb – Zabok journey time from 58 to 39 min for stopping services and from 47 to 24 min for non-stop services
