Divaca-Koper railway to be completed in 2025
Project manager 2TDK can now go ahead with the building of the new railway track between Divaca and Koper in Slovenia, after having signed a contract with the contractors chosen for the main construction works. With this signing, which took place just outside Koper, the work on the rail route itself can officially begin.
According to the timetable, the construction must be completed in 2025, and the track is expected to be handed over for use a year later.
The entire 27 km Divaca-Koper railway section will allow speeds of up to 160 km per hour, comparable to the speeds of modern European railways. The railway will rise from sea level to 430 m in Divača, and three quarters of the railway route will run in tunnels. (ben)
