Koper improves port's rail connection
The new 2.8 km railway access route for the car, truck and ro-ro terminal in Luka Koper, Slovenia is now in operation. The railway tracks are routed to the second largest storing area for cars and trucks in the north-east part of the port.
The additional infrastructure comprises four 700 m long lines with dedicated hydraulic loading/unloading ramps and adaptive lighting to ensure proper visibility on both decks of railcars during night operations.
The new facility will shorten distances between storage areas and train loading points, while improving productivity and flexibility of rail operations. This is the first major investment project to be completed at the car & ro-ro terminal in 2020. (ben)
