Re-connecting East with West

Co-design sustainable infrastructure policies with us—for a competitive economy and mobility of all of us.

Welcome to the Central-European Alliance for Sustainable Mobility

Re-connecting regions
in five countries with cross-border railway lines

Railway is considered one of the critical infrastructures of the 21st century. Sustainable mobility through the Green Deal of the European Commission is the key focus of the whole of Europe. 

At the same time, today in the 21st century five EU neighbour countries–Slovenia, Austria, Croatia, Hungary and Italy–still don’t have the railway connections and all the railway border crossing they had before the second world war. It’s about time we change that.

We advocate re-constructing missing links at the railway border crossing of Slovenia with our neighbours. That is why we have a plan to upgrade the current 1,207 km of the railway lines to 1,370 km of the railway lines.

Services

What to expect
from the Alliance?

We offer railway and cycling infrastructure upgrade services based on membership in our Mobilitatis Omni institute to companies, cities and municipalities. At the same time we form partnerships with economic chambers, civic and regional institutions, and NGOs. We are more than willing to accept personal membership too.

Upgrade plan of railway lines network in Slovenia up to 2030

2021

2030

1.207 kms of all railway lines => 1.370 kms of all railway lines
333 kms of double-track lines => 333 km of double-track lines + 156 kms new double-track lines = 489 kms of double-track lines
652 kms of single tracks + 222 kms of single tracks, electrified = 874s km of single tracks => 652 kms of single tracks + 254 kms of single tracks, electrified = 906 kms of single tracks
167 kms of railways in upgrade/planning/intention => 841 kms of railways in upgrade/planning/intention
Your company key benefits
Better international connectivity among regions in five countries

There is no need why any manager should travel inside Slovenia or cross-border by car. Our proposal of three core and eleven inter-regional railway corridors will enable every manager to travel from east to west and south-north safely and time efficiently. By train.

Your city/municipality key benefits
Automatised railway stations and stops with upgraded infrastructure crossings causing no more traffic jams

Cities and municipalities will radically upgrade their railway station to bring their citizens efficiently and sustainably to their stations. No more street traffic jams due to railway and street crossing as al the core- and most important inter-regional railway crossing will be upgraded. 

Economic chamber/Civic/Regional institution/NGO key benefits
Enabling radically better cross-border mobility

The economy needs workers to travel efficiently on daily basis. And workers need frequent and cost-efficient daily cross-border connections. We will secure an upgrade of all railway cross-border crossing according to standards for railway in European Union. That will enable new opportunities for railway operators and thus frequency for railway cross-border connections.

Let's finally round the railway network that the Austro-Hungarian Empire constructed in the 19th century. Because the 20th century was really bad news for this railway network in today's five countries. At the end of the Second World War German Army mined several critical railway lines of this nework. Even more importantly, authorities in former Yugoslavia disabled several railway border crossings during the Cold War, in the 1950s and 1960s. In Slovenia alone, authorities closed six out of nine railway cross-border crossings with Austria, Hungary, and Italy and dismantled many core and regional railway border lines.

Three out of six cross-border railway crossing have been restored so far on the border of Slovenia with its three friendly neighbours in west, north and east. Additionally, out of six railway border crossings between Slovenia and Croatia, only few are used for regional and local railway transport with much less frequent connection. With the Alliance, we will jointly advocate railway cross-border re-connections and railway infrastructure upgrade according to the common European Union (EU) standards. That is why we have designed three core and eleven inter-regional (comprehensive) Trans-European Transport Network (TEN-T) railway corridor proposals.

    is the year of the railway. In the 21st century it is about time that we close the cross-border railway missing links and cross-border connections. This is one of the biggest opportunities for enhanced mobility, economic and sustainable development in European Union.
