Project “Upgrade of the Rijeka port infrastructure – Zagreb Deep Sea Container Terminal (POR2CORE-ZCT)” contributes to the development of the Port of Rijeka as one of the core ports in the Mediterranean through ensuring the efficiency, sustainability and multimodality of freight transport. The project was applied to the second call of the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) Traffic 2015, Cohesion envelope, Grant Agreement no. INEA/CEF/TRAN/M2015/1138367 was signed on 18 November 2016 between the Innovation and Networks Executive Agency and the Port of Rijeka Authority, thus ensuring 85% of co-financing from the European funds. The total value of the project is 31,6 million EUR.
Reconstruction of the cargo section of the Rijeka railway station and construction of the terminal for railway intermodal transport at the Zagreb Pier Container Terminal is planned in three stages:
• The reconstruction of the cargo section of the Rijeka railway station includes the reconstruction and extension of 12 tracks and pull-out tracks, construction of cable sewage, installation of telecommunication cables, power and lighting cables, works on the contact grid, as well as works on the lower structure in order to improve the bearing capacity and drainage of the foundation (investor HŽ Infrastruktura).
• Construction of track facilities connections and cable sewage in the area of the connection of reconstructed tracks of the Rijeka freight station and terminals to existing state (investor Port of Rijeka Authority).
• Construction of four 400-m long tracks on the new part of the Zagreb Pier Container Terminal and two tracks for portal cranes (investor Port of Rijeka Authority).
