Comparative Research of Development and Interconnections of Sisacko-Moslavacka County with Narrow and Wider Catchment Area

Komparativno istrazivanje razvijenosti i me|usobne povezanosti prometne mreze Sisacko-moslavacke zupanije s usim i {irim gravitacijskim podrucjem

Comparative research of the development of road network in Sisak- Moslavina County with the road network of the nearer and wider gravitation area shows that the average density of road network in the County is 0.46km of roads for km2 of the area, which is less than the average density of road networks in Croatia and Slovenia, but higher than the average density of road network in the neighbouring Bosnia and Herzegovina. The Sisak-Moslavina County has far greater branching of the road network in relation to wider gravitation area of the Una– Sana Canton (0.30km/km2) and the western part of the Republika Srpska (0.31km/km2). Concerning railroad network in the Sisak-Moslavina County, it is important to mention that it is unevenly spread across the entire area of the County. It is the densest in the north-eastern and southern part of the County. The impact that the railroad traffic has on the development of population, and thus indirectly on the socio-economical transformation of the settlements, dynamics of urbanization and the development, imposes the need to rebuild the railway line Sisak-Petrinja-Karlovac. In relation to its surrounding the Sisak-Moslavina County has the highest density level of the railway network regarding the number of citizens. Regarding the area the Una-Sana Canton has the lowest level of railway network density, whereas the Sisak-Moslavina County according to this indicator lags behind the Croatian average. The construction of the second tracks from Zagreb to Sisak and from Dugo Selo to Novska the density of the rail network in the County will be highly improved. Because of the great significance of the Sava River in the region, in 2002 the International Sava River Basin Commission – ISRBC with headquarters in Zagreb was formed and it consists of the representatives from Croatia, Slovenia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Serbia. The goal of the Commission is to find the possibilities and give recommendations for establishing the most favourable inland and international navigation regime on the Sava River from Belgrade via Sisak and further to the Republic of Slovenia, regarding 21 critical sections for the navigation along the Sava River.
