Intermodal System Rijeka – Central Europe – Project

The international project SETA (South East Transport Axis, Adriatic - Central Europe) has proven the strategic importance and the interest of the European Union (EU) and of the Republic Croatia for the development of public transport on the Rijeka traffic route. Also, an EU interest was established for investments of new investment funds in the construction of new and modernization of the existing facilities of railway transport infrastructure, and the economic justification of investments of that development capital (cf. [3]) has been proven. The fundamental goal of developing this RFC RH2 (TEN-T) corridor and substantial capital investments do not only mean a rapid increase in transport of goods and passengers between the EU and the countries of the Near, Middle and Far East via the ports of the North Adriatic, but also drastic reduction of the external costs of transport (cf. [4]), which increasingly threaten the sustainability of life in the EU and on the Earth. Consequently, now it is absolutely necessary to design and as quickly as possible to apply modern 3E (Environmentally sustainable, Energy rational and Economically feasible) intermodal transport system ISRCE in which the electrified railway and waterways with LNG (Liquid natural gas) drive motors will take on a minimum of 85% of the existing and new land transport, and road transport to a maximum of 15%, which is opposite of the current situation [1].
