Integration of the Railway Line in Corridor VB in the Traffic System of Croatia and Europe

This paper discusses the possibility of improving the Pan-European VB railway corridor connecting the Adriatic coast with other parts of Croatia and Europe. Special significance belongs to the Rijeka-Zagreb-Botovo (Hungary) railway line. Significant improvement of the railway traffic in this area would be achieved by constructing a new railway line from Rijeka to Trieste, which is the logical extension of the Pan-European VB corridor. The construction of a railway line in the Adriatic-Ionian corridor along the Adriatic coast from Trieste to Dubrovnik and further towards the border would contribute to better connection of all the regions, cities and ports which it would pass through. This would have a positive impact on the overall economic development of Croatia. Regarding the interests and requirements of the international traffic, the Adriatic railway line would present the shortest way of connecting northwestern Europe with southern Europe and the Near East. The new line would offer a level of service that would contribute to greater attraction of cargo and passengers to Croatia.
