(ANSA) - ZAGREB - EC confirmed today that the modernization and expansion of Krizevci-Dugo Selo railway line, in northern Croatia, will be financed by the European Union's cohesion funds, media in Zagreb reported, citing the EU Commissioner for Regional policy Corina Cretu.

This is one of the most important railway links in Croatia, between the town of Krizevci and Zagreb, as part of the Mediterranean European corridor. At a regional level, this corridor links Hungary, Croatia and Slovenia, while on a continental scale, the railway starts in Spain and ends at Hungary's external borders, thus connecting the Mediterranean Sea to Eastern Europe. The Commission has earmarked € 145 million, 85% of the entire investment, for the 38 km long railway, including six bridges.

This is currently the largest investment in infrastructure in Croatia, whose construction is already underway. (ANSA).
