- Because railway and other sustainable modes of transport provide cost-effective mobility for all solutions that benefit the economy, protect the environment and ensure that cities and regions develop and prosper while granting well-being to the population.
- Because reestablishment of the cross-border railway missing links and connections represents one of the biggest opportunities for enhanced mobility, economic and sustainable development in European Union border regions.
- Because current mobility habits in Slovenia and further in Central and Eastern Europe dominated by private motorised modes result not only in increased congestion and pollution but also reduce economic progress and social cohesion.

Railway is considered one of the critical infrastructures of the 21st century.
At the same time, today five EU neighbour countries–Slovenia, Austria, Croatia, Hungary, and Italy–still don’t have the railway connections and all the railway border crossing they had already before the second world war. It’s about time we change that. Former Yugoslavia closed eight out of eleven railway border crossings on the Slovenian border with Italy, Austria, and Hungary.
We advocate reconstructing missing links at the railway border crossings of Slovenia with our neighbours through a plan to upgrade the current 1,207 kilometres of the railway lines to 1,385 kilometres of the railway lines. Our plan and railway corridor proposals are in accordance with the:
- Transport Development Strategy of the Republic of Slovenia until 2030; and the
- Resolution on the National Programme for the Development of Transport in the Republic of Slovenia until 2030.
We took into consideration also regional and local plans, as is for example the study:
- Modernization of railway transport in the Ljubljana urban region (in Slovene: Posodobitev železniškega prometa v Ljubljanski urbani regiji).

How are the plans & proposals
presented related to the TEN_T
(Trans-European Transport Network) plans?
TEN_T policy is implementing a Europe-wide network of railway lines, roads, inland waterways, maritime shipping routes, ports, airports, and railroad terminals. It has the ultimate objective to close gaps, remove bottlenecks and technical barriers, as well as to strengthen social, economic, and territorial cohesion in the European Union (EU).
We need, of course, to de-carbonize transport and make certain that we are delivering on the Paris agreement – by the year 2030 as indicated by our president von der Leyen, with the de-carbonisation of 55 per cent and 90 per cent by 2050.
