Corridor Drava–Mura–Raba–Danube proposal is connecting Osijek in Podravina in Croatia and Bratislava in Slovakia.
The railway line from Osijek to Varaždin in Croatia is already being signed into the core TEN-T. Line from Varaždin to Čakovec is also already in plan for upgrade. In Croatia this corridor needs only the upgrade of the line from Čakovec to state border in Slovenia in Središče. The railway line from Čakovec to the border in Hungary (Murakeresztúr) and to the border in Slovenia (Središče) is already signed into the comprehensive TEN-T, but is currently single-track and non-electrified. In Slovenia this corridor needs the second track from Ormož via Ljutomer and Murska Sobota to Hodoš and further to Zalaegerszeg in Hungary. In Hungary and Slovakia this corridor also needs upgrade of its lines.
For the leg Graz in Austria to Szombathely in Hungary upgrade of this railway line is also foreseen as this line is currently single-track and electrified but also already signed into TEN-T.
Crossing four countries this Core Trans-European Transport Network (TEN-T) proposal is connected with two core TEN-T Corridors:
- Mediterranean Corridor, Almería–Valencia/ Algeciras/ Madrid–Zaragoza/ Barcelona–Marseille–Lyon–Torino–Milano–Verona–Padova/ Venezia– Trieste/ Koper–Ljubljana–Budapest with leg Ljubljana/Rijeka–Zagreb–Budapest–Záhony (Hungarian-Ukranian border), established November 10th 2013; with
- Baltic–Adriatic Corridor, Swinoujscie/Gdynia-Katowice-Ostrava/Žilina-Bratislava/Vienna/Klagenfurt-Udine-Venice/Trieste/Bologna/Ravenna/Graz-Maribor-Ljubljana-Koper/Trieste; and with freight:
European Union (EU) provides funding for railway infrastructure and railway terminals also through EU Cohesion Policy. The co-financing rate of EU grants is up to 85 percent. Funding is channelled through the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and the Cohesion Fund (CF).
