Two years from now, trips to Poland by train will become faster and more comfortable thanks to a refurbished section from Dětmarovice to the Czech-Polish border, via Petrovice u Karviné. The reconstruction project officially started on 25 September 2020. This is one of the

first projects co-financed through the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) Transport Blending Facility, which combines funds from EU’s CEF for up to 20% of the eligible costs of implementation, and a loan from the European Investment Bank (EIB) covering up to 50% of the total investment costs.

The overall investment cost of the project, which comprises refurbishment of a total of 10.8 kilometres of the railway line, comes close to CZK 3 billion.

Removing bottlenecks on the Czech Republic core network.   The project is part of the modernisation of eight sections along the main railway corridors aiming at removing bottlenecks on sections of the Core Network corridors in the Czech Republic.

The actual work will be carried out by the Dětmarovice Association, consisting of the STRABAG Rail and OHL ŽS companies. Along with an electrified double-track section on the transit railway corridor from Dětmarovice to the Czech-Polish border via Petrovice u Karviné, the single-track connection between the Závada and Koukolná branches will also be renovated, making it possible to travel by train from Poland to Karviná without ‘zig zag’.

Thanks to the improvement of railway substructure, track structure and bridges, trains will no longer have to slow down from 100 to 65 kph in the Petrovice u Karviné station. State-of-the art safety equipment will be installed along the entire section, including the stations. The project will also include the reconstruction of the overhead lines and installation of new lines where need be. The power supply station in Petrovice u Karviné will also undergo refurbishment.

Connecting Europe Facility.    European Commission’s Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) Transport Blending Facility was launched in 2019 to further promote the participation of private sector investors and financial institutions in projects supporting environmental sustainability and transport efficiency in Europe. The €200 million facility supports two specific transport areas: European railway traffic management systems and alternative fuels. 

EIB’s investment for sustainable transport.    Historically, the EIB has supported in large extend clean investments in the railway sector and urban public transport in particular metro and tramway projects contributing to the large share of climate action projects. EIB’s investments in lower carbon transport (railway, metro, tramways and alternative fuels) increased by 30% between 2018 and 2019 to reach EUR 7.6bn in 2019.
