Central European countries launch proposal for new rail freight corridor

The transport ministers of Poland, Slovakia and Hungary have signed a letter of intent to establish rail freight corridor no 11.  The document underlines the importance of high quality rail freight services on the Amber Road, the ancient trade route for the transfer of amber from the Baltic Sea to the Mediterranean.

The new rail freight corridor will link the Port of Koper in Slovenia, through western Hungary to Slovakia and Poland’s industrial centers.

According to Slovenia’s Infrastructure Minister Peter Gašperšič, all the planned connections are an additional incentive for Slovenia to further develop services in the Port of Koper, as well as an additional impetus to facilitate the development of railway infrastructure and railway freight transport growth in Slovenia.
