Spatial Development Visions: Green Rail Infrastructure

The 27th Sedlar meeting of town and spatial planners.

We are going to examine the development of the European infrastructure corridors Baltic - Adriatic and Mediterranean on their Slovenian segments and the railway infrastructure priority of Slovenia: the second track on the railway Divača – Koper (to The Port of Koper) on the Mediterranean corridor. We will discuss the Slovenian railways' development vision and projects, such as the second track Ljubljana – Jesenice (with rail connection to Ljubljana Airport),  Ljubljana Railway Junction and Rail Road Terminal for Ljubljana etc. On the same note we are going to discuss the Slovenian Motorway project which is, according to public opinion, the greatest achievement of Slovenian spatial planning in the last century. In the explanation of the Maks Fabiani Award Jury which awarded the project a special award in 2015 it was stated: "The project marks an historical breakthrough in the connectedness and accessibility of our national space and its linkage to the European transport network. It also implies a new breakthrough similar to the construction of the railway more than a century ago, during the reign of the Habsburg monarchy”.  

The aim of the meeting is to encourage both the professional and lay publics to engage in critical discussion, but also the government on the local and state level to take necessary decisions and adopt appropriate measures. The response of speakers also showed that it the topic is on time and true, while at the TSPAS we are pleased that with your help we will be able to complement the discussion on Slovene rail infrastructure and possibly accelerate solutions!
