Opening ceremony of the renovated railway station in Grosuplje
Prime Minister Robert Golob and Infrastructure Minister Alenka Bratušek attended the official opening of the renovated railway station in Grosuplje.
The Grosuplje railway station was modernised with the help of European Recovery and Resilience funding. The Recovery and Resilience Facility contributed 13 million EUR to the 17 million EUR project. The main works at the Grosuplje railway station commenced in April 2021 and were completed in July 2022. This year, additional platform lifts have been installed.
It is one of the investment projects of the Recovery and Resilience Plan to increase the capacity of rail infrastructure, which will receive just over 284 million EUR of EU funding to promote sustainable mobility and achieve the Green Transition objectives.
The upgrade of Grosuplje railway station will remove a bottleneck on the Kočevje – Ljubljana section, increasing both the capacity and the safety of the railway infrastructure.
“The volume of state investment in public passenger transport infrastructure is increasing and will continue to do so,” said Prime Minister Robert Golob. He added that this could also cause traffic delays and called for understanding and tolerance.
The Prime Minister's presence at the opening of the railway station and the signing of the contract confirmed the importance of investing in both railway infrastructure and trains, said Infrastructure Minister Alenka Bratušek. “All these investments are further proof that the Government is not only talking about the Green Transition, but is also implementing it,” underlined Minister Bratušek.
