The Cohesion Fund invests almost €285.5 million for faster travel in northern Slovakia, on the railway line between the cities of Žilina and Púchov, near the border with the Czech Republic on the Trans-European Transport Network, or TEN-T.
The project will upgrade the section of the line between Púchov and Považská Teplá so that trains can travel up to 160 km/h, and it will also fund the construction of two tunnels, three largebridges and the refurbishment of two railway stations at Považská Teplá and Považská Bystrica.
The EU is investing almost €3.5 billion in transport and energy networks in Slovakia under the 2014-2020 Cohesion Policy.
