Bratislava Regional President Frešo says TEN-T rail project will ease traffic

In addition to connecting Bratislava and Paris by rail, the TEN–T 17 project should incorporate passenger rail transport within Bratislava's public transport system and help to alleviate congested routes between Bratislava and nearby towns and villages, Bratislava Regional President Pavol Frešo said on May 16, as reported by the TASR newswire. "By introducing new rail stops in the city and modern trains, the TEN-T project will provide an alternative to individual car transport, which puts a burden on Bratislava from the directions of Senec, Pezinok and Dunajská Lužná," said Frešo.

Frešo recently held talks with European Commission Vice-President Maroš Šefčovič at the latest session of the EU’s Committee of the Regions. He briefed Šefčovič on the latest measures that Bratislava City Hall, the Transport Ministry and rail companies have taken regarding the project.

TEN–T 17 is aimed at revamping rail connections into a high-speed route covering 1,500 kilometres from France through Germany and Austria to Bratislava. It will serve both passenger and freight transport.
