Macedonia to join railway tie-in of ex-Yugoslavian states.

By bne IntelliNews August 24, 2010
Macedonia will join the new joint railway project between Slovenia, Croatia and Serbia, the domestic railway operator MZ Transport announced. Thus, MZ Transport manager Oliver Derkovski rejected earlier rumours that Macedonia was not going to join the ex-Yugoslavian countries in their initiative, which is expected to improve the regional railway transportation in terms of effectiveness, profitability and speed. Derkovski will travel to Slovenia on August 31 to discuss Macedonia's involvement. The project is managed by Slovenia, being the sole EU member state among the former Yugoslavian countries, and is aimed at attracting a bigger portion of freight traffic through transport corridor 10, rather than the longer and currently more used corridor 4, which passes through Hungary. Corridor 4, which is by 900 km longer than corridor 10, currently services about ten times more trains than corridor 10.
