By: P.T., STA

The first of the seven tunnels on route of the new, 27-km railway linking the port town of Koper with the Divača railway junction was broken through.

The hole-through ceremony for the Mlinarji tunnel was attended by the Slovenian and Turkish infrastructure ministers as the track is being built by Slovenian company Kolektor CPG in cooperation with two Turkish partners. Slated for completion in 2025 and due to open in 2026, the new track is valued at almost EUR 1 billion, but officials indicated today that its price tag could increase by up to EUR 100 million due to rising prices.
