The consortium led by Slovenian company Kolektor CPG has started the construction of the new railway between Koper and Črni Kal. The construction will require more than 1000 workers. In partnership with two Turkish companies Yapi Merkezi and Özaltin, Kolektor CPG will complete the construction project by 2025 at the cost of €628 million. The new railway will be opened to traffic in 2026. About a half of the workers will come from Turkey, and the rest will consist of Slovenian workers.
