Reconstruction of the railway station Bojkovice including the reconstruction of the signalling installation completed
Bojkovice, 11/02/2011 – another significant construction implemented under the project of the subsidiary lines reconstruction was festively completed. The completed reconstruction of the railway station Bojkovice in the Zlin region represents an important phase of the progressive reconstruction carried out along the whole railway section – the objective of which is to be the long-distance rail operation control. The investor of the event was the Railway Infrastructure Administration, state organization (SŽDC).
Under the reconstruction of the substructure and superstructure, the inconveniently positioned Slavičín station head was relocated in the direction towards the station building. As a result, the level crossing was also relocated from its current position to the station head. A new technological building for signalling, telecommunication and heavy-current installations was built.
Passengers can benefit from an up-to-date two-sided platform (233 m long) between track No.1, 1a -3 and a new outside platform near track No. 5 (70 m long). The platform edge is 550 millimetres over the top of rail to allow an easier access and exit. Passengers with limited mobility can use the access from the reconstructed area outside the station building to the platform near track No.5 via an inclined ramp equipped with a safety handrail.
The completed reconstruction meets the requirements for the European Interoperability. It is one of the conditions to ensure a functioning integrated trans-European railway system. The interoperability is regarded as the ability of this system to provide safe and uninterrupted train operation by various carriers who meet the basic parameters laid down for these selected lines. „The interoperability consists of a number of technical and legal interventions which harmonize different national railway systems, thus creating an open and integrated European railway network,“ commented on today´s festive occasion Ing. Pavel Habarta, MBA, SŽDC´s Executive Director.
The implementation of this construction has also substantially enhanced the rail operation safety. In Bojkovice, a new electronic interlocking - 3rd (top) category has been installed and is controlled from the Unified Control Place (JOP), getting ready for the long-distance control. Railway stations and train stops have been equipped with a new station announcement system including the automatic announcement device. The island platform has been equipped with a voice device to allow an easier orientation for visually-impaired citizens.
The construction is funded from the State Fund for Transport Infrastructure. The investment costs total CZK 243 945 000,- without VAT (CZK 292 734 000,- with VAT). The project „Reconstruction of the railway station Bojkovice including the reconstruction of the signalling installation“ is co-funded under the Operational Programme Transport. The contribution from the Cohesion Fund may represent up to 85 % of eligible costs of the construction, i.e. CZK 188 809 650,-.
