Construction completion ceremony of the Reconstruction and Capacity Increase of the Studénka – Mošnov Line
Studénka, 2 December 2013 – Today the Railway Infrastructure Administration officially ended the reconstruction of the single track line Studénka – Veřovice in the section between the railway stations Studénka and Sedlnice. The construction created conditions for the implementation of separate follow-on investments of the Moravian-Silesian Region, which ensures approximately 3 km long rail link of the Leoš Janáček Ostrava Airport to the newly reconstructed line.
Reconstruction of the current line resulted in increasing line speed allowed up to 100 km/h, increasing bearing strength of the line and artificial structures, and improving capacity of the line. The reconstructed section was equipped with a 3KV DC electric traction system. Furthermore the sleeper bed was redeveloped including drainage modifications, removal of existing track skeleton including gravel ballast and new railway superstructure was built. In addition bridges and passes were redeveloped as well.
Increased capacity of the reconstructed line section was achieved by the construction of a new passing point in Bartošovice. New safety, communication and power equipment allowing remote control was installed. A new stop was built for Sedlnice and with the beginning of the new timetable there will be a change in passenger train stopping from the Sedlnice railway station to the stop of the same name located on the reconstructed line section, thereby shortening the access distance from the village Sedlnice by approximately one kilometre.
Another objective of the construction was to create conditions not only for constructing a new line to the airport (currently under construction), but also for connection to the industrial zone. The existing siding was closed and replaced by a new siding. The vacant space provides territory for the needs of investors in the industrial zone, while also removing the existing level crossing of the siding with a class II road, which will be the D47 motorway slip road.
The project with total construction costs amounting almost up to 360 million Czech crowns (excluding VAT), is by more than 60% co-financed within the framework of the Operational Transport Programme by the European Union under the Cohesion Fund. National funding was secured by the State Fund for Transport Infrastructure. The construction supplier was Viamont DSP, and SUDOP Praha was the general designer.
