Slovenia’s Infrastructure Ministry has announced it will take more time to come up with a list of the most appropriate public-private partnerships models for the second rail track between Koper port and inland hub Divača.
A shortlist would be ready in September, while the best model would be chosen by the end of the year.
Initially, the ministry said a shortlist would be drafted by July and the best model picked in autumn.
The postponement comes after the project has not been approved for the EU’s CEF funding mechanism for infrastructure projects.
Slovenia has hired the OECD to help with the PPP models for the construction of the track currently valued at about EUR 1.4 billion.
