Traffic Management

 

One of HŽ Infrastruktura core activities is traffic operation and management, and our mission is to enable optimum use of traffic and transport capacities of the railway network, together with maximum safety. Within the scope of management and monitoring train operation on Croatian railway lines, and activities of dispatchers, we also provide information to railway operators on conditions of operation, i.e. traffic disturbances.

 

 

1200 traffic controllers

542 stations and stops

4300 turnouts

3600 signals

Employees of the Traffic Management and Operation Department, in line with very strict regulations, manage train running routes with the help of signalling (3,600 signals) and 4,300 turnouts, and in doing so, they enable not only regular running of trains and their safe operation, but also safety for employees working on tracks (for ex. regular maintenance, repairs of signalling, turnouts, overhead contact line, railway line, site visits after irregular events). On a daily basis, they supervise traffic operations of around 140 freight and 730 passenger trains.

Traffic management, with its operations centres, is organized in five regional units– North (Koprivnica), Centre (Zagreb), East (Vinkovci), West (Rijeka) and South (Split).
