SIA-M Symposium :||: Sustainable infrastructure as a bridge to connect cities and regions

We organise this premier symposium on Sustainable and Active Mobility (SAM) 130 years after the #RadkersburgerBahn (as it is called in German) was opened on the October 16th, 1890. This inter-regional rail has connected regions, cities and people along the Mura River regions with the more known Southern Railway that connected Vienna with Trieste, already back at the end of the 19th century.

Today this regions fail to re-open the #MuraDravaRails network of 375 kilometres that was in place in 1924 because of the two missing links, the cross-border rail bridge over Mura River (#OverMuraBridge) between Slovenia and Austria, and estimated seven kilometres of missing cross-border rail between Slovenia and Hungary. The former was mined at the end of the World War II (WWII) and the later was dismantled, also after the WWII. In our strong opinion this regions, cities and people deserve better connections by cross-border interregional public railway transportation along with the proposal of the long-distance cycling superhighways.

Participate in person as our member at this exclusive SAM symposium or support our crowdfunding campaign by choosing one of the three online symposium Crowdfunding Passes and/or by signing our #OverMuraBridge declaration. Select:
