The project consists of the renewal and electrification of the 13.46 km long single-track line between Zabreh and Sumperk. The project aims to integrate the railway line more closely into the regional network around Olomouc. The line speed is increased from 70 - 80 km/h to a maximum of 100 km/h. The loading capacity of the tracks is increased from UIC category D3 to category D4, which is common throughout much of Europe and allows for 22.5t/axle.
The main objective of the project is to modernise and electrify a feeder line to a TEN-T railway line between Prague and Prerov via Ceska Trebova and to improve the regional rail traffic operations North-East of Olomouc.
