The project is supported by a loan of 36.9 million euros from the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development and a grant of up to 35.5 million euros under the European Western Balkans Connection Program.

It is planned that the modernization will increase the speed of trains. Now this figure is below 60 km/h.
