The Directorate of Public Works of Montenegro has signed supervision and works contracts for track rehabilitation on the Vrbnica–Bar railway line, including repair works on overhead power lines and telecommunications utilities. The European Union is supporting this project through its IPA pre-accession funds. The overall value of the project is €5.6 million.

The part of the line which will be repaired is approximately 6.74 km long and is located between the stations Kos and Trebesica. The works will be performed on the track while traffic is operating on the line in order to minimise disruption to passengers and freight traffic.

The project will promote environmentally friendly transport modes that contribute to better connectivity of the Republic of Montenegro and the Western Balkans with the European Union, accessibility and mobility within the territory of Montenegrin and to contribute to good safety and efficiency standards on the railway sector in Montenegro.
