Železnice imajo težave pri prečkanju meja
Dnevnik – Peter Pahor – 18.7.2022

Jon Worth bo z vlakom in svojim zložljivim kolesom prepotoval 27.000 kilometrov dolgo pot in pri tem prečkal vse notranje meje Evropske unije. Na terenu že več kot mesec dni spoznava, kako se lahko stvari zapletejo, ko želiš z vlakom potovati v drugo državo, kar je problem, ki ga bo morala Evropska unija urgentno nasloviti.

RTL.hr – Silvana Menđušić – 16.7.2022

U 40 dana proći će kroz gotovo sve zemlje Europske unije, vozit će se u 158 vlakova, a baš jedna hrvatska dionica, koju je planirao proći – bila bi najsporija od svih.

Utjecajni bloger vlakom obilazi EU, šokiran je stanjem u Hrvatskoj: ‘Nisam vidio goru željeznicu‘
Jutarnji – Dora Koretić – 13.7.2022

“Worth pritom nije ekstremist niti pati od manije gonjenja: cilj njegova projekta, koji mu financiraju građani putem crowdfunding kampanje, lobiranje je za uspostavu funkcionalnog željezničkog prometa na razini europske zajednice, prometa koji će ljudima omogućiti međunarodnu, ali i lokalnu povezanost te dati doprinos održivom prometnom sustavu Europe.”

 

EU Cross Border Rail Project Comes to Croatia: Oh Dear!
Total Croatia News – Paul Bradbury – 13.7.2022

Bubnarcji station itself is a sad shadow of its former self, where chickens roam the platforms where once cross-border passengers did.

“In fact, the railway in Bubnjarci is perhaps the worst I’ve seen so far, covered in oil, and the bridge it crosses is physically blocked by something, I guess to prevent migrants from crossing. That’s why I cycled here all the way to Karlovac,” said Worth.

Jon Worth, le rail européen vu d’en-bas
Mobilettre – Olivier Razemon – 5.7.2022

On ne pouvait rêver meilleure initiation à Clément Beaune: un voyage ferroviaire qui illustre le terrible décalage entre les proclamations européennes et leur traduction sur le terrain pour les voyageurs. Certes, le ferroviaire c’est long, mais à en croire Jon Worth, dont Olivier Razemon a écouté le récit avec attention, c’est aussi passablement désespérant.
