Abstract

The Western Zagorje is peripherally placed part of the valley Sutla with surrounding hilly frame which is separated from the Zagreb urban region and main transport routes by Marijagorica lower hills. In the middle of the 20th century the development of Sutla traffic route began, the shortest link from Zagreb to Maribor and Graz. The construction of the railway (Zagreb) - Sava Marof- Kumrovec facilitated the daily labor migration which reduced emigration and encouraged the development of small industrial centers of western Zagorje in Kumrovec and Klanjec. Yet this traffic route has never come to the full usage because of competition from other transport routes (Krapina valley and the valley of the Savinja). Due to technical deterioration of the railway, traffic was suspended on 22nd December 2000 and has not yet been restored. The aim of this work was to study the effects of the suspension of rail traffic through the valley of the river Sutla and the surrounding countryside to 5 km (Municipality Zagorska Sela, Kumrovec, Tuhelj, Desinić and Kraljevec na Sutli and city Klanjec) over the last 15 years and present opportunities for development and revitalization of marginalized space with modernization of railways and the restoration of railway lines.
