Serbia expects to complete the construction of a trunk road connecting Belgrade to Pan-European Transport Corridor XI by 2021, infrastructure minister Zorana Mihajlovic has said.
The construction of the 9-km Surcin-Belgrade trunk road will start next year, Mihalovic said, as quoted in a statement by the government on Wednesday.
Serbia signed a $233.69 million (204.9 million euro) agreement with China on the design and construction of Surcin-Obrenovac section of Corridor XI in June 2016. The agreement was signed by Serbia’s economy minister and the director of CCCC during an official visit of China’s president Xi Jinping to Belgrade.
Corridor XI runs through Serbia from the northeastern border with Romania to the southwestern border with Montenegro.
