Serbia to invest 400 mln euro to revamp 220 km of roads

, News

Serbian infrastructure minister Zorana Mihajlovic said on Thursday the government plans to invest 400 million euro ($426.2 million) in the rehabilitation of 220 km of roads.

On Friday, the government will launch rehabilitation works on the 24 km-long Zabalj-Zrenjanin road, in northern Serbia, and plans to invest 733 million dinars (5.9 million euro) in the project, Mihajlovic said in a video posted on the website of public broadcaster Radio Televizija Srbije (RTS).

The government plans to discuss the inclusion of more companies in the construction works of Corridor X, as the contractor, Greece’s Aktor, does not have enough workers to complete the project by the end of 2017 as planned, Mihajlovic added.

Aktor is building the Prosek-Crvena Reka, Crvena Reka-Ciflik, Stanicenje-Pirot sections and Dimitrovgrad bypass of the Nis-Dimitrovgrad motorway. The company had completed a little more than half of the planned by February, Mihajlovic said back then.

Corridor X will connect Salzburg in Austria to the Greek port of Thessaloniki, passing through Slovenia, Croatia, Serbia and Macedonia.

In Serbia, the project includes the construction of Belgrade bypass motorway, as well as two separate sections, linking Nis to Merdare and the border with Bulgaria.
