Russia is interested in taking part in the construction of the Belgrade metro, the head of the international economic relations department of the City of Moscow, Sergey Cheremin, said after a meeting with Belgrade mayor Sinisa Mali. Belgrade would like to build its underground railway system in cooperation with Russian partners, Sinisa Mali added.
“I hope that our companies, that have many years of experience in building complex metro systems, not only on the territory of the former Soviet Union, but also in other countries, will participate in the construction of the Belgrade metro,” Sergey Cheremin said.
Sinisa Mali and Moscow mayor Sergey Sobyanin signed a contract for cooperation between the governments of the capital cities of Serbia and Russia for the period 2018-2020.
Belgrade city authorities have developed a master plan for the Belgrade Metro project and are working on a feasibility study. The construction of the metro line is expected to begin at the end of 2018 if all preconditions are met.
