Serbia reconstructed 112 km lines of its Corridor X

The total cost of the reconstruction of six sections on Serbian Corridor X was USD 86 million and involved 112 km of railway lines.
The project was financed from the Russian state export credit.
This year, Russia and Serbia have signed a Protocol amending the export credit agreement that involves the extending of the USD 800 million credit line for railway projects. The credit granted by Russia was extended for an extra 4 years until December 31, 2021. Extension of the credit line allows for starting the reconstruction of the Stara Pazova – Novy Sad section of the Belgrade – Budapest railway line.
The USD 941 million project is being implemented by RZD International since 2014 and includes construction of modern railway infrastructure with leading edge safety standards, increasing train speeds from 30 to 120 km/h and in some sections to 200 km/h.
Delivery of 27 new Russian made DMUs, the last three of which have already arrived to Serbia, is also a part of the deal.
In January, Infrastruktura Zeleznice Srbije said it signed a USD 25.2 million contract for the reconstruction of a railway line on Belgrade-Nis line with China Civil Engineering Construction Corporation (CCECC).
In February 2017, RZD International announced that has completed the reconstruction of the Vranjska Banja-Ristovac railway section of the Trans-European transport Corridor X in Serbia.
In addition, Serbia announced that the beginning of the preparation of the technical documentation for the third section Belgrade-Budapest railway will soon be launched.
