For the Belgrade Center-Stara Pazova railway line, the construction and electrical infrastructure will be completely reconstructed and modernized, so that trains could travel at speeds of up to 120 kilometers an hour from Belgrade to Batajnica, and of up to 200 kilometers per hour from Batajnica to Stara Pazova, where there will be four tracks. Now the trains on that line run at a maximum speed of 70 kilometers per hour. This section is expected to be completed within three years.
