Beograd is properly huge, it should have a network like Munich.

Agreement on the modernisation of Belgrade-Budapest railway to be signed next week
November 20, 2015

Quote:
Hungary and China have initialed the intergovernmental agreement on the modernisation of the Belgrade-Budapest railway and its signing is expected next week, at the China and Central and Eastern European Countries Summit. The Hungarian government will submit the agreement to the Hungarian parliament for ratification, and carry will out consultations with the European Commission.

The 166 km long railway line linking Budapest and Belgrade will be modernised, electrified, equipped with new safety devices and also extended with a second track, on which 740-metre-long trains will be able to run. Travel time for passenger trains between the two capitals will decrease to two and a half hours; the suburban railway system will also be modernised. The costs of modernising the Hungarian section will be more than HUF 470 billion (EUR 1.5 bn).

85% of the implementation costs will be financed by a Chinese loan, informed Péter Szijjártó, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade . After the signing of the intergovernmental agreement, negotiations about the financial questions will also come to an end. The aim, he added, is to take into account every aspect of the national economy’s interests.

According to the MTI press agency, the Chinese party would like to see Chinese-made rolling stock on the Belgrade-Budapest line. The Minister said that he made it clear to his partners that this can only happen if Chinese production bases are set up in Hungary, creating new jobs.

The Hungarian party expects the planned railway line to be the most competitive means of transport between Greek ports and the Western European market. With this investment, the Minister said, Hungary will exploit its geographical location and take another step towards being a relevant European section of the One Belt, One Road strategy: the road of Chinese economic expansion.

Great news. High time for this terrain-wise very easy line to be done. And finally we will see whether the Chinese can turn the EU's lame state of international railways into something more worthy of the 21st century.
One correction to the news above though: 166 km is the Hungarian part of the line, the overall distance is about twice that.

Impressive project for such a small country which isn't bulking with oil money.

Annex to agreement on Russian loan for Serbian railways signed - Works kick off March 2016

Thursday, 12/10/2015|13:06 | Source: Beta

Representatives of the newly formed company Infrastruktura zeleznice Srbije and Russia's RZD International signed today in Belgrade an annex to the agreement on the Russian loan for the modernization of Serbian railways, which entails the reconstruction of 77.6-kilometer stretch between Resnik and Valjevo on the Belgrade-Bar railroad.

Works valued at about USD 80 million will kick off March 2016 and last for 14 months.

The agreement on the Russian loan totaling USD 800 million was signed January 2013. Proceeds of this loan will be spent on the modernization of electrification of the Belgrade-Pancevo railroad, renovation of six railroad stretches on Corridor X in a total length of 111 kilometers, procurement of new diesel engine trains, construction of the Valjevo-Loznica railroad, and the reconstruction of the Serbian arm of the Belgrade-Bar railroad.

Serbia to set up project development company for Belgrade-Budapest rail modernisation




The Serbian government plans to set up a project development company for Belgrade-Budapest rail modernisation, informs Novosti. The new company will be separate for “Serbian Railways” holding company and will only deal with the preparation and implementation of this major project including the reconstruction of the Belgrade – Budapest railway and the construction of a second track for mixed traffic of passenger and freight trains, for speeds of up to 200 km/h. The total value of the project for the Serbian section is estimated at EUR 900 million.

Modernisation works are expected to be launched first on Stara Pazova – Novi Sad section, followed by works on Belgrade – Stara Pazova and Novi Sad – Subotica – Hungarian Border (Kelebia) sections.

The Belgrade -Stara Pazova-Novi Sad-Subotica-Hungarian border (Kelebia) railway line was built in 1883 as a single-track railway line. Currently, both the superstructure and substructure are worn out, restricting speed to 71km/h and in seven locations at 20/30 km/h.

Bela Crkva? Are they now reopening some of the Vojvodina lines that were abandoned in decades past?
