I think they'll go up to a cost effective point, I don't expect real HSR in Chinese terms built here, but even if it goes at 160 it will be the fastest option by far and given the short distances even that would be enough, for example to get from the northernmost par of Hungary to the southernmost would take under an hour even with 160. But don't forget that this corridor is unusable for anything atm, it takes 8-9 hours between Budapest and Belgrade, it is ridiculous, imagine how long cargo travels from Thessaloniki to Vienna, they simply have to do something about it.

The terrain between Budapest and Belgrade is so flat that the cost of building a straighter 350kph track rather than a slightly less straight 250kph track is nothing. South of Nis the difference would be huge in cost terms.

The problem is telling ....say.... Subotica that you are going straight 'past' them so the line is not crooked and slow. They will not be happy.

The Chinese do not have those sorts of problems at home.

Yes although the current corridor in Hungary is really like that, it doesn't touch any major cities but goes through the middle of nowhere, and I think they might decide to upgrade the one that goes through Szeged and Kecskemet for this, we'll see.

That sound great , no politics involved and nobody (new) misses out.

I'd say the Chinese will build it in two years flat.

In my opinion, they are wasting money if they build it above 200 kph. Why waste billions of dollars when the entire network is falling apart and barely usable. It is better to rebuild all the main corridors (corridor 10 and Beograd-Bar) up to usable standard of 160 kph and perhaps 120 for Beograd-Bar, rather than focusing on a single stretch.

But before they even spend a single dollar on track, they need to get the border crossings figured out, for both trains and motorways.

That's simple bureaucracy, they've signed some agreement on it yesterday.

Can't wait to drive/bike over that bridge next year. Glad it was completed on time, unlike many other projects in Serbia.

Glavonja Dodik was there too!? What a tool.

In 2015 Serbia will open a big number of new roads.Many of them will be motorways.

Nice. First bridge over Danube in Belgrade after 79 years, and I'm going to Belgrade tomorrow for the first time... what a coincidence.

type in about:support and then click in the right upper corner ("Reset Firefox" or something like that). Don't worry, you won't loose any saved passwords or bookmarks.
