Serbia signs MoU on Novi Sad bypass road with China's CRBC

BELGRADE (Serbia), April 15 (SeeNews) - Serbia's government has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with China Road and Bridge Corporation (CRBC) for a 130 million euro ($156 million) construction of a bypass road around Novi Sad, it said.

The MoU stipulates that CRBC can start preparing the planning and technical documentation, conceptual solutions and environmental impact assessment, the director of state-owned motorway construction company Koridori Srbije, Aleksandar Antic, said in a press release on Wednesday.

The construction of the bypass road is very important for Novi Sad because it will ease the motor traffic in the city, but it is also important for the entire region, since it is connected to the Fruskogorski Corridor road, infrastructure minister Tomislav Momirovic said in the press release.

The construction of a bridge over the Danube is also planned, Momirovic said.

Earlier this week, the president of the northern autonomous province of Vojvodina, Igor Mirovic, said the government expects CRBC to launch next month the construction of Fruskogorski Corridor road project, which represents an upgrade to the Novi Sad-Ruma section of Serbia's IB-21 state road.

China's CSI to start Belgrade-Zrenjanin motorway construction by end-2021

Author Radomir Rale - April 15, 2021 10:47 EE

BELGRADE (Serbia), April 15 (SeeNews) - The government of Serbia's Vojvodina autonomous province said it expects China Shandong International (CSI) to start the construction of a motorway that will link Belgrade to Zrenjanin by the end of 2021.

"The project is progressing quickly and we expect that works on the first section of the road between Belgrade and Zrenjanin to begin by the end of the year," the president of the Vojvodina government, Igor Mirovic, said in a statement.

The provincial government will help, in coordination with local authorities, in the preparation of project and technical documentation, in order to start the construction as soon as possible, Mirovic said during a meeting with representatives of CSI.

Investment in the construction of the 56 km-long Belgrade-Zrenjanin motorway will total 280 million euro ($335 million), while a further 250 million euro will be invested in the 50 km-long Zrenjanin-Novi Sad expressway, Serbia's president Aleksandar Vucic said in 2019.

Zrenjanin is located in Vojvodina, near the railway line linking Belgrade to Hungary's Budapest. The Serbian government is also carrying out a major overhaul of the railway line with Chinese funding, in order to enable high-speed circulation of trains along the route.

Worth noting, China has some large investments in Zrenjanin, including an almost billion-euro Ling Long car tire factory under construction...

The above article has a mistake, it refers to "Zrenjanin-Novi Sad expressway" - when in fact, it has been decided it will be a motorway after all.

Speaking of Zrenjanin, seems like they're trying to break Belgrade's record for longest bypass road construction. It's coming along very slowly :(

Actually, that last one, Čačak-Kraljevo is being built by Bechtel, a firm with confirmed CIA affilliations and said to be part of the whole US "deep state" establishment. They build projects in largely occupied, colonized or otherwise failed states.

So I'd rather take the Chinese, thank you very much.

Really looking forward to this motorway, it will pass nearby the pretty township of Belo Blato, where we have some land.

My dad bought it thinking he was gonna retire and enjoy some local fishing there, but passed away not two years after :( Funny, it was probably the only thing he ever did without consulting his wife 🤣
