BELGRADE (Serbia), Sept.28 (SeeNews) – Serbia plans to build three industrial zones along the Morava Corridor, a 110 km highway connecting Preljina to Pojate in the center of the country which is being built by a consortium of ‘an American civil engineering group Bechtel and the Turkish Enka, said President Aleksandar Vucic.
The highway is expected to contribute significantly to the development of local municipalities and the environment it passes through, and represents a great opportunity for the national economy and industry, Vucic said in a press release Monday.
“Residents of Cicevac, Varvarin, Krusevac, Trstenik, Vrnjacka Banja, Kraljevo and Cacak will directly benefit from the project,” Vucic said in a meeting with representatives of the Bechtel-Enka consortium.
Serbia signed a â¬ 745 million ($ 873 million) contract for the construction of the Morava Corridor Motorway with the consortium in December 2019.
The highway will have 88 bridges, 29 level crossings and 11 toll booths. The 112 km motorway will have three sections: Pojate-Krusevac, Krusevac-Adrani and Adrani-Mrcajevci. The Morava Corridor Motorway will connect the European Transport Corridors X and XI on the territory of Serbia.
