At the session of the working group for the construction of the Belgrade subway, the solutions and the conceptual design of the third subway line, which should connect New Belgrade and Banjica, were considered. According to the announcements made by the deputy mayor of Belgrade, Goran Vesic, the line will have 21 stations, and a ride between the first and the last station should take 34 minutes.
– The third line of the Belgrade subway should connect New Belgrade and Banjica. The line will have 21 stations: Surcinska Street, Block 61, Gandijeva Street, IMT, Block 42, Arena, Usce, the Port (Pristaniste), Republic Square, National Assembly, Manjez, Visegradska Street, Prokop, Autokomanda, Vitanovacka Street, Stadion Shopping Center, Brace Jerkovic and Stepa Stepanovic neighborhoods, Trosarina, Banjica and the trolley terminal at Paunov Breg – said Vesic, as reported by Beoinfo.
Vesic reminded that the routes of the first two lines of the subway were known and that the solutions and the conceptual design of the third line was being prepared.
– The third line will cross the first one at the Republic Square and the second one at the Manjez Park – Vesic said.
He added that the possibility of connecting the second and the third line in Zemun had been considered.
– The section would entail only a few kilometers and the proposition was sent for consideration to the designer, the company Egis. According to that proposition, the third line would in fact begin where the second one ends. We already have this in Mirijevo, where the first and the second line end. Such a solution would make the system more functional – Vesic said.
Vesic reminded that the contest for the preliminary architectural design of the first 17 stations of the Belgrade Subway would open in May.
– We will invite our architects, looking for each station to feature a different design, reflecting that part of the city or some other detail from the history of Serbia and Belgrade – Vesic said.
The meeting was attended by the head urban planner of Belgrade, Marko Stojcic, the assistant to the mayor of Belgrade, Andreja Mladenovic, the city secretary for public transport, Jovica Vasiljevic, and the director of the PUE Beogradski metro i voz, Stanko Kantar.
