The tender for the reconstruction of the Nis-Dimitrovgrad railway, more precisely, the Prosek (Sicevo)-Dimitrovgrad section, of 82 km, published in late September, has now been extended until February 3.

The initial deadline for expressing an interest in the reconstruction of the only part of Corridor X that is not electrified was December 21. The overhaul of this railway has been announced for decades.

In May, the president of Serbia, Aleksandar Vucic, announced, on the occasion of his meeting with the president of Bulgaria, Rumen Radev, that the works on the full reconstruction of the Nis-Dimitrovgrad railway would begin in early 2022 and that nearly EUR 270 million would be set aside for that investment.

The funds for the financing of the project come from a loan of the European Investment Bank (EUR 134 million), grants from the Western Balkans Investment Fund – WBIF (EUR 73.04 million), and the remaining EUR 61.24 million is to be set aside from the budget of Serbia.

The job of technical assistance with the future works on the railway, worth EUR 4.14 million, at the tender published by the Serbian Railways Infrastructure, also financed by the European Investment Bank, was won by a daughter company of Deutsche Bahn, the German company DB Engineering&Consulting GmbH.
