Construction of Novi Sad-Ruma-Sabac highway in mid-2017?

Minister of Construction, Transport and Infrastructure Zorana Mihajlovic stated on Sunday (July 17, 2016) that the documentation necessary for the construction of the Novi Sad-Ruma-Sabac highway was being prepared and that, under the best of circumstances, the beginning of the construction might be expected for mid-2017.

– It's up to us to prepare the documentation and then to see how we will finance the construction. Under the best of circumstances, we might expect the construction to begin in the middle of next year. This means that everything is as it should be and that we have been working on finding an investing partner all this time – Mihajlovic said to the press in Belgrade.

Mihajlovic stated that she hoped that a part of the documentation would be completed by the end of summer, and the other part by March the next year.

Mihajlovic added that, whenever there was a chance to talk to investors, large or small, there were also talks about the corridor.

– We are trying to find the best way possible to finance the project, which we have included within the 10 priority projects, next to Corridors X and XI and a part of the railway. We have been cooperating with the Provincial Government in the past period, there have been some delays, which I believe won't happen anymore – Mihajlovic said.

The technical documentation will be completed within the deadline, the minister said and added that money was being set out from the budget and that an environmental impact study was being prepared.
