Minister of Construction, Transport and Infrastructure Zorana Mihajlovic stated that she expected that the technical documentation for the Fruska Gora corridor project would be completed by late 2016.
– A part of the technical documentation has been completed, and it is expected that the rest will be completed by the end of this year – Mihajlovic said and added that the ministry had initiated the project and the preparation of the documentation together with the Provincial Government a year and a half before.
– We are at the same time talking to all potential investors interested in investing in the construction of roads and corridors in Serbia and we are presenting the Fruska Gora corridor to them as well – she said and added that there had been interested investors.
– There have been those interested, but it's not certain yet and I can't say who they are yet – she said.
According to her, the funds for the preparation of the documentation have been procured for 2016, and for 2017 as well, if need be.
The new road between Ruma and Novi Sad with a tunnel through Fruska Gora should be 33 km long. The total cost of the route, according to earlier reports, should exceed EUR 100 million.
