Serbian Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Construction, Transport and Infrastructure Zorana Mihajlovic announced, while taking a tour of the works on the construction of the highway from Srpska Kuca to Levosoje on Monday, September 24, that the eastern and the southern branch of Corridor 10 would be completed before the end of 2018, the competent ministry announced.
As she reminded, 6.6 kilometers of the highway opened for traffic on the Srpska Kuca-Levosoje section
, and it remains for the works on two bridges to be finalized so that the entire route might open for traffic.
– I expect MBA Ratko Mitrovic, the contractor on the bridges, to honor the deadline. The bridges are 39 and 60 kilometers long and it would be ridiculous for us to be unable to finish them, when the works on the Corridor and the Grdelica Gorge are being carried out round the clock. I don't want to see any problems – Mihajlovic said.
The acting director of the PE Roads of Serbia, Zoran Drobnjak, said that the works on the two bridges were in progress and that the entire section from Srpska Kuca to Levosoje would open for traffic in a month.
The acting director of the Corridors of Serbia, Zoran Babic, said that 96% of the works on the highway section through the Grdelica Gorge had been completed and that three of the six lots had been fully completed.
– One tube has been paved and coated at the Manajle tunnel and another one is being worked on. When it comes to the slope 2, which has collapsed, the analyses of the Faculty of Civil Engineering have shown that the remaining mass is not moving, and we are working to treat the slope round the clock. Around 300,000 cubic meters of earth need to moved in around ten days so that we would be able to install piles for a 150-m gallery – Babic said.
The Srpska Kuca-Levosoje section on Corridor 10 is 8.06 km long, and the works are being carried out by the consortium of Srbijaautoput and MBA Ratko Mitrovic.
