The company Infrastructure of Serbian Railways has announced that it has completed the reconstruction of four tunnels on the Kraljevo-Raska railway, in the total length of 4.3 kilometers, normalizing the railway passenger traffic between the two towns.
As said, the reconstruction, which started on March 4, entailed the replacement of track material, crossties, and the ballast, the machine regulation of the tracks and the cleaning of drainage canals, and the works were completed on May 30.
