The construction of the subway system, which will be worth around EUR 3.8 billion, should start in late 2020, said Deputy Mayor of Belgrade Goran Vesic.

At the public hearing about the quality of air in Serbia, organized by the Committee on the Environment of the National Assembly of the Republic of Serbia, he said that, upon the completion of the project, around 30% of the street traffic would be moved underground.

– In the past six years, we've built around 180 kilometers of the railway for BG Voz, and the plan is to continue connecting Surcin, Obrenovac, Karaburma and Makis – Vesic announced and added that, once the ongoing repair of a part of the railway is done, trains would run every 15 minutes at peak hours and every 30 minutes at off-peak hours.

All the suburban municipalities of Belgrade, except for Grocka, will then be connected by the city railway system with the city center, Vesic added, as reported by Beoinfo.
