The new bridge on the Sava river near Ostruznica, on the bypass route around Belgrade, has opened to traffic.
The bypass route is important for the economy and the citizens of Belgrade alike, as it will unload the traffic, increase the traffic flow and efficiency and help reduce air pollution in the city. The completion of this bridge marks the finalization of the investment of EUR 100 million in the bypass route made by the European Investment Bank (EIB).
This is a special kind of construction, as the bridge was built in a manner which involved the installation of the structure from boats. Another part of the bridge, built in 1999, which was bombed, is expected to be repaired.
