The European Union Delegation to Serbia has opened the tender for the reconstruction of the Nis-Dimitrovgrad railway, the only part of Corridor X that is not electrified and whose repair has been announced for decades.

The subject of the tender is the reconstruction and electrification of the Prosek (Sicevo)-Dimitrovgrad section of around 82 km.

Bids may be sent by December 21, and the details can be found HERE.

As the president of Serbia, Aleksandar Vucic, announced in May during a meeting with his Bulgarian colleague, Rumen Radev, the works on the full reconstruction of the Nis-Dimitrovgrad railway will begin in early 2022, and nearly EUR 270 million is to be set aside for that investment.

According to the website of the Ministry of Construction, Transport and Infrastructure of Serbia, the reconstruction of the Nis-Dimitrovgrad railway will encompass four components: component 1 – reconstruction with preparation for electrification for railway section Sicevo-Stanicenje-Dimitrovgrad (80 km), component 2 – construction of one-track route of the bypass route around the city of Nis for passenger and cargo traffic (22 km), component 3 – electrification and equipping of the railway with signalization-safety and phone-telecommunications devices from Nis to Dimitrovgrad (86 km) and component 4 – design and work supervision.

The funds for the financing of the project are provided from the loan from the European Investment Bank (EUR 134 million), a sum of 73.04 million comes in the form of grants from the Western Balkans Investment Framework, and the remaining EUR 61.24 million is set aside from the budget of Serbia.
