The clearing of the terrain on which the highway from Belgrade through Zrenjanin to Novi Sad is to be built has officially begun, as announced on his Instagram profile by the minister of construction, transport and infrastructure of Serbia, Goran Vesic, who also uploaded a video showing the excavators clearing the terrain.

Aside from this notification and the note saying that the promise made had thus been fulfilled, the competent minister did not provide any additional information in this post, not even how long the clearing is supposed to take, or any other deadlines.

Let us remind that, in mid-October, in China, the agreement on the construction of the highway between Belgrade, Zrenjanin and Novi Sad, which will be 105 kilometers long, was signed. As Vesic pointed out a month and a half ago, the planning of that highway is being completed and the works are expected to start next year. He also said at the time that “Novi Sad will thereby be connected to the third highway, making the city very well connected in terms of traffic.”

Nearly four years ago, the Memorandum of Understanding and the preparation of the planning and technical documentation for the construction of the Belgrade (Borca)-Zrenjanin-Novi Sad highway was signed with China Shandong International Economic and Technical Cooperation Group. The draft spatial plan of the special-purpose area of the corridor of this highway was available for public inspection two and a half years ago.

This summer, the Government of Serbia formed the work group for the realization of the project, whose task, according to the decision, was to cooperate with Shandong Hi-Speed Group for the purpose of defining the elements and the proposal of the contents of the commercial agreement to the end of building that highway.

The construction of the Belgrade-Zrenjanin-Novi Sad highway, which has been pronounced a project of special importance for the Republic of Serbia, was first announced for 2019, then for 2020, then for 2021, and then for February 2022. Subsequently, it was prolonged until 2024.
