BELGRADE (Serbia), August 21 (SeeNews) – Serbia's infrastructure ministry said Bulgarian construction company Trace Group Hold [BUL:T57] has started the laying of asphalt on a motorway section of Corridor X in Grdelicka Klisura canyon in eastern Serbia. 

Trace Group has started laying asphalt on a 4.7 km-long stretch of Corridor X, between the Predejane tunnel and Caricina Dolina, the infrastructure ministry said in a statement on Friday.

The works represent the first asphalt laying in Grdelicka Klisura in the last 30 years, infrastructure minister Zorana Mihajlovic said in the statement. 

The Predejane-Caricina Dolina stretch is part of the 11.8 km-long Grdelica-Caricina Dolina section of the southern area of Corridor X in Serbia. Trace is also building the Bela Palanka-Pirot and Pirot-Dimitrovgrad sections of the eastern area of the corridor.
