BELGRADE (Serbia), February 11 (SeeNews) - Construction of the fourth bridge over the Danube river in Novi Sad is expected to start in a month and a half, Serbian infrastructure minister Tomislav Momirovic said.

China Road and Bridge Corporation (CRBC) will be in charge of the works on the 130 million euro ($148.1 million) project which includes the construction of the bridge and a 2.4-km bypass road around Novi Sad, the infrastructure ministry said earlier.
The three bridges currently span the Danube in Novi Sad: Liberty Bridge, Varadin Bridge and Zezelj Bridge.
