September 22 (SeeNews) - Serbia’s government said on Friday that it signed a 200 million euro ($212.7 million) agreement with China's Power Construction Corporation (PowerChina) for the design and construction of a metro depot in Belgrade.
The metro depot should be built in 60 months, finance minister Sinisa Mali said as quoted in a press release.
In 2021, the Serbian government signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with PowerChina and French companies Alstom and Egis Rail for the construction of the Belgrade metro.
Serbia started the construction of the Belgrade metro in November 2021. Completion of the first metro line is expected in 2028, with a second line expected to be built in 2030.
According to the preliminary design of the project, the Belgrade metro network will initially consist of two lines of 22 km and 19.8 km, respectively and will integrate four urban railway lines. The first line of the metro will run along the Sava river, crossing downtown Belgrade, and will link the Makisko Polje area in the southwestern part of the Serbian capital to the Mirijevo neighbourhood in the northeast, near the Danube river. The second line will connect Zemun, a northwestern suburb of Belgrade, to the Mirijevo neighbourhood through the New Belgrade urban municipality.
