Serbia hires China's CRBC to build 1.5 bln euro section of Corridor XI Ministry of Infrastructure Press Office

BELGRADE (Serbia), December 27 (SeeNews) - China Road and Bridge Corporation (CRBC) and Serbia signed a contract worth 1.5 billion euro ($1.7 billion) under which the Chinese firm will build a 75-kilometre section of pan-European Corridor XI, Serbian president Aleksandar Vucic said.

The section will connect the city of Pozega and the village of Duga Poljana, both located in Serbia's south-west, Vucic told a news conference on Sunday after meeting with CRBC representatives. "Out of 75 kilometres [...] over 70% will be either tunnels or bridges," he added.

Upon the finalisation of the construction works, which are scheduled to take up to four years, Serbia will have only a 32-kilometre section between Belgrade and the Montenegrin border left to build to complete the Corridor XI project on its territory, Vucic said.

Pan-European Corridor XI is a ferry/motorway corridor linking Italy's Bari to Romania's Bucharest via Montenegro and Serbia.
