BELGRADE (Serbia), October 4 (SeeNews) - Serbia has issued all necessary building permits for the Sremska Raca-Kuzmin section of a motorway connecting Serbia's capital Belgrade to Bosnia's Sarajevo, infrastructure minister Zorana Mihajlovic said on Friday.

The government is also preparing the project documentation for the Pozega-Kotroman section of the motorway and expects to complete it by the end of the year, Mihajlovic said, according to a statement by the infrastructure ministry.

A total of 120 million euro ($132 million) will be invested in the construction of the Sremska Raca-Kuzmin section, 5 million euro were invested in the development of project documentation, while a new bridge over the Sava river will cost 100 million euro, Serbia's prime minister Ana Brnabic said in June.

In December, the government signed a 250 million euro contract with Turkish civil engineering company Tasyapi for the construction of the Sremska Raca-Kuzmin section and the preparation of the project documentation of the Pozega-Kotroman-Uzice section.
