BELGRADE (Serbia), November 18 (SeeNews) - The construction works on Morava Corridor, the 110 km long motorway linking Preljina to Pojate in central Serbia, will hopefully launch in the summer of next year after they were expected to start in the middle of 2019, local media reported. 

"We expect to launch construction works in June or July," news portal Moravainfo.rs quoted Serbia's infrastructure minister Zorana Mihajlovic as saying on Sunday. 

Morava Corridor will include 84 bridges, 26 overpasses, 3 underpasses, as well as 10 loops, the media report said. 

In October, the government signed a memorandum of understanding with US civil engineering group Bechtel for the construction of Morava Corridor worth 800 million euro ($885 million). 

The Morava Corridor will represent a link between European transport Corridors X and XI. Corridor X will connect Salzburg in Austria to the Greek Aegean port of Thessaloniki, passing through Slovenia, Croatia, Serbia and North Macedonia. Corridor XI is a ferry/motorway corridor linking Italy's Bari to Romania's Bucharest via Montenegro's Bar port and Serbia's Belgrade.
