BELGRADE (Serbia), January 29 (SeeNews) - Serbia's infrastructure minister Zorana Mihajlovic said the government plans to complete the construction of the Belgrade bypass road in 2020. 

The construction of the 19.5 km bypass road in Belgrade's Vozdovac municipality will start on February 1, Mihajlovic said, as quoted in a government statement on Friday.

The Belgrade bypass, which is set to connect pan-European corridors 10 and 11, will enhance road safety, reduce congestion in the centre of Serbia's capital and cut emissions and noise in the city, the ministry noted.

The bypass will improve the connection between Vozdovac and the Bubanj Potok access to the Nis-Belgrade motorway, where the municipality plans to launch the construction of an industrial and retail park, Vozdovac mayor Aleksandar Savic said in the statement. 

In July 2017, the Serbian government said China's state-owned hydropower engineering and construction company Sinohydro and Azerbaijani construction company Azvirt will take part in the construction of the Belgrade bypass.

The Belgrade bypass project is funded by the national budget, as well as by loans from the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) and the European Investment Bank (EIB).
