BELGRADE (Serbia), June 22 (SeeNews) – Serbian infrastructure minister Zorana Mihajlovic said the construction of the motorway connecting Kragujevac to Batocina, in central Serbia, will be completed in March 2018.

The total length of the motorway will be 27 km, as a 22 km section will be opened to traffic next week, Mihajlovic said in an interview with Serbian public broadcaster Radio Televizija Srbije (RTS) on Wednesday. 

The remaining 5 km will be completed in March, Mihajlovic said. 

A tender for the construction of the 5 km section will be called after September, after drafting the project documents, Mihajlovic said last month.

The future motorway will connect Kragujevac, the country's fourth-largest city, to the Trans-European Transport Corridor X. For its part, Corridor X is projected to connect Salzburg in Austria to the Greek port of Thessaloniki, passing through Slovenia, Croatia, Serbia and Macedonia.
