BELGRADE (Serbia), October 28 (SeeNews) – Serbia plans to open for traffic the entire eastern section of pan-European Corridor X linking Nis to the border with Bulgaria on November 9, the infrastructure ministry said.

"From November 9, we will have a complete motorway to Bulgaria, which is very important for the transit traffic through our country," Serbia's infrastructure minister Zorana Mihajlovic said in a statement on Friday. 

The commissioning of this 22.5 km long section is of great importance for road safety because drivers on the road from Nis to Pirot and Dimitrovgrad will no longer have to pass through the Sicevo Gorge, the ministry said in September.

Corridor X will connect Salzburg in Austria to the Greek port of Thessaloniki, passing through Slovenia, Croatia, Serbia and North Macedonia. In Serbia, the project includes the Belgrade bypass motorway, as well as two separate sections, linking Nis to Levosoje, near the border with North Macedonia, to the south, and to the border with Bulgaria to the east.
