Serbia to set up project development company for Belgrade-Budapest rail modernisation 

The Serbian government plans to set up a project development company for Belgrade-Budapest rail modernisation, informs Novosti. The new company will be separate for “Serbian Railways” holding company and will only deal with the preparation and implementation of this major project including the reconstruction of the Belgrade – Budapest railway and the construction of a second track for mixed traffic of passenger and freight trains, for speeds of up to 200 km/h. The total value of the project for the Serbian section is estimated at EUR 900 million. 

Modernisation works are expected to be launched first on Stara Pazova – Novi Sad section, followed by works on Belgrade – Stara Pazova and Novi Sad – Subotica – Hungarian Border (Kelebia) sections.

The  Belgrade -Stara Pazova-Novi Sad-Subotica-Hungarian border (Kelebia) railway line was built in 1883 as a single-track railway line. Currently, both the  superstructure and substructure are worn out, restricting speed to 71km/h and in seven locations at 20/30 km/h.
