25. April 2016.

Presevo – The reconstruction and modernization of three railroad sections on Corridor 10 stretching from Presevo to Nis, after which the speed of trains will be increased from 40 to 100 kilometers per hour, is an important project not only for the railroads, but also for the entire Serbia, said Miodrag Poledica, State Secretary at the Ministry of Transport. 

On the occasion of visiting works on the reconstruction of the Vranjska Spa – Ristovac section of the railroad, he said that the reconstruction of the railroad was done by the Russian “RZD International” company, as well as that the subcontractors were Serbian companies.

According to him, the money would be spent on the reconstruction of the railroad and on the procurement of 27 diesel locomotives, of which ten had already been delivered to Serbia, while the remaining ones would be delivered by the end of the year.

Mansurbek Sultanov, Deputy Director of the Russian “RZD International” company, said that he expected that the reconstruction of three railroad sections on Corridor 10, those from Nis to the Macedonian border, would be completed ahead of the schedule and that it would cost 26.4 million dollars.


Works on the Presevo-Nis railroad section, the length of which is 46 kilometers, started on Monday, April 18, and they will last until June. Until then, the railroad leading to Macedonia will be closed to passenger traffic, while freight trains will run at every 36 hours.

Works on the reconstruction of the railroad on Corridor 10 will be discontinued during the summer and will be resumed in the autumn. The completion deadline for works is the end of the year.
