Construction works begin: Soon, we'll get faster to the favorite destination of Serbs

The Romanian Minister of Transport and Infrastructure, Sorin Grindeanu, announced that the Feasibility Study for the highway from Timisoara to the border with Serbia will be completed this spring, as well as that a tender will be announced. Grindeanu pointed out that the construction of a joint border crossing has been agreed, which will be located about 1.55 km from the existing Moravica border crossing, and whose construction will be financed by Romania.
"The environmental permit and the steps for it are almost completed, the geo-studies are 99% completed, the laboratory results are awaited. I say that this spring the feasibility study will be completed and the tender will be announced. That is another point that I care about," Sorin Grindeanu said according to Opinia Timisoarei web portal.
The agreement on the construction of the Belgrade-Timisoara highway was signed in mid-2022 by the then Minister of Construction, Transport and Infrastructure of Serbia, Tomislav Momirovi, and the Minister of Transport and Infrastructure of Romania, Sorin Mihail Grindeanu.
The contracting parties then undertook to establish a connection between the two countries by directly connecting the Belgrade-Vatin highway (state border), which will be 65 kilometers long on the Serbian side, and the Timisoara-Moravica highway (state border), approximately 78 kilometers long, on the Romanian side.
The deadline for the completion of the Feasibility Study, which was originally set for May 4, 2022, has been extended several times, most recently to the fall of 2024. Sorin Grindeanu specified that the highway Timisoara-Moravica could be built with European funds, since it is part of the shortest route of the pan-European corridor Gdansk-Thessalonica.
