The work entails the replacement of 15km of track subgrade and superstructure and five switches, the reconstruction of 11 crossings, and the renovation of overhead electrification, signalling and telecommunications.


Work will be carried out in 36-hour windows to avoid the complete suspension of train services, and some of the work will be carried out by Serbian subcontractors.

The project is expected to be completed during the second quarter of 2017. Completion will enable the speed of passenger trains to be increased from 50km/h today to 120km/h.
