According to the state-owned rail company, Zeleznice Srbije, protesting workers from Nega Kola entered the BG Voz rail depot in Zemun around 1am last night and prevented the trains from leaving the depot.
In addition to preventing the departure of BG Voz’s electric trains, the blockade has also complicated the movement of other traffic on Belgrade’s rail network.
The remaining BG Voz trains will be running an intensified service but delays and cancellations are inevitable. According to Zeleznice Srbije, teams of experts will be working to ensure the BG Voz service continues to function as well as possible under the circumstances.
According to a statement issued by the state-owned rail monopoly: Zeleznice Srbije apologises to its customers for the inconvenience caused by this unplanned change to train services in Belgrade.
