Summer Infrastructure Renewal Continues

Ostruznica Bridge in Belgrade













Belgrade’s annual infrastructure renewal during the summer season is bringing new changes to the capital.

Current projects underway include the expansion of a key bridge along the still incomplete motorway ring-road, that aims to divert lorries away from the city centre. The bridge expansion is a crucial but, sadly, not final step in completing the ring-road.

Also ongoing is the expansion of the city centre’s pedestrian zone. Work taking many months (and still not completed) on Zmaj Jovina has stretched the pedestrian zone that centres on Knez Mihailova down towards Vasina. As we reported earlier, the city authorities have grand plans to close numerous streets to traffic and make the city centre a haven for those of us who prefer a stroll over a drive through heavy traffic.

The Ada Bridge is also receiving some of the attention with a new link to Tošin Bunar and, we are told, the addition of the long-awaited tram line that was originally meant to run down the middle of the bridge. A Spanish company is on the case so we expect the work to be conducted in an efficient and timely fashion.

Plans for further construction and reconstruction include the Slavija interchange revamp and, if reports are to be believed, a new bridge across the Danube near Vinča.

Watch this space (especially for the Slavija reconstruction) as we bring you updates on how these infrastructure renewal projects are going to affect your daily life.
