After completing an environmental impact assessment study, the company will work out a feasibility study for the project and develop a conceptual design for a second metro line, reports Railway Supply citing Egis Rail.

The line will connect Zemun, a northwestern suburb of Belgrade, with the Mirievo area through the city municipality of New Belgrade. Belgrade Deputy Mayor Goran Vesic said the deadline for the completion of the contract is 25 months, so construction of the second line could start in 2023 and end in 2030.

“The construction of the first line of the Belgrade metro is scheduled to start in November this year and finish in 2028”, Vesic said.
