A new pedestrian tunnel is being built at the Novi Sad station, which is also under reconstruction. The complete reconstruction of the Novi Sad-Kelebia line is planned to be completed in November 2024, informs Railway Supply magazine.

The modernization of the Jainci-Mila Krishna line (68.8 km) as part of the Pan-European Railway Corridor X, which runs through Serbia, is nearing completion. In September 2021, work began on the section Nis – Brestovac, which is part of the corridor between Nis and Presevo.

Eight reinforced concrete bridges are under construction, including the longest (180 m) across the South Morava River in the Dolevat municipality. After the reconstruction would be completed in June 2023, the speed here will increase to 120 km/h. From October 2021 restoration works are being carried out on the Khorgosh-Bachky section (3.6 km of the Subotica-Khorgosh line, 26.6 km long). The line will be electrified, and the speed will also increase to 120 km/h.
