Serbia-North Macedonia railway project to receive EU funding

According to the Serbian President, the European Union will provide financial support covering 35 to 50 percent of the project cost, which will lead to financing of 600 million euros.

The project is expected to receive support from the European Investment Bank (EIB) and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD).

The Serbia-North Macedonia railway project consists of the reconstruction of a 243.5 km railway line between Belgrade and Niš and will provide a rail link from Presevo in southern Serbia towards Skopje in North Macedonia.

The Niš – Presevo rail link is one of the oldest rail lines in Serbia and the most important part of Corridor X that runs through Serbia. It has a total length of 151 km and is electrified with a 25 kV, 50 Hz single-phase system along its entire length.

Within the framework of the project, 92 km of railway tracks will be completely repaired on the sections Brestovac – Vinarci, Orevo – Vranjska Banja, Ristovac – Buyanovac and Bukarevac – Presevo – border with North Macedonia. This will increase the train speed from 43 km/h to 76 km/h.
