EU support to transport in Serbia on display

Serbia

As a way of bringing the citizens of Niš closer to Serbia’s development priorities in the transport sector, an exhibition entitled “EU support for the transport sector in Serbia” is taking place in the EU Info Point premises in Niš. The exhibition showcases key investment projects such as road traffic reform, the introduction of modern and cost-effective infrastructure maintenance practices, and support for road safety.

 

The exhibition comes after the European Investment Bank (EIB) signed a cooperation agreement with the city of Niš at the beginning of the year to finance the development of a sustainable public transport plan. The agreement creates conditions for the introduction of a more efficient transport system, as well as for the removal of freight traffic from the intercity railway corridor.

 

The initiative sits in the context of the European Commission’s €3.2 billion investment package to support 21 transport, digital, climate and energy connectivity projects in the Western Balkans. This is the first major package of projects under the EU’s ambitious Economic and Investment Plan for the Western Balkans 2021-2027. It gives the citizens of Niš the opportunity to learn more about planned EU investments along road and rail Corridor 10, the modernisation of the Belgrade-Niš and Niš-Preševo-Dimitrovgrad railway lines, the long-announced Niš bypass and the works on the modernisation of inland waterways infrastructure in Serbia.
