After the signing, Vucic said that the highway means a better life for citizens in Moravica, Raska and Rasina districts.
Vucic expressed the expectation that in less than four years this corridor will be built and stressed that it will be the widest highway in Serbia - 0.8 metres wider than the other on both sides, and that it is a digital highway.
He said that the Morava corridor means the arrival of investors, but also the stay of people in Serbia.
Young people will see that there is a future, that we can do better, that we are ready to work. People can not only wait for a better future, but also participate in the creation of the future and that their children can expect that better future, he said.
Wilkinson stated that they have worked on the project for more than two years, and that today they have started a strong friendship with the government of Serbia and the Corridors of Serbia.
I believe this will be a transformational project for the economy and the region, flood protection, and will make a huge contribution to the people who live there, Wilkinson said.
The signing of the contract was preceded by a meeting between Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic and representatives of Behtel Enka, a strategic partner for the project, which was selected by the Government of Serbia following a public call.
The Morava corridor, namely the Pojate-Preljina highway, will be 112.3 km long and will connect central Serbia, south and west, as well as corridors 10 and 11.
