After signing the Agreement on determining the details for connecting the Belgrade - Vatin (Serbia) motorway and the Timisoara - Moravica (Romania) motorway, Momirovic underlined that the roads build even stronger friendships and provide a better quality of life.
He pointed out that with the construction of a new modern motorway from Belgrade to Timisoara, these two cities will be only an hour's drive away, adding that this is a strategically important corridor for both countries.
Grindeanu said that feasibility studies for the construction of the motorway, for which there has been an initiative since 2016, will be completed in the fall and that it is expected that a decision will be made next year on who will build this road, with the support of European funding.
The contracting parties will establish a connection between the two countries by directly connecting the Belgrade-Vatin motorway (state border), which will be 65 kilometres long on the Serbian side, and the Timisoara-Moravica motorway (state border), approximately 78 kilometres long, on the Romanian side.
The two motorways will cross the common state border and connect with each other, respecting the characteristics that ensure the safety and security of road traffic.
