The contract on development of the project for land property re-allotment for the railway bypass was signed at Nis City Hall by the director of company Geodata DOO PGJ Obrenovac Djordje Jankovic and by Ivan Jocic on the behalf of Nis Directorate for City Land Development. The first part of the work in connection with the relocation of the railway should be completed by the end of 2018, and the relocation of a length of 22 kilometers will cost 1 billion and 14 million dinars. The costs would be covered by the Republic of Serbia.
“We have been talking about the relocation of the railway from the city center for decades. Many political campaigns were based on this story. So many times the people from Railway Serbia Company came and talked. Today we are allocating 15 million dinars from the city budget for this project since the land property re-allotment is the first step in the realization of this most important project for our city. By the end of 2018 the construction of the bypass should begin, “said Mayor Bulatovic on the occasion of signing of the contract.
Project coordinator Ljubivoje Slavković said that most of the work would be about preparing the land. He pointed out that even 34 hectares of land were belonging to private individuals and should be transferred.
