|Overall project objective:
The project aims to improve the level of service and traffic safety by upgrading the existing road to motorway standard and constructing a new highway section with all service facilities. The Ministry of Infrastructure started financing other Road Route 4 sections – Ub-Lajkovac, length 12,5 km, budget investment of 64 million euro and the section Lig-Preljina, length 40,36 km for an investment cost of 308 million euro (Azerbaijan Government contract).
Together with the implementation of the project for Road Route 4 motorway construction in Montenegro, this project will provide improved connectivity between Serbia and Montenegro and facilitate connections from Belgrade to the port of Bar in Montenegro. Expected benefits are reduced VOC, travel times and accident costs.
