Minister of Construction, Transport and Infrastructure Zorana Mihajlovic has signed a commercial agreement with the representatives of the Bechtel-Enka consortium on the construction of the 112-km-long Moravian Corridor on the section of Pojate-Preljina. The highway will connect Corridor 10 and Milos the Great highway, an area of about 500,000 people, namely the towns of Cacak, Kraljevo, Vrnjacka Banja, Trstenik, Krusevac, Stalac and Cicevac. In addition to the construction of the highway, the project also includes the regulation of the West Morava and its tributaries, as well as the construction of telecommunications infrastructure. The only bid at the public tender for a strategic partner for the construction of the Moravian Corridor was submitted by the consortium of US and Turkish company Bechtel-Enka. The commercial agreement stipulates that the cost of the construction of 112.3 kilometers of the highway is EUR 745m and additional works and direct and indirect materials will cost 20 percent more. The agreement stipulates that in two years Krusevac will be connected to Corridor 10 by the highway, in less than three years Kraljevo and Cacak will be connected with Milos the Great Highway and the entire project will be completed in four years. The Pojate-Preljina highway will consist of three sections: Pojate-Krusevac (27.83 kilometers), Krusevac-Adrani (53.88 kilometers) and Adrani-Preljina (30.66 kilometers). The maximum allowed speed on that road will be 130 kilometers per hour, it will have 11 loops and 130 other structures, of which 71 are bridges, 23 overpasses, five underpasses and 31 culverts.
