The section of the Milos Veliki highway from Surcin to Obrenovac is open to traffic
The section of the Milos Veliki highway from Surcin to Obrenovac, in total length of 17.6 kilometres, has been opened, thus completing the highway from Belgrade to Cacak in total length of 120 kilometres. With completion of that part of the Milos Veliki highway, one will be able to travel from Belgrade to Cacak in about an hour. Construction of that highway began in March 2017 and cost EUR 208 million. “Putevi Srbije” is an investor in the project funded by a loan from the Exim Bank of China. The section from Surcin to Obrenovac is part of the Belgrade-South Adriatic motorway and connects Belgrade and Cacak in total length of 120 kilometres. It has four driving and two stop lanes, with a total width of 29 metres. It has a bridge at the mouth of the River Kolubara to the River Sava, as well as 11 additional bridges, a viaduct over the Ostruznica-Batajnica railway, and two loops – Surcin and Obrenovac. The bridge over the River Sava and the River Kolubara is 1,581 metres long and 29 metres wide. The Surcin loop connects the new highway route with the Belgrade bypass, or the future route from Novi Beograd to Surcin, and the Surcin loop connects corridors 10 and 11. Toll will not be charged on the highway Surcin-Obrenovac, even though this was stipulated by the project, and additional amendment is an exclusion point from the highway in Jakovo. The construction of a motorway in total length of 7.9 kilometres that will connect Novi Beograd and Surcin is planned in March 2020, as well as completion of a section from Cacak to Pozega on the route of Corridor 11 towards Montenegro, by the end of 2021.
