Reinstalling Serbia – Hungary rail link
The government of Serbia, Serbian Railways Infrastructure and a consortium comprising Karin Komerc and RZD International have signed a contract for the reconstruction and modernisation of the railway line leading from Horgos (Serbia) via Subotica to the Hungarian state frontier, covering more than 26 km.
The works will take no more than 14 months from the start of construction. Before commissioning, the facilities will undergo pre-launch tests. The cost of the contract is EUR 105 million.
The Horgos - Subotica line was last renovated over 20 years ago. Currently, only a few sections are in operation. The new railway will be electrified and designed for freight and passenger trains with a maximum speed of 120 km/h. (ben)
