Mihajlovic: Difficult negotiations with Bechtel, as soon as the contract is signed, we are ready to start the works

Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Construction, Transport and Infrastructure, prof. Zorana Mihajlovic PhD, today visited the pedestrian bridge with the pipeline in Trstenik, whose construction solved the problem of water supply for 10,000 people, which will also serve as a pedestrian.

Mihajlovic congratulated the citizens of Trstenik on Municipality Day and handed the operating permit for the bridge to Mayor of Trstenik, Aleksandar Ciric.

“Serbian government is with Trstenik and we will work and invest not only in municipal infrastructure, but also in other areas. We will work together, we will be with you and achieve, I am convinced, new results,” Mihajlovic said, and reminded that more than four billion dinars were invested in the maintenance and reconstruction of roads in Rasina District.


She added that it is very important for the development of Trstenik that a new highway will be built through central Serbia, Moravian Corridor, which will connect Cacak, Kraljevo, Trstenik, Krusevac and other places in this part of Serbia. "This is important both for the better life of citizens and for creating conditions for economic development," she added.

Mayor of Trstenik, Aleksandar Ciric, thanked Deputy Prime Minister for his visit to Trstenik Municipality and pointed out that the new suspension bridge would be a new symbol of the city, but would also provide water supply for about 10,000 citizens in this municipality. He added that the municipality is also preparing for new projects in the field of wastewater collection and treatment worth more than € 10 million, which will be implemented in cooperation with the German development bank KfW, as well as the construction of a pedestrian bridge with a pipeline.


A total of € 715,000 has been invested in the construction of pedestrian bridge with a pipeline, and a total of € 3.4 million has been invested through programs implemented by the Ministry of Construction, Transport and Infrastructure with the German development bank KfW in the field of water infrastructure in Trstenik.
