Minister marked the commencement of works: Serbia getting yet another airport
The Minister of Construction, Transport and Infrastructure, Tomislav Momirovic has symbolically marked the beginning of construction works on the runway, signalization, taxiways and accompanying facilities at the „Rosulje“ airport in Krusevac today.
A new airport will have two runways with a length of 1,300 and 800 meters respectively, and it will be possible to accept aircrafts with a wingspan of 12 to 24 meters, the ministry announced.
„By building the „Rosulje“ airport and moving it from the existing location, we are tackling the necessity of an airport near Krusevac, while on the other hand, the greater value for Krusevac and this entire region is that by removing the old airport we are freeing a very attractive land in the industrial zone for the arrival of new companies“, Momirovic has said.
According to him, the location of an old airport was not favourable for the development of the industrial zone in Krusevac.
„Now we get an additional land for the construction of new plants, while the construction of a new airport „Rosulje“ will enable faster access to domestic and foreign investors and their companies that they opened in the Rasina region. The project for the development of this airport and other airports across Serbia shows correctness of the policy of the Serbian government to pay special attention to investments in smaller airports, which will enable the accelerated development of air traffic in our country,“ Minister Momirovic has said.
