“No more traffic jams through Cacak”: New section of Corridor 11 is opened
The section of the highway “Milos the Great” from Preljina near Cacak to Pakovrace, in the length of about 11.5 kilometres, is open for traffic.
Prime Minister Ana Brnabic, who attended the opening instead of President of Serbia, Aleksandar Vucic, was riding on the bus on the new highway.
With the opening of the section of the highway from Preljina to Pakovrace, the traffic jams that were created through Cacak, especially during the summer vacation season and on weekends, will become a thing of the past, because all transit traffic is redirected to the new bypass.
It is part of the 30.9-kilometer section of the Preljina-Pozega highway, where the main contractor is the Chinese company China Road and Bridge Corporation (CRBC).
The deadline for the completion of the works that began in May 2019 on the entire section to Pozega is 36 months, and their value is 450 million euros.
The Preljina-Pozega section is a continuation of the project for the construction of the Belgrade-South Adriatic highway with a total length of 258 kilometres. The Preljina-Pozega highway is divided into three smaller sections.
The highway from Preljina to Pozega is a regional road, because it is a continuation of Corridor 11 towards the border with Montenegro, but it is also part of the future Belgrade-Sarajevo highway, because the section in the length of about 60 kilometres remains to be built from Pozega to the border with BiH.
