The beginning of breaking through the tunnel with two pipes of 3.5 and 3.6 kilometers that will go to the southern slopes of Fruška gora near Irig, unofficially, expected in the spring. Allegedly, certain contracts on expropriation are awaited, and currently to the workers difficulties are created by weather conditions and consequent landslides. Thus, in front of the future tunnel, there is now mostly mud and nylon tarpaulins, which should prevent the landslide.

At the beginning of the month, the director of the Corridor of Serbia, Aleksandar Antic, stated that two rows of piles 1.5 meters in diameter and up to 25 meters deep were being destroyed, for the needs of the retaining wall above the future entrances to the tunnel. He added that the construction of the Corridor will also depend on the speed of works on the future bridge over the Danube near Tekija of 1.8 kilometers.

Recently, the head of the CRBC project, Milijan Milić, stated for some media that they are trying to prevent all potential difficulties, and to work with strict nature protection measures.

– We have a Novoselski stream that needs to be regulated by his entire company in the area of ​​the entrance portal. Also, we have a lot of natural watercourses that need to be received in this zone of the entrance portal and safely regulated in the canals themselves – stated Milić.

The Fruška Gora corridor will be a fast road that will connect Novi Sad with Ruma and the future Ruma-Šabac highway and the Sabac-Loznica highway with Kać, across the Danube and Petrovaradin, along Paragovo, below Fruška gora.

Sam The Fruska Gora corridor will be 47.7 kilometers long and will have four lanes, and a tunnel and a bridge will connect Bačka and Srem with western Serbia. The state signed a construction contract with China Road and Bridge Construction (CRBC) worth 606m euros, and at the start of work, President Aleksandar Vucic said he had received assurances from contractors that the Fruska Gora corridor would be completed a year ahead of schedule, in March 2024.

Although the current construction site looks rather apocalyptic, considering the number of fallen trees and the appearance of the mentioned Novoselski potok, the President of Serbia said on May 1 that it had been achieved. agreement with CRBC to plant two seedlings for each tree cut down.

The Frushkogorski corridor, in addition to protecting the National Park from freight and other motor traffic, should do the same with Novi Sad. On the territory of the city, this road will serve as a transit for trucks, which would then cross the Danube on the future bridge on Tekija, and from there it would erupt through the tunnel to Alibegovac, then to Mišeluk and further to Venac and Irig. The bridge on Tekija will also be connected with the bypass around Petrovaradin, which should go next to “Pobeda” and which leads to the new road-railway bridge.
