By the end of the year, the contractor will select a contractor for the reconstruction of the railway from Stalac to Junis. This will officially start the construction of the high-speed railway from Belgrade to Nis, which will be able to reach between these cities in two hours and 15 minutes. The railway from Stalac to Junis is the only one-track, on the entire route from Belgrade to Nis. That’s why it will build another 17-kilometer track and a 3.2-kilometer tunnel. This will allow speeds of up to 160 kilometers per hour.
