Vesić reminded that it was this business started two years agowhen the construction of an overpass was agreed with the Municipality of Zemun, which was not foreseen during the construction of the railway.

– In two years, we managed to provide money and realize the project, and in a few months, citizens will be able to use this overpass. 40,000 citizens live here, and without this overpass, their journey between this part of Batajnica and the settlement of Shanghai would be longer. In this way, we really make the quality of life easier and better for the citizens of this settlement, and we also protect lives because there will be no more crossings on the railway where fast trains go. The city has set aside 755 million dinars, and there will be additional works and payments, but in any case, this is it one of the most important investments which we conducted – said the deputy mayor.

He announced that he would the overpass will be completed at the end of May, and released for light traffic at the end of Junereports Beoinfo.

By the end of September, the complete traffic will be released and the overpass will be in full function. That way, people who live here will have a fast train and a crossing over the railway, which has been a problem for decades – said Vesić.

Speaking about the projects in the Batajnica settlement, Gavrilo Kovacevic said that there are two projects, and one of them is the construction of a new ambulance in the center of the settlement, the design of which is in progress. Work should begin later this year or early next year.

– Also, through the Directorate for Construction Land a few years ago 12 hectares were purchased for the construction of a new cemetery in Batajnica. At the moment, an urban project is being done, and the realization of that project will create conditions for the construction project. I expect that at the end of this or the beginning of next year, that cemetery and the access road will be in function so that citizens have the opportunity to bury their loved ones in their neighborhood. The municipality, through the Secretariat for Investments, launched an initiative to design several streets, primarily Vojvodina Brigade Street and a street located in the center of the settlement, in order to give Batajnica much more functional traffic – Kovacevic concluded.
