150 kmph to soon become new highway speed limit: Police and Roads of Serbia reach deal
The reason for considering this decision is the opening of the last section on Corridor 10's eastern arm
Drivers in Serbia will soon be allowed speeds of up to 150 kilometers per hour on all highways in the country, Zoran Drobnjak, director of the public company Roads of Serbia (Putevi Srbije), has told the daily Blic.
As Drobnjak confirmed for Blic, he agreed with the police to implement this rule soon.
"The only thing left is to finalize the agreements, so that on all highways the speed limit can be increased to 150 kilometers per hour, so that this limit is harmonized with European standards," explained Drobnjak.
The reason for considering this decision is the opening of the last section on Corridor 10's eastern arm.
As for the amenities on the eastern arm of Corridor 10, which will open to traffic on Saturday - such as gas stations, hotels and restaurants - Drobnjak explains that citizens will still have to wait a while.
As he explained, after the opening, bidding will be organized to lease land plots and then build these facilities.
After almost nine years, the eastern arm of Corridor 10 has been completely built, and will be officially opened for traffic tomorrow in the total length of 86.9 kilometers. The ceremony will be attended by Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic and Bulgarian Prime Minister Boyko Borisov.
