Tracks to be purchased for reconstruction of tram system

29 Jul 2006

Tracks for the complete reconstruction of the tram system in Belgrade will be purchased at a cost 720 million Dinars. The complete amount of tracks for all the planned lines will be ordered using a tender procedure.

The tracks will be purchased in this way because there are very few manufacturers in Europe that can produce and deliver such a large amount of tracks. The city decided to make one big order for these tracks because they do not want to wait too long and want to benefit from a larger discount. The tracks will be installed along a total length of 20 kilometers and the purchase will be financed by a loan from the European Investment Bank. 370 million Dinars will come from the loan for the year 2006, while the remaining 350 million Dinars will come from the 2007 loan year.

The construction works in Savska Street are proceeding according to the planned schedule and the end of the reconstruction of this tram line is planned for the end of August or the beginning of September. Following the completion of this section of tram line, the reconstruction of the section from the Veterinary Faculty to Autokomanda will begin. The city is currently deciding on the company that will be given the job for this reconstruction.

The project also plans for the reconstruction of the tram tracks in Resavskoj ulici as well as the sections from Gospodarske mehane to Požeške, Autokomandna to Banjice, Vukovog spomenika to Omladinskog stadiona, Cara Dušana to Pristanište, and Topčiderski park to Kneževac.
Nabavka šina za kompletnu rekonstrukciju tramvajskih deonica, koja je planirana prema projektu „Obnova Beograda”, koštaće grad 720 miliona dinara. Kompletna količina šina za sve predviđene deonice biće nabavljena u posebnoj tenderskoj proceduri, rekla je na današnjoj konferenciji za novinare zamenica gradonačelnika Radmila Hrustanović.

– Razlozi za to su najpre što u Evropi postoji veoma mali broj fabrika koji mogu da isporuče ovoliku količinu šina, pa smo odlučili da nabavka bude jedinstvena kako ne bismo mnogo čekali, kao i da bismo dobili što povoljniju cenu. Šine će biti postavljene na ukupnoj dužini od 20 kilometara. Nabavka se finansira sredstvima iz zajma Evropske investicione banke za 2006. godinu u iznosu od 370 miliona dinara, a preostali deo od 350 miliona dinara iz zajma za 2007. godinu – rekla je Radmila Hrustanović.

Radovi u Savskoj ulici teku prema utvrđenoj dinamici, a završetak rekonstrukcije ove tramvajske deonice planiran je krajem avgusta i početkom septembra. Po okončanju ovog posla predstoji rekonstrukcija deonice od Veterinarskog fakulteta do Autokomande, a trenutno je u toku izbor izvođača za ovaj posao, rekla je Radmila Hrustanović.

Projektom „Obnove Beograda” planirana je i rekonstrukcija tramvajskih pruga u Resavskoj ulici, zatim na deonicama od Gospodarske mehane do Požeške, od Autokomande do Banjice, od Vukovog spomenika do Omladinskog stadiona, od Cara Dušana do Pristaništa i od Topčiderskog parka do Kneževca.
