Construction of New Žeželj Bridge in Novi Sad (Žeželj Bridge)
Start date: Feb 28, 2011, End date: Dec 30, 2015 PROJECT  FINISHED 

Construction of a new road and rail bridge across the Danube at Novi Sad instead of the provisional Žeželj bridge which was destroyed during the 1999 NATObombings. The temporary bridge has low height (6.82 m at highest navigable water level) and insufficient fairway width. Construction of the new bridge started in April2012.The construction of the rail/road bridge across the Danube in Novi Sad is recognized as one of the priority projects in the Master Plan for IWW Transport in Serbia (2006).The current temporary bridge does not comply with the required standards of the Danube Commission and EU standards. The new bridge (within the European Transport Corridor VII) will be reconstructed at the same location using the same foundation of the bombed bridge (1999).Objectives• Integration into the European Railway Transport Network (Railway Corridor X), efficient and improved railway connection which will result in increased interoperability between Balkan area and EU, using EU standards.• Elimination of the bottleneck on the European Transport Corridor VII (Danube), as the temporary bridge represents an obstacle for navigation (limited heights at high water levels, limited fairway width due to curve radius)
