Creation of computerised national rail network management and maintenance system
In the capacity of leader of a grouping of companies, Italferr was engaged by the European Union’s representative office in Belgrade, on behalf of the Serbian Ministry of Infrastructure and Railways (SR), to develop a new computerised system (RMS – Railway Management System) for the management and maintenance of Serbia’s rail network.
The services included the completion of an aerial survey on the railway assets to build a database of the entire infrastructure existing on the Pan-European Corridor X, and the Serbian section of the Belgrade-Bar line; the project also included the proposal for a new organisation scheme and set of procedures for the introduction of a “smart” infrastructure diagnosis and maintenance system.
The last part of the project involved preparing the documentation required for the tender relating to the new diagnostics system, organising training courses for the local rail staff, both in Serbia and in Italy, with on-the-job training activities and providing regular assistance to the Contracting Authority and the beneficiaries, in the initial set-up stages of the new system.
Activities started in October 2010 and were completed in October 2013.

The new bridge over the Danube
Italferr was engaged to develop the preliminary and detailed design for the new Zezelj road/railway bridge spanning the Danube, in the city of Novi Sad. Its tasks also included preparing the tender documents for the construction contract.
The project was developed for the European Agency for Reconstruction (EAR).
Activities were completed in 2009.

National Transport Plan
As leader of a temporary grouping of international transport engineering companies, Italferr developed Serbia’s National Transport Plan on behalf of the European Agency for Reconstruction (EAR). The engagement included defining the development scenario for rail, road, airport and waterway infrastructure up to 2025 in Serbia, in view of the country’s pivotal position as a Balkan transport hub crossed by Corridors X (Germany/Austria to Greece/Turkey) and VII (the Danube) and by the Belgrade-Bar rail line.
Operations in Serbia included a study on transport supply and demand, an analysis of the existing infrastructure, the development of a traffic model, preparing a general transport plan, developing an investment plan for the infrastructure and maintenance sector, preparing tender documents for feasibility studies, and developing training programmes for Ministry of Infrastructure engineers.
Activities were completed in 2009.
