An EU-funded project that is part of the modernisation of the Salzburg-Belgrade-Thessaloniki railway axis.

Italferr has been awarded, in a grouping with its subsidiary IES and Signalling Solutions, Trioprojeckt and Kosovoprojekt, the tender called by the Ministry of Finance of the Republic of Serbia for the modernisation of approximately 24 km of railway line between Niš station and Brestovac station, an integral part of Corridor No. 10 of the TEN-T trans-European network. The assignment includes works supervision, design review, and control of the Technical Specifications for Interoperability for the rehabilitation, reconstruction, and electrification of the line, including work on the signalling system.

This upgrade will allow the transit of trains at 120 km/h (up from the current 90) as well as an increase in transportable cargo for freight trains. Travel times for passenger and freight trains will be reduced, contributing to the increase in overall transport volumes between southern and central Europe. The capacity, safety and reliability of the railway line will thus be improved, as well as the quality of transport service.

The European Union-funded project is currently under way.
