In March 2012 the signing of the General Agreement on the Implementation of Projects in the Field of Railway Transport in the Republic of Serbia had taken place. The scope of works includes elaboration of design and estimate documentation, as well as conducting of construction works in several sections of Serbian Railways with the total length of about 400 km. In order to meet requirements of the Project, in 2013 the Russian Remputmash Group has manufactured 103 units of track machinery and equipment in accordance with European standards, which the Project has to comply with.

On March 25, 2014 construction works under the Contract were launched. Construction of a modern railway infrastructure that meets the latest safety requirements, increasing train speed from 30 to 120 km/h and to 200 km/h in some sections are the ultimate goals of the project.

The total amount of the Contract is $941 million, including $800 million raised from state export credit provided to the Government of the Republic of Serbia by the Government of the Russian Federation.
