Future Serbian Engineers Learn at Railway Construction Sites of Russian Company
On Saturday, November 3, students of the Belgrade Architecture technical school visited RZD International construction site on the Stara Pazova – Novi Sad section, Belgrade – Budapest railway line.

27 students went to the largest railway construction site in Serbia and inspected the Chortanovci tunnel and the viaduct in the floodplain of the Danube river, where the works are carried out by the Russian company. Railway personnel showed their guests technical solutions, equipment and technologies used for construction, and answered the students' questions.

First deputy director of RZD International branch office Mansurbek Sultanov said: “I'm glad that we could share a piece of our experience with the future generation of engineers. Maybe some of them will tie up their careers with railways and personally, I think it would be the right choice.”

The main works on the Chortanovci tunnel started in March 2018. Construction of this unique to Serbia structure is carried out ahead of schedule and to date 500 meters are already completed. The total length of the two bores of the tunnel is about 2.2 km.

Concurrently the installation of the piers is under way on the double-track 3 km-long viaduct in the floodplain of the Danube river and in the nearest future the Company will begin construction of the first bridge span.

The place for the Architecture technical school students’ excursion was not chosen by accident. The work of RZD International in Serbia traditionally gets positive feedback from the Government of the country. For example, in the beginning of October during the meeting with the First Deputy Chief Executive Officer of JSC Russian Railways Alexander Misharin, Deputy Prime Minister, Minister of Construction, Transport and Infrastructure of Serbia Zorana Mihajlović evaluated the construction site of the Company and noted that it "looks really impressive".
