The traffic on the Belgrade – Bar International Railway was commenced due to the completion of works on the Resnik – Valjevo section by "RZD International"
A ceremony dedicated to the relaunch of railway operations on the Resnik – Valjevo section of the Belgrade – Bar railway line, was held in the framework of the First Vice President of Russian Railways Mr. Alexander Misharin’s visit to the Republic of Serbia at the Valjevo station today. The reconstruction has been going on by "RZD International" since July, 2016.

The ceremony was attended by the presence of Ms. Zorana Mihajlovic Minister of Construction, Transport and Infrastructure of Republic of Serbia, top-management of Serbian Railways and other honorable guests.

According to the design, the reconstruction of the Resnik – Valjevo section by "RZD International" included rehabilitation of the embankment and permanent way, reconstruction of 2 tunnels, 17 bridges as well as of the catenary system, signaling and telecommunications systems and of all infrastructure along the railway line, including 10 railway stations. All works have been completed on time, despite the unexpected suspension of works during the high tourist season.

Since commissioning, the Resnik – Valjevo line has never undergone rehabilitation. After reconstruction, the line will meet the highest safety standards with the maximum traffic speed of passenger trains increased up to 110 km/h.

The contractual price of the project, which is run under the Supplementary Agreement 4.1 to the Contract, signed between "RZD International" LLC and JSC "Infrastructure of Serbian Railways" in December 2015, is about 80 million US dollars.
