Later, we will see to make a fast road to Novi Pazar, Vučić added.
He pointed out that the most difficult part of the work on the first section was done on the Moravian Corridor and that everything is done on the first sector.

He also announced that a fast road from Kragujevac to Mrcajevac would be built, as well as that industrial zones would be built between Krusevac and Trstenik, but also between Kraljevo and Cacak, for several large factories, which would employ people in western Pomoravlje.
“This will be the widest highway and completely digitalized,” Vucic pointed out.

“Let’s just build another cosmodrome in Krusevac”
When asked how he sees Serbia in four years, when all current projects are completed and what he can say about the Belgrade-Timisoara highway project, Vučić answered:
“Toma (Momirović) goes and announces, or when he asks. It is a fantastic project, but he has not yet said where he found the money. I guess he told Siniša Mali that it is important. And since he is a minister in the government, we cannot we will give up and build “, stated Vučić.
He stated that Banat will be extraordinarily connected, and added that the project of the Belgrade-Zrenjanin highway is still underway.
Vučić said that with the completion of the bypass around Kragujevac and the connection with Corridor 11, the whole of Serbia will be networked.
He reminded that the Danube highway is being built, that the highway to Vrsac will additionally contribute to the development of Pancevo, which, he says, is the city of the future and which will grow the fastest due to the industrial zone and the quality of the factories that came.
Vučić said that this will be the best highway that connects the entire Moravian part with Belgrade, Niš and western Serbia.
Motorway to “tri Morave”
