Visiting the section of Corridor 10 from Vladicin Han to Donji Neradovac in southern Serbia, Mihajlovic told reporters that 60 percent of the work has already been completed and that the works by Greek company Terna are being conducted according to the planned deadlines.

She noted that the funds for the construction of the last eight kilometers of Corridor 10 would be ensured within a month.

In the course of the last year, 58 kilometers of the road were paved, and another 120 kilometers should be paved this year, of which 70kilometers would be used as highway, Mihajlovic said to mark the first anniversary of the government mandate.

She underscored that construction works in Serbia have intensified by ten times on average in the past year compared to the period of past ten years, and added that this trend needs to persist so that Serbia could become an important transit country.
