The construction of the Intermodal Terminal in Batajnica, in urban neighbourhood of the capital Belgrade, is approaching completion.


Goran Vesić, the Minister of Construction, Transport and Infrastructure, and Oliver Varhelyi, the EU Commissioner for Neighbourhood Policy and Enlargement, visited the site to inspect the final stages of work, Logistika.biz, a Railmarket News Serbian media partner reports.  

The Batajnica Intermodal Terminal, spanning 82 hectares between the Batajnica railway station and the E75 motorway, is designed to facilitate the transport of unified cargo loaded on intermodal transport units. This enables the cargo to switch from one mode of transport to another seamlessly. The terminal structure allows for future expansion as trade volumes increase.

The terminal's design includes two container transshipment tracks, an additional track, roads for truck access, a container storage area, a customs warehouse, and other supporting facilities. Trains from various parts of the country and European centers will arrive at the terminal, bringing containers that will be transshipped, stored, and then transported by truck to final destinations within a radius of about one hundred kilometers.

The EU provided 13.8 million euros in grants for the construction of the terminal, with the Republic of Serbia contributing the remaining 1.7 million euros. The facility is expected to become a primary hub, with potential new routes leading north towards Novi Sad and Subotica, and south towards Niš, as well as possible expansions towards other ports like the Port of Bar.
