Minister of Transport and Communications Blagoj Bocvarski expects a contractor to be selected for the first two sections of the railroad to Bulgaria in the first quarter of next year.

He says that its construction is in the focus of the Government, and that 1 billion and 800 million denars are projected for the railroad to Bulgaria in the 2021 budget of the Ministry of Transport.

Next year we will issue the tender for construction of the two phases, the first from Kumanovo to Beljakovce for the remaining part that remained unfinished and the second phase from Beljakovce to Kriva Palanka. The procedure for selection of a contractor for both sections will take place in one tender. We will also continue to maintain the railway infrastructure on Corridor 10, said Bocvarski.
