Concept design for construction of the Corridor X section from Bitola to Lerin has been completed, announced the Macedonian Ministry of Transport. The project was devised by the state-owned company Macedonian Railways, and the next step is the choice of a consultant who will conduct necessary surveys and the main construction project.
"A tender for preparation of necessary documents is expected to be invited in June, whereas the mentioned railroad section Bitola-Lerin will be completed in 2014.
We applied for means from EU pre-accession funds (IPA) in order to obtain financial means necessary for the project," informed the Ministry. Moreover, this is an international railroad which will be some 20 km long.
