Basic  project  data

Project ID: PA1A021
 

Need  and  added  value  for  the  Danube  Region  Strategy

Critical sections on the Danube River in Serbia are identified in the Master Plan for IWW Transport in Serbia (2006). On those sections fairway parameters are not established in accordance with Danube Commission Recommendations. River training works are needed in order to achieve fairway parameters which would improve navigation conditions in terms of safety. The elimination of critical sections will contribute to the improvement of mobility on the Danube River and the entire Pan-European Transport Corridor VII.

Objective(s)  of  the  project

Necessary designs and tender documentation for river training works on six critical sections on the Danube River in Serbia were elaborated, in order to start river training works and improve navigation safety conditions.

Conducted  project  activities

  1. Preparation of Pre-feasibility study and general designs for all critical sectors on the Danube River from Bezdan to Belgrade
  2. Preparation of Feasibility study and conceptual designs for all critical sectors on the Danube River from Backa Palanka to Belgrade
  3. Preparation of EIA Study
  4. Preparation of main designs and tender documentation for six selected critical sectors on the Danube River from Backa Palanka to Belgrade
  5. Construction permit

Transboundary  impact

The project was focused on the stretch of the Danube River between Backa Palanka and Belgrade, not targeting the joint stretch of the river.

Some critical sectors are located at the Serbian-Croatian joint stretch of the Danube river. Cooperation between the two administrations is needed regarding environmental impact in cross-border areas (both countries signed the ESPO convention). Cooperation is also needed in terms of achieving common technical solutions for designs for critical sections located in the joint section.
This cooperation will be executed within the Commission for implementation of Serbian-Croatian Bilateral Agreement on Navigation (signed in 2009).

Project  beneficiaries  /  target  groups

Main beneficiaries of the project are the Ministry of Construction, Transport and Infrastructure, and MCTI - Directorate for Inland Waterways (Plovput).

Other  Relevant  Issues

Project  requirements

Collection of relevant hydrographic surveying data together with hydrological data was needed, in order to prepare hydraulic model. All data was collected and hydraulic and morphological models were prepared, as well as alternative options and conceptual designs for 6 critical sectors between Backa Palanka and Belgrade.

Follow - up  project

The follow-up project is currently being implemented (see Project Environment above). It will entail the execution of River Training Works on six critical locations for which main designs and tender documentation were prepared. Objective of the project is the elimination of critical sections, which will contribute to the improvement of mobility on the Danube River. The value of this project is about EUR 14,100,000 (including contracts for works and contract for supervision and environmental monitoring). Source of funding is the EU IPA 2013 programme.
