Project ID: PA1A129
 

Need  and  added  value  for  the  Danube  Region  Strategy

Six critical sectors along the Serbian stretch of the Danube constitute an obstacle to navigation during low water periods. The removal of the bottlenecks will strengthen the competitiveness of the Danube as a mode of transport.

OBJeCTIVE(S)  oF  the  PROJECT

The purpose of this project is to execute river training structures and dredging works at six critical locations along the Serbian sector of the Danube between Backa Palanka and Belgrade (rkm 1287 to rkm 1195) in order to improve the navigation conditions during low water periods.
The works have to be executed within a construction period of three years.

The objective of Environmental Monitoring and Supervision is to provide technical assistance services during the river training and dredging works on critical sections along the Serbian stretch of the Danube. The service contractor will undertake the role of the engineer as specified in the FIDIC conditions of contract (Conditions of Contract for Construction for Building and Engineering Works Designed by Employer) and assist the Contracting Authority with coordination, supervision and project as well as site management.                                                                   

PLANNED  project  activities

The project is being implemented through the realisation of two contracts:

1. Hydro-technical and dredging works on the critical sectors on the Danube River

  • Dredging and the construction of one detached groyne
  • Construction of three bottom sills
  • Construction of three chevrons

2. Supervision and environmental monitoring of hydro-technical and dredging works on the critical sectors on the Danube River   

  • supervision of river training and dredging works, potential implementation of compensation measures
  • environmental monitoring before, during and after execution of works: monitoring and evaluation of the effects of river training and dredging works on the environment and proposal of compensation measures

Transboundary  impact

The whole inland navigation sector in the Danube Region will benefit from the planned measures. Resolved bottlenecks in one sector of the Danube have a positive impact on all Danube riparian states involved in inland navigation.

Project  beneficiaries  /  target  groups

The users of the waterway are the main beneficiaries of the project.
