The Minister of Construction Tomislav Momirovic has visited the works on the location of Brdjanska Street in Kragujevac, as part of the “Clean Serbia” Project.
The works in the Brdjanska Street are going to be carried out in the length of 2,270m, and so far 214m of sewage network has been constructed. However, as the Minister has pointed out, the works in this street are not the only active site.
“Apart from the construction site in Belosevac, we have initiated works on three more locations in Kragujevac. We are building some 50 or so km of sewage network in the first phase, and the plan is to build 360 km of brand-new sewage network and address a huge environmental problem in Kragujevac. We want it to be a city of contemporary infrastructure and to connect the vast majority of citizens to a sewage network, and after that to build wastewater treatment plants in order to raise the environmental standard in Kragujevac up to the one of Western Europe”, says the Minister.
Mayor of Kragujevac, Nikola Dasic has stated that this Project will cover every home, every household in the city and its vicinity so the problem of so called wild connections which do not end up in collectors of the Public Utility Company „Vodovod i kanalizacija”, but in water streams. That is why the citizens are able to pay off a legal connection to the new sewage network in 30 equal monthly installments.
In Kragujevac, as it is planned by the Project, the construction of 3,808.5 m of sewage network is under way while the works in the Municipality of Knic are being carried out in the length of 1,711.83m.
