Momirović in Mionica: Mionica first in Serbia to prepare documentation for eco Project „Clean Serbia“

Today, the Minister of Construction, Transport and Infrastructure, Tomislav Momirović, together with the President of the Municipality of Mionica, Boban Janković, visited the works on the rehabilitation of the sidewalks in Mionica. They also talked about the “Clean Serbia” Project, in which Mionica is included, and which plans the execution of works on the construction of wastewater treatment plants, sewage network and pumping stations.

– The president of the Municipality of Mionica, Boban Janković, with his team, leads the municipality brilliantly, and after the realization of the Project, he could be a role model for much larger local self-governments. Mionica was the first in Serbia to prepare all the necessary documentation and thus became part of the Environmental Project “Clean Serbia”. In Mionica and Banja Vrujci, we are building nearly 20 kilometers of new sewage network and two wastewater treatment plants. Together with the team of the Mayor, we want to further improve the quality of life of the residents of Mionica, but also to protect Banja Vrujci and improve its touristic potential. By building a fast road to Valjevo, we will additionally encourage the arrival of new factories and the opening of new jobs in the Kolubara district- said the Minister.

Janković has emphasized the importance of the Environmental Project “Clean Serbia” and added that the sewage system in Jasenje was completed, and that the construction of the main collector in Banja Vrujci is expected soon.

– In addition to protecting the nature of our beautiful Mionica from pollution, we will improve the lives of our residents. Mionica will be a successful local self-government in a successful and developed Serbia, built by President Aleksandar Vučić and the Government of Serbia – said Janković

The network of fecal sewage will include all settlements in the Municipality of Mionica that have not had sewage so far: Jasenje, Divčibarski put, Brežđanska, Kovačevića put, Tešanovića put, Kneza Grbovića krak, Kevića sokače, part of Aleksandar Obrenović, Dragojevića strana, Milan Stanišić, Obilaznica, Đurđevića sokak, Novakovići sokak, Pajići sokak, Rankovići sokak, Jevtovića sokak, Antonijevići sokak, Valjevski put, and in the next period, the construction of the sewage and collectors will begin in 4 settlements in Banja Vrujci: Piskavice, Višnje, Krstovo brdo and Ljiški put.

– The busiest streets in Mionica did not have sidewalks. We had to solve that problem. Pedestrian safety has been increased, and our town now looks better. In the previous year, we asphalted more than 50 kilometers of roads in the municipality, and in the last 7 years, about 100 km of roads in our municipality has been asphalted. We plan to continue at this pace – said Janković.

Momirović: Works to start soon in Valjevo

The Minister of Construction Tomislav Momirović said that “Clean Serbia” is the largest environmental investment project in the history of Serbia. “The town of Valjevo has become a priority,” the Minister said during a visit to Valjevo.

“For me personally, it is the most important project we are implementing. We don’t need highways, high-speed railways, salaries of a thousand EUR, if we don’t clean our rivers and leave them in such state for our children. The President of the Republic has recognized that and has given a clear signal that we must include these projects in complete projects implemented by the Government of the Republic of Serbia. “Our goal is to invest four billion EUR in the upcoming years, to build 7,000 kilometers of sewage infrastructure, more than 250 wastewater treatment plants and we will not give up on that project,” the Minister informed the public about the “Clean Serbia”Project.

He said that Valjevo is divided into several parts and that he expects that the works will start from March to June, first on the construction of the sewage infrastructure, and then on the construction of the wastewater treatment plant. The Project plans for almost 200 km of sewage network for Valjevo. The location where the works will first start, from what could be gathered, will be decided in cooperation with the local self-government.

“Environmental problems exist all over Serbia. First of all, as the Government, we have to solve the problems in Valjevo, Mionica, Ljig, Tutin and everywhere in Serbia. This includes the smallest cities as well as the big ones. We, as the Government, must first of all solve problems in places such as Valjevo, Mionica, Tutin. Ljig because we will very quickly start to work on the sewage infrastructure, and the wastewater treatment plant there. We will solve the problems in large rivers, such as the Danube, with European partners, but if we do not clean the Rivers Kolubara, Pek, Ibar, Tisa, no one will do that, and that is what will destroy the future of our children”, the Minister emphasized.

During his visit to Valjevo, the Minister especially emphasized that the town of Valjevo is a priority:

“Valjevo has become a priority, we will start the construction in several locations, we will start to build in the coming months and I am convinced that the sewage infrastructure will be completed in a year and a half, and wastewater treatment plants will be built in three years. In the long run, that will bring the greatest benefits for the residents of Valjevo, for future generations, and that is not a political topic and political propaganda, it is something that simply must be done”said the Minister.

Scientific and professional meeting of the “Clean Serbia” at Petnica research station

The Petnica research station hosted a two-day scientific and professional meeting of the “Clean Serbia”, at which representatives of more than 50 local self-government units, as the Minister of Construction, Transport and Infrastructure Tomislav Momirovic emphasized, presented the largest environmental project in Serbian history.

Speaking to the mayors and presidents of the municipalities involved in the “Clean Serbia” Project, Minister Momirović said that this, the largest environmental project in the history of our country, represents an investment worth over four billion EUR in municipal infrastructure. According to him, the plan is to build 7,000 kilometers of new sewage network and more than 250 factories for wastewater treatment in the next four years, and that this year alone the Government of Serbia plans to invest more than 400 million EUR for investments in municipal infrastructure.

“For me, these projects are projects of the highest personal priority.  Highways and an average salary of 1,000 EUR mean nothing if we do not leave our nature clean for our children. We simply have to do it. The policy of the President Aleksandar Vučić is very successful in economic growth and preservation of national interests, but I think it is a great thing that we decided to clean our nature and bring our rivers to the level of the rivers of the developed world of Western Europe. In the next four years we wish to bring our rivers to a level where we can, not literally, but almost completely safely take their waters for drinking without any consequences to the health” said the Minister Tomiclav Momirovic, specifying that the ” Clean Serbia ” Project is already being implemented in 30 local self-governments, and this year the planned works will begin in 20 more municipalities and cities across Serbia.

“I hope that in a few decades, when this project becomes a part of history, our children will be able to say that they are proud of what has been done and to say – it was a serious country,” concluded the Minister of Construction, Transport and Infrastructure Tomislav Momirovic.

In addition to the Minister, at the scientific and professional gathering, a professor at the Faculty of Technology and Metallurgy, Dr. Dragan Povrenović, also spoke about the preconditions at the local level for the realization of the Project. Miroslav Živković from China Road and Bridge Corporation, which is implementing the Project, spoke in the thematic unit “Wastewaters” about the planned technologies for wastewater treatment. Prof. Dr. Sanja Milenković from the Faculty of Medicine spoke on the topic of health aspects related to the consequences of not treating wastewaters, Prof. Dr. Miloš Stanić from the Faculty of Civil Engineering spoke about the state of the sewage infrastructure, and Nenad Radojević from the Ministry of Environmental Protection talked about the management and treatment of waste sludge.

The second thematic unit of the scientific and professional gathering at the Petnica Research Station was dedicated to “Solid Municipal Waste” and the concept of its further management, which was discussed by Gorica Aleksić Milosavljević, MA (CIP Institute), Prof. Dr Željko Kamberović (Faculty of Technology and Metallurgy), Mr. Momir Milovanović (RD Duboko-Užice), Žarko Kovač (CRBC) and Prof. Dr. Gordana Stefanović (Faculty of Mechanical Engineering).

In the continuation of the meeting, a round table was organized during which discussions were held on the directions of further development in the field of wastewaters and in the field of municipal solid waste management. Tomorrow, on the second day of the scientific-professional gathering “Clean Serbia”, it is planned to form an operational team to monitor the Project and adopt conclusions.

Works began in Kučevo

The works on the implementation of the  “Clean Serbia” Project have started in Kučevo. The total length of the sewage network that will be worked on is 25,142.10 meters.

The construction of the Wastewater Treatment Plant will cover 4,000 residents. In order to preserve nature, the rivers Pek and Rabrovski potok the following will be built: WWTP 1 Kučevo1 PE-3.000, WWTP 2 Rabrovo PE-1.000. The construction of the sewage network will include the following settlements, villages and parts of the municipality: Kučevo – 17,428.50 m, Rabrovo – 7,713.60 m.

The beginning of the works in Kučevo was attended by the Minister of Construction Tomislav Momirović, who emphasized that it is the duty of this generation to solve the environmental problems. “In the next twelve to eighteen months, we will complete most of this Project. This is part of a large wave of investment in municipal infrastructure in order to make our rivers clean and raise environmental standards to the level of Western Europe. The President of Serbia, Aleksandar Vučić, has opened the topic and we must observe these environmental problems at the national level, and that is how we must solve them. The  River Pek must be clean for the future of this region, because it is our duty to leave a more beautiful and better Serbia to future generations. It is rude that some people use environmental issues to pick up cheap political points. It is the duty of this generation to solve the problem, “said the Minister.

The total value of the Project in the Municipality of Kučevo is 11,203,113 EUR, and the contractor is the Chinese company China Road and Bridge Corporation (CRBC).

Momirović for the RTK: two more locations in Kragujevac in the upcoming months

The Minister of Construction, Transport and Infrastructure, Tomislav Momirović, stated for RTV Kragujevac that new construction sites are expected within the scope of the “Clean Serbia” Project.

“The state has realized that it cannot leave local self-governments to build municipal infrastructure in which they have not invested for decades, because that would take too long. That is why the construction of municipal infrastructure has already started in about twenty local self-governments. “Only in Kragujevac, at this moment, construction is being done on three locations,” the Minister spoke for the Radio-Television Kragujevac.

He stated that the plan is to open two more locations in the upcoming months. “Our goal is to complete 350 km of sewage network in Kragujevac in the next three years, which would double the sewage network, to build a wastewater treatment plant, to purify all the wastewater that now flows directly into the rivers, and it seems to me that there should be no dispute on that topic, ” the Minister told the RTK.

The implementation of the “Clean Serbia” Project in Kragujevac began on November 19, 2021. The Project is being implemented in several phases.

RTV Subotica: “Clean Serbia” brings 110 km of sewage and two purifiers to Subotica

The last preparatory works for the “Clean Serbia” Project are underway, thanks to which the town of Subotica will get 110 kilometers of sewage network, but also two new purifiers in the settlements of Čantavir and Bajmok. The signing of the contract with the Relevant Ministry is expected by the middle of the year, after which works on the implementation of the Project will follow, which should solve the decades-long problem of the residents of Subotica.

The “Clean Serbia” Project should bring 110 new kilometers of sewage network to our town, 50 kilometers in the town itself and another 60 in the suburban local communities. The expansion of the network in the length of 10 kilometers is planned for the settlement of Palić, while Čantavir and Bajmok will get 25 kilometers each, where the wastewater treatment plants will also be constructed.

As this infrastructural investment solves the decades-long problem of the residents of many parts of the town when writing the project, the complaints of the citizens were taken into account, so the sewage reaches almost evenly in all local communities.

The local self-government is currently working on obtaining all the necessary documents, resolving property and legal relations for the plots on which the purifiers will be built, so that everything is ready for the beginning of the construction of the sewage network until the final signing of the contract.

Subotica is just one of the local self-governments in which the national Project “Clean Serbia” will be implemented. It is an investment of about four billion EUR, thanks to which about 7,000 kilometers of sewage network and more than 250 wastewater treatment plants will be constructed.

“Clean Serbia” project among key projects of Vranje

The construction of the sewage network will cover the following settlements, villages and parts of the town of Vranje: Town zone in Vranje – 4,443.00 m, Villages Ribnica, Donji Neradovac – 14,440.00 m, villages: Gornji Neradovac, Stropsko and Dubnica – 14,220.00 m, villages : Donji Pavlovac, Gornji Pavlovac, Katun, Beli Breg and Milivojce – 14,355.00 m, villages Rataje, Crni Lug, Aleksandrovac, Kupinince and Donje Trebešinje – 25,700.00 m, village Ristovac -2,660.00 m, villages Donji Vrtogoš and Davidovac – 7,525.00 m, villages Bunuševac and Soderce – 6,350.00 m, village Balinovac – 2,410.00 m, villages Ranutovac and Bresnica and Mečkovac – 7,310.00 m, village Moštanica – 3,430.00 m, village Ćukovac – 13,930.00 m, villages Zlatokop and Tibužde –4,454.00 m, Cadastral Municipalities Bunuševac –5,042.00 m Vranje – 15,399.00 m.

The implementation of the “Clean Serbia” Project in Vranje began on November 15, 2021.

A new sewage network in the length of 142 kilometers will be built on the territory of the Town of Vranje.

The value of the investment is 70 million EUR and it is one of the largest investments being realized in Vranje. The Project will cover all the villages of the Moravian basin, so that all wastewater will be directed to the Wastewater Treatment Plant.

The beginning of the works started in Kosovska Street and they are currently being executed on a section of 1,416.75 m. The works were stalled due to the existing atmospheric sewage system, which was located on the route of the designed sewage system, which required a change in the design, and 474.07 m has been built so far.

It is important to note that before the “Clean Serbia” Project, the biggest investment was the construction of the Prvonek Dam, which was built from 1987 to 2005, so it is understandable that the residents of Vranje are looking forward to the Project.
