Currently, works are being executed on the designed length of 66,800 meters.

“The City of Novi Sad is among the municipalities which have been incorporated into the ‘Clean Serbia’ Project and it is the largest separate project of municipal investment in our city. Financial means provided by the project allow for a launch of a greater investment cycle, followed by a larger number of public investments in Novi Sad…” said about the project the Mayor of Novi Sad, Milos Vucevic

By realizing this project, we are protecting the river Danube, the waters of which are used to supply the citizens, to irrigate the land, as well as an industry resource. By its importance, it is at the very top regarding the rivers of Europe.
