TriGránit signs contract to build €170 mln railway station in Belgrade
Hungary's TriGránit Zrt signed a contract on Tuesday with Serbia's state-owned railway company Zeleznice Srbije to build a €170 million railway station in Belgrade, the government of Serbia announced.
TriGránit, which is one of the biggest construction companies in the region, will complete construction of Prokop station, started 30 years earlier but never completed.
TriGránit is currently building five other railway stations in Europe, which is a guarantee that the work will be properly done, said Serbian Minister of Capital Investments Velimir Ilic.
TriGránit executive director Todd Cowen said the general contract envisages that the company will complete the railway station and receive 128,000 square meters of office space at the station for its own use. Cowen said he expects the final contract to be signed by the end of September, when work on the station should begin. The construction, which will involve Serbian subcontractors, should be completed in two years, he said.
