First rail traffic on Zezelj bridge in Novi Sad, Serbia

(07/05/2018)   

The Zezelj is a mixed bridge for rail and road. 474 metres in length and with a width of 31.8 metres, it will also provide service to two lanes for cyclists and pedestrians. The bridge stands out among the ones with the greatest span in the world in its typology of double arch with suspended floor for mixed traffic of rail and road vehicles.

Likewise, its two arches are the longest of their typology in Europe and some of the biggest and heaviest to be launched using this technology.

The Zezelj bridge is crucial for the development of rail passenger and freight traffic on the Belgrade-Novi Sad-Subotica-border with Hungary line in its connection with Budapest and the south of the Balkan Peninsula.
