Serbian PM Aleksandar Vučić and Belgrade Mayor Siniša Mali visited the construction site of Belgrade Waterfront last night. The Minister of Interior, Nebojša Stefanović, also took part in the visit.
’This was a surprise visit to the construction site of Belgrade Waterfront because we wanted to show progress is being made day after day, week after week, month after month. We’re working at full speed. There are many workers on the site even at night, so that results on the many buildings being constructed would be seen as soon as possible. The foundation is already being laid for the two apartment buildings, while the digging phase for the ’W’ hotel has also started. Also, the digging phase for the big tower has started, which means that work is already being done on all the facilities in the first stage. Also, work is being done on the Sava promenade, which will be several hundreds of meters long, and should be finished within several months,’ Siniša Mali said.
The Mayor said the Belgrade Waterfront project was the biggest project for the city of Belgrade.
’We want to show that work is in progress, ahead of schedule, and these domestic companies are a confirmation of how important this project is for us and how much it is driving the domestic industry, proving that Belgrade is the biggest construction site in this part of Europe. The Lasta station will be moved in the next few months. The big crane, at whose location two new apartment buildings will be built, will be moved by June, while in September we will start the construction of a big mall,’ the Mayor said.
He reminded that out of 256 families, the city of Belgrade had so far moved 239 families, having provided apartments for them.
’Also, 313 facilities have so far been removed from this area. This is a huge number that shows we are fully engaged in this. These are the projects that change Belgrade and Serbia and drive our construction industry. This is why we insist that these activities be carried out day and night, because we want to show that we can and have the capacity and will to change things in Serbia. This is an example for other construction sites and other cities, an example for everyone in the world, proving that we are a serious country that meets its obligations. When citizens walk along the promenade, they’ll have the chance to see for themselves how the work is progressing, because this is a great picture we haven’t had the chance of seeing for a long time,’ Siniša Mali said.
