To achieve the goals set out for the project, 3 levels of tasks were defined in the project’s TOR:
The first issue of the design activities of the project was the selection of a site for the terminal. The Minister of Infrastructure and Energy decided officially end of January 2011 that the terminal would be implemented near Batajnica Railway station. The second step of the design phase was a pre-feasibility study with a general design for the location in Batajnica, which was approved by the steering committee in July 2011. Following the General Design, the Institute for Urbanism of the City of Belgrade is preparing the planning documentation for the project, in particular the Detailed regulatory plan. In parallel, the consultants started with the preliminary design that is expected to be completed by the end of 2011, when the project will be submitted to the State Revision Commission. Tender documentation shall be prepared by April 2012.
The 2 main goals of the project are:
The main goal of intermodal transport is the optimal use of various transport means with successful cooperation of different transport actors in a transport chain. Savings in energy, time and expense, and greater environmental protection resulting from intermodal transport are attracting increasing attention in EU countries. The overall objective of the current project is to contribute to the long-term sustainable development of the logistics infrastructure and multimodal transport in Serbia. This requires integration of all transport sectors, increasing the cargo mobility, and improving the attractiveness and competitiveness of Serbia as a transit state, making a better use of national resources and reducing cargo carriage costs as well as environmental impact of heavy duty vehicles. With an efficient intermodal transport organization, the Republic of Serbia will become a reliable and recognized partner in the European logistic system. This should stimulate further and long term investments in order to establish a sustainable intermodal platform for the future.
