BELGRADE - A future Sumadija transport corridor - a motorway that will connect central and eastern Serbia - will be 220-270 km long and cost between 1.7 bln euros and over 2 bln euros, depending on the profile and connections with other corridors, Serbian Deputy PM and Minister of Construction, Transport and Infrastructure Zorana Mihajlovic told Tanjug Tuesday.

The motorway will be named after Karadjordje Petrovic, the leader of the First Serbian Uprising against Ottoman rule.

The corridor length will be 270 km "if we want to connect the corridor with Corridor 10 at Mali Pozarevac and with Corridor 11 at the Milos the Great Motorway," she said.

She said there was still no precise estimate of the investment value.

Mihajlovic announced a working group for relevant projects, which she said would begin from scratch, would be set up at the next government session.

"In just a few months' time, we will have a more precise framework for the Karadjordje Motorway concerning smaller towns, as well as an estimate of the investment," she said.
