The project concerns the rehabilitation of the existing Port of Smederevo, on the shore of the Danube River. It also includes the construction of a new port infrastructure in the bulk and general cargo terminal located along the core TEN-T Rhine-Danube inland waterway corridor. This sub-project is one of the preliminary identified schemes under framework loan operation 2017-0671 Serbian Inland Waterway Infrastructure.
The project will facilitate the construction, rehabilitation and upgrade of existing inland port infrastructure, aiming at facilitating a modal shift from road (which is the current dominant mode) to waterway transport. The aim is to increase capacity, reduce transport times and costs and ensure smooth, reliable and safe inland waterway transport. Inland navigation is one of the most energy efficient transport modes and it is considered crucial for providing sustainable multimodal transport links.
