New protest against construction in Belgrade city centre

New protest against construction in Belgrade city centre Izvor: N1

The Belgrade city authorities faced another protest on Thursday when local residents blocked construction work on city centre street.

A group of central Belgrade residents have launched an attempt to “unblock” a street which is being dug up using what they claim is the “dubious excuse of problems with sewage pipes”.  

The group calling themselves the Pedestrians are Not Marathon Runners Initiative said that they believe the city authorities plan to use the excuse to pave Toplicin Venac street with “expensive stone” and replace the street lights which they say was put up recently.  

Initiative members said that part of that street and surrounding streets had been closed to traffic and paved using the same excuse. They said the works cost more than 100 million Dinars (1 Euro – 118 Dinars), creating serious traffic problems.  

The initiative is demanding an end to the works and the isolation of central parts of the city pending a referendum on what they want their neighbourhood to look like and want an independent expert study for the city centre.
