Opposition leader says almost half of Belgrade residents without sewer Izvor: N1

The head of the Alliance for Serbia group in the Belgrade City Assembly Nikola Jovanovic said on Thursday that more than half a million residents of the Serbian capital do not have access to a sewer system in their homes.

“It’s shameful that 560,000 people in Belgrade do not have access to a sewer system,” he said adding that this is more than the combined populations of the cities of Novi Sad and Nis. Belgrade has more than 1.3 million inhabitants.

“The city authorities promised in 2015 that every household in Belgrade will have access to drinking water and sewers by 2025 and deputy Mayor Goran Vesic recently changed the date to 2029, admitting that absolutely nothing has been done,” Jovanovic, deputy leader of the People’s Party, told reporters in the Mali Morki Lug suburb at a place where sewage has spilled onto a section of highway.
