Construction of New Zezelj Bridge in Novi Sad

Transnational project (ES, IT, RS) The old Zezelj bridge was destroyed in NATO air strikes in 1999. The temporary constructed bridge did not comply with the required standards of the Danube Commission and EU standards. The new Zezelj bridge (within the European Rhine-Danube Corridor) was reconstructed until 2018 at the same location using the foundation of the bombed bridge.

Upgrade of the Danube between Straubing and Vilshofen: Variant-independent investigation on the development of the Danube waterway between Straubing and Vilshofen

National project (DE) The Danube river section from Straubing to Vilshofen is a major bottleneck in the Trans-European Network. The task of this already concluded study was to examine the two remaining variants and to prepare technical and ecological planning for both variants. The aim was to bring about the final decision concerning the development of the Danube between Straubing and Vilshofen.

Upgrade of the Danube between Straubing and Vilshofen: Study for design, approval planning and public consultation within the frame of the planning approval procedure for subsection 1 (Straubing–Deggendorf)

National project (DE) The Danube river section from Straubing to Vilshofen is a major bottleneck in the Trans-European Network. After conducting a variant study in 2013, policy-makers decided to pursue variant A. This follow-up study laid out the necessary preconditions to obtain the construction permissions and budget approvals for the upgrading of subsection 1 Straubing-Deggendorf.

Rehabilitation, Improvement and Development of Transport and Navigation on the Sava River Waterway

National project (HR) The Sava river is navigable on 594 km of its river course and links the economies of the four Sava riparian states (Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Slovenia). This project will result in the improvement of the physical capacity of the Sava waterway and it will contribute to the improvement of mobility and multimodality in the Danube and Sava region.

Preparation of necessary documentation for river training and dredging works on selected locations along the Danube River in Serbia

Transnational project (NL, DK, RS) Critical sections on the Danube River in Serbia are identified in the Master Plan for IWW Transport in Serbia (2006). River training works are needed in order to achieve fairway parameters which would improve navigation conditions in terms of safety. Necessary designs and tender documentation for river training works on six critical sections on the Danube River in Serbia were elaborated.

Improving navigation conditions on the Danube between Calarasi and Braila (rkm 375–175)

National project (RO) As a consequence of critical points on the Călăraşi – Brăila section of the Danube, vessels must take a bypass route via the Bala–Borcea branch, which extends the navigation distance to around 110 km, for periods of around 140 – 160 days/ year. The project therefore includes river engineering works which will ensure navigation levels on the Old Danube and have a reduced impact on the environment, having effects only during low water seasons.

Waiting berth for the dismantling/remaking of pushed convoys at the junction between the Danube–Black Sea Canal and the Poarta Alba–Midia Navodari Canal

National project (RO) The main goal of the waiting berth for convoys is to facilitate the convoys’ assembling/dismantling operations, including the assurance of cargo safety as well as the simple vessel’s mooring, and to lower the unit waterway transport cost. The waiting berth is located on the left bank of the Danube–Black Sea Canal, upstream from the junction with the Poarta Albă–Midia Năvodari Canal. It is 300 m long and has three piers and a quay depth of 5.5 m.
