Modernization of the depot and passenger station Zemun
The 1520 Group of Companies continues participating in the implementation of a large-scale project for the comprehensive modernization of the railway station and passenger train depots of the technical and passenger station (TPS) Zemun in Belgrade, Republic of Serbia.
Technical and passenger station Zemun is an integral part of the Belgrade railway hub. Construction of the Zemun station began in 1977 in the namesake district of New Belgrade.

The main customer of the new project is the state operator of passenger rail transport in Serbia «Srbija Voz». The General contractor for the modernization project of the entire TPS Zemun facility is a consortium — a part of the largest construction company in Serbia «Energoproject Visokogradnja» and the French company «Colas Rail».
The project provides for a full reconstruction and modernization of TPS Zemun, which includes 110 railway points. The project aims to create additional capacity to ensure uninterrupted traffic and maintenance of new EMUs and classic passenger cariages carried on locomotive traction, as well as to reduce the empty carriage traffic on the X Trans-European transport corridor and in the vicinity of Belgrade.
As part of the project, 14,000 square meters of facilities will be constructed and 19,000 square meters fully reconstructed. An important point is that the project will be implemented without stopping the of trains traffic through Zemun station.
