The Serbian Government has set itself a major challenge for its highway development programme. Construction is underway on 503km of highways in Serbia at present, while a further 944km of highways will be ready by the close of 2024. The end of 2023 will see work complete on the Milos the Great Road to Pozega, the bypass around Belgrade, and the roads connecting Ruma with Sabac and Ivory with Lajkovac.
The country has made considerable extensions of its highway system over the past decade, an increase from the 596km network it had back in 2012. An other important road coming into use in 2012 were the 87.5km link connecting Prosek with Gradina.
