Track laying work for a 108-kilometer-long section of the Hungary-Serbia Railway between Novi Sad and Subotica was completed on Thursday, China Railway said in a press release sent to the Global Times.

The Hungary-Serbia Railway is a benchmark infrastructure project under the Belt and Road Initiative.

On the same day, dynamic testing results showed that trains running on a stretch between Novi Sad and Subotica can achieve a top speed of 200 kilometers per hour, China Railway said, noting that the railway can become operational by the end of this year.

Currently, overall construction of the Novi Sad-Subotica section is 80 percent complete, China Railway said.

In March, the Chinese-built Belgrade-Novi Sad high-speed railway marked its 2nd anniversary. The railway has transported over 7 million people between Serbia's two largest cities since its operation started in 2022.

According to the company, the north-south Hungary-Serbia Railway is a double-track electrified railway with a total length of 341.7 kilometers, including 183.1 kilometers in Serbia, with a designed maximum speed of 200 kilometers per hour. There are 158.6 kilometers in Hungary, with a designed maximum speed of 160 kilometers per hour.
