To realize the project, the city of Belgrade will allocate 600 million dinars, while the rest is the Ministry of Commerce, Tourism and Telecommunications, on the website where the tender was issued.
According to Radojicic, the Belgrade cable car will connect the fortresses of Kalemegdan and Usce, the length will be one kilometer and passengers will be transported to 25 cabins.
"We hope for good deals and contracts signed with contractors until the end of the year. We hope to start construction work with the start of the construction season in 2019. If weather conditions support, it is realistic that Belgrade cable cars are ready by the end of next year," said Radojicic.
The Mayor expressed hope that a large number of bidders would submit a tender, stating that competition was desirable.
He estimates that cable cars will have a positive impact on capital development, from turks to traffic.
The tender was published on the public procurement portal, as well as on the Ministry of Commerce, Tourism and Telecommunications website.
As stated in the invitation for tenders in the public procurement procedure "Construction of gondolas in Belgrade – cabin lifts, Ušće-Kalemegdan", the selection of the most profitable bids will be carried out using the criteria "lowest bid price".
The contract will be given to bidders who offer the lowest total price without VAT, provided that the offer meets the requirements under the Public Procurement Law and tender documentation for the relevant public procurement.
The Gondola will carry 3,000 people per hour, in both directions, and the travel time from one side of the river to another will be around five minutes.
According to professional estimates, the money invested in the construction of the gondola will return around six years.
