Emre Tokmak, Vice President Of Tasyapi

The Highway That Will Develop The Region

Tasyapi is a company that’s working on several projects that are important for Serbia and the region, including construction of the Sremska Rača-Kuzmin Highway, reconstruction of the Novi Pazar-Tutin state road and construction of apartments for the security forces in Niš

In the south, Tasyapi is engaged in preparation of the preliminary design for the Požega-Kotroman section. We strongly believe that the dedicated Serbian government will proceed with amendments to the current commercial contract in order to enable the construction of this section – says Tasyapi Vice President Emre Tokmak.

Tasyapi is designing and constructing the Belgrade-Sarajevo highway. Can you tell us more about this landmark project?

This project has unique importance for the development of Serbia and Bosnia-Herzegovina throughout the Balkan region, and also creates a significant opportunity for the development of business in both countries. This region faced severe shared issues in the past, thus this project somehow settles mutual disputes and promises a bright future for relations in the neighbourhood. As a company, Tasyapi is proud to represent the Turkish construction industry in this landmark project.

The construction of the highway started with the Sava Bridge on the Kuzmin–Sremska Rača section and will continue in the coming months with the construction of 18 kilometres of the motorway. This section is designed as a classic highway profile, with two lanes, a hard shoulder lane and a central dividing zone, for speeds of up to 130 km/h.

The bridge will be made of premium materials and will satisfy high demands in terms of design, quality and usability. On the other side of Sava, the highway will run alongside the cities of Bijeljina and Brčko, as well as the municipality of Vukosavlje. From there it will continue on towards Sarajevo via Tuzla. In the south, Tasyapi is engaged in preparation of the preliminary design for the Požega- Kotroman section.

What is the approximate value of the entire project?

It’s hard to estimate the total value of the project at this stage, considering that it’s one of the largest infrastructure projects in this part of Europe. The indicative figure of the Sremska Rača-Kuzmin section is 250 million euros. General project documentation is currently being prepared for the Požega-Kotroman section, covering a length of around 60 km, and value of that section will significantly exceed the ongoing northern part due to the complexity of the terrain. When we add to this the Bosnian part of the highway, we assume that the total value of the project will be around four billion euros.

Tasyapi is the contractor on projects to rehabilitate the Novi Pazar-Tutin road and construct residential buildings for members of the security forces in Serbia?

Our teams are also engaged in rehabilitation of the Novi Pazar-Tutin state road. This challenging project is divided into three sections and our machinery and staff are working full time to complete this project in a timely manner. Additionally, we teamed up with a local company to complete works on four residential buildings in Vranje, where we built 186 apartments for members of the security forces in Serbia. We are currently also working on five more residential buildings with the same purpose in Niš, with a total of 190 apartments to be built.

Tasyapi is also active in humanitarian work in Serbia?

Tasyapi has participated in numerous humanitarian activities in the countries where it performs works. Considering the worldwide spread of the novel Coronavirus, we would like to emphasise just the activities we performed in recent months related to this serious virus. Namely, we donated 65 hospital beds for intensive care units, 75 anti-decubitus mattresses, six respirators, over 500 sets of bedding, over 600 pairs of shoes for hospital workers, 5,000 PCR tests and much more. Our donations were delivered to Belgrade’s KBC Dr Dragisa Mišović-Dedinje, the General Hospital in Novi Pazar and the Republika Srpska Institute of Public health.
