The European Investment Bank (EIB) has signed a cooperation agreement with the City of Niš in Serbia to finance the preparation of a sustainable urban mobility plan, enabling the city to make informed investment decisions concerning its transport network.

By taking into account existing travel patterns, development trends and the municipality’s strategic planning objectives, the sustainable urban mobility plan will help ensure that such investments are optimised to provide efficient, safe, convenient and less carbon-reliant mobility. In addition, the technical assistance will enable the City of Niš to explore opportunities created by the future removal of freight traffic from the existing inter-urban railway corridor crossing the city.

The sustainable urban mobility plan and the investments it will generate will help Niš to grow, supported by a high-quality, well-integrated transport network, thus enhancing the appeal of the city as a place to live and invest in. The technical assistance is provided under Team Europe and the joint Urban Projects Finance Initiative between the EIB and Agence Française de Développement (AFD), launched to support ambitious urban development projects.

EIB Vice-President Lilyana Pavlova, responsible for the Bank’s activities in the Western Balkans, said: “One of the EIB’s priorities, as the EU climate bank, is to promote cleaner and more sustainable transport by modernising railways, waterways and urban transport capacities across the Western Balkans. This technical assistance will provide a foundation for developing projects that will bring multiple benefits to people living and commuting to Niš, as well as economic benefits arising from better connections within the city and with surrounding municipalities. At the same time, it will help the city address urban development and climate-related challenges and thus improve environmental and living conditions.”

Our commitment to reducing harmful gases and protecting water, soil and air is of great importance in our strategic development plans. It is with great pleasure and enthusiasm that we begin our cooperation with the European Investment Bank on the basis of the signed agreement. This kind of help and the results we will achieve together will be valuable to us in the time to come.”
