Highway Belgrade - South Adriatic, passing through Serbia and its central part - Sumadija, from Ostruznica (detour E-70/E-75) to Pozega, stands as part of connection between Serbia and Montenegro, i.e. the shortest connection of Belgrade and its surroundings with South Adriatic. Existing road net within the area of this section, first of all Main road M-22(Ibarska main road), links several industrial towns (Lazarevac, Gornji Milanovac, Valjevo, Cacak, Pozega, Uzice etc.) and, together with the Highway E-75, represents extremely important part of road traffic in Serbia.

Nowadays, traffic flow from Belgrade to Pozega is carried out through state roads of I rank (main roads M-22 and M-5).

Achieved traffic frequency at certain sections of M-22 is a cause of significant deceleration, choosing alternative routes and reducing traffic safety.

The need to overcome this situation exists for many years. Highway Belgrade - South Adriatic has constantly been part of development plans since the seventies, as a road way planned to be built immediately after the road E-75. This kind of significance and a place in national and European road network has led to categorizing this road corridor as European one (marked as E-763).

Construction works were started in 2012 according to Loan Agreement signed between Azerbaijan Government and Serbia Government.

40.36 km long two-sided road with the with four lanes was constructed during 4 years. Three road junctions, 3 tunnels each with the length of 260-1050 m, 65 bridges (23 of them are multi-level bridges), abutment walls with the length of 6 km in landsline areas were constructed within the project. Relocation of river delta in the distance of 22 km was fulfilled.

Inauguration ceremony of Ljig-Preljina section of the highway was held with participation of Mr. Alexandar Vucic, the Prime Minister of the Republic of Serbia and Mr. Shahin Mustafayev, the Minister of Economy of Azerbaijan Republic. The project was completed on 26th of December, 2017.

Hereafter people travelling from Serbia to Montenegro and to Western Europe will pass through the road constructed by Azerbaijan Company AzVirt according to European and world Standards.
