Piling is under way for repairs to a railway bridge across the river Sava, south of Belgrade in Serbia. The twintrack line, serving an important railway yard near Ostruznica, has been out of action since it was heavily damaged by NATO bombing in April 1999.

Local contractor Mostogradnya, funded by the railway division of the Serbian Ministry of Transport, is carrying out repairs which will begin with strand jack lifting of a steel trestle span which collapsed into the river. The operation is complicated by the need to investigate the wreckage before moving it.
