Speaking about the reconstruction, Aleksandar Starčević also pointed out that it was the continuation of KfW programme and that works in that street should be finished by 20 July.
- After that Bagljaš sections going to be reconstructed and then we will have a such more efficient system and referring to this a new regulation is expected from the Government defining the heating price list for cities. The regulation will clarify all ambiguities - said Starčević, adding that all the works will have be finished by the beginning of the heating season.
