STA, 11 July 219 - The Public Administration Ministry has laid the groundwork for the erection of another 40 kilometres of border fence. It would not reveal, however, where the fence will be placed.
The new fence will be supplied and set up by the Serbian company Legi-SGS for EUR 4.8 million.
The fence alone will cost EUR 4.56 million, and the pillars, fittings and installation another EUR 273,000, shows the result of an open call released on Wednesday.
The ministry looked for the best bidder with two calls for applications, and the Belgrade-based Legi-SGS was picked as the best bidder in both.
The ministry would not reveal where the border fence will be placed. It says this is confidential.
It did say, however, that additional fence would be erected in places where this is required to prevent illegal migration and protect locals and their assets. In some places, the new fence is needed because the old one is damaged.
The specific decisions on when, where and how much fence is needed are made based on the proposal of the Slovenian police, the ministry said.
