The regular traffic on the Danube, one of Europe's main inland shipping routes, was halted after warplanes of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization destroyed three bridges across the river at Nevi Sad in Serbia during the Kosovo crisis. The action disrupted water transportation and caused enormous losses for firms using the Danube and for eastern national economies reliant on it. Now the early reopening of the river to general traffic appears likely. The general opinion among Danube operators, following the change of leadership in Belgrade in 2000 and the start of inspection work on the river at NoviSa, is that unhampered shipping will be possible again by the end of 2001.
