The name of thread is "Highways & Autoput in Bosnia and Herzegovina"
so it is thread about 2 lane roads. Think before writing.

Dude, you've missed the point. Guy from US clearly wrote that he don't want to drive on hilly Bosnian highways, so it was decent to suggest him that he has an alternative.

And of course, I apologise for my ignorance. In fact, Serbocroatian word Autoput is equal to English word Highway, so there is a pleonasm in the name oh Bosnian motorway thread. The Slovenian word Avtocesta (or the Croatian word Autocesta) is equal to English word Motorway (or to Expressway in American English).

autoput is word in serbian and bosnian language and it means just the same as autocesta in croatian, avtocesta in slovenian or avtopat in macedonian - motorway.
the closest translation of "highway" in all those languages would be "magistrala" (although i'm not sure if it exists in slovenian language)

Who cares what it's called!! SO many threads have been titled something with highway instead of motorway or freeway or expressway or whatever you call it. A highway is any public road. If the thread is called something with highways, people are allowed to post about all public roads.. END of story

The good thing is you don't fall asleep on Bosnian roads because you almost never drive just straight. You visit us in Arizona here, all you do is drive straight. no wonder we topped the worlds largest pile up collision. 40 cars in a row. O_o

Are there some plans for connection like this in near future?

Of course, it's juts crappy sketch.

When Hungarian M6 and Croatian A5 will be finished this may become quite important corridor and useful shortcut. Bosnia probably doesn't have money to upgrade whole this route to motorway standard, but I hope for some improvements there.

Yes, exactly that corridor is Bosnia's A1!

HR border - Svilaj - Doboj - Zenica - Sarajevo - Mostar - HR border



At this moment, west Sarajevo bypass (SA northwest - SA west) is under construction as well as about 14 km south of Zenica in direction to Sarajevo.

The remain in direction to Sarajevo (northwest) is finished and is actually the only real motorway in Bosnia.

About A1 I think it will be a lot of time until it will be full completed, pretty similar situation as Slovakian D1 - mountains, tunnels, bridges and viaducts.

Check some pages back, there are maps.

and that koridor goes to where? ploce?? I don't think port ploce is so important that needs budapest attention so A1 would be more like a national route for bosnia i think.

I think so too (since Budapest have a motorway connection to bigger ports Koper and Rijeka) but I read many times this is the corridor from Budapest to Ploce (M6, A5, A1, A10).

Strange to me too but that is the official explanation.

Anyway it would also serve as future connection between Baltic sea - Slovakia - Budapest - Adriatic sea. In some way, quicker access for Mid-East Europe to southern Adriatic. Anyway that is very far away. Don't worry.

So in close future we may expect Sarajevo - Zenica including Sarajevo bypass.

I would say terrain in Bosnia is even more road-unfriendly than in Slovakia. There is very few lowlands and if there is some valley it's very narrow. But, at least once the motorways are build they offer great views.

Yes, as far as I know those are the only sections which are under construction.

(I am not counting 2+2 freeway Banja Luka - Bosanska Gradiska).

Check the photos in this thread.

I agree 2x.

The views in Slovakia near Tatra's are priceless. And so is in Bosnia (even now when there is no motorway, driving on 2x1 road which goes on the same route) makes the view on mountains look very nice.

Ploče is main port for BIH and 4th largest port at eastern Adriatic, so it's not that unimportant as it seems.

Of course it's going to be a national route dor Bosnia.It goes next to almost every major city.But the harbour of Ploce will be expanding and the A1 is going to be used by tourists driving to the Croatian coast.Both Croatia and Bosnia Herzegovina will benefit from this.

this map doesn't look too professional. (no offence to the maker of this map).
The most right green line is a part of international corridor Vc and has a full back up of EBRD. There are some parts already finished while other parts are in different phases of planning and construction. Everything else on this sketch is SF for now.

It goes to Ploče and is the closest route and connection with Central Europe and the Adriatic Coast, so it isnt so insignificant as you think, otherwise the EBRD wouldnt finance it
