Here's my answer from the MNE-Thread, but for the records, it should alsostand here I guess

Here are some photos of the road:

But there was a land slide somewhere and that was only repaired with dirt and gravel. But that's just a few meters, not that bad.

Thank you! I've noticed plenty of tourist buses go that way, so it can't be...so bad, can it?

That worst section from Brod na Drini to Scepan polje is about 24 km long. Be patient and do not hurry, you will pass that section in about 30 min. There are some parts where you should probably get a few meters back to pass the cars from opposite direction. And be prepared for possible longer waiting on the border crossing Scepan polje, not longer from 30 min, because there are many tourists who are traveling by mini buses from camps to starting point for rafting down the river Tara. The camps are in Bosnia and the starting point is in Montenegro. From Scepan polje the road passes by the Piva lake with spectacular landscapes and view. From Piva lake the road is good, you can drive very fast.

30 minutes to go 24km is more than reasonable. But do you know if the road surface is ok? I don't expect it to be perfect, but as long as it isn't a complete nightmare, I'm fine with it.

While we're at it - is the rest of the route from Sarajevo in good condition?

The landscapes and view are what I'm going for

100 million euros for continuation of Corridor Vc construction

Quote:
The Council of Ministers approved the initiative of the Ministry of Finance and Treasury and appointed a delegation for negotiations in order to conclude the Agreement on financing between Bosnia and Herzegovina and the European Investment Bank – Corridor 5c, section Počitelj - Bijača, which connects Bosnia and Herzegovina with Croatia in the north and the south of the country.

The Počitelj – Bijača section, 21.2 km long, is divided into three sub-sections: Kravica-Bijača, Zvirovići - Kravica and Počitelj - Zvirovići.

The European Investment Bank provides a loan for the project in the amount of 100 million euros that will be allocated to the Federation, the repayment period is 25 years, including a six-year grace period and a favorable EURIBOR interest rate.

Total project costs are estimated at 202 million euros, of which the EIB loan is 100 million euros, and earlier concluded EBRD loan of 60 million euros euros. The amount of funds that is missing for the construction and supervision of construction, as well as expropriation and design, will be provided from their own resources, announced the Information Service of the CoM BiH.

Karić: Contractors on section Počitelj – Bijača to be selected in August

Quote:
Construction of section Počitelj - Bijača on Corridor 5C will begin by the end of the year, it was said after the Council of Ministers adopted yesterday the financing initiative through a credit from the European Investment Bank in the amount of 100 million euros with the allocation to the Federation BiH and the loan repayment period of 25 years, including six year grace period and a favorable EURIBOR interest rate, BiH News Agency Patria reported.
The section Počitelj - Bijača is 21.2 km long and is divided into three sub-sections: Kravica - Bijača, Zvirovići - Kravica and Počitelj - Zvirovići. Within this section is a kilometer-long and 91 m high bridge near Počitelj. Ensad Karić, Director of PE Higheways FbiH, which is responsible for the project, said that the construction of the bridge on this section would be the most expensive part of the project.

"We will begin the tendering and selection of contractors in August," says Karić.

Total project costs are estimated at 202 million euros, of which the EIB loan amounts to 100 million euros, and the earlier concluded loan with the EBRD amounts to 60 million euros. The amount of funds that is missing for the construction and supervision of construction, as well as expropriation and design will be provided from the company's own resources.

"The construction of the section will directly connect Mostar and Bijača, and it is expected that the whole project will facilitate trade, contribute to the development of tourism, regional and national economy, and further improve the life of the entire region," according to Patria.

Just some comments about my trip through Bosnia recently :

- The road from Brcko to Tuzla is absolutely horrible. It's nothing but non-stop towns and villages - not recommended to anyone who actually wants to get anywhere fast.
- The road from Tuzla to Sarajevo is tiring and relentless. It's really not recommended for anyone who doesn't enjoy constant climbs, descents and turns.
- Sarajevo to Trebinje is...interesting. I didn't make it over to Montenegro that way, but the section from Sarajevo to Brod na Drini is bloody long. From Brod na Drini to Trebinje isn't so terrible, especially on one climb that appears to have been modernised with a lovely long tunnel at the end of it.
- Trebinje to Herceg Novi is very odd. The Bosnian section is excellent, but what the hell am I paying 3 Euro for on the Montenegrin side?

All in all though, I was impressed by the actual quality of Bosnian roads. Almost all the roads had a decent surface, signage has improved dramatically since 2011. The only bad point is the almost diabolical lack of signs indicating distances to places - there's only one sign between Sarajevo and Trebinje, and one between Tuzla and Sarajevo. Why?

I must admit - I wouldn't want to drive between Tuzla/Sarajevo/Trebinje in winter.

It's a wonderful piece of road - it's very very well engineered and you can absolutely fly up the mountain!

Incidentally, any idea why they appear to still be using (new) blue background signs in the Federation? I can understand if they were old signs, but I spotted some signs in Tuzla that looked new.

In Tuzla downtown? Those signs are some 6-7 years old

Blue signs are also used on expressways (brze ceste), for example on Banja Luka-Klašnice, M17 near Zenica, Sarajevo western entrance, etc.

mistake

What road did you use from Brcko to Tuzla? R460, R459, R458 or M14.1-M1.8?

M14.1-M1.8. It was the signposted route, so

Nestvaran, yes, those signs in the downtown.

Is it true that Bosnia is finally renumbering their roads to make more sense, too?

At least one part of Bosnia, Federation is changing the numbers, Republika Srpska not.
