I have also read somewhere that they slowed down the construction of the lot Svilaj-Odzak to coincide it with the completion of the bridge, which led me to believe that they will not open it until the bridge is opened. I think that the best case for the bridge is 2017.

It wouldn't make much sense to open it without bridge since it would let from nowhere to nowhere...

"Chinese company to build highway section in RS

The state-owned motorway operator of Republika Srpska, JP Autoputevi RS, has signed a memorandum of cooperation with China Shandong International Economic&Technical Cooperation Group for the drafting of project documents and the construction of the Banja Luka-Prijedor motorway section, the Republika Srpska Government said on Wednesday.

Another one from Bosnia Today:

"Highway Sarajevo – Banja Luka to be built

At the summit of the six Western Balkan counties, which was held in Brussels on Tuesday, Bosnia and Herzegovina nominated five transport projects which were accepted by the EU.

And among them is the highway from Gradiska, over Banja Luka to Travnik.

This means that Sarajevo and Banja Luka, two biggest cities in BiH, could become linked with a modern road, because there is already a highway from Sarajevo to Zenica, near Travnik. [...]

I want to ask a question:
What is going to happen with the Sarajevo-Mostar-Croatian border part of the A1?
I ask you because I couldn't find the answer in the Wikipedia article that I read.
Please inform me, thank you.

A1 is being built very slowly due to lack of funding. Sarajevo-Tarcin is completed (20km) and Pocitelj-Croatian border is under construction (20km). However, there is no timeline for when the remaining length will be completed. The segment between Tarcin and Pocitelj will be extremely expensive, as it goes through a mountainous region and involves a long tunnel (6km - maybe longer) through mountain Prenj.

Pocitelj-Medugorje is still in tender procedure. Medugorje-border was opened last September.

My personal feeling on the matter is that Sarajevo should forget about the expensive segments and instead concentrate on getting "easy" (nothing is easy when it comes to building roads in Bosnia!) sections open of Corridor Vc. By the time the Sava Bridge opens to Croatia, there'll be only 120km left to build between Sarajevo and the border to the north.

I'm also of the opinion that if Bosnia can keep on constructing (no matter how slowly) corridor Vc, then it puts pressure on Slovakia/Hungary to also come up with linking Budapest and Zilina. Eventually, a decent route from Warsaw to Dalmatia will end up existing, which will do wonders for trade in this part of the world.

Keep on dreaming, I know.

OK, my question was answere.

Sorry about the consecutive questions but I really want to ask 2 more:
1)How about the cost of the Sarajevo-Croatian border part? (I would guess its about €1,5-2 billion because of the tunnel)
2)How about the progress on the Sava bridge?
And how long is it?

I read the first article and its really good that 309 million euros can be saved this way, but I think that the second tube must be constructed as well.
And completion of the road in 2030?
Its a bit too much for such an important road, but as long as there are no funds, I excuse the Bosnian government.

The second tube really isn't needed, as there simply isn't that much long distance traffic in Bosnia right now. The problem with travelling in Bosnia is rather related to the terrain - most intercity routes are simply either exceptionally twisty with considerable changes in elevation, or they have issues with uncontrolled strip development creating incredibly endless built-up areas.

Remember, Bosnia isn't a big country in terms of population. From memory, Mostar only has a population of around 120,000 in the entire district, and the Sarajevo area must only be around 600,000. For that reason, even half profile motorways will do wonders for improving transport links.

This is why I think expanding the A1 north makes far more sense than going south at the minute. The A1 to the north can link into the Banja Luka-Doboj motorway, while also providing a decent way to access Tuzla, Zagreb and Belgrade. To the south on the other hand, it doesn't really open up much.

I'm pretty sure that Bosnia will manage to complete the easy sections of A1 within the next 10-15 years. Mostar-Sarajevo on the other hand... I don't think so.

I have to say that l agree with that.....and at the moment, priority should be given in the north part of the road, as it seems far more easy (as I have seen in maps).
in conclusion, are there any tunnels in the north part of the road?

There might be a couple, but nothing in any way major.

The problem is politics - the A1 in the north after Zenica doesn't really connect to anything in the Federation, whereas the A1 towards Mostar (and the coast) is in the interest of both Bosniaks and Croats.

Still, I'd expect the A1 to at least go towards the border of the RS/FBiH, which should help things somewhat. -

Yes, that's why I mentioned the importance of the southern part of the road but as long as it is hard to finally construct it, the north part seems more realistic.
probably because along with the Sava bridge it's going to connect Sarajevo with cities like Zagreb, Osijek or Budapest in a more appropriate way......if successful, then the interest in constructing the southern part of the A1 will follow, that's what I think.
Oh, by the way, there is no doubt that an A1 near the federations borders will be really effective, as well.

Do anyone know when they open the nort parth on A1 together with the south part of Croatian A5? When that part is open that means parts of Bosnian motorways is a part of the Contnental motorways.

The BiH motorway A1 is already connected to the Continental motorways at Bijaca and the Croation A10/A1
Without the bridge over the Sava river this section is useless so the construction has not been intense, as you can see:

Thank you! Is this means when the bridge over Sava river is complete they will connect Bosnian A1 with Croatian A5 at the same time?

When do they plan to open that bridge?

Another question. Thats interesting a part of Bosnian motorway A1 is already connected to the Continental motorways at Bijaca. Do anyone knows when this part will be open to Mostar?

There haven`t started the bridge building, what`s more there even is not announced tender yet and you ask about date of opening?! Come on...

PS Previous 2* tenders has been cancelled.
