The city is called "Αθήνα" in Koine Hellenic. So "Athina" or "Athena" are both correct.

More info about Athena:

Quote:

[IMG]http://i42.************/iqyd74.jpg[/IMG]

In Greek mythology, Athena (also called Athene, Attic: Ἀθηνᾶ, Athēn or Ἀθηναία, Athēnaa, Epic: Ἀθηναίη, Athēnaē, Ionic: Ἀθήνη, Athḗnē, Doric: Ἀθάνα, Athna; Latin: Minerva) is the shrewd companion of heroes and the goddess of heroic endeavour. She is the virgin patron of Athens, which built the Parthenon to worship her.

You mean that Kosovo has serbian signs as well. It's absolutely normal for Kosovo to have albanian signs like it's normal to have serbian signs in Belgrade.

Official languages are Albanian and Serbian, still the end of war.

Kumanovo-Serbian border highway U/C. It's a short stretch some ~10km at the most but it important as it completes that small missing section towards the north and makes a continuous highway from MK-RS border to Demir Kapija in the south leaving only 25km of non highway on the Macedonian Corridor 10 section.

Awesome. Hopefully the Serbians too will switch into high gear soon - the Macedonian missing sections are not that long, but the Serbian gap is very annoying.

They are also constructing the section from the border going some 20km northward. However the hardest and longer part still awaits them.

And the missing section of the Skopje bypass is finally coming to completion. The legal land expropriation issues were finally resolved and the project should be officially completed and put in use this month (there is always chance for delay in this country but I doubt it's gonna be later than July in case it happens).

This means that the we are talking about some 130km continuous highway along the east-west corridor 10 from Kumanovo to Gostivar. This also means that the transit traffic going to the west of the country will not have to enter Skopje any more using the almost 30km long new bypass instead.

Great pictures,

But why are the roadnumbers so extremely small?

Skopje bypass looks nice. Is there a 130 km/h speed limit?

yes it was supposed to be completed some time ago and most of it was completed long some time ago, but there were land expropriation issues on a 500m stretch passing through a farm and I think 1-2 much smaller sections making it impossible for it to be finished. Large projects here are often hostages of greedy peasants trying to make the most out of such situatuation by demanding crazy amounts of money for their strip of land in the middle of nowhere. Luckily this project is reaching its end.

130 km/h is announced to be introduced but is still not legaly adopted (together with other speed limit modifications). So for the time being it's 120 km/h.

Thanks for the pics, dewrob, finally coming to an end. It really looks nice, and it's great that it's illuminated all the way. Many noise barriers indeed (or noiseblocking walls ). Btw, does anyone see giant guys on the left?
