yeah. I 've been driving this stretch last summer and it was without problems. Smooth asphalt, climbing lanes to hills and comfort alignment of line reminded me EU roads. Actually in Ohrid and Skopje I felt like in czech republic - all was quite clean and central european look. But huge surprise was when I heard about local unemployment and problems in society. Quite a shock for me after great impression about the country.

The river is most probably Vardar, but it looks like it runs parallel and that the bridge is actually over land.

You are asking about a motorway I'm sure
There is a plan and even a detailed project AFAIK, but that has been up until now only stuff for election campaigns
It should be a part of Corridor VIII and start south of Kumanovo towards K.Palanka.

its pretty old isnt it? I remember vaguely going for holiday in Greece in like 1990 and it was pretty much motorway most of the way in Macedonia.
Anyone has any pictures of the bit where the two directions of the motorway take a differenet route? I wonder what the terrain is like there.

It was build during Yugoslavia time, so at least 20 years.

The oldest section is 27 years old, the newest section is only couple of years old (I haven't posted pics of any of them so far)

Hopefully I will take some new pictures of that part soon. The terrain is not so special, they decided to use an old road and only build a half profile so they can save money. Something similar to the Italian A7. The section is about 30km long. It should be upgraded to a normal freeway eventually.

~40% was constructed during Yugoslavia time
~40% was constructed since independence
~20% is still missing, and the work on the two remaining sections should commence this year (one section should be finished by the end of the year and the other by 2010)

No. I think (not completely sure) that was built in the second half of the 90s. But definitely after SFRJ times.

Seems to be progressing quite fast.
What is the point of this excessive public lighting on whole distance of northern bypass? Because it doesn't look it is going through build-up areas with a lot of interchanges.
