I think that right now, Corridor 10 (direct links with Serbia & Greece, on whom Macedonia's economy relies on the most) is of utmost priority for Macedonia, as well as expressways or motorways, towards the country's main tourist town of Ohrid (via Tetovo, Gostivar, Kicevo, Struga) and second largest city of Bitola (via Veles & Prilep) .

Everything else...only as money comes along.

I still believe a Skopje - Sofia motorway is a matter of time, but into the distant future. I hope they extend M4 as a motorway to Ohrid and into Albania.
I think that if ever the Macedonian government starts to build a motorway on corridor 8 the priority would be the western sections due to the albanian influence in parliament. Which is not bad, of course.

Good news from the Macedonian front - work is finally in final phase on that last, short (8km) remaining section of the motorway towards Serbia (Kumanovo-Tabanovci) - after years of delays, it should be opened shortly

Erased signs for Greece:


Approaching the border:


The actual border is 500m from here:


It isn't allowed to continue further south, as a polite border guard told us.
Maybe someone knows when this border crossing stopped working?
did somebody reply to this thread ?
I plan to travel in the region and would like to pass the border there; Is it open for traffic ?

No, it is not. You have to cross the border between Bitola and Florina...

I do not think that the border crossing mentioned above was open at any time at least during the last 30 years and I assume it had not be operational even before. However there would be an intention to create a crossing there as Greek National Road 15 goes up to Agios Germanos and there is no reason to have a national road going there other than a (potential) border crossing.

Tabanovce-Kumanovo motorway put into use

Quote:
8.9.2011 13:30:00 | Author/Source PressCut

Tabanovce-Kumanovo motorway will be opened today on the occasion of Macedonia’s Independence Day. The 7.4 km long section, which is part of the Corridor 10, had been built for four years. Total value of the project, conducted by the State Road Agency, amounts to EUR 15.5 million.

In order to complete the Macedonian part of the Corridor 10, the 28.2 km long Demir Kapija-Smokvica section needs to be finished. The Macedonian government provided EUR 270 million from the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, the European Investment Bank and EU funds for the construction of the section.

Recently, a few infrastructural projects, such as Skopje Airport and St. Kliment Ohridski Boulevard, have been put into use in Macedonia.

The video is even more interesting. In the end of it it is said that the road concession winners of the route of corridor 8 on Macedonian territory will be known in October.

At the end of the video at around 1:23 you can see, that they used English name for Beograd (Belgrade). Probably the only country in the world, that doesn't use own language or language of destination country but third language, not used anywhere near.

And why they don't reconstruct old half?

they use original names in cyrillic, and English in latin. quite logical imo, although i'd prefer oriđinal transliteration. quite easy to do in the case of Macedonian.
