I don't think so. Transliteration from cyrillic to latin script is more or less straightforward (which is not true for asian scripts) so using English here is very illogical.

They said in the video, that construction of remaining section towards Greece should commence in april or may (

I have seen signs with "Athens" in Greece. So Macedonia is not the only country

Furthermore, in the UAE I have seen signs with "Bordercrossing to the Sultanate of Oman". I am sure that this isn't one of the local languages either

EBRD Lends 107 Mln Euro to Macedonia for Transport Corridor X Section

20.9.2011 13:41:00 | Author/Source www.seenews.com

SKOPJE (Macedonia), September 20 (SeeNews) – The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) said on Tuesday it is lending 107 million euro ($146 million) to Macedonia for the construction of a section of the north-south Transport Corridor X.

The EBRD loan will be used to co-finance the construction of a new 28 kilometre segment of the motorway between Demir Kapija and Smokvica in the southeastern part of Macedonia, the EBRD said in a statement.

Superb Thanks for posting

Heh, I wonder what your thoughts were when you first laid eyes on Skopje's "Arc de Triomphe"...as well as those double-decker London buses, both seen near the end of your video?

well I've read about the plans here on ssc but the statues and arch are quite shocking in person. this was my fourth time in Skopje so it was strange. I loved the double deckers, i didn't see those before either.

That's the merging with the northern bypass highway but the terrain is quite high to the right side.

Great Video!

Are there any plans for a continuation of the motorway towards Ohrid in the near future?
