I would really be worried if the new motorways in a eurpean countries are not eing built with thermoplast markings. Bulgaria, when it was not in the european union was building roads with very high quality and glowing thermoplast markings. People should complain a lot about these motorways, since it is definatly substandart to have roads without thermoplast markings. In fact, except Macedonia I have only seen Greek motorways without thermoplast markings, I hope that will change. Albanian motorways do have thermoplast markings.

Macedonia will complete the Corridor 10 motorway

Quote:
30.9.2011 12:07:00 | Author/Source PressCut

The European Reconstruction and Development Bank (EBRD) has granted Macedonia a loan worth EUR 107 million for modernization of the Corridor 10 section which passes through Macedonia’s territory. The loan will be used for co-funding of the construction of the new 28-km long motorway section from Demir Kapija to Smokvica.

The same means will be also used for funding of the construction and modernization of toll booths and the installation of electronic toll payment equipment. According to finance minister Zoran Stavreski, Macedonia will get its most important transport route after the construction of the aforementioned motorway section is finished. Authorities think that the motorway construction is of great importance for Macedonia’s economy and its integration in general.

Errr...Corridor 10 is the north-south motorway, from the border with Serbia to the border with Greece

Btw, what about Veles-Prilep-Bitola, is there any plan to build a motorway there one day?
To me, that would be a bigger priority than a motorway towards the border with Bulgaria - after all, Bitola is the country's second largest city.

Pristina, October 8 - highway project financing Pristina - Skopje should be done through public partnerships - private, or by making concessions, economic experts estimate in Pristina.

According to them, the construction of this highway to Kosovo Budget funds could send the country into a deep budget crisis.

Arian Zeka, head of the Political Department at the American Chamber of Commerce, suggests that the Kosovo authorities to be careful in managing public money.

"Nobody is against the construction of highways, as this would allow easier movement and faster goods coming from other states as well as internally, but care must be taken on these plans on the construction of highways in the management of public money. Nobody would like a budget deficit of Kosovo, since it could would result in a potential budget crisis country, "says Zeka, Radio Free Europe.

Meanwhile, Minister of Infrastructure, Fehmi Mujota, has warned the manner of financing this project through the Government's stipulations.

He did not give any details about the development and progress within the project, but said that no form of concession has been successful in several other countries.

These warnings of the Government, Arian Zeka by the Chamber of Commerce in Kosovo considers dangerous. He hopes that the government has prepared a good plan and know where those funds will provide budget and do not enter the budget deficit.

However, Zeka provides several options for how to finance this project.

"The best form of financing highway construction would be through an instrument which is to promote the successful launch in Kosovo, this is through a partnership of public - private, and perhaps even by making more concessions. We have seen an example of concession of Pristina International Airport, there already has begun building a new terminal. And to think that this would be a good form for the construction of highway Prishtina - Skopje ", says Zeka.

On the other hand, Alban Zogaj economic affairs expert states that care should be taken regarding other new projects and large.

According to him, the Kosovo authorities must first make the expropriation of lands, properties, where it is planned route, and then continue to implement the project.

"Kosovo is currently imlpementuar a large project. I have the impression that the best would be completed once a large project such as the highway that connects us to Albania, then to begin work in the other direction. Then, the problematic issue is the question of expropriation of property and in the case being made in parallel with the development of the project is causing major delays and loss of cost and efiqencës, "says Zogaj.

Even expert on economic affairs said Alban Zogaj highway project financing Pristina - Skopje with the budget before the country can create high budget deficit.

"One of the forms that we analysts supporting the economy is the form of public partnership - private. When given a private company which finances road projects and implemton project and then returns the investment for a certain time for a 20-year concession, or depending on project size and investment, "he said.

Otherwise, according to the project recently introduced by the Ministry of Infrastructure, highways Pristina - Skopje will be built in a completely new track, with a length of 55 kilometers.

The highway will be two tunnels, while the longest will be one of Kacanik, 2. 2 miles. The maximum speed on the highway, according to the project, will be 120 kilometers per hour.
This is more to do with Kosovo roads and motorways as was posted there but also has to do with the development work in Macedonia too... I believe the Mac government has agreed to link this motorway which is supposed to be completed by 2014-2015. The picture shown on the article is the motorway linking Albania and Serbia.

Macedonian side is only 15-20 km (from the border to the northern bypass) there would be no problem for that depends when kosovo will be able to start and finish the route from your side.

Well the bad thing about the situation in Kosovo is that we are currently building the 118km motorway from Albanian border all the way up to north of Prishtina with an estimated cost of about 1 billion Euros and the government has difficulties finding funds to build the 55km motorway to Macedonian border as it intends to do. The details are that work will start next year and that it will take 3 years to complete. This motorway will not be an extention of the current highway linking Prishtina and Skopje but will run along this highway. There will be a 2-3km long tunnel on the Kosovo side and the maximum speed limit will be 120km/h. Kosovo government and prime minister Thaqi seem to be very keen on starting this project as soon as possible but have been held back up to now by the IMF and the World Bank. Macedonia is one of Kosovo's main trading partner and will have a big inpact on export and inport from Macedonia itself and a link with Pan-European Corridor X.

With current levels of revenue and expenditure, there's no way Kosovo will have the financial capability to construct two major motorways at the same time, regardless of what the clueless infrastructure minister tells people. And unless something major happens and we find oil or diamonds or something, any meaningful construction might start only in 2013, the year A1 is scheduled to finish.

The Macedonian part of the section will be put on concession. The tender will be closed in 10 days (I hope they won't postpone it again), so the start of works of this section could happen next year, or maybe in 2013 and because it is a small section, i assume it wont take more than 2 years max. So if everything goes as it should be, there might be a highway from Skopje to Kosovo's border in 2014-2015, or even earlier.
