Personally, this whole motorway construction through concession plan seemed like a folly from the start. Serbia got burned this way too. Now we're building motorways on our own time & dime.

For Macedonia, obvious priorities are extending the motorway network to its premier tourist hotspot at Lake Ohrid and thus attracting even more tourists from Serbia and wider region, as well as the second largest city of Bitola.

And that's only after completion of the remaining stretch of Corridor 10 towards Greece.

I prefer realism, as well. And I do not see any possibility or need to build motorway towards Prilep and Bitola. At least, not before Kriva Palanka motorway, that is part of Corridor 8. For more, highway from Veles to Prilep and Bitola is not busy at all. It has one very curvy part that passes thru a mountainous region, that needs the third lane as upgrade, and that’s it.

But Macedonians know better. My opinion is that they are waiting to join EU to get some money to build Kriva Palanka motorway for free.

highway toward Kriva Palanka is enough for traffic it gets.
Priority would be connecting 2nd biggest Macedonian town Bitola with motorway.

Macedonia gets EC's 60 million euro grant for Corridor X and waste water treatment plant in Prilep

Quote:
Skopje, 9 December 2011 (MIA) - Macedonia gets an European Commission's grant worth 59.5 million euros, out of which 45 million euros are intended for completing the Demir Kapija-Smokvica motorway section, which is part of Corridor X. Additionally, 14.5 million euros are allocated for a waste water treatment plant in Prilep.

Vice PM and Finance Minister Zoran Stavreski, Minister of Transport and Communications Mile Janakieski, Environment Minister Abdilaqim Ademi and Jean-Marie Seyler, Director in EU's Directorate General for Regional Policy, signed on Friday two infrastructural projects, co-financed by the European Commission through the IPA Instrument for Regional Development.

In addition to 45 million euros provided through the IPA Regional Development Component, 130 million euros have been provided by the European Investment Bank, 90 million euros by the European Band for Reconstruction and Development as well as 6 million euros by the Macedonian Agency for State Roads. "These funds have entirely completed the financial plan for construction of a modern motorway section between Demir Kapija and Smokvica. It contributes to completing Corridor X - the main transport network passing through Macedonia linking us with Europe to the north and with the Thessaloniki Port to the south," Vice PM Stavreski said after the signing ceremony.

A construction company should be selected at a tender by mid-2012, after which the construction will be officially launched, according to him.

The Prilep waste water treatment plant, Stavreski stated, is the first in a series of projects that will be realized with EU funds. The Macedonian government will single out six million euros from the budget for the project.

"These are the two out of several projects realised within the third regional component from the pre-accession assistance instrument in amount of 202 million euros to finance additional projects in connection to road and railroad transportation," Vice PM Stavreski said.

Only major infrastructural projects can boost the competitiveness of the national economy and trigger economic growth and development in the country, according to him. "They are beneficial for the citizens and also contribute to Macedonia's EU integration," Stavreski noted.

EU's Seyler stressed that the construction of a motorway section on Corridor X was crucial for Macedonia, its neighbours and for the EU.

"While executing such projects, governments need to apply European values i.e. quality to be offered for the money invested and to take measures for protecting the environment. It is important the projects to be completed on time, otherwise some of the funds may be lost," he said.

The construction of Demir Kapija-Smokvica motorway section is expected to be completed by 2017.

The waste water treatment plant in Prilep will be constructed as of mid-2012. The plant is envisaged to preserve surface and underground waters in the region of Prilep, to improve the quality of agricultural products and to advance the environment. ba/fd/16:16

Good news from the Macedonian front...looks like the job of finishing the Corridor 10 motorway through the country will go to an Italian consortium, which has offered the lowest price among fifteen bidders...

Quote:
Italian company is the most serious candidate for highway Demir Kapija-. According to the Alpha, the company offered the lowest tender price of 182 million euros. The highest bid was almost 400 million. Of the reported 15 international companies violated the most tender requirement that financial bids submitted shall be calculated without the value added tax.

For companies that submitted bids under the tender rules, a key requirement will be the price performance of the section of Corridor 10. One of the conditions and provide a bank guarantee with the rating "AA" in the start can be a problem for candidates who come from countries like Greece prezadolzhenite. Commission recently conducted evaluation of bids.

The whole procedure under the log should be completed by March when it was known company that will build this section of highway. The tender is implemented under the supervision of European institutions. Major donors and creditors of the project are the European Investment Bank and European Bank for Reconstruction and Development. According to government estimates, the highway will cost 270 million euros.

Italian firm Toto and Greek Aktor have submitted best offers in a tender to build the last remaining section of Corridor 10 motorway through Macedonia...Demir Kapija-Smokvica.

As he learns "Capital", with revision of the 15 offers that have arrived to build a motorway Demir Kapija-these companies have submitted the best offer, and many of them have met the requirements prescribed by the European Commission and the EBRD, which financed the project . Decision which company will take the biggest infrastructure project worth 270 million euros should be made by the end of the month, when the term ends that had the Ministry of Finance for evaluating bids. Meanwhile, Macedonian construction companies are awaiting a company wins the tender to begin negotiations for their participation as subcontractors on the part of the construction works.

As previously announced, "Capital," Italian companies Toto Todini and Greek actors gave najtraktivni bids for construction of this section, 27 km long, and most likely has a supply of 182 million euros, which gave Toto, which has the lowest cost of construction . Highest bid, 400 million Chinese company submitted CWE, which is one of two companies interested in building hydropower Cebren and Galishte. According to the "Capital", most companies offer dostavile not meet all the conditions that violated the tender requirement that submitted financial bids should be calculated without VAT.

Marked #3 here:


Meanwhile, it seems that Macedonia has given up on a planned motorway towards Bulgaria - instead, the exsting road will be reconstructed & widened.

There are two sections that have not finished yet - and the current crisis leaves them back. The Tempi Valley tunnels (at the south of Mount Olympos) and the Stylida bypass (east from Lamia).

Yes indeed. Its a whole urban boulevard and a southern bypass for Skopje that should connect E-67 with E-75 with some main crosses in the city, and a underground section in the city center showed above. But for next 6 years is planned only the underground section contract with a Turkish company.

Anyone has any info on the Pristina - Skopje motorway? What are the plans on the Macedonian side? Kosovo government has recently stated that it will start the construction from early next year and will finish the project within 3 years... I can only guess that construction in Macedonia will start much later because there will only be 20km for FYROM to complete.
