It looks like the Greek firm Aktor won the tender to build that last stretch of incomplete motorway through Macedonia, between Damir Kapija & Smokvica totalling some ~27 kilometers.

Good news.

But a € 7.5 million "upgrade" of M1? You can't upgrade a whole lot for € 7.5 million, I assume it's some repaving and maybe adding a shoulder here and there.

Repavement only, no new shoulders.

I've just driven through Macedonia back and forth on the E75. They accept cards, but my Visa Electron which was good in Serbia was not working there. Fortunately I had a classic Visa card with me, and that was working fine. I didn't try whether they accept Euro.

Because the area is very rough for building, they need to make a few tunnels and bridges since the track of the highway will be completely new.

Unless an extra fee is charged for paying with a "full" credit card (like with some airliners' online booking), it is always more economical to pay by card than using some foreign currency ...

I found an example that proves otherwise:
When you enter Croatia from Slovenia on the A7, there is a small stretch for which you have to pay 8 kuna or 1 euro. I paid by credit card, because I didn't see the euro payment, but 8 kunas were more then 1 euro.
