They don't have it because of political reasons. And they've already upgraded the route from Alexandropoulos to Igoumenitsa!

But MK border to Solun is only about 70km or so.

If that were true why would the Greek government have provided funds to Serbia and FYROM to upgrade Corridor 10 in the past.

As a result of the economic downturn traffic volumes on the Greek part of Corridor 10 have gone back dramatically and for that reason no decission has been taken to upgrade it to a motorway.

However, a small part of 15 km of Corridor 10 from the Greek border until the Polykastro interchange has motorway characteristics. After that it is a 1X1 road with an extended service lane on the right. From the Halastra interchange until it combines with A2 it is a motorway again.

I know that road and think it is enough adequate for traffic. The most important feature of that road is you can easily and safely overtake other cars, since the road is enough wide.

Traveled this summer through Macedonia and of course I did not get any local currency since I was only passing through and not leaving the highway. But at the pay toll they only accepted euro in letters and not coins. And they only gave back local currency.

A waste of the local currency since you will not be needing it anymore and the total sum of the paying was 4 euro. So leaving macedonia you had 60 denar I think that you had to throw in the garbage.

The idea is that - since you now have Denars - you're more likely to stop at a gas station and purchase something.

The same here.

Yesterday I arrived from the holiday in Greece and Macedonia totally drove me crazy.

During my journey there, I also did not get any denars, since it had been common in Macedonia to pay with Euro on patarinas.

This year the worker on patarina asked me to pay in denars which I obviously did not have. So I asked him to accept Euro. He insist on giving him exactly one 5 euro banknote. I told him I had not got any and gave him 20 euro banknote. He gave me back 3x 5 euro banknotes and some denars. I was a bit nervous because I suspected inconvinient exchange rate but the worker made me sure, that I have to pay in those denars on next patarinas and that it is the exact value for journey there and back. I got calm a bit since I thought it was good idea.

But here is the reality: The fee to pay in the last patarina was 50 MKD but I had only 30 MKD. It is good to point out that I had not pay anything except patarinas in MKD. Of course the worker at last patarina refused anything but 5 eur banknote and denars. I had to pay by credit cards.

And I would not like to talk about border police. The policeman has queue of 40 cars and he is reading my passport like it is interesting newspaper.

Good old Serbs.

Finally! This section was in really bad condition, so I'm very happy to read this announcement:

Reconstruction of highway Veles-Katlanovo with length of 23 kilometers

The highway section Veles-Katlanovo with length of 23.5 km will be prepared for rehabilitation activities. The call for construction has been announced on the official website of the European Union, under the IPA Regional Development Component regarding the transportation.

The deadline for submission of bids is December 2nd this year and the period for performance of works is one year. The contractor that will be selected needs to provide rehabilitation under previously prepared basic design, meeting the technical standards and quality requirements and criteria in terms of the environment. The works will include activities to rehabilitate and rebuild roads and levees, replacing signaling and marking the path.

It is a complete reconstruction of pavement along the entire length of the section, setting new edges and protectors, set a new advanced horizontal and vertical signaling networks for protection against landslides and rehabilitation canals for rainwater and groundwater. This should provide increased security when traveling, shortening the travel time, and should reduce maintenance costs of vehicles that pass by that section.

In the following days will be published and a public call for the election of a company that will supervise the construction work.

Last year was rehabilitated the highway section Katlanovo-Veles. In this section was performed reconstruction that included repavement of asphalt, placing contemporary horizontal signaling, making completely new edges, network protection from landslides and setting up more than 230 signs in vertical position along the section.

With this project, along the construction of Tabanovce-Kumanovo section, and the construction of a new motorway section Demir Kapija-Smokvica, which is underway in the coming years, through Macedonia will extend a modern highway, which is part of the international Corridor 10, in accordance with European and international standards.

To the public call for construction to rehabilitation of highway Veles-Katlanovo you can access via the link http://ted.europa.eu/udl?uri=TED:NOT...:EN:HTML&src=0

Yes. Actually, these days the prime minister announced in the media that in the next few years the government will built a motorway from Kichevo to Ohrid (I guess that due to the mountainous terrain the motorway will not continue from Gostivar to Ohrid or Struga, so Gostivar-Kichevo will remain a road with three or two lanes), and also a motorway from Veles to Shtip.

Both motorway should be finished till 2018, if everything goes well.

Correction from Skopje to Shtip via Sv. Nikole on a completely new route, not Veles - Shtip along the existing road.

Also I think that the segment between Gostivar and Kichevo is more important than the one from Kichevo to Ohrid because of the very bad road and Strazha mountain pass. I think this route even has a prepared project so if they have any common sense they will start with this section along with the 20km motorway in Ohrid region where the terrain is easy to build on.
