The last video from Macedonia. M-1/A-1 from border with Greece to Skopje (Interchange M-3/A-3).

Nothing to applaud for... We still have those old communist lights along the main route, road signs etc... but also over aged pay tolls and equipment. I would not talk about the corruption in the state department who maintain the infrastructure. And yet this is the main international corridor so all other routes are in a very bad condition.

I have driven several times through Macedonia on E75 and don't think it is so bad. The only thing is old road marking, which is very dangerous and confusing (e.g. on places where was former end of motorway in past are still lines leading you to the wrong direction through the crash barriers).

And I have one wild experience: was driving on empty motorway calmly at 120 kmh near Kumanovo. I was in right lane when passing the light right curve. And suddenly there were shopping basket in the middle of left lane

Are they planning to build the hard shoulders where they are missing?

I don't think so, at least not in the mountainous parts of the highways where isn't enough space for that and it's too expensive.

I know many incidents where dogs have been hit by cars, when attempting to cross the highway lanes. So fences are just cut somewhere and they are also pretty old. I myself have seen such situation in Serbia also. Balkan

That was not funny. Ordinary trap of criminals and robbers. They leave used tyre, dog, or something on the road, and when you damadge your car, they are there in 5 mins to offer their help and to steal anything they can from your car.
During summer holidays you can see that scum on SRB, MK and roas of neighbouring countries.
On Fridays, they are on the rest area before Milano, cause they know that people go there for shopping.
Golden rule: at rest stops, don't leave your car out of your sight.

There are also Gypsies lieing on the road to make you think they need help. If you see one, just floor it and you see him running like hell!!!

An acquiatance of mine found a wooden log on the left lane on the E-75 in Serbia between Belgrade and the Croatian border.

I've heard of scammers puncturing tyres of cars parked in "Autogrill" in Italy and later they offer "help" and rob their victims. This is a real crime because if you enter the motorway with a flat tyre (you may realize it after few hundred meters you drive) you can't control well your car and cause a deadly accident.

I must say that I never met any story about all of the above mentioned cases in the Macedonian media. And that is something that a man would remember when he will read about it. I'm not trying to say that things like that never happened, but for me is highly unlikely to happen in the last few years.

Well, so far in the media I've read that the construction of the both of the highways will start in the first quarter of 2014...

Yes, the tender is still open (till the end of 2013), and we will know the best offer probably till the end of February 2014.

This is maybe a case, but still those countries have far better road infrastructure than the Balkan region including MK. You have so many relatively small countries, and cases where sometimes you lost 10 hours in order to pass some 200 km, I will point to an example from MK to Albania. All those political issues between everything what has been happening here is very bad and such issues like more investments and more cooperation between states for better road infrastructure are very low or not happening, so probabilities this things to be overcome and also going very slow.

Oh really? So I had luck then...

Well, there is a Czechoslovak site about "Greece by car" with some instructions how to drive to trough respective countries. Some cases about robberies were well described there. I absolved a road trip to Greece to Serbia first time by myself (and my fiancée who is not a driver) and I was indeed a little bit afraid.

Personally, i like people from Balkan. All my friend from there as well as people I've been in contact with were very very very kind and polite. But I have still great respect on driving in these countries at night.

It may sounds a little bit paranoid (maybe it was due to my first experience) but we never left our car out of the sight, never let stuff visible in car through windows and my fiancée even omitted to make her up. We were also waiting each other in front of toilettes when one of us had the need.

But during day, I feel totally safe. Major roads, those I was driving on, were in sufficient quality.

Btw. when I was with my parents first time in Macedonia, local dogs almost attacked us on unmarked roadside rest area. I was really surprised how fast they can run. I was shifting up to fourth gear, driving at 60 and the dogs were still pursuing us

In fact this is the real picture how foreigners see us. And btw when someone goes to road trip or pass by in western European states, hardly it will be so 'paranoid' about such things during the trip. But the facts are, crime is far higher in those states then in the Balkan region. And its obvious why, especially pointing to the old regime here. In fact maybe we have at least non comparably worse road infrastructure, but the crime is definitely lower then in the western states.

Personally, I do not believe in those small petrol stations and roadside rest areas in Macedonia. Resting on huge OMV petrol station in Serbia near Beograd is something else. Or maybe it is because I always end up driving through Macedonia at night, when the traffic is obviously low and I get that unpleasant feeling being on road alone

But don't worry about reputation. We had been always thieves for Austrians living near borders and now they like us, because it is very popular here to shop around there. Macedonia has huge potential indeed.
