nice! the only thing i don't like are french terms - there is allready too much things because of cyrillic and latin letters, and then french (beside english, which is usual at exit signs) is weird. but nice signalization, finally good one there!

Damn, Chris, you beat me for a few hours. I really like the new section, there are a few things I first see by Macedonian motorways. You can find here a few night shots, with Skopje in the background. Here's also a nice video with the new bypass.

French seems to be important in Macedonia.

Nice work dear neighbours. For instance, do you know if any greek company takes part in the construction of these new roads? (I think in one of the posted images on a foot bridge there is a sign that has the name of the greek company TERNA written on it).

Nice to see it finaly completed (this section anyway)

The whole thing would have been completed a long time ago if not for our stupid laws (or lack there of) regarding compulsory purchase/expropiration, basically the only thing holding up the other section (and the reason they decided to open half a by-pass) is a dispute regarding a piece of farmland from which the owners it seems want to become millionaires I cant believe that even at this stage they havent resolved such issues The other section is I believe 90% complete and has been for a while....


Regarding the signs, well they are definately an improvement to what we currently have, but there seem to be several different shapes and sizes, the use of French on the signs and this is a part of corridor 8 and they should have looked a bit further than just Tetovo, ex. Ohrid and Tirana...

Yeah the Greek company TERNA built this particular section, the 26KM by-pass was split in 2 seperate sections and the greek firm TERNA won the section towards Tetovo, although I think they subcontracted a local company to do most of the works. They were a lot luckier in that they had no major expropriation issues and actually could have finished this section ages ago but slowed things down towards the end.

What is up with that French language? I'd never expected to see that anywhere east of France.

No idea, they've only started using it recently and i think they should stop it, completely unnecessary IMO.

i agree, there is kinda lack of destinations, it would be better to have them more instead of french

Is there some sort of Bulgarian highway thread or no?!

This is a thread about Macedonian highways and when I come here, I don't want to read about Bulgarian "issues"

The posts of @KM and @junkie are the perfect illustration of what I meant by using the term "schidzophreniacs"!

@junkie,look kiddo I'm almost sure that at the time you were born YU was no more and that you never visited Bulgaria,so please can you keep your baised opinion for yourself!

@KM are you a lawer of ex YU or something?I'm just interested cos we may end up being colleagues you know.
