You place in french and english translations and leave out albanian. All you can do is laugh at the hipocrisy

That's sad. Language issues should never be visible on the signs. Signs should be clear for anyone using a road, not for language politics.

Are there any bilangual signs Macedonian/Albanian anyway? (like Kosovo has Albanian/Serbian signs).

I know there are cyrillic/latin signs, but the latin 'translations' still are in Macedonian

There are, but as I understand it does not apply to national roads such as the bypass. As you said until recently there wasnt even proper translation just a latinised version of the cyrillic.

Why are you guys now speaking about Albanian language? Road signs are and it will be in Macedonian an English (bypass French). Other languages only in the cities were majority is not ethical.

Finally I got a better upload speed so I decided to share some more pictures with you guys.

They were taken this spring on my trip to Greece.

M-1: Tabanovce -> Gevgelija (Greek border)





























The city in the last pictures is Veles, I think.

Yeah that looks like Veles, thanks for the pics wyqtor
BTW did you see any works on the bridges from Veles to the greek border, they have been fixing the bridges and next year the worst parts of the highway should get repaved.

Yeah, as a matter of fact there were some serious works on viaducts, with one-lane alternating traffic in 3 sections.

I have some pictures of those, I'll post them a bit later. Also, the old sections near Kumanovo need repair, they are a bit bumpy; you can see that in these photos. But still, it's really amazing that such a small and not quite rich country has an excellent, almost complete, motorway system. This makes other countries in EU (like my own - Romania) look really bad.

Lot of those roads were built during Yugoslavia and on the other hand Macedonia is transit country so it needs good network.

Gorgeous nature. Roads could be somewhat better though.

I read that some weeks ago the government started the construction of the motorway section Tabanovce (border with Serbia) and Kumanovo. According tot hat information the construction will last 18 months. It is a very good news, finally it will be faster to travel towards Greece as also Serbia is fastly building 22km of new motorway near the border with Macedonia.

I am wondering if the skopie bypass is finished yet, it should be since the thread about it was a long time ago.

That´s a great road, I would get shivers of joy driving on it, it looks amazing, only the crashbarriers arne´t that shiny for a very new road.

When I look at the asphalt and markings of the road I just can notice the big similarity with the Struma motorway because it is build by the Macedonian cmpany, Mavrovo.

Majority is not ethical? It's because of that that the language of 25.7% (official census) is being ignored and French is being used. If there was more room, Sanskrit would be used just so Albanian wouldn't be. And that photo with the Albanian language being used is from a municipality with a majority Albanian population.

Yeah, not in national roads because nationals of Macedonia, who are Albanian, don't drive there. Just the French.
