It looks great, but I am not sure why they didn't use the old expressway as one lane of the motorway, and then just build another one?

As far as Veles-Bitola expressway is concerned, it's a shame.
As far as I know, Bitola is the second largest town in Macedonia, but it will be still cut out (in some way) from the rest of the country, since the existing road is in very poor condition.

I totally agree with you on Bitola situation, and I hope that in near future thing will change. There are some proposals for building express way from Bitola to the Greek border, but so far they are just thoughts, nothing more.

The highway mostly runs through Albanian-speaking areas, so that's maybe why this highway is going to be constructed before Veles-Prilep-Bitola.

@bigic I think you made a mistake, Vardar valley is almost entirely Macedonian speaking.

Oops, I made a mistake, but A2 (Skopje-Ohrid/Struga) is of great importance to Albanian minority because it connects Struga area, which is mostly Albanian, with the Albanian areas of Tetovo and Gostivar.
I thought it was A2 when I saw the discussion...

Thank you.
In Ohrid you should visit the old town (lots of old churches and nice architecture, restaurants, museums, souvenir shops, etc.) Also, nearby Ohrid (about 30 km towards the Albanian border) you should visit the St. Naum monastery.

The road Ohrid-Debar is in good condition, since it was renovated last year. Near Debar you should visit two monasteries - Rajčica monastery and St. Jovan Bigorski monastery

I can't tell you what to visit in the village in Rechane since I've never been there. Kichevo is just a small town with nothing special to see (maybe there are some sacral buildings, like monasteries and mosques nearby the town).

Near Debar there is the Debar lake and beautiful mountains, so I think you will enjoy the scenery while driving or traveling.

The road Debar-Kichevo is not in the best condition. Some parts of the road Debar-Mavrovo were renovated last year, but Mavrovo-Kichevo were not, so drive carefully because there might be lot of traffic in the section Gostivar-Mavrovo-Kichevo.

Looking at pictures, maps and surrounding terrain it does not look that old expressway has a layout good enough for being one half of new motorway.

why not? whole ex-YU road 1 has been upgraded in that way, except parts currently u/c in Serbia and Macedonia. even famous Slovenian section Grosuplje - Ivančna Gprica

That was a huge mistake. Every time I drive from Ljubljana to Zagreb the old expressway part (Grosuplje-Višnja Gora) is the most scariest part of this motorway, especially the downhill to the exit Višnja Gora and the same exit (of course in Zagreb direction). Macedonians made the only possible decision.

You're wrong, it the case of the section Pojate - Nis. There the highway was built alongside the existing old road.

New half was built on other side of the hill (about 3 km away). Eventually they will add second second half and the old alignment will be left for local traffic.

This Macedonian section looks even more curvy than Slovenian counterparts so it is really not suitable for modern motorway standards.
