Yes, this is true, but I do not think that Bulgarian authorities intend to build a motorway connection there. Their main intention is to create a motorway route between Skopje and Sofia along the Corridor 8.

Corridor 8 - new road from Rankovce to Bulgarian border

[IMG]http://oi61.************/2vnmno4.jpg[/IMG]

Completely new roadbed from Rankovce to Kriva Palanka is to be constructed with World Bank funds. The Government is already negotiating with the international financial institution and the project is expected to be approved in the fall.

This was stated by Vice Prime Minister and Finance Minister Zoran Stavreski at the observance of 93th establishment anniversary of the Economic Chamber of Macedonia.

Corridor 8 and 10 are our priorities. The news is that the Government is holding advanced negotiations with World Bank regarding financing of Corridor 8 sector from Rankovce towards Bulgarian border. We expect for World Bank to approve the project in the fall, so that a completely new roadbed from Rankovce to Kriva Palanka will be financed in the first phase, followed by reconstruction of the road leading from Kriva Palanka to the Bulgarian border in the second phase, as well as intensified construction of the railroad to Bulgaria, Minister Stavreski said.

He also added project paperwork for the railroad from Kicevo, Macedonia to Lin, Albania is being prepared and that funding negotiations of the project are being held with the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development and the European Investment Bank.

Can you give more details of the design? Is it grade-separated, dual carriageway?

That can be classified as a single carriageway 1+1 with a hard shoulder. I've seen many such roads in Greece.

This is somewhere between Rankovce nd Kumanovo (heading to Kumanovo) in 2011. That part of the road is pretty nice, some yugoslav new style magistrala which i guess was built in the 70-ies or even 80-ies.



I do not remember a speed limit, since i also do not remember almost any signage on that stretch at all, but one could easily drive 100 km/h and more (on such fine weather conditions and almost no traffic).

Deve Bair - Kriva Palanka - Rankovce was another thing...

i guess things didnīt have changed since i took the picture.

– Speed up to 100 km/hour

– Total planum is 12.50 meters

lane 2x 3.50 =7.00m
hard strip 2x 0.25 =0.50m
hard shoulder 2x 2.50 =5.00m

IMHO a single carriageway with 4 lanes would be much more effective:

NEWS 26 MAR 15

New Tapes Show Macedonian PM Fixing Cuts

The opposition says its latest tapes show the Macedonian Prime Minister solicited millions of euros from companies as sweeteners while fixing tendering procedures.

Sinisa Jakov Marusic BIRN Skopje

At the 14th opposition press conference devoted to wiretapping allegations in Macedonia on Thursday, the Social Democrats released tapes that allegedly feature the voices of Prime Minister Nikola Gruevski and his associates discussing taking cuts worth millions of euros.

One batch of tapes reveals what appears to be the voices of Gruevski and Transport Minister Mile Janakieski discussing how to extort a hefty 25 million euro from a company that had been selected to construct two motorway stretches.

The opposition said the cost of the two stretches of road from Miladinovci to Stip and from Kicevo to Ohrid, currently being built with a Chinese loan of 580 million euro, was intentionally inflated so that extra illegal profits could be made.

The opposition said the tapes reveal how Gruevski, after arranging the construction of the first stretch for 270 million euros, later intervened with the same firm to build the other stretch from Kicevo to Ohrid.

The voices of Gruevski and Janakieski can be heard discussing taking a cut of 5 per cent on the cost, or 15 to 18 million euros, for the Kicevo-Ohrod stretch and a total of over 25 million for the two stretches of motorways.

"Will they accept this much?" Gruevski's voice asks. "Well, if we tell them, they will... following the same analogy as before," Janakieski replies. "Try 15, see how they will react and then call me," Gruevski decides.

The two voices appear concerned to keep the matter under wraps. "Be very careful... choose your words, so we do not get entangled, so that if they have us on something [recorded], they cannot make a strong case" Gruevski's voice tells Janakieski.

The Macedonian parliament ratified the deal to build the two stretches of motorway, financed by the Chinese loan, on October 25, 2013. Construction began in February 2014.

Opposition Social Democrat leader Zoran Zaev told the press conference on Thursday that for the Kicevo-Ohrod stretch alone, the price was finally set at 373 million euro, which was 103 million euro more than the price proposed in a study carried out by Macedonia's Enterprise for Building and Maintenance of Roads.

"Do we need more evidence to realize what kind of actor is leading our country? Gruevski, you still have a chance to resign willingly and release Macedonia," Zaev said.

Another two tapes include talks between Gruevski and Janakieski in which they prepare to fix the tender for the construction of the railway line from Kumanovo to Beljakovce, part of a wider plan to link railways in Macedonia to those in neighbouring Bulgaria.

In the tapes, Gruevski appears to speak using codes, using only the first letters of the countries from where the firms applying for the work come - Germany, the Czech Republic and Austria.

The two men to try to pinpoint one firm they could contact and negotiate with.

"Can we go with the second one... We should avoid talking to someone and then telling him that he has flaws. In that case, he will start blabbing," Gruevski tells Janakieski.

Construction of the line worth some 50 million euro begun in March 2014 and was awarded to a German company.

Another tape reveals a conversation between Gruevski and what appears to be the head of the State Power Plant in the town of Bitola, Vlatko Cingovski.

Gruevski can be heard instructing Cingovski how to help Goran Ivanovski, the owner of Sitel TV, a prominent pro-government TV station, win a tender for coal extraction.

"Help them somehow... You should see them and organize something so that everyone is satisfied... You know why the man from Kratov [a small town] is so important to us," Gruevski tells Cingovski.

Cingovski's voice later explains that one firm has to be chosen and that the best way to satisfy all the aspirants would be if they all formed a consortium.

Ruling VMRO DPMNE dismissed the latest SDSM revelations saying that "Zaev is trying to distract the public and avoid responsibility for his own scandals and crimes through constructed materials placed in a manipulative context. This will not help him."

"Justice and truth will catch up with him and he won't be saved by some cut materials or foreign centres. Today's allegations by Zaev are utterly tendentious, untrue and completely manipulative," VMRO DPMNE said in a press release.

Zaev started revealing his tapes last month, accusing the Prime Minister and leader of the ruling VMRO DPMNE party of orchestrating the surveillance of some 20,000 people in the country. He maintains that he obtained them from sources in the country's intelligence services.

Gruevski has insisted that the tapes were created by unnamed "foreign secret services" in collaboration with the opposition in order to destabilise the country.

Yes, most of us know that he is a bad politician, but let's keep this thread for news and photos related with the road network in Macedonia. OK?

Thats not Prilep-Veles its Prilep-Gradsko and its one of the worst roads in the country excluding this part of 2+1 just before and after Pletvar pass. The other three are obviously Debar-Mavrovo, Kumanovo-Kriva Palanka and Stip-Kocani-Mak Kamenica

A two-week-old video from the Serbian-Macedonian border to the Miladinovci intersection. You can see that on some sections the Kumanovo-Skopje motorway is in terrible condition.
