In the last few weeks Skopje's ring road is closed for traffic.

Reason: More than 280 vehicles from Macedonia, as well as 280 drivers have been included in the filming of the French movie 'A Fond' at Skopje's ring road, Telegraf.mk reports.

Most of the citizens of Skopje are pissed off to the authorities that give permission for that. All of the traffic is diverted trough several boulevards in Skopje, and the city is literally paralyzed. I just hope that the French movie isn't shooting some five seconds scene for whole month closed ring road.

More good news - The World Bank approved 83 million Euros for the construction of the road Rankovce-Kriva Palanka. The construction works should start in the spring of 2016. The public tender should be announced soon.

The road has length of 26,5 km and it's going the be 2x2 profile (only one part of the road, while the other will be reconstructed). The construction should end in 2019.

This road is part of the Corridor 8 that connects Bulgaria (via Macedonia) with Albania.

I guess it will be a simple dual-carriageway with at-grade intersections, won't it?

so, Rankovce - Kriva Palanka is only 20km according to google maps. Till Deve Bair (b/c with Bulgaria) itīs 36km. So can we expect a new road between Rankovce and Kriva Palanka and kind of a Kriva Palanka bypass? That option seems somewhat logical due to the 26,5km to be built.

What is going to happen with Kumanovo-Rankovce? Thatīs a pretty well built "yugoslav" magistrala, partly even 2+1. Judging by some satellite pictures it seems even level free interchanges were planned (but not realised) on this stretch. Is it going to be ugraded to 2+2 also? Everything else wouldnīt make much sense...

I believe that the current road Rankovce-Kriva Palanka will be extended into dual-carriageway, since it's going through flat terrain and the construction would be cheaper and easier.

Kumanovo-Rankovce will be reconstructed and probably expanded with additional lane (from 2+1 into 2x2, or even into dual-carriageway).

Anyway, in the moment there aren't enough information about this project, only some short announcements in the media.

We've got the look of the Rankovce-Kriva Palanka road. Unfortunately, it's not going to be dual-carriageway, but 2-way road with hard shoulders... I'm very disappointed.

2+1 would've been a safer option?

At some parts the road is already 2+1. I really don't know what they were thinking when proposed this.

Parts of Macedonia are now available on Google Street View.

Great news! Although it just the main roads and some cities covered. However, it's nice to see

I just checked the construction of motorway from Kichevo to Ohrid (A2) and I "dicovered" that in the south they "just" upgrade the existing road to 2x2. Not that is bad in general, but this section misses any other road which could and would handle the local traffic. So, how will be dealt with farmers, bikes and so on? Access control?

I recognize the fact that your country as well as the Greek Macedonia, part of Bulgaria and a tiny part of Albania belong to the ancient Greater Macedonia region and I would like your country to join intergovernmental organizations in the near future......I'm just against the use of the name Macedonia for your country and some other things that have to do with that topic......but you know what? That's off topic, the thread is about highways and not about political disagreements......
Just to clarify my position, thank you

It's from here towards the north: https://goo.gl/maps/hGYhPFfB2VJ2

Further south there are no visible construction works or at least I didn't see them.
