I used Google Translate, so I apologize for the bad translation...

In April will start the rehabilitation of the highrway Kumanovo-Skopje

From next month will begin the rehabilitation of the highway section linking the cities of Skopje and Kumanovo. The Minister of Transport and Communications, Vladimir Misajlovski, announced that at first will be reconstructed the route Kumanovo-Skopje.

"It's a big investment in cooperation with the IPA - funds. The entire project costs over 10 million euros. The first phase starts in April, and the next phase few months later, which means that in about 12 to 15 months we will have a reconstructed highway Skopje-Kumanovo" said the Minister Misajlovski. The rehabilitation of the road will take place in the section from Kumanovo to the village Miladinovci and will cover a total length of 23 km.

I found one good link in English concerning ongoing constructions and future plans for constructing highways and expressways in Macedonia.

That media is pro-government and elections are coming, so... I would be reserved to the promises of the politicians.

The border crossing is ok, no waiting or something like that.

The refugee camps are away from the crossing, so basically there is no problem for crossing the border.

What you mean with "open"? There are three road border crossings with Greece (Gevgelija - Evzoni, Bitola - Niki and Star Dojran - Doirani) and one rail border crossing (Gevgelija - Idomeni with Bitola - Florina pending to be reopened sometime). The border itself is a green border without fences or something like that. The only border fence was build around the rail border crossing Gevgelija - Idomeni (afaik the fence is only between the both rivers in that area, but correct me if this is wrong). And the border is not full of refugees, the are just at Idomeni at the rail crossing...

There is a definitively progress, but unfortunately there are no newer photos, since the terrain where construction works are ongoing is very hard and not easily accessible.

Oh, i see, thank you!
This means that the road will be given to traffic on time, right?

I was traveling to the southern part of the country today, so I've made few photos of the construction works near the Demir Kapija gorge. The photos were made in motion, so their quality is not the best.

I drove there three weeks ago. Veles - Demir Kapija is.. hmm.. let's say unconfortable ta drive in. Very very very uneven layer of asphalt. In some parts you have an impression that you are driving in the staiway..

Yeah, that section is desperate for reconstruction.

Meanwhile, let's enjoy in the ride on the Veles-Shtip road and the scenery around...



The part of this road that is u/c...



Video from the opposite direction (Shtip-Veles) of the construction works on the road...

Hi guys,

I deliberately write in English so that it is understandable for all foreign users. When do you expect to complete everything with the construction (Demir Kapia - Smokvica) and any other possible rehabilitation (Veles-Demir Kapia) of A1?

Section Demir Kapija-Smokvica it should be completed by the end of 2016.
There is no announcements for the section Veles-Demir Kapija.Except section Negotino-Demir Kapija will be reconstructed in a length of 8.5 kilometers.

Thanks. I am surprised to see though that the road Prilep-Bitolya-Ohrid/ branch towards GR border is not in the planned phase. At the same time you are already building a highway from Miladinovci to Shtip which can be reached from Veles too.
There is also an important road which is not present on the map, namely Prilep-Kichevo.

In addition, what are your plans with the upgrade of Kumanovo-Deve Bair?
