I think that "regional road" in this case is used more like "route".

The term regional road (or route) is used in a number of places to designate roads of more than purely local but less than national strategic importance in a country's highway network.

But, to be honest, I'm not that good in road classifications. When I posted that news, I just literally translated the text from Macedonian language.

The express road Veles-Kadrifakovo is finished. I drove it few days ago, these photos show the part that in my previous post was under construction. The horizontal signalization is also finished, only at some parts the vertical signalization is not placed.
The photos are from May 31, 2017. Maybe they are not posted here in the order they were taken, but the hosting on Imgur kind a mess them up.

I just hope that this doesn't reflect to the construction pace of the Demir Kapija-Smokvica section... There is a mistake in the article, it's not 50 billion but 50 million Euros.

Quote:
Greek construction firm fined 50 bln euros over FYROM highway

A corruption prosecutor has charged a construction company belonging to the Bobolas family with money laundering and fraud to the tune of 50 billion euros in connection with the construction of a highway in the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia.

The charges were leveled after the political opposition in FYROM lodged a complaint, prompting an investigation into the company’s activities by the European Anti-Fraud Office (OLAF).

According the TV channel 24vesti, the Demir Kapija-Smokvica section will be open for use in 4 months from now, if everything goes well with the investigation about the corruption scandal related with this project. The video is in Macedonian, but there are some nice shots of the section.

Well no.. Zaev has stopped the construction that was scheduled to open in 2018. The news is 2 days old. All Chinese and Russian investments will cease in the country.

That is not true. The construction of the Kichevo-Ohrid highway is temporary stopped due to series of problems that have arisen in the meantime.

The biggest problem is located in the design of the slopes on the highway that are rated as "flawed" at four sections of the highway.

Sounds familiar (Serbian A4, A1)

Is there any realistic plan when part Kicevo-Tetovo is going to be commenced?

Well my bad then despite that my source is: http://www.minareport.com/2017/06/21...ohrid-highway/

Could just be wrong..

Anyway, on 25th of May 2017 it was announced that 95 % of the section is finished. Can we expect it to open next summer ?

Just look at the photo from the article and you know it's anti-government propaganda.

We can't know for sure when it's going to be finished.

I advice exercising special caution about any news. This is Balkans and the things are very disruptive, volatile and violent. We have saw everything that can be seen and all of the news are propagated, specially state news should be avoided. Because they are biased and use speech of hate. There is no progress because the real problems are under the bed.

At the 13:00 minute on the video you can see the reconstructed section Kumanovo-Miladinovci of the A1 highway, and at 13:19 you can see the new pay toll u/c.

I found some recent video (June 17, 2017), at 9:43 minute you can see the current situation with the reconstruction of the section Miladinovci-Kumanovo.

As far I can see, only few kilometers have new asphalt.
