Why are they yellow in USA, no reason, it is just like that.

Most likely because part of the traffic was detoured last year due the damaged parts of the ring road.

Croatia changed yellow lines to white in March 2003 (new legislation), so probably the other ex-Yu countries did it at that time too...

According the statements of the Minister for Transport and Communications and the company Sinohydro, the highway Miladinovci-Shtip should be finished by the end of September 2018.

Quote:
To date, the Chinese contractor has managed to complete about 75% of the overall construction works on this highway. This project started in February 2014. The future motorway section should have seven interchanges, five subways, reinforced concrete bridge and five viaducts.

The prognosis for the deadline for the Kichevo-Ohrid aren't good at all. Some predictions mentioned 2020 and few hundreds of million Euros more for finishing the project.

I heard it would be 100 mil € more. Come on, the whole project costs 367 mil €. How could it cost double? Only if you build the entirely new stretch.
If there are some problems with landslides, it can be solved technically.

Well, 100 mil € for poor country like Macedonia are lot of money.

Anyway, the government officials said that the highway section Demir Kapija-Smokvica should be opened for traffic at the latest in March 2018.

I think it is only for road work signs as it happens in other european countries like for example Italy.

you've got to be kidding me, didn't they do anything else up to the local elections ? I would expect all roads in the country to be re-paved with electoral asphalt LOL:

seamless asphalt in the images. I think the other big problems has been the missing reflector posts for guiding during night.

I drove through some Albanian cities in FYROM and a lot of signs had yellow backgrounds about 5 years ago.

Probably they are old signs, which they didn't yet change. As you know in former YU it was standard. But as I saw in my last trips to MK they use now the white background, and the yellow ones for the road works.

AN EXPRESS ROAD STIP - RADOVIS WILL BE BUILT

The construction of the expressway from Stip to Radovis will begin in a month. The total length of this road is 23.5 kilometers, and the investment is worth around 28 million euros. Today Minister of Transport and Communications Goran Sugareski emphasized this at a press conference.

Below is an integral text from the address by Minister Sugareski:

Today, together with the Director of the Public Enterprise for State Roads, we will announce the project for construction of the expressway Stip-Radovish.

The investment cycle in the construction of capital projects we have announced continues in the next period. The construction of new roads and continuous improvement of the road infrastructure in the Republic of Macedonia remains a top priority of this Government.

We would like to inform you that we have signed an agreement for the construction of an express road from Stip to Radovish. The length of this road is 23.5 kilometers. According to the agreement, the construction will be done on a complete new route from the place Sofilary in front of Stip and to Bucim.

The agreement also provides for the maintenance of the complete section within five years.

The investment for the construction of this expressway is 28 million euros, and the funds are already provided through a loan from the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development. We expect the construction of the Expressway to start in a month and last for 3 years, that is, it will be completed by the end of 2020 or the beginning of 2021.

The construction of this road is of great importance for the inhabitants of the region. Considering that the traffic in the old regional route is taking place in difficult conditions in terms of security, there is a need for building a new road that will increase the quality of traffic in this part of the Republic of Macedonia.

Also, this expressway will be the extension of the Miladinovci highway - Stip, which we expect to be completed next year and we hope that this completely new traffic solution will contribute to reducing the time for transport of goods and passengers.

Is it a super two highway? The construction cost is only € 1.2 million per kilometer.
