^ First of all, thank you for the pictures of those impressive bridges.

Second of all, and sorry if someone else already put the question and get an answer, but why they chose to build first section of the motorway between Ub and Lajkovac? The road is more congested there or there is another reason?

I'm not 100% sure but I believe that has to with land expropriation - Ub-Lajkovac was probably the first section where it was completed. Also, they still haven't made up their mind concerning the route of the Belgrade-Obrenovac motorway (sections 1&2 on the previous map)...whether it should run down the left or right bank of the Sava river:

Since this has already been a bridge-heavy page, here are a few photos of the ongoing reconstruction work on Belgrade's Gazelle bridge - the city's busiest (~160k AADT)

Here's the text from 'Blic' daily newspapers about the quality (or rather a lack of) of Serbian road network. It's in Serbian, but I provided a google translation. I made corrections where necessary.

Quote:
Our roads worst in the region
5 Jun, 2011 - 13:49 News Comments (17) English

Hundreds of millions of euros are spent on maintenance of roads in Serbia and they are still mottled with black sections. The worst roads are in Pirot, according to a survey of International Association of road safety. International Road Assessment Programme in Serbia (IRAP) has estimated that only one section of Corridor 10 deserves a passing grade, while the World Bank has given to the Serbian roads 134th place by quality and value on the planet.

The general impression is that the roads in Serbia is among the worst in the region. "I every hole in the way of pain," said Minister of Infrastructure Milutin Mrkonjic that, despite all the real terms, consider that the roads in Serbia to the European average, but that they "need more investment in routine maintenance."

However, numerous studies, but the experience of drivers on the ground suggest otherwise. Perhaps one of the best roads in our assessment of it given by the World Bank.

"Roads in Serbia by the quality and safety until the 134th place on the list of the World Bank, and its value is estimated at 13 billion dollars, "was assessed in the study of this institution.

The Cashew Road of Serbia ", the company that answers for the state of the roads in the country, a year being left at least 300 million euros. That income, according to Zoran Drobnjak, Director of the company, about 150 million of toll collection, which is about 180 million of excise taxes. When asked where all the money goes, Drobnjak corresponds to invest in a landslide, the design of Corridor 10 highways.

"In order to regularly maintain all 11,000 kilometers of roads, need at least two billion euros a year, and there would certainly be good roads. The road nothing has invested 20 years. It is made mostly what is financed by European banks," says " flash "Zoran Drobnjak, director of" Roads of Serbia ".

He states that "Roads of Serbia" a year invested in maintenance and rehabilitation of our roads between 17 and 18 billion dinars (170 to 180 million euros), while refusing to say in these affairs of a company, such as "Nibens group, headed by controversial and recently arrested businessman Milo Đurašković, were favored.

The situation is not great even when it comes to building new roads. For three years, only 60 were built for seven years, 144 kilometers. Road construction is burdened by corruption, a construction project of the European Corridor 10, fell into a number of irregularities, says Milica Trifkovic, managing director of private companies to build roads "GEOPUT. She decided to draw attention to the European institutions. In an interview for the news site of the European Union "Trend", pointed out that in many tenders give priority to certain domestic companies, but also to many routes of great importance there are no construction projects or project documentation.

Ibar highway, section by Sevojno and Pozega, the path that leads to Homolje mountains, time-Zlatibor Uzice, are just some of the sections where the pavement condition due to poor or inadequate security solutions drivers questioned. In the opinion of Milan Bozovic, a professor at the Faculty of Transport, najnebezbedniji routes in the country are Ibar highway and direction of the New e. to. For most of the time since the New e. to there is only one lane, while in the opposite direction, drivers are available for two (plus one extra). So, part of Corridor 10 has three traffic lanes, two in the direction of Novi Sad, and one in the direction of Horgos.

Bozovic, however, said that the Serbian roads are the worst in the region.

"Roads of Serbia was necessary to devote special care, in terms of traffic safety in the design, maintenance, reconstruction and construction of roads and thus cause an increase in traffic safety," said Bozovic.

Security experts draw attention to the sloppiness road workers, but also the fact that the law protects them from liability for accidents. More in 2009. was found that there are even 262 black spots on Serbian roads.

Security parameters in terms of risk of traffic accidents in our country are not as bad as the bad roads, said Krsto Lipovac, a professor at the Police College.

Specifically, drivers compensate for deficiencies in the way, so it made so. compensation for risk, ie. change the behavior of the parts of the times that are obviously bad and unsafe. Especially reducing the speed on these sections. Our study shows that the road is obviously dangerous parts of rare accidents, and that the most dangerous in the hidden shares. Our first recommendation is therefore to be regular, annual process of identifying hot spots and dangerous sections, and that they immediately mark, so as to be easily identifiable to drivers - says Lipovac.

Serbia in the period 1992nd - 2010. had increased the number of injured in road accidents by 6.9 percent. During that time, many European countries have managed to reduce the number of killed and injured in accidents, and the best results had France - as much as 50 percent.

The worst results in terms of number of traffic accidents during the 1991st - 2010. with Romania (+227.5 percent), Slovenia (+67.3 percent) and Bulgaria (+65.0 percent).

Corridor 10 - What is currently being done?
Corridor 10 works are currently taking place only in certain sections between Belgrade and, e. the bypass around Belgrade and Dimitrovgrad and the lower part near the Macedonian border. On the most difficult and most difficult sections in Grdelica gorge, as well as part of the corridor from Nis to Pirot, no work has not even begun. Most of the work in. On the section that begins on the 14th kilometer from Horgos to Novi Sad workers are finishing a long section of 700 meters, and minor works are carried out every few miles to Novi Sad. The Company's "Corridors of Serbia'' says it will complete section Horgos - Novi Sad will be completed by 20 July, and it announced, Oliver Dulic, Minister of Environment, Energy and Mining.

Taken from: Blic.rs

So, obviously the road network needs 4 times bigger investments than those that are annually allocated now. What's even worse, the real question is how much of that money spent today really ends up being spent on actual roads, and not some 'businessman's' or politician's pocket.

Without the intent of starting a political debate I ask for my curiosity:
- were there any bridges in Belgrade thorn apart by the NATO bombardments in 1999?

Please answer the question, not the bombardments issue.

I dont know in detail, thought I googled out this:

BRIDGES (50 destroyed and 13 damaged): All primary bridges over rivers in Kosovo and Serbia have been hit, including a bridge in central Serbia struck on May 30, killing 11 people and injuring 40 traveling on their way to the market to buy groceries.

web

wiki says: Not counting the Đerdap dams on the Romanian border, Pančevo Bridge was the only bridge over the Danube in Serbia that wasn't destroyed by the NATO aviation during the bombing of Serbia from March 24 to June 12, 1999.


There is Ostruznica bridge: http://wikimapia.org/13396182/Ostruznica-Bridge


This motorway bridge pircture is from Novi Sad around 70 km north of Belgrado. web



There are images of some targets of Operation Allied Force, some bridges are there too: http://www.fas.org/irp/imint/kosovo-01-04.htm
