I see the logo of Alpine on the bridge and also on that power generator. It is a joint venture there, or only the Austrians?
It's interesting that you say they moved very fast. These days the media in Serbia (and the general public for that matter, as far as I can see according to comment) haven't been so positive about the tempo of construction of that bridge. Headlines are all like - ''The Chinese have finished a 42 km long bridge in the same time we have constructed a 2 km one''. Someone would get an impression

On many forums people are praising the Chinese lately. Including the Romanian forums. I agree, they are doing wonders in their country, but here, in Europe, they have rules to follow, including the safety measures & norms and also very strict quality procedures (ISO and so on). The Party which tells you what to do and how to do it isn't an option here, that's why I really don't know many Chinese investments in European infrastructure. I know about a motorway in Poland but it became a complete failure and the Chinese left the site before completion. I know there are legal procedures there, the Chinese against Polish state and viceversa.
Anyway, I don't know if Beska bridge is on the right track or not, or if the time-schedule will be respected. But I'm always checking the Serbian forums and from the beautiful pictures CrazySerb is always posting my impression was that everything went fast.

Chinese companies invited to invest in road construction in Serbia

Quote:
Belgrade, 11 July 2011 – Minister of Infrastructure and Energy Milutin Mrkonjic today invited Chinese state companies to take part in the construction of Belgrade–Bar motorway and the modernisation of the Serbian railroad.




At a meeting with Chinese businesspeople and bank representatives, Mrkonjic voiced his belief that Chinese companies have an interest in the project to construct Corridor 10 and Belgrade–Bar motorway project, estimated at around €5 billion, as well as the modernisation of the Serbian railroad, estimated at €4.6 billion.

He said that two more tenders will be called for construction of sections on Corridor 10 in southern Serbia and invited Chinese companies to take part in this as well.

The Minister reiterated that almost 180 kilometres of the motorway will be completed by the end of the year, and that the plan is to finish the entire portion of Corridor 10 that runs through Serbia by mid-2013.

Representatives of the Chinese delegation underlined that they are open for negotiations and talks, but noted that it will be difficult to get more favourable loans such as the one obtained for revitalisation of thermo electrical power plant Kostolac.

Btw, speaking of bridges...there are now three U/C in Belgrade:

Two are over Sava river...


Surcin-Obrenovac bridge - opening later this year:
Is the bridge to be "single lane alternating' traffic? It certainly appears to be that way going by the above pic. There, the bridge deck APPEARS to be only 4 meters wide. Not that's a bad thing. Gives you an excuse to be late to work.

Look at the guy and the helmet on the far right, and look at the guy on the far left. It's wide enough for two lanes:

Here are two more pictures:

Construction of bridge across the Sava continues on February 2

Market News & Opportunities

Tuesday, 01 February 2011 21:14

Works on the bridge across the Sava, which will connect Obrenovac and Surcin, will start again tomorrow in Obrenovac. The six-year building of the Obrenovac bridge was discontinued in 1999 and Mostogradnja has been hired to continue its construction. The bridge structure, part of lanes, and the access road on the side of Surcin have not been finished yet, while works on access roads on the side of Obrenovac have not even started yet.

Steel part of the bridge across the river is 450 meters long, while another 180 meters on the side of Surcin will be built of reinforced-concrete segments, which will make the entire bridge structure 630 meters long.

The bridge will be 14.5 meters wide. There will be two traffic lanes, pavements on both sides and two belts for infrastructure installations. The bridge structure above the main stream of the river will consist of six steel grid structures, while the Sava river will be navigable for all vessels up to 16.5 meters high.

In addition to the bridge across the Sava, an access road will also be built on the territory of the municipality of Obrenovac, from the Valjevo road to the Sava river, while a branch road from the bridge to the regional road in Boljevci will be built on the territory of the municipality of Surcin.

The bridge across the Sava in Obrenovac is part of a longer road, so-called Srem's Gazela, which will go from the bridge to Dobanovci cloverleaf interchange on the highway. The significance of this road lies in shorter length of the road and time of travel and higher level of traffic safety.

It will take less than half an hour for drivers from Obrenovac to reach Belgrade-Zagreb highway via the bridge across the Sava and the territory of the municipality of Surcin, and it will also open a possibility for them to take the bypass around Belgrade. The Srem Gazela, from the bridge in Obrenovac to Dobanovci cloverleaf interchange, is about 20 km long and it is divided into three sections. Works are currently underway on the second section seven kilometers long.

One article has info in regards to traffic width:
Quote:
Kolovozna traka biće široka 6,5 metara, a imaće i pešačke staze izmeštene na konzolama, na kojima je ostavljena mogućnost i da budu postavljene cevi za toplodalekovod.
They mentioned that: The traffic section will be 6,5 meters wide.





However, one drawing appeared at bridge discussion at Beobuild forum showing traffic lanes to be 3,5 meters wide

So the first 28km section of Horgos(HU) - Novi Sad motorway was opened today, with the rest to follow by the end of August...


Quote:
28 km section of Corridor 10 opens for traffic

Belgrade, 15 July 2011 – The Ministry of Infrastructure and Energy announced that a 28 kilometre section of Corridor 10 in Serbia, from Horgos to Bikovo, has been opened for traffic.


The statement says that the new route of the motorway was first passed by Minister of Infrastructure and Energy Milutin Mrkonjic, accompanied by Milan Bojovic, director of "Putevi Uzice", the company that has won jobs in the construction of the northern branch of Corridor 10.

Mrkonjic praised the builders for a job well done and announced the completion of the motorway on the northern branch.

The whole section whose total length is 88 kilometres will be opened in early September, to connect the whole northern branch of 10 Corridor from the border with Hungary to Belgrade, whose a total lenght is 200 kilometres.

Mrkonjic also visited the Horgos border crossing with Hungary, the statement added.
Finally, later this year, not counting a few bottlenecks such as Beska bridge, we will have a full profile motorway between Belgrade & Budapest
