A little bit about Belgrade's motorway ring-road...courtesy of Beobuild.rs:

Belgrade bypass project - August 2011
16 Aug 2011

Since they reopened construction on the bypass around Belgrade this spring, we bring you the latest report on progress of works on this large and important project. The continuation of construction has begun simultaneously at several locations - including Batajnica interchange and Dobanovci intersection as a part of sector 0, as well as three bridges and one tunnel on the sector 5.

The construction of Batajnica interchange is being built "full steam" and a number of pillars of the main construction are completed. This facility is of great importance, since its role is a new regulation of transit from Novi Sad going south. Upon completion of this interchange, the transit will be relocated away from entrance to Belgrade (part from "elbow" bend to the Batajnica bridge) onto the ring road. In this way, it is expected to significantly relieve northern approaches to Belgrade. Besides the main pillars of the viaduct they are building the entry/exit ramps downward in the direction of Dobanovci. All the structures to be operating in this sector are carried out in full profile, and the contractor is a consortium of Ratko Mitrovic and Planum. The builder and operator of the 1.5km long viaduct is company MBA that will build a 42,000 m2 construction. Batajnica interchange will cover 100ha and the value of this investment is estimated at 36 million Euros. With fresh photos from construction site, we are exclusively presenting renderings for this new crossing.

At the Dobanovci intersection the routing of entry and exit ramp was done completely. At the moment they are leveling the terrain and bridging the main flow of traffic on the highway Belgrade-Sid. The routing of section that will connect the Batajnica interchange with Dobanovci is also making excellent progress. The works on this sector are very active and this section of the bypass is already being built into the full profile of the highway.

The works are carried out with good intensity in the sector 5 as well. This sector will connect the Orlovaca interchange with Circular Road (Kruzni put). Currently, the most intense work is on building the pillars of bridges between the interchange Orlovaca and tunnel Strazevica. Three bridge constructions at combined length of almost 1300 meters will connect the right tunnel tube under the Strazevica with Orlovaca interchange. At the Strazevica tunnel they are completing the portal on the side of Resnik suburb. In addition to finishing works on the right tunnel tube, the construction of the access ramps that will connect bypass highway directly with the Resnik suburb is also underway.

Well if we have growth in the next period it will be finished by 2020, but if we have double dip, that is more likely, probably not before 2030.

Why so many viaducts on new motorways, i.e. on the so-called corridor XI, BG bypass, Nis-Dimitrovgrad etc?
Belgrade-Nis was built on not very different terrain, yet there are few, if any, viaducts.

But if you don't upgrade the beltway from 1x2 to 2x2, you'll have traffic delays on it. Consequently, transit traffic will return to the Gazelle bridge. Perhaps you can get the money for upgrading from European Union enlargement fonds.

Good luck with that... European coffers have been sealed so far, I expect them to remain that way for a long time.

That was before, we're late. Europe is broke now, there is no money left for us, but nevertheless we will build it piece by piece.

Update from the construction site Belgrade's second Danube bridge, where a number of Chinese workers are busy building accomodations and other infrastructure, in preparation for the arrival of a couple of hundred of their compatriots, who will be employed on-site once construction heats up in a few months...

This is the first such large infrastructure project in Serbia involving Chinese companies.
Hopefully not the last, as Serbia seeks to build new bridges, motorways, airports, high-speed railways and other infrastructure over the coming decade or so.

What's the stance of the Serbian people about this? Because, basically, the Chinese are doing jobs Serbians could do too.

Well, it is the Chinese Export-Import Bank that is financing 85% of the cost of building this new bridge with a very low interest loan. One of their conditions was that Chinese firms, in this case China Road & Bridge Corp (CRBC) acts as the main contractor on the job, while Serbian firms will act as sub-contractors.

The deal is very similar to what has already been taking place at another construction site - that of Belgrade's new Sava river bridge - where EU banks financing the project dictated that EU firms carry out the construction - Austria's Porr for example.

If Serbia was, lets say, an oil-rich country, and could finance these expensive projects itself, in that case a domestic company such as Mostogradnja, would be employed - its a firm that, quite frankly, could teach both Porr & CRBC a few things about building bridges

Some of Mostogradnja's references...

That's what is bugging me as well. They can do the project etc, but bringing in workers from China?! Wth? But that is something that can only happen in Serbia, with its ridiculous leadership, and its equally ridiculous votership that lets things like this happen and even keeps on electing the same idiots. You really have to ask yourself who the bigger idiot is, and for me answer is quite obvious...the politicians are the intelligent ones.

^ Plus, a problem with the Chinese is that because of the low bidding, they might not find so easy subcontractors and providers for materials (cement, steel for reinforcement and so on). I hope it won't be the case here. Anyway, good luck and I expect those regularly awesome updates.
