Yes, and not only that, but it's one of the longest bridges in Europe!

It has also been listed as one of the longest bridges in the world!

According to that Wiki list, this is the longest bridge across Danube.

the brigde you're mentioning is 2,223.52m long (see the article you linked), the Beška bridge is 2250 meters according to the list of biggest bridges. But when I check the page of the bridge itself, the bridge is 2205 meters... Typo?

ok, being at the bottom of that silly list is not a big deal
i say silly list because they have put a plenty of viaducts. for instamce Croatian viaduct Drežnik is really funny to see on the list among Storebaeltsbroen, Golden Gate or Akashi Kaikyo. and if they have finally put some viaducts, there are plentys of long viaducts in Italy which are not mentioned. Italy would simply flood that list if they would have put it.

Well, maybe, but I think that list is correct. The bridge is impressive which is the most important thing.

If you really wanna see a record breaking bridge, then consider looking at this engineering masterpiece...

The largest single column bridge ever created:

Maybe construction of the house has been started long before they decided the highway will pass there, and then it was stopped when the land was expropriated...? The house is as well to near and facing the railway which is also quite unpleasant place to live, especially if the railway is frequently used... But people live in quite worse places.

Blast from the past...construction of Belgrade's Gazelle bridge, 1969/70.
As part of the city motorway, the bridge has in recent years seen some ~160,000 vehicles daily. Since last year, it has been under complete reconstruction - it was just annouced that as of November 15th, it will once again be fully usable.

somehow i have the feeling that engineers are too lazy to project such spans today. it is much easier to make large pylon and suspend or cable-stay the bridge. bad thing is that publicity prefer suspension and cable-stayed bridges because they are more attractive, although bridges with large single spans as Gazela deserve to be praised much more because of more complex building procedure.

i think that house was expropriated and will be destroyed as you can see the owner has already took the roof away.

About one month ago i've been on the Horgos - Novi Sad Motorway and i joined the new opened sections. What i've missed were traffic signs for the motorway. Heading to Novi Sad you had still the old ones, as it was just a expressway (blue colored), and heading to Horgos weren't any kind of signs installed. How's the actual status? Has this motorway a number apart of E75?

Btw: It's a nice motorway. Good Work!

Those blue expressway signs are being replaced by green ones for motorway on Novi Sad-Horgos motorway. There is no national numbering of motorways in Serbia yet (just European E-70, E-75...).

According to the german wikipedia article about motorways in Serbia they should have numbers.

For example: M22 -> Horgos-Novi Sad (wtf? why M22 and not M2?)
M1 -> HR-Belgrade-Nis-MK

Those are the Yugoslav road numbers.

I also once saw a list of A1 - A3 but they are not signed. The Serbian motorway numbering system bugs me, especially now more projects are getting started it makes sense to number them according to a logical system.

Well, I am under impression that some people in charge are afraid of making changes, taking initiative, actually do something ... except of just showing at the workplace.

In the previous government lead by DSS, this ministry was controlled by highly incompetent Mr. Velja Ilić. It was just waste of time, for Serbian motorways.

The current government had to compromise with SPS, and to hand them over this ministry. The Minister himself is an enthusiastic, optimistic, positive person ... however he failed to get rid off, or to train for the job a part of work force that he inherited (and really needed to be trained).

There should be an election next year. So there is a possibility of some personal changes, to get more pro-active people there.

No-one needs to reinvent the wheel. Many good things can be simply copied from Croatian, Hungarian ... Motorways.

I read this article: http://www.kurir-info.rs/vesti/drust...bra-131626.php

When will the Horgoš-Beograd motorway be fully completed? Will there be anything left to do after the complition of the section north of Novi Sad?
