The Serbian government will decide on this proposal, following the evaluation by expert teams and the banks which are to check the financial remunerability of the project.

Ongoing work on Serbia's various Danube river crossings....

Pancevo bridge - long overdue improvement & expansion of access infrastructure:





















Meanwhile, some 10 kilometers upstream, Chinese construction crews are working hard on Belgrade's second Danube bridge, expected to open in late 2014 at a cost of almost ~200 million euros:

























And finally, after some delays caused by the typical red tape problems, construction work has begun on Novi Sad's new Zezelj road & rail bridge, being built at a cost of ~50 million euros.





Site prep is underway:

Maybe you ticked option "avoid highways", because it shows me that direction by highway.

Obviously, it is an error at Google

E-75 highway is fastest way to go for Subotica - Novi Sad

Northbound section is new, the old section used to be two-way but is now one-way. Also, some intersections near Novi Sad are freshly marked on Google Maps, and that caused a break in the availability for routing.

Works on two sections of Corridor 11 at full capacity

Quote:
Lajkovac, 29 June 2012 – Minister of Infrastructure and Energy Milutin Mrkonjic expressed satisfaction today with the pace of construction of Corridor 11 on the sections from Ub to Lajkovac and from Ljig to Preljina.


After visiting the construction works on the above-mentioned sections, Mrkonjic told Tanjug news agency that the works are being performed at full capacity and praised the work of local contractors who work on the Ub – Lajkovac section and of the Azerbaijani company Azvirt that builds the motorway from Ljig to Preljina.

He specified that Corridor 11 is to connect Romania, Serbia, Montenegro and Italy through the route Timisoara - Belgrade - Bar - Bari, noting that the section Ub - Lajkovac, 12.7 kilometres long, is part of the future motorway to Montenegro.

The Minister said that on this section, which is financed from the state budget, 13 bridges will be built, of which five big ones that will be between 100 and 500 meters long, an intersection near Lajkovac and follow-up facilities, and the works are carried out by the companies "Putevi Uzice" and "Planum ".

According to him, Serbia received a €300 million loan from the government of Azerbaijan for the construction of the section from Ljig to Preljina, at a fixed interest rate of four percent to 15 years and a grace period of three years, while €8 million will be provided by Serbia.

Mrkonjic explained that the route consists of three sections: Ljig - Boljkovci, Boljkovci - Takovo and Takovo - Preljina, adding that the main contractor is the Azerbaijani company Azvirt, while about half of work will be performed by local construction companies.

Why so much time? I don't think I ever spent more than 5 mins when I crossed into HU, SR, BG.

Maybe because tomorrow is 1st July, many people go on their vacation (including Turks from Germany). Other thing is that Serbia is not EU member and Hungarian police check passports in detail...

It may be the cause of high traffic indeed, when checking documents becomes quite time consuming.

Zdravo and Hello to everybody,

I am new to this forum. Originally I am from Hungary, but I travel a lot on Serbian roads and highways.

I have the following questions:

1) the "Chinese bridge" in Beograd will connect what parts of the city? Looking at the maps it is just not clear.

2) the new ringroad (obilaznica) around BGD actually looks quite a lot longer than the old road across the Gazela bridge in the city center when transiting on the E75. Can you confirm that it is actually longer in distance and time? How much might be the difference - has someone tested it?

Thank you.

It is the guest workers who travel to their country of origin (mostly Turkey, but also Albania, Serbia, Macedonia and Greece) at this time of the year.

Getting through the border on the E75 from Hungary to Serbia might take a few hours, simply because these people invade the route within a relatively concentrated time frame. On selected weekends six times as many cars pass the border than on an average day -- you simply cannot build infrastructure and capacity to cope with such surges.

In August the direction of the invasion changes, and the waiting times are even longer, because Hungary is a Schengen-border, i.e. the outer border of the whole Eurpean Union, so data registration and customs control have to be made painstakingly thoroughly.

Here is a link to the expected heavy days on the Hungarian-Serbian borders, based on historical data and the school finishing dates in various Western-European states, which seems to have the largest impact on the flux of guest workers.

The text is in Hungarian, but you'll be able to understand the chart.

(The text itself is about some shortcuts, and the author mentions alternative border crossing points, but all of them are for Hungarian and Serbian citizens exclusively, except for Tompa-Kelebija.)
