Some sort of initiative for a new road link between Croatia, Serbia, Romania ... via the towns of Osijek, Apatin, Sombor, Kikinda and Timisoara:
It's still unclear when construction could begin or what category of road it will be.

Alpine Bau GmbH, Austria's second-biggest construction firm, filed for insolvency on Wednesday with liabilities of up to 2.6 billion euros ($3.5 billion) in what could become the country's biggest corporate collapse since World War Two.

Damn!

This has a major impact in central and southeastern Europe, where Alpine was quite active. It is Austria's second largest construction company after Strabag which isn't doing so hot either.

Handful of fresh photos from Belgrade's motorway bypass, where construction has significantly slowed down since the last elections ( )... aside from work on the Batajnica interchange, where there are even now some unresolved expropriation issues slowing down the pace of construction, some new maintenance work has just begun on two tunnels...hopefully, new cash infusion is on the way in the form of a Chinese line of credit

ILIC: Exim Bank to grant loan for Corridor XI soon

Wednesday, 06/19/2013|14:46 | Source: Tanjug

Quote:
Minister of Construction and Town Planning Velimir Ilic told Tanjug news agency on June 18th that Serbia would soon get a loan from Exim Bank to finance the work on Corridor XI.

- We were at a meeting in Exim Bank in a bid to accelerate the process of getting the loan and starting the work. The bank management agreed to finish that process in July if possible, so we could commence the work right away - said Ilic.

He stressed that there had been some problems that were to be solved between the contractor and the bank.

- But all this will be finished in few days, and we hope this will be first loan from a EUR 10 billion fund for southeast Europe. We will be the first to receive that loan - Minister Ilic concluded.

Ilic said to Tanjug that Serbian and Exim Bank representatives were negotiating a time when the money for Corridor XI construction would become available, adding that two more concession-based projects were going to be presented to Chinese investors.

Ilic earlier announced that the construction of two highway stretches on Corridor XI, from the Zemun-Borca Bridge to Obrenovac and from Cacak to Pozega, would be carried out through concessions.

Serbia May Replace Alpine as Highway, Rail Bridge Contractor
By Misha Savic - Jun 21, 2013 8:03 AM ET

Quote:

Koridori Srbije, Serbia’s state-run road development company, may replace a local unit of Alpine Bau GmbH as the highway contractor after the Austrian builder filed for insolvency.

Alpine is making parts of the Balkan nation’s north-south highway, with an eastern offshoot to Bulgaria, worth a combined 59.3 million euros ($78.4 million). Koridori may call new tenders complete the sections if Alpine confirms it can’t carry on, Belgrade-based company said in an e-mailed statement. The stretches with bridges and tunnels near the southeastern town of Dimitrovgrad are financed by the World Bank and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development.

Alpine, owned by Fomento de Construcciones & Contratas SA, also signed a 9 million-euro contract with Serbia’s national rail company Zeleznice Srbije in 2010 to build a rail bridge by August 2012.

The structure is only 20 percent complete, even after Zeleznice paid the full amount from a European Investment Bank loan, and the company is now “reviewing options how to proceed” with the project, said Nenad Stanisavljevic, Zeleznice’s spokesman in a phone interview.

From today's "Politika" website:

Serbia Green: Because of Corridor 11 will be cut centuries-old oak

Photo: foter.com

BELGRADE - The Party "Green Serbia" warned today that it plans to tear down an oak of old records and centuries of historical interest in the village Savinac, because it was on the route of the road Corridor 11

The construction of the route Belgrade - Preljina will be continued after the removal of the tree, whose crown extends to four fires, according to the brief communication.

The party points out that "civil engineers state that the collapse is inevitable, but say they are surprised that during the design was not considered the oldest and largest record, as the collapse could have been avoided."

Corridor 11 route also goes through elementary school and historical site Savinac, and moves to the riverbed and Dičine, added "Green Serbia".

The party states that "planners believe that the natural resources and historical complex of the Second Serbian Uprising where there is a monument to Prince Milos Obrenovic, could be protected if the highway would be dislocated a few hundred meters, but authorities refuse to do the necessary changes."

Damn!
Don't think of it as something unexpected. I'm not sure about other CEE countries, but we in Serbia have had major issues in dealing with Alpine Bau. I'm not saying this is exclusively their fault, however the matter of the fact is that I can't think of a single construction project in Serbia where Alpine Bau was hired as a major contractor that was completed as expected - regular delays, problems with the contracted price, etc.

The morale? When you are doing business the way Alpine does, you end up like this.

The problem is unsustainably low bidding at tenders. Most construction companies do it, weakening their financial position. Many constructors are willing to build for no profit or even for a loss.

When was the motorway from Novi Sad to Horgoš completed? I remember in 2009 it was only 2-lane road.

Don't know how many would appreciate it, but it would be a good image for a SSC banner.
I would give it 5/5. Ada bridge is really beautiful. It makes top 5 of my favorite bridges.

Hi, serbian forumers, I like a lot the photos of Belgrade Bypass. I have a question (well, do you know what? )

- What is the official date to finish Belgrade Bypass completely? I know that there are sections open.

- Is this the most expensive infraestructure that there are building in Serbia?

Thank you.

I've been travelling through Beograd last summer and there were really untouched sections of future ringroad (e.g. near Rakovica). Actually, it made me feel some residental buildings demolishions would be necessary.

By the way, I have one (maybe little provocative) question. It seems that Serbia has been updating traffic signs on highways recently. But where have the foreign destinations from signs gone? I haven't seen any last year. Instead Zagreb and Szeged, there were only Šid and Subotica. Why?
