There are several projects in Hungary, part of them even already built - like M43, M60 & M9. Maybe AADT is higher in Hungary...

However, I would like to see both routes developed.

Terrain through Sicevo gorge had to be cut through many points, so that provided possibility to absolutely follow the river and have no incline/decline sections. There already was a local road to village of Sicevo and one to Ostrovica, so the only bigger problem was section in Gradishte canyon, where all tunnels are.

This road was opened in 1964. My grandfather was a truck driver for all of his life, and his company was based either in Bela Palanka or in Nis. According to him, routing the road through the gorge made it a lot faster to that-time transport vehicles, as incline sections over Ploche were just too hardcore at that time. Cutting tunnels under Ploche would be megalomaniac attempt (even nowdays, so that's the answer why motorway passes south of Ploche with only one 700m tunnel at Bancarevo).

In late 1950ties, constructing a new road on the route of todays motorway (in construction) would be probably as expensive as cutting the road through remaining parts of Sicevo gorge. From the other hand, Sicevo gorge seems the most logical route and it also follows railway constructed in 1887.

This project (Timisoara-Belgrade) would definitelly open up an alternative to the Hungarian route through Budapest, because it is a much shorter route to south Europe - Italy first of all. Romania alone exports EUR 6 billion/year worth of stuff to Italy, and all these goods will most probably take this route once it gets built.
With the motorway section costs below EUR 1 billion, I think it is worth it.

But anyway, there is need first for a FS to assess its viability. It's a distant project at any rate.

Some news from Novi Sad area...

Quote:
Tenders invited for bridge across Danube-Tisa-Danube Canal on Europe Boulevard
Wednesday, 09/18/2013|15:50 | Source: Radio 02

The Novi Sad City Development Institute (ZIG) has issued a Request for Proposals for the construction of nearly RSD 1 billion worth of bridge across Danube-Tisa-Danube (DTD) Canal on Europe Boulevard.

Bid opening is scheduled for early October.

Goran Visnjic, the director of this company, says that despite all the adversity faced in the construction of the fourth stretch of Europe Boulevard, implementation of this strategically important project has never been interrupted on a stretch from Rumenacki Road to DTD Canal.

- However, ZIG had to terminate two disputable agreements with Borovica on the construction of the bridge and a boulevard stretch from the canal to the highway - said Visnjic.

Tender deadline has since been extended to 23rd of October - still no news.

Financing of initial phases of Novi Sad-Ruma motorway, with a tunnel under Fruska Gora, agreed upon...Google-translated:

Quote:
Highway NS - Ruma and Frushka tunnel through the mountain to 2017.

Minister of Regional Development and Local Government Igor Mirović and Prime Minister of Vojvodina Bojan Pajtic agreed to co-finance preparation of technical documentation for the construction of a tunnel through the mountain Frushka . Protocol on Cooperation will be signed in the next two weeks , which will begin the first phase of the realization of capital investments.

The importance of the corridor Novi Sad - Ruma the tunnel is what will finally solve the problem of huge freighters passing through Fruska up through Irig, where goes the busiest roads in Serbia with an average daily transits from 10,000 to 12,000 vehicles - Pajtic .

The estimated value of works is at least 57 million, and how much money will be needed , will be known only after a complete technical project documentation.

- The removal of any value to the public prior to the development of technical documentation is conjecture and speculation - as stated in the Ministry of Regional Development and added that are yet to be agreed upon from which the source of finance works .

According to previous calculations, the Fund for capital investment, the construction of a tunnel would cost 38 million euros, and the expansion of the existing road from the Romanian border via Zrenjanin and Novi Sad and Ruma will need 19 million.

Length of the Novi Sad - Ruma with a tunnel of 27 kilometers and passes through three municipalities , Novi Sad and Ruma Irig with about 400,000 residents , and operates nearly 30,000 businesses. In the vicinity of the highway and 12 industrial and one free zone . According to earlier plans , the construction of the tunnel and the highway would take about 30 months , which would , in ideal conditions , when the construction starts next year , it would mean that the works will be completed to 2017. year.

The plan works
- Length of the Novi Sad - Ruma 27 km
- Length of tunnel :
Variant 1) 1,233 m
Variant 2) 2,790 m
- The deadline gradnje30 months

Two versions of the construction of the tunnel
PROJECT - More there are now two projects and two variants of the tunnel. According to the first , the tunnel would be 1,233 meters long and would cost 30 million euros and the second 2,790 meters and would be more expensive for 10 million euros. Whatever the cost , experts believe that the second option is preferable because the effect would be greater in the traffic and environmental terms , as the National Park is protected from exhaust gases.

And by far the best news this week - Serbia's traditionally foot-dragging & incompetent government has finally fulfilled its obligations in regards to the previously mentioned Chinese loan for construction of two sections of Belgrade-Bar motorway totaling some ~50km - namely, its share of the funding, equal to about ~10% of the entire value. Work can start within a few weeks from the time the first tranche is paid.

Belgrade - Minister Velimir Ilic said the budget proposal provided the participation of Serbia of about three billion for the construction of Corridor 11 Chinese loan funds.

He said that the work would start no later than early next year.

The Ministry of Construction and Urban Planning will in 2014 , is projected to dispose of 4.2 billion, compared to 1.58 billion this year, as envisaged in the revised budget.

Ilic said that the Parliament of Serbia 19 November Ratify Chinese loan of 333.7 million dollars for the construction of the Obrenovca Ub and Lajkovca Ljiga to a distance of about 50 kilometers , and Serbia in the loan accounts for 10 percent of the money .

He said that if Serbia after that first payment of around eight million , but the next day they could start work .

"The Chinese are already present and their company ( Shandong high- spid group ) has already been established in Serbia, ready to work , which could begin in 15 to 20 days, if we give initial advance ," said Ilic , adding that the works can be expected at the end of November or early December .

He said he is pleased to have supported capital projects in his department and thanked for their support Serbia Tomislav Nikolic , Prime Minister Ivica Dacic , First Deputy Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic and ministers.

"I always could and more, so you generally can not be satisfied , because it can always be more money in the budget , investments and more jobs, more housing ..." , the Minister said the building.

He said he was , however , sorry that it was not possible to make more money in the budget for next year to provide housing , but it will be found other ways to compensate for it .

Ilic said he was very pleased that the highway Ljig - Preljina , Azerbaijanis who build our businesses , carried by more than 10 percent ahead of schedule.

" We will start with two concessions ( for the construction of a highway from Surčina to Obrenovca from Preljine to Požege ) and finish what we promised , and that is hilljade jobs and jobs for construction workers and road workers, " said the minister .

Speaking of Chinese, a Chinese media article about their construction firm's trials in Serbia...

Quote:
Chinese firms facing challenges in Serbia
Global Times | 2013-11-12 0:53:01
By Ling Yuhuan

"I'm quite confident we can complete the substantial part of the bridge within the contracted period, regardless of difficulties," Chen San'an told the Global Times on a cold afternoon in early October, while effortlessly navigating the busy construction site.

The Zemun-Borca Bridge project in Serbia, China's first infrastructure project in Europe, commenced in late October 2011, and had been scheduled to be completed by the end of November 2014.

It is being built by the China Road and Bridge Corporation (CRBC), which also subcontracts some work to Serbian companies. Chen is the project manager and the deputy general manager of CRBC's Serbian branch.

The project includes a 1,482-meter bridge across the Danube River between the neighborhoods of Zemun and Borca in Belgrade and access roads leading to the bridge of about 20 kilometers.

While 85 percent of the value of the project, which totals $255 million, is financed by the Export-Import Bank of China, the rest is secured by the Serbian government.

It will be the second bridge across the Danube in Serbia after the Pancevo Bridge.

Petar Mihajlovic, a 22-year-old sports student living in Borca, told the Global Times that the Zemun-Borca Bridge will make life easier for citizens, calling the bridge "one of the most important infrastructure projects on the left bank of the Danube."

Economic and trade cooperation between China and Serbia has risen in recent years. China was the eighth largest trade partner of Serbia in 2012.

Besides the Zemun-Borca Bridge project, Chinese company Shandong High-Speed Group will soon begin the construction of two sections of the Obrenovac-Ljig motorway, Serbian Foreign Minister Ivan Mrkic told the Global Times in an exclusive interview in early October.

In addition, China Machinery Engineering Corportion (CMEC) is already underway with the first phase of work on the Kostolac thermal power plant, said Merkic.

"Our expectations are that the Chinese side will also be involved in the second phase of the project, and some other infrastructure projects as well," he said.

Delayed land acquisition

"As a mid-level market, Serbia is a bridgehead for Chinese companies to enter the European market," said CRBC's Chen, adding that Chinese companies, through competition with companies from EU countries in Serbia, can more clearly see the gaps between themselves and EU companies.

However, he also expressed hope that the Serbian government could improve its efficiency.

He noted that a major challenge facing CRBC at the moment is Serbian authorities' delay in acquiring land.

Due to the delay, a negotiation over extension of the deadline is ongoing between CRBC and Serbian authorities. It has been verbally agreed that a 12-kilometer access road can be delivered by the end of 2015, said Chen.

In response to a question about land acquisition for the Zemun-Borca Bridge project, Merkic told the Global Times that the government of Serbia had "problems" with the city administration of former Belgrade mayor and opposition Democratic Party leader Dragan Djilas, which he said was "simply delaying some acquisitions."

Djilas was toppled from the post in late September.

"The government of Serbia has many complaints with that mayor. About those acquistions, well, there has been postponement and postponement. We hope to complete them in the nearest future," he said.

Long approval process

Echoing Chen, Li Xueqiang, chief representative of CMEC in Serbia, also said he hopes the Serbian authorities could facilitate their approval process.

"When it comes to the approval process, the authorities of European countries usually follow strict laws and regulations, and are sometimes considered inflexible by Chinese companies," he told the Global Times.

"But of course, Chinese companies should also abide by local laws and regulations," he added.

Frequent administrative reshuffles are another challenge for Chinese companies, Meng Yan, general manager with China Shandong International Economic & Technical Cooperation Group, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Shandong High-Speed Group, told the Global Times.

"A local parliamentary election may result in the alternation of senior officials in the Serbian government," he said. "Officials in negotiations with us today are likely to be replaced by different officials the next day."

EU membership

Talking about the prospect of the possible accession of Serbia to the EU - negotiations over which will start in January 2014 at the latest - Chinese companies showed mixed feelings.

"Personally, I don't hope for Serbia to join the EU, for there would be a lot of restrictive policies for Chinese companies in that case," said Li Xueqiang.

According to Li, the EU's restrictions over government intervention in the market make it difficult for Chinese enterprises to participate in EU projects.

"Under EU rules, the government is not allowed to provide loan guarantees for enterprises, and it would be difficult for Chinese enterprises to borrow money from banks without government guarantees," said Li. "Currently, most large-scale projects by Chinese companies are financed by government loans."

In addition, the EU has been mulling legislation since 2012 to seek greater powers to restrict non-EU, especially Chinese, companies from bidding for government contracts in the 28-nation bloc, Reuters reported, to strike back at what the EU considers unfair competition from economic rivals.

Stressing that Serbia is not presently limited by the EU restrictions, the Serbian foreign minister said he hoped there would be an adjustment between the EU and China by the time Serbia joined the bloc, "so that China will participate in the projects by the EU."

Chen San'an expressed guarded optimism toward the possible Serbian EU membership.

"Unless the EU has adopted the retaliatory legislation, I don't think there will be any negative impact if Serbia joins the EU," he said.

"If Serbia joins the EU, the experience we have accumulated in Serbia can help us advance toward the EU market. On the other hand, we can further enhance our core competitiveness through learning from the business technologies and regulations of a well-developed market," he said.
