Good news at the end of a long, dark tunnel - after long delays due to various issues, Nis-Dimitrovgrad (A4) motorway construction slowly wrapping up


Quote:
New Coridor 10 section to open by the end of November – Road workers connect Pirot and Dimitrovgrad
Sunday, 11/13/2016|17:21 | Source: Novosti


The first next highway section in Serbia to open is the one between Pirot and Dimitrovgrad, on the eastern branch of Corridor 10. The Corridors of Serbia say that the works on the 14.3 m long section are close to being completed and that the section will open for traffic by the end of this month. The exact date has not yet been set, but Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic has announced that the opening will take place in 15 to 20 days.

If everything had gone according to plan, the section would have opened in May 2012. The construction started exactly six years ago, in November 2010, when Austria’s Alpina was selected as the contractor, and the construction deadline was 18 months. Due to the company’s bankruptcy, the works stopped, and the contract with Bulgaria’s Trace Group was signed in April 2014. The company was given 450 days to complete the job. This was later extended as well, so the populace in this area and all those who travel to Bulgaria are happy to learn that the works are nearing the end at last.

The length of the eastern branch of Corridor 10 is 86.6 kilometers, and 69.4 km will be completed by the end of the year. In 2017, it only remains for the workers to complete the sections from the Nacarevo tunnel to Crvena Reka, which should take until late 2017, and the bypass route around Dimitrovgrad, which is supposed to be completed by April.

– The works on the route between Prosek and the Bancarevo tunnel in the length of 9.4 km, carried out by Greece’s Terna, should also be completed by the end of this month, whereas the completion of Bancarevo tunnel, carried out by the Czech company Subtera, is planned for December – they say at the Corridors.

– Last December, 13 kilometers from Crvena Reka to Ciflik were opened for traffic, whereas three lanes in the length of 12.2 km from Ciflik to Stanicenje were completed at the same time and the other half-profile will be ready in December.

The same deadline pertains to the Stanicenje-Pirot section with the length of 16.6 kilometers, being built by Greece’s Aktor.

Six years for seven kilometers

The bypass route around Dimitrovgrad has so far proven to be the section with the worst luck. These seven kilometers are currently being worked on by the third contractor, Greece’s Aktor. The works on this section were started by Austria’s Alpina back in 2010 and they were supposed to be completed by April 2012. Following their bankruptcy, a new contractor was selected, Bulgaria’s Trace Group, but his company also failed to complete the route and the contract was terminated. Aktor then got the job and they have been given a deadline until April to finally complete the 7 km section leading to the Bulgarian border.

Belgrade is soon to follow in the footsteps of another great Slavic capital, Prague, with planned construction of new road tunnels in downtown core...some details about that:

Construction of bridges, squares, tunnels, garages – eKapija investigates which projects Belgrade is looking at
Monday, 11/07/2016|12:43 | Source: eKapija

The famous meeting spots in Belgrade – Slavija and Vukov Spomenik, will soon get a new look. Although people of Belgrade might be interested in these locations the most, they are only a small part of the city projects planned for the period to come.

The Belgrade Land Development Public Agency presented the largest ongoing or planned projects a little over a month ago. Among them are laying down tram tracks on the Ada Bridge, construction of a trolley and bus turn in Dunavska Streeet, reconstruction of the Terazije Terrace, a bridge at Ada Huja, development of the Republic Square, thorough reconstruction of the Old Sava Bridge...

What can people of Belgrade expect and when?

The Agency's projects are sorted in sections and eKapija presents them to you as such


“Belgrade Waterfront”

The plans include the reconstruction of the Old Sava Bridge, the construction of access routes to the Belgrade Waterfront, laying down tram tracks on the Ada Bridge (according to the Agency, the contractors agreement should be signed in mid-December) and the construction of the Savska Padina-Dunavska Padina tunnel.

The future tunnel, which will connect the Sava amphitheater and the Danube coastal area, will start being defined in spring 2017. Two conceptual solutions (with elements of a preliminary plan), whose preparation began in early October, will be reveled by then. The job has been awarded to CeS COWI Belgrade, along with joint bidders Geo-dita Belgrade and Makspro Belgrade. The Agency aims to have the works start in spring 2018, and for the tunnel to be completed in 2021. The project is worth EUR 110 million (VAT not included).



.

The new tunnel is meant to connect the city's two waterfronts, along both Sava & Danube rivers, as well two major brownfield sites - both slated for heavy development in years ahead. One is the former railway yards, where a mixed-use UAE-led "Belgrade on Water" project is already in full gear...




.... and the soon to be relocated Port of Belgrade, also slated for major redevelopment in the future:

Well, there you go - now that it's a bit more accessible, you can.
Think of it as a "rest stop" on the way to Montenegro.

Btw, some say Eastern Serbia is even more beautiful, we just need to build some expressways towards those areas.

A few more photos by vukasin.spasic on the finished section on A4. It can't be opened yet because the connection won't be finished for another 2 months but the road itself is done.







Some shots of sections still U/C

Okay, but neither the next part can be ready in 2 months(even in half profile), nor road 427 can be widened in 2 months in order to carry the heavy traffic.So, again, what connection are we referring to?When they open this one in 2 months, how would the traffic get to Crvena Reka?

Possibly the most popular foreign leader in Serbia, after Putin of course.
Even my mother loves him.

If coming from Drobeta Turnu Severin and the Danube gorge, how do i go fastest to the motorway towards Belgrade and to Hungary again?

I want to visit the hydro power plant (again) and follow road 34 to Golubac. I suppose i stay on it, until it meets 33? How is this road?
