No, actually this is pretty normal - it was Easter after all. Everything was running smoothly, wait times were said to be just ~10 minutes.

I'm looking into some of the highway history of Serbia, in particular when the motorways were constructed.

As for A1 / E75 it seems that the entire route between Beograd and Niš was completed by at least the early 1980s. Google Earth has very low resolution historical imagery going back to 1984 that appears to show the motorway completed from Beograd to Niš. Is there more detailed information about the opening dates of this segment? Wikipedias in various languages don't provide much detail beyond the more recent investments.

Also, the Niš - Leskovac section seemed to have started construction around 1989, being open to traffic by 1991 or 1992. The Leskovac bypass started construction in the early 1990s, though Google Earth historical imagery shows earthworks throughout the 1990s and early 2000s, suggesting this segment did not open to traffic until around 2004.

The historical imagery in Google Earth is of such low resolution that you can basically only see the difference between earthworks and paved surfaces. It suggests that by the time it shows up paved it would've opened to traffic within that year or maybe the next.

Some interesting, though still very preliminary news...

After two rather bland bridges (both functional and necessary, but boring designs) - namely the recently completed Zemun-Borca and currently U/C Surcin-Obrenovac bridge - Belgrade now looks set to get another major landmark, with its planned 3rd Danube bridge being described as the "twin" of Ada bridge.

The same company that designed the Ada bridge, Ponting from SLovenia, is part of a consortium that's currently preparing the conceptual design for the new bridge, at Ada Huja.

The new bridge, at just under 3km in length, is expected to cost about 180 million euros - and will serve to close off the last stage of the city's outer ring-road (not to be confused with Belgrade's motorway ring-road)

1982 situation according to my map:

Ruma - Pećinci - half profile
Pećinci - Šimanovci - full profile
Šimanovci - Dobanovci - old "autoput" thing (1+1 road)
Dobanovci - Batočina - full profile
Batočina - Jagodina - half profile
Jagodina - Pojate - old autoput thing
Pojate - Deligrad - full profile
Deligrad - Niš half profile

i don't know what this half-profile looked like. was it 2+1, or was it only 1+1 on newly built half of mororway u/c.

The plan is for two sections on Corridor 11 to be completed in November 2017, namely, Obrenovac-Ub and Ljig-Lajkovac, announced Minister of Construction, Transport and Infrastructure Zorana Mihajlovic.

She said to the press at the International Building Trade Fair that the completion of those two sections would mark the completion of the Obrenovac-Preljina highway in 2017.

Mihajlovic also reminded that there were efforts to continue works on Corridor 11, that is, the Preljina-Pozega section, as well as that the project was being discussed with two Chinese companies interested in taking part in it.

“Twin” of Szentendre Bridge to be built – Novi Sad opens tender for project design, construction to begin in 2019

Quote:
Thursday, 04/27/2017|13:23 | Source: Radio 021

The City of Novi Sad has opened a tender for the project design for a “twin” of the Szentendre (Klisa) Bridge on the Danube-Tisa-Danube Canal. The plan is to build an identical twin-bridge, in addition to expanding the Szentendre Road into a boulevard and fully reconstructing the current bridge, which has taken a lot of damage over the years. Each bridge will therefore enable traffic in one direction.

The value of the project is RSD 15 million, and the documentation says that the new twin-bridge should look identical to the current one, at 195 meters of length, with two 3.5-m lanes, a bicycle and pedestrian lane of two and 1.6 meters, as well as a secured area for installations and regular and decorative lighting.

The construction of the bridge will begin after the reconstruction of the existing one and the expansion of the traffic route, that is, in 2019. The city's budget plan already states that the construction will require around RSD 165 million.

The expansion of the Szentendre Road and a total reconstruction of the bridge will be financed jointly by the Republic of Serbia, through the Roads of Serbia, the Autonomous Province of Vojvodina and Novi Sad, with RSD 730 million for the traffic route and another RSD 80 million for the bridge. The tenders for these works have not yet been opened, but are expected to take place soon, as the contracts were signed several months ago.

Fruska Gora corridor moving forward, negotiations underway with Chinese CRBC ...

Serbia discusses irrigation tunnel with China's CRBC

BELGRADE (Serbia), April 28 (SeeNews) – Serbian infrastructure ministry has said it is discussing with China Road and Bridge Corporation (CRBC) the potential construction of an irrigation tunnel connecting the Danube river to Srem region in Vojvodina province, to run parallel to the future Fruskogorski Corridor road.

In this way, in addition to improving the transport connections in the area, the Fruskogorski Corridor project would solve irrigation problems in Srem and would further contribute to the development of Serbia's agriculture, the ministry said in a statement on Thursday, following a meeting of infrastructure minister Zorana Mihajlovic with representatives of CRBC.

Along with the implementation of ongoing infrastructure projects, the government is preparing new ones and Fruskogorski Corridor is among its priorities, Mihajlovic said in the statement.

The Fruskogorski Corridor project represents an upgrade of the Novi Sad-Ruma section of IB-21 road that will connect pan-European transport corridors X and IV, creating the shortest possible link between Bosnia and Romania via Serbia.

The 37 km-long Novi Sad-Ruma two-lane section of IB-21 is to be upgraded to a dual carriageway with a length of 45.4 km. The project involves the construction of a 3.5 km-long road tunnel under the Fruska Gora National Park, a protected mountain area located in Srem region, as well as a bypass around the town of Irig.

In November, Vojvodina authorities said that Turkish industrial conglomerate Nurol Holding had expressed interest in setting up a public-private partnership and providing funding for upgrades on the Novi Sad-Ruma road.

The project has also entered the radar of Chinese investors. Last year, the Vojvodina government met representatives of China Shandong International Economic & Technical (CSIET) and CRBC, with both companies expressing serious interest in the project, the regional government said at the time.

New tunnel in Western Serbia now in design stage...clumsy Google translation:

Quote:
Bajina Basta and Uzice 40 million dinars for the preliminary design of the tunnel below Kadinjača
Wednesday, 12. 04. 2017 | 13: 03 | Source: BBC

Ministry of Economy has approved the Bajina Basta and Uzice close to 40 million dinars for the co-financing of the Preliminary Design tunnel Kadinjača.

According to the general project, which was adopted by the Ministry of Construction, Transport and Infrastructure, and that is with 130,000 euros financed by the EU Office in Serbia, tunnel under Kadinjača longitudinally will shorten the time between Bajina Basta and Uzice for six kilometers, a time for 15-20 minutes. Tunnel to avoid a series of "elbow" bend in the narrow, in the winter often hard pits, Highway.

With the proceeds from the country two neighbor city will co-finance conceptual project with 16 million dinars.

- Preliminary design and includes all associated research and studies, are also here and detailed regulation plan, as well as plan for land expropriation. I think in the next two years we can go in search of funds for construction of the tunnel that is of great importance for the Zlatibor district and even Podrinje - says project coordinator Ivan Markovic, urban planners from Bajina Basta.

I think in the next two years we can go in search of funds for construction of the tunnel that is of great importance for the Zlatibor district and even Podrinje - says project coordinator Ivan Markovic, urban planners from Bajina Basta.

The tunnel would be dug 1,344 meters and with him to build two bridges - one length 225, the other 62 meters. The entrance to the tunnel from the direction of Bajina Basta, including the access road, would be in the village Stopper, while output was at Volujacka field on the territory of Uzice. The total investment value is estimated at 26.7 million euros.

Uzice is de-facto regional center of western Serbia....



....while Bajina Basta is, well...

In regards to the A4, I drove it from Nis to Sofia this past weekend and was very disappointed that not a single km of it is actually open as a dual carriageway. Lots of section looking near to completion, but none actually open. What the h*ll is the delay?
