That much makes sense, the rest of it to the Montenegrin Border will end up costing €2bn and carry feck all traffic except in summer.

As Belgrade is planning a c.40km Metro for around 40 years already why not build that instead ( funny enough it would ALSO cost around €2bn if you let the Chinese do it) and never mind the tears of the hoteliers down in Kotor who are the only ones who really want the Serbs to blow €Billions on an empty motorway in the Dinarics.

Let the EU pay for most of that instead, in 10-15 years time, Belgrade needs a Metro sooner than that.

Well, that would be Podgorica...a booming capital of a quarter million people towards which we're building this motorway in the first place.

In some ways, such as number of passengers at its international airport, Podgorica now has surpassed Sarajevo.

Some details are starting to emerge about this newest section of A2 motorway, Preljina-Pozega.

As expected, as the highway gets closer to Montenegro, the costs go up - at 14,5 million euros per kilometer, it ranks as one of the most expensive in Serbia so far.

From Preljina to Požega for half a billion dollars
Z. R. | November 9, 2017 21:29

The government adopted a resolution on the financing of the section on Corridor 11. A 30.9 km highway will be built. Deadline 36 months


PROJECTING and building a section of the highway from Preljina to Požega will cost 523.5 million dollars, or about 450 million euros. The Government of Serbia today adopted a conclusion for a commercial contract on the design and execution of works on the construction of this section on Corridor 11. It was signed by the public company "Roads of Serbia" and the Chinese company China Communications Construction Company Ltd.

The contract refers to the design and execution of works and the delivery of equipment, materials and parts with a deadline for the execution of works of 36 months, which does not include the period of preparation and adoption of project documentation.

A particular specificity of this commercial contract is related to its entry into force. The contract will become effective by entering into force of the Contract on financing the project through the approval of the long-term loan to the Republic of Serbia from the Chinese Export-Import Bank.

Services and works relate to the construction of a 30.9 km highway full-road with associated engineering facilities, loops, tunnels and bridges. Characteristic for this section is that it passes through a very difficult geographical terrain, because almost a third of the route will be made by bridges and tunnels.

The aim of signing a commercial contract is to define the way of financing the construction of this part of the highway, in order to enable the complete completion of the project "Belgrade - South Adriatic", the total length of 258 kilometers.

The Memorandum of Understanding on cooperation on the project "Belgrade - South Adriatic" was signed in Beijing during the Forum "Belt and Road" in May this year.


TUNNELS AND BRIDGES

The section of the highway from Preljina to Požega is divided into three sectors. From Preljina to Prijevor along the Čemernica River and in the small part next to the Western Morava it has 8.27 kilometers. From Prijevor to Lucane, 15.51 km should be asphalted and 20 bridges built, which will be longer than three kilometers. The construction of the "Laz" tunnel of 1,750 meters is also planned. The third subway from Lučani to Požega will be stretched for seven kilometers, and on it should be built three bridges, a tunnel of 2,040 meters long, a loop in Lučani and a bridge over the river Bjelica.

Actually it is not very close to Montenegro at all.

The €14.5m a km cost is for building in _hilly_ country in the north east foothills of the Dinaric Alps. From Pozega to the Montenegrin border is full on mountain motorway for 100km and that is the bit that will come in at €2bn...at a minimum.

Serbia could build either a) 300-400km of Motorway for that price on the plains in the north or else b) a Belgrade Metro. And either of those will get more use and cashflow .....more than likely.

Trans Dinaric motorways can wait until the EU eventually pays for them...and Bosnia has an equally expensive plan (per km) south of Sarajevo.

For the next 10 years the EU is already looking at some equally expensive trans Carpathian projects and also at the Kresna Gorge project in Bulgaria and not forgetting Nis-Pristina which will surely need EU cash too.

It is an expressway not a motorway (no hard shoulder) . What is the speed limit on those in Serbia, not that you have many.

New projects with EIB worth nearly €500m

Quote:
Belgrade, 15 Nov 2017 – Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Construction, Transport and Infrastructure Zorana Mihajlovic visited today with the delegation of the European Investment Bank (EIB) on the construction of a bridge over the Sava near Ostruznica.

Mihajlovic said that the bridge works are financed by the EIB and that the Serbian government has long-term and long-term cooperation with the bank on the construction of infrastructure, both road and rail, and announced new joint projects worth nearly €500 million.

She expressed the expectation that the contract for the modernisation and electrification project of the Nis-Dimitrovgrad railway and the construction of a roundabout around Nis, worth about €250 million, will be signed in December.

The new project with the EIB is also the "Peace Road" of Nis-Merdare-Pristina, where €212 million will be invested in the construction of the first sections of that road, from Nis to Plocnik, she noted.

Work on doubling up of Ostruznica bridge, part of Belgrade's orbital motorway, is expected to be completed by late 2018. Apparently, they have had some delays due to....mines

No, 5km that would connect it with A1, trough the town of Batočina, is missing. No plans for that. Also, there is one "temporary" roundabout.

For some that dispute the value of building motorways

Seventy factories in Cacak and its surronding area opened in the year since opening of A2 Ljig-Preljina section...

Construction of Fruska Gora Corridor begins next year

Quote:
Belgrade, 17 Nov 2017 – Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Construction, Transport and Infrastructure Zorana Mihajlovic spoke today with Ambassador of Hungary to Serbia Attila Pinter on cooperation between the two countries in the field of transport and infrastructure.


The main topic of the meeting was the way of financing the construction of the fast road Novi Sad-Ruma, better known as the Fruska Gora Corridor, with a total length of 45.4 km.

Mihajlovic underlined that the Fruska Gora Corridor is strategically important for Serbia and for this part of Europe, pointing out that the project documentation is nearing completion.

Our plan is to start the works next year, and in the meantime, we will discuss how to finance this project, she explained.

Pinter pointed out that the previous year marked numerous contacts between the two governments and that there was plenty of room for further cooperation between the two countries.

The officials also exchanged information on progress in the implementation of other infrastructure projects of importance for Serbia and Hungary, including the modernization of the Belgrade-Budapest railway, the reconstruction of the Szeged-Subotica-Baja railway line and the opening of the new border crossing Rastina.
