It seems like a lot of highway projects are built by domestic firms in Serbia... or am I wrong? Their labor cost is probably cheaper than foreign firms.

That's the only reason they did pay attention on it. It just seems like they are overdoing it because the number of gas stations and other possibilities to refill (AMSS - Auto Club, Motels etc) they adress is so high that it catches your eye (or ear).

I don't see what would be wrong with the domestic firms...or on the contrary, what would be better if it were foreign firms. The domestic firms are all experienced in roadbuilding, and they submitted the cheapest offer and by that won the tender. If a foreign firm submitted the cheapest offer they would have won. I think that foreign firms would also use a domestic work force and don't bring them all in from outside, could be wrong though.

From what I remember, just a few years back, it was said that domestic firms were too ill-equipped & inexperienced to take on major motorway building contracts - at that time, negotiations were ongoing with a number of foreign companies, such as Austria's Strabag or Alpina-Porr to build certain segments of motorway. Domestic firms would in that case be taken on as sub-contractors.

Large contracts were awarded to some of these of these foreign companies but for some reason, things didn't work out the way they were supposed to. Now all we got to show for it are legal expenses and years of wasted time.

In the meantime, a number of smaller local firms decided to form consortiums, invested money into new equipment and modernization so now they are quite able to bid for and then carry out projects such as motorway construction.

Anyways, here are two nice pics:

Novi Sad-Horgos


Austria's Porr won the ~25 million euro contract to repair a 25km section of Belgrade motorway:

Well, our firms are extremely experienced. During Yugolsavia our companies were the biggest developpers in the Middle east and Africa. I think that it is very good that we give job to our companies and not foreign ones, because Governmet wants to improve our construction industry and go back to old markets.

i don't know, for me this is as they would test where on the route Milka chocolate is available to buy. not the end of the world if a station doesn't have LPG, there is always some gas in their reservoirs so they will not run out of fuel in the middle of a motorway.

But if you, on a length of 500 km's, miss the gas stations that have LPG and always have to fill up with gas, your trip becomes more expensive than planned. LPG is what the cars run on, it's not Milka

you can bring Milka with you.

Serbia has bad experience with foreign building companies especially with Austrians.

Is there any proper map of planned motorways and expressways in Serbia ? It seems like these two types are often confused in news

On wednesday i went from Novi Sad to south...

Great progress i must say (which i do not say very often) on Novi Sad-Beska section... There are a lot of machines and a lot of workers on a ~10km section... New asphalt looks great...

Not very often we have a chance to look a construction of a 2+3+3+2 (i hope that is how it should be written) ...

Unfortunately,no pics... The windows on a bus were filthy...

After that great Belgrade-Thassos drive report, here's the latest one - covering the ~500km drive from Belgrade to Montenegro's top tourist town of Budva. It's about an hour long.

I am not sure whether the quality of the video allows completely to show how beautiful this road is. Please, upload Belgrade-Sunny beach video. I am really impatient to watch it.

Works on highway to Montenegro launched

12.7.2010 13:03:00 | Source/Author PressCut
The civil works on the highway Koridor 11, worth RSD 8.65bn in total, have been launched in Nepricava near Lajkovac, stated the Serbian Ministry of Infrastructure. The highway section between Lajkovac and Ub is 12.5 kilometres long and it is a part of the future Belgrade-South Adriatic highway.

The contractor is a consortium of Serbian companies, Poduzece za puteve Beograd, Putevi Uzice and Planum. The deadline is October 2011. Lajkovac was chosen as the starting point for the civil works because the documentation for the section had been prepared and the land bought.

Work on Belgrade's new bridge over Danube river officially begins tomorrow

Foundation stone laying ceremony for Zemun – Borca Bridge

Belgrade, 13 July 2010 – Minister of National Investment Plan Verica Kalanovic stated today that the foundation stone for the Zemun – Borca Bridge will be laid tomorrow.

In a statement to Radio Television of Serbia, Kalanovic said that the project is based on a bilateral agreement between Serbia and China, adding that a model for carrying out large-scale infrastructure and development projects, which is new to Serbia, will be used in this project.

The project also includes the construction of access roads, the total length of which will be 21.5 kilometres, as well as eight smaller bridges and a number of intersections, she outlined.

Recent negotiations with Chinese partners led to a reduction in construction costs from €320 million to €170 million, she recalled.

The contract obliges engaging subcontractors and using building materials from Serbia in the amount of over 45% of the total financial value of the project.

The financial agreement between the Serbian government and the Chinese Exim bank will be signed on 15 July, she announced.

The deadline for completion of the bridge is three years, she confirmed noting that the access roads need to be completed in two years.

The holder of the project is the Ministry for National Investment Plan while the City of Belgrade is the user and partner in the project.
This new six-lane bridge, with just over 1,500 meters in length, will be an integral part of the outer ring road, marked as "SMT" on this map:

Car accident rate falls by 32.5% since beginning of the year

Quote:
Belgrade, 15 July 2010 – First Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of the Interior Ivica Dacic said today that since the beginning of implementation of the Law on road traffic safety the number of car accidents has fallen significantly.

Presenting a bill on amendments to the law on road traffic safety to parliament members, Dacic emphasised that some changes are still needed though, such as the introduction of fines instead of prison sentences as penalties.

He affirmed that some of the positive effects of the Law are achieving greater discipline and more order in the field of traffic safety.

However, some provisions of this law, the implementation of which started in December last year, are not in line with real conditions and are not appropriate for punishing certain offences.

It would also be much more effective to introduce the possibility of choosing the penalty, meaning a fine instead of imprisonment, which is a practice employed by many European countries.

Giving data on the number of car accidents, casualties and deaths in the first six months of 2010, the Minister outlined that the number of car accidents has fallen by 32.5% since the beginning of the year in comparison to the same period last year.

The number of car accidents with casualties has dropped by 20.1% and with deaths by 32.9% in relation to the same period last year, noting that the total number of casualties is lower by 20.3%.

Dacic observed that the most common causes of accidents are speeding, unsafe overtaking and head-on collisions, as well as driving after drinking alcohol.

Since the beginning of 2010, 21,037 drivers were caught driving after drinking, the Minister specified and added that the in the same period last year, this number was 33, 994.

Dacic noted that accidents are most common on trunk roads and regional roads in populated areas, while accidents with the gravest consequences are recorded on “open roads”.
