But that GDP is calculated based on purchasing power parity. Shouldn't the share of road investments in GDP be calculated based on the nominal value of the GDP?

Looks like after a little bit of a construction freeze, major work will once again begin on Belgrade's ring-road in the coming months.

Land expropriation, which has really dragged out, is almost complete along the ~10km Batajnica-Dobanovci section, ensuring that construction can start at the beginning of next month.

Meanwhile, construction of tunnels & bridges along the much more demanding Orlovaca-Bubanj Potok section (sectors 5 & 6) should start in October - work on finishing the ~750 meter long Strazevica tunnel has already begun. All of these sections should finally be complete in two years time.

Tender announced for construction of new Zezelj Bridge

Public company Serbian Railways announced the tender today (August 10, 2010) for construction of a road-rail bridge across the Danube, in Novi Sad, in the location of former Zezelj Bridge, which was torn down in NATO bombing.

According to the notice published on the website of Serbian Railways (www.zeleznicesrbije.com), the tender envisages drawing of plans and construction of new Zezelj Bridge, as well as removal of existing temporary bridge, while the deadline for completion of works is 32 months.

The new Zezelj Bridge will be constructed along the original alignment and using the existing central foundation, it will be 474 meters long and consist of two tied steel arches 180 and 220 meters long.

According to the preliminary project, the bridge on international Corridor 10 will be 31.6 meters wide, it will have two railway tracks, two road lanes, and two pedestrian and cycling tracks.

As it was announced earlier, construction of the bridge, worth total of 60 million euros, will be financed from the funds of the European Union in amount of 30 million euros, 20 million euros will be provided from the budget of Vojvodina, while 10 million euros will be set aside for that purpose in the budget of the city of Novi Sad.

The deadline for submission of bids on the tender is November 3, 2010. The works are divided into two lots - civil construction works and steel structure.

According to the tender terms, bidders must provide a common tender guarantee of 1 million euros, while the winner on the tender will be asked to provide performance guarantee in amount of 10% of the value of the contract.

Participation is open to all legal persons whose average annual turnover for construction works over the last three financial years is at least 40 million euros. The bidders must also have equipment, staff and money to carry out minimum 70% of the works envisaged by the tender.
The rest of the terms and details of the tender can be read on the website of Serbian Railways - www.zeleznicesrbije.com.

Good job.
I have driven from Belgrade to Montenegro this summer and roads seemed to be in a very good condition. Also they look after the guardrails to be replaced or looked after. I am talking about those brownish ones from SFRJ days. Five years ago those were all over in Western Serbia.

Title of the coolest little road bridge finished in Serbia this year in my opinion goes to this 250 meter long bridge across Tisa river in the northern town of Ada:



Couple of photos of the bridge while it was still U/C:

It hasn't been opened to traffic yet, they're still working on finishing the access roads - it shouldn't take too long

No, because they are a local product, not imported.

Small update from Novi Sad (beautiful city on today's banner ) - Horgos (HU border) section - deadline for completion of this ~110km section is end of January next year though the contractors say they may even finish it earlier:

Quick job. Although I wonder how fast they can make new bridges. Overpasses and interchanges are probably wide enough already to accommodate the second carriageway, but bridges across rivers / roads probably not.

There will be a few minor ones, running across things like Danube-Tisa-Danube (DTD) canal and other smaller irrigation/flood-control canals.

No doubt, some bottlenecks will remain, even after this section is ceremoniously opened by our politicians Even along the completed Novi Sad-Belgrade motorway, the last major bottleneck - new Beska bridge - won't be "removed" until middle of next year:

No increase in highway tolls

17 August 2010 | 11:30 | Source: B92
BELGRADE -- There will be no increase in the price of highway and road tolls in 2010, the Putevi Srbije company told B92.

The public company announced earlier that it would be asking for an increase of 11 percent in toll prices.

After the request was made public, Infrastructure Minister Milutin Mrkonjić said that tolls would not be increased and that the government would not even be discussing the matter.
