Crucial new road bridge across Sava river (440m in length), connecting Serbia with Serb Republic in Bosnia, was opened today:

Quote:
Bridge in Sremska Raca opened for traffic
September 6, 2010

Serbian President Boris Tadic, Prime Minister of the Republic of Srpska Milorad Dodik and President of the Executive Council of Vojvodina Bojan Pajtic opened the new bridge over the Sava River at Sremska Raca, between Serbia and Bosnia and Herzegovina, funded by the Capital Investment Fund of the Autonomous Province of Vojvodina. While opening the bridge, Tadic expressed conviction that it will further bring closer the people on both sides of the Sava and contribute to the economic development of Serbia and the Republic of Srpska.

One of our forumers created a neat map showing the current state of motorway infrastructure in the countries that once made up Yugoslavia...keep in mind, its not meant to be 100% precise.

In other news, Serbia's Government has today finally decided to allocate its share of funds towards the completion of Belgrade's long ago "forgotten" bridge, spanning Sava river and linking the city's two municipalities of Surcin & Obrenovac. Some ~15-20 million euros is needed for work on access roads and the bridge structure itself. If all goes well, it could be opened to traffic by 2011/12.









The bridge was originally designed merely to carry a hot water pipeline, but it has since been decided to adapt it for traffic purpose as well.

The Romanian Transport Ministry has included Corridor XI (Romanian section) among the projects to be started after 2013:




It's going to be a direct motorway link between Nadlac and Moravita via Timisoara. Yellow lines are motorway projects proposed after 2013.

Good news
Here, they've just confirmed that works on Vrsac bypass will start next week, meaning there will now be two sections of "Corridor XI" U/C in Serbia - one between Belgrade & Romania (Vrsac bypass) and one between Belgrade and border with Montenegro (Ub-Lajkovac section)

Quote:
Construction of ring road around Vrsac starts on 17 September

Novi Sad, 11 Sept 2010 – Minister of Infrastructure Milutin Mrkonjic announced today that the construction of a ring road around Vrsac will begin on 17 September, when the road Corridor 11 through Serbia will be promoted in the presence of European officials.

Visiting the works on the northern branch of Corridor 10, Mrkonjic told the Tanjug news agency that the Vrsac ring road will cost around €15 million and that domestic companies have been contracted for the project.

This is another confirmation of the government’s wish to provide as much work as possible for Serbian construction companies.

In response to demands by construction companies for the government to increase the volume of work for them, the government decided to begin constructing a section of Corridor 11 from Belgrade to Vrsac and off to Timisoara, and in that sense it will begin works on this ring road next week, the Minister underlined.

Mrkonjic explained that the government has earmarked funds for the ring road, part of the future Corridor 11, which will connect Romania, Serbia, Montenegro and Italy.

At this occasion, a promotion of the entire corridor will be held in Vrsac in the presence of Italian, Romanian, Bulgarian and Croatian ministers and ambassadors from European countries taking part in the project, Mrkonjic concluded.

How long has it been since construction stopped? Since before the war, maybe?

As you probably know, there was one such bridge over the Mississippi River in Louisiana: http://www.johnweeks.com/river_missi...s/lmiss14.html
This site says the bridge was opened in 1995, but... when I drove the riverside road in 1988, the main span was in place, and there were no approaches and no effort underway to build them.

That is one cool map. Great!

In Slovenia he can add three short expressways H5 from Koper to Italy, H6 by Izola and H7 by Lendava.
