Couple of interesting Belgrade city-driving videos - the person who made it really covered a lot of ground, from downtown city streets to suburbs, wide boulevards of New Belgrade and narrow streets of old Belgrade, most of the bridges, etc.

So how come the Serbs are building Nis-Dimitrovgrad, but Bulgarians are not building Sofia-SRB border? Considering that Bulgaria is part of the EU, shouldn't it be opposite?

The motorway connection Sofia-serbian border is being planned right now.
http://sg.stroitelstvo.info/show.php?storyid=970896 (couldn't find a source in English, sorry)

At this moment EU funds are allocated to Bulgaria for other projects (Danube bridge II Vidin-Calafat, Trakija motorway to the sea coast, the south motorway connection with Greece Sofia-Thessaloniki, as well as the Sofia subway network).
We all hope construction of the motorway Sofia-Dimitrovgrad will start ASAP, because this road is awfully congested, especially in the summer.

It will... soon hopefully For now we have some other priorities(finishing A1 from Sofia to Burgas and connecting it with the Turkish border via A3), but they are already working on preparing the projects, technical plans etc. and make everything ready for EU funds commision approval. We generated large surplus from the planned expenses on the 3 lots of Trakia, that will cost us almost half chieper then what was projected in the OP Transport, so the plan is to use those saved money for the completion of the Sofia-SRB border motorway... You should be in a hurry - the part of the road on the Serbian side is longer and via a lot more difficult terrain and you have just ~8 km. U/C by now.

BTW; The ministers of transportation from Lithuania, Poland, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria and Greece signed today a declaration in support of Via Carpatia, a network of motorways to connect northern and southern EU through its eastern part. The scope of the declaration is to get the netowrk included into the TEN-T and therefore get EU funding for it.

As you see in the pictures below, there is also a proposal for the Romanian section of the so-called Corridor XI (which also is interesting for Serbia), included in the so-called Branch 3 of the Romanian section of Via Carpatia:

Good news Slowly, all the pieces are coming together

Corridor XI is already under construction in two places in Serbia - southwest of Belgrade towards Montenegro and around Vrsac, towards Romania - here's the latest video report from the Vrsac construction site.

That's good news! I think that the Ro gov plans to obtain financing for the whole Romanian section of C XI and putting it into Via Carpatia, besides lobbying for C XI per se at the Commission, are good signs for the Romanian committment to the project. Let's see if Via Carpatia gets into TEN-T cause that will bring C XI closer to financing.

Probably in the second link. You can see that there is no real entrance to the highway at that point, so if you look at the sattelite picture you'll see marks that indicate that a lot of people use that point to enter the highway.

You can see the road marking is faded away, so it's likely this isn't the only car that does that. I'm in favor of full interchanges.

There is a full interchange just 4 km further.
Fines are obviously too low for this kind of traffic violation in Serbia.

But, entering here at the exit ramp, one can bypass the toll booth that is located at next regular interchange entrance.

There is just no control at that point it seems. Looks like its more profitable for the police to fine people who are speeding than people who pull these crazy stunts because they are to lazy to drive 5 minutes longer. Or probably to even avoid toll...

SERBIA-TURKEY: KOLIN OFFERS TO BUILD MOTORWAY

Quote:
BELGRADE, OCTOBER 26 - Turkish company Kolin has submitted its offer to build a section of the Belgrade-South Adriatic motorway to the Ministry for the National Investment Plan, reports Tanjug news agency.

The offer, which also refers to the project's funding, was submitted before the deadline on October 15.

The next step is to start negotiating a financial contract, which will be done by the Ministry of Finance and the Ministry for the National Investment Plan, and a construction contract, which will be done by the National Investment Plan Ministry alone.

The construction contract will set the price, rights and obligations of the partner, pace of the work, home company participation and deadlines, and the public will be informed about it on time, says the ministry.

Minister for the National Investment Plan Verica Kalanovic said this summer that Kolin would probably build the 65km stretch of motorway from Belgrade to Ljig, and that 85% of the work would be funded by a loan taken out by the company, while the National Investment Plan would secure 15%. (ANSAmed).
