Great news today - looks like work on Belgrade's motorway ring-road will be accelerated.
Its about time for that, since the whole project has dragged out for far too long

Google-translate article...

Quote:
After three years and complicated international tenders, the ring road around Belgrade again is a great building site. These are the four sites, but due to tight deadlines, work will be accelerated on the entire route.

Beltway around the capital, which should be completed by 2013. year, costs as much as the northern branch of Corridor 10

Public Enterprise Roads of Serbia "is currently one of the largest investors in the Balkans. Money for the bypass is coming from international loans, and, as things now stand, will be achieved and high savings.

The director of "Roads of Serbia Zoran Drobnjak said that the investment worth 105 million euros, a credit worth 155 million euros was obtained from the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development European Investment Bank.

"The difference of 50 million euros will spend to complete a full profile of the highway from Dobanovci to Ostruznica. 1,000 workers will be hired, and the deadline for completion is April 1, 2013. In," Drobnjak said.

Work began on the loop Batajnica, where two local companies are building two bridges length of 1,500 meters, which have 50 columns and four entrance ramps. This loop redirected traffic from the Novi Sad times at Dobanovci and the already constructed bypass.

"Firms 'Ratko Mitrovic' and 'Planum' this summer plans to build two bridges employ 400 workers, which will be enough to get the job done in time," said the head of the construction site on Loop Batajnica, Radivoje Radic.

Bridges most complicated part of bypass

Highway from the direction of the loop Batajnica Zagreb-Belgrade Dobanovci loop including a loop, build the Austrian "Strabag", whose local sub-contractor firm Interkop. The value of work is 29 million euros.

Dragan Ršumović from "Strabag" says it will increase the number of workers and machinery in accordance with needs.

The most complex part of the ring are three bridges of Orlovaca to drum Potok, 5.4 kilometers long. They bring together a tunnel Strazevica "the loop" Orlovača "on the move largely lays the foundation pillars of future bridges.

Dejan Bulajic from "Coast Ajdovščina" says the longest bridge of 630 meters for the company, while the other two of the 550 meters and 70 meters for "Ratko Mitrovic ".

According to him, the part of workers and machines came from Slovenia and they fit nicely.

Belgrade bypass began to be built at the beginning of the nineties. Its completion izmestiće the transit traffic from the city center and rasteriti bridge "Gazelle" by 2013. year.

Interesting fresh aerial photo of the Dobanovci interchange:

Are you sure this will be a motorway and not a single carriageway high-speed road?

Suprisingly very few details are known about this bypass ... while its imagined as a dual carriegeway, I'm guessing it will be a similar story as with the Belgrade bypass - by October, some sort of half-profile section will be opened, and after a few years (hopefully by 2015), it could be widened into a full-profile motorway.

Finally, a decent update from the construction site of the 12,5km Ub-Lajkovac section of the future Belgrade-Bar motorway - itself part of so-called Corridor 11, linking Romania (Timisoara) with Italy via Serbia & Montenegro.

Map - its marked as Section 4 here:

It has been said that, as work wraps up this summer on the northern sections of Corridor 10 (Novi Sad-Horgos/HU border), machinery & manpower will be transfarred to the Ub-Lajkovac section of Corridor 11, since work on both of these important motorways is being carried out by the same consortium of domestic firms.

Greek firm " "Terna S.A." offered the lowest price for construction of two tunnels (Przojna Padina & Progon), total length of 1,7km, along Dimitrovgrad bypass (Nis-Dimitrovgrad/BG border motorway) - 3,83 billion dinars. Final decision on awarding the contract will be made within the next 30 days, so work would begin in June, with a deadline of 24 months.

Fewer fatalities in road accidents in Serbia

Quote:
Belgrade, 27 April 2011 – First Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of the Interior Ivica Dacic stated today that since the enforcement of the new Law on road safety, the number of fatalities in road accidents has been reduced by 19%.

Opening the Decade of Action for Road Safety in the UNECE region, Dacic said that since December 2009, when the new law was put into force, the number of injuries and the severest road accidents dropped by more than 10%.

The First Deputy Prime Minister noted that the much stricter new Law on road safety is considered one of European achievements that can save a great number of lives.

Constant educational campaigns for children are of paramount importance, he underlined, adding that the protection of the youngest participants in traffic in Serbia is a top priority.

There are campaigns all over Serbia, aimed at educating children about how to behave in traffic, Dacic observed, pointing out the importance of sharing the experience of the Serbian road police with their counterparts in Europe in order to boost the overall situation on roads.

The new law is being enforced rigorously and without compromise, despite difficult conditions under which the road police work, he said.

Minister of Education and Science Zarko Obradovic stressed that the relevant Ministry, in cooperation with the Ministry of the Interior, is striving to educate children and help them realise the importance of safety in traffic.

He said attention must be paid to improving communication between the police, students and teachers, adding that last year 580 police officers and educational counsellors were trained.

Apart from enhancing the overall general education programme, the relevant Ministry plans to develop programmes for students, teachers and parents in order to create even better conditions for a safe participation of the young in traffic.

Global experience in this remit suggests that one plan of action should imply broad educational and media activities in order to help children adjust to traffic, and the other plan should imply solutions to dangerous spots with increased child safety risks, he explained.

The gathering was welcomed by Minister of Infrastructure and Energy Milutin Mrkonjic, who underscored that the government is doing its best to ensure safety on roads for Serbian citizens.

Director of the Road Safety Agency Stojan Jovanovic recalled that from 2001 until 2010, the number of road accidents in Serbia decreased by 48.3%, announcing the formation of a working group to bring together representatives from all ministries competent for traffic.

Executive Secretary of the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe Jan Kubis stressed that regulations are not the only thing of consequence for safety in traffic, but that good road infrastructure also plays an important role, which is why Serbia should work on this.

Apart from Serbia, participants in the meeting were Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belgium, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Croatia, Georgia, Italy, Sweden and Turkey.

Though politicians all over Europe like to write such successes to their own accounts through their new laws, the real reasons for the drop in traffic fatalities is improved road infrastructure and vehicle safety. Many more people are now able to afford newer, safer cars, that will be much better in protecting its passengers in severe crashes. Road accidents and fatalities are dropping all over Europe and Serbia is no exception of course. Improving dangerous intersections, building new motorways and a more modern vehicle fleet are of much bigger influence on traffic safety than enforcement of laws. Of course the impact of awareness programs and enforcement of road laws cannot be ruled out, but I believe the effect of them is over-estimated by policymakers.

Many old cars in Serbia were scrapped after being traded towards purchase of new vehicle.

And the international financial crisis (which is not yet finished) has reduced the traffic in all European countries, so the accidents have decreased, too.

I like this motorway. Sometimes I use this motorway and I think it's nice. For me this motorway giving me the real motorway feeling.

But I just miss the old SOX-lights that was on this motorway before.
