Bonds issued to fund highways in Slovenia, 1976

These two pictures are of the two bonds in the amount of 500 and 100 Yugoslav dinars, which were issued in September 1976 and September 1977 by the Socialist Republic of Slovenia in the Yugoslav federation.



The total amount from the bond issues was intended to finance the construction, reconstruction and modernization of highways and country roads on the territory of the Socialist Republic of Slovenia.



Viewed against the light, the bonds show continuous watermark in the form of a diamond pattern. The interest coupons of the bonds are still attached.



Very nice items and for the period of the 1970s, the bonds are an example of modern document design.

WIDEST-SPAN-BRIDGE IN THE WORLD COMPLETED

The bridge with the widest span in the world has recently been completed between the small island of St. Marco in the Northern part of the Adriatic sea and the coast. Thus Krk, Yugoslav largest island, has been transformed into a peninsula. The total length of the bridge, including the 96-meter-long crossing at St. Marco, is 1430 m.

Construction of 'Gazelle' Bridge in Belgrade, 1969

During 1950's and 1960's Yugoslavia went through massive industrialization, creating a modern society. Before Tito's Yugoslavia, only 20% of its population was living in cities and working in industry. By the end of 1960's, 80% percent of population was working in industry and earning middle-income salaries. To support this growing urban population, new infrastructure was needed to support it. New highways, railroads, bridges, power plants etc. were built all over the country in record times. Here is a news agency story of one such bridge, a symbol of Yugoslav capital, Belgrade.

Gazelle Bridge ('Most Gazela' in Serbo-Croatian) is the busiest bridge in Belgrade, carrying more then 165,000 vehicles daily, even though when originally built, it was built for traffic of around 40,000. It spans across the Sava river and was built as a part of Yugoslav highway system, specifically "Highway of Brotherhood and Unity" ("Autoput Bratstvo-Jedinstvo" in Serbo-Croatian) which connected Slovenia, Croatia, Serbia and Macedonia. Keystone Press Agency informed the world about the moment when construction workers finally met in the middle.

Years of Construction: 1966-1970

There is a second publication from the "RSD" about the planned German "through" motorway from the late 30s and WWII years. The motorway was directed from then German Wroclaw, to then German Wienna, through then Czech and later "protectorate" Brno. Unfortunatelly, it is in czech language.

I'm dumb. I searched on youtube TopGear Transfăgărășan and one of the results was that one. I posted it before checking if it's really what I wanted.

This video is definately from that road:

Yes, it is used, but only during the summer. The road is closed only during the winter, when mantainance would be too expensive due to masive snow falls in the area and risk of avalanches.

The fastest route from Pitesti to Sibiu (the one on which the majority of drivers take) is through Ramnicu Valcea, on the Olt valley (148 km - map).

Transfagarasan is used mostly by those that want to admire the landscape. This route is also longer (187 km - map) and the average speed is lower.

PS: There are some voices that say that maybe next year there will be a bid for choosing the contractor in a PPP project for a direct motorway between Pitesti and Sibiu (via Curtea de Arges).

The opening of slussens inner city cloverleaf in Stockholm in 1935.


Construction of Centralbron (The Central bridge) in 1958


Essingeleden in 1966, only one lane has been opened and Sweden still drives on the left.

Essingeleden opened 21 August 1966. Sweden switched from driving on the left side of the road to the right side in 3 September 1967. So they was driving on the left side at Essingeleden in a little bit more than one year.

The picture is between junction 159 and 160. But in that time there were no numbers at the junctions in Sweden. Look at the old signs at the road.
