I thought it would be New Zealand, Australia was too obvious.

Why? Well, I am not used to toll stations that much, I always thought that on Balkan there were toll stations with some exceptions only on main transit motorways. I know situation is a bit different, but still, this road is 4-laned road, with almost no shoulders, NJ in the middle, and it isn't lying on an important corridor.

Man, I still have to learn so much about transport network in Europe

^ In Slovenia we have to pay for a 10-km motorway. (Maribor-Austria) And we also had to pay for 2-lane expressways with hard shoulders, when we still had them. That Macedonian motorway lies on the 8th Pan-European Transport Corridor and between Skopje and Tirana, as you wrote it yourself. Ok, it's not so important yet, but it's also between Skopje and Ohrid. And it doesn't matter how important it is, costs of construction have to be compensated either way. Congrats on the 100th post.

Btw, it's your turn, scooby_101.

It's a turbine interchange, which allows higher speed on the interchange. They are cheaper than stacks, because they require less expensive bridges. They can be found all over the world, though they are not very common. They can be seen in Belgium for instance, but also in the United States.
