it is almost impossible to build motorway trough Boka Kotorska bay.
The cheapest option is to build motorway from Ploce direct to BiH and to MNE near Niksic.

It won't go via Nikšić.

Something interesting...here where I live, in Canada, there's a very appropriately-named "Sea-to-Sky highway", connecting the west coast city of Vancouver with the mountain ski resort of Whistler.

Now, we have something similar in Montenegro - the new Risan-Niksic-Zabljak road:
Basically, you can now ski in the north in the morning, and by noon-ish, take a relaxing swim in the calm waters of Boka Kotor Bay.

And in addition this road will serve as feeder road to the adriatic-ionian motorway for Kotor bay in the future.

By the way: What about Verige Bridge across Verige street in Kotor bay? I thought that this bridge would be build some time But I haven't read anything about it in the past years

According to the development plan for Montenegro there will an expressway be built along the adriatic sea from Herceg Novi to Sukobin (croatian to albanian border). Is there anything known?

And last but not least: Cakor! Are there any plans to open the border to Kosovo in Rugova canyon soon?

A lot of people oppose the idea of building a bridge, a potential eyesore, in stunning Boka Kotor Bay. So a tunnel might actually be built instead, at some later stage when funds become available.

Chinese requested the prolongation of the deadline for motorway

10.5.2011 14:39:00 | Author/Source PressCut

Chinese companies interested in the construction of the motorway Bar-Boljare requested the prolongation of the deadline in order to correct the delivered offers and harmonise them with the requested model of public-private partnership. The Ministry of Transport and Maritime Affairs of Montenegro says that they have a dilemma about whether they would fulfil the Chinese request or reactivate the negotiations with the European Investment Bank.

The dilemma should be resolved in the session of the Government on Thursday. Chinese offers are based on long-term loans with a repayment deadline of 19.5 years, while the Government of Montenegro insists on public-private partnership.

Chinese out of the game

Quote:
12.5.2011 14:38:00 | Author/Source PressCut

The Montenegrin Ministry of Transport will suggest the Government’s Privatisation and Capital Projects Council to stop the negotiations with Chinese companies that are interested in the construction of the motorway Bar-Boljare.

A source stated that it was almost certain that the negotiations with the Chinese would be terminated. The reason for the termination is allegedly the greater certainty that the project of the motorway would be realised with the European Investment Bank than with the Chinese companies. The decision on the termination of the negotiations will be adopted on Friday, May 13, in the session of the Council.

They could have known this beforehand, now they wasted another half year with futile negotiations.

Work on the motorway was not purposeless

12.5.2011 11:10:00 | Author/Source PressCut

Even though the construction of the motorway Bar-Boljare is still uncertain, Montenegrin Minister of Transport Andrija Lompar will not file a resignation. He said that while answering the question of representative of the Movement for Changes (PZP) Branko Radulovic on whether he would file a resignation because of the fiasco with the construction of the motorway.

Lompar explained that, according to the data of the World Bank, there are currently 43 projects that concern motorway construction in the world and 35 of them were postponed. Only 8 cases have not been given up on ( ). According to him, the work and effort invested in the motorway cannot be considered purposeless.

Hopefully, some sort of arrangement will be reached with EIB & EBRD so work could at least begin on the least demanding and expesive section of the motorway and that's the one connecting the capital Podgorica with the Adriatic port town of Bar.

The mere fact that no motorways are currently U/C in Montenegro doesn't mean there's no new asphalt worth posting about .... today in Podgorica, new 300m bridge over Ribnica river was opened, part of the city's so-called "mini-bypass":

On the motorway in Brussels too

Quote:

30.5.2011 13:41:00 | Author/Source PressCut

Minister of Transport and Maritime Affairs of Montenegro Andrija Lompar will meet representatives of the European Commission and the European Investment Bank in Brussels next week and they will discuss further joint activities on the realisation of the project of construction of the motorway Bar-Boljare.

Negotiations of the Government of Montenegro with the Chinese officially started at the beginning of 2011, and Chinese companies were supposed to deliver the financial offer for the motorway on May 1. Chinese companies delivered a new offer on May 13 and agreed to the model of public-private partnership, but the risk insurance is still disputable.

Meanwhile, works on improving road conditions & safety ahead of the summer tourist season continue

Minister of transportation Andrija Lompar announced that there will be a new tender for Bar-Boljare motorway. Also EIB and European Commision will provide financial and tehnical support. New tender will be opened when all the documentation is prepared in order for it to be successful.

Is that railway bridge new? It seems to be in terrible condition?

This section is awfully narrow for a 4-lane road.

I am sure that there are no the structural problems with the bridge, it is only dirty.

Well, one can never be sure unless you're the civil engineer at the job, but this is how concrete generally looks when it ages. Half of the European bridges from the 1960's / 1970's look the same way.
