Chinese CRBC picks local sub-contractor for motorway project:

Quote:

Bemax from Podgorica hired to carry out main works on Bar-Boljare highway


Thursday, 09/10/2015
Source: eKapia

China Road and Bridge Corporation (CRBC), which is building a priority stretch of Bar-Boljare highway, has decided to hire Montenegrin construction company Bemax to carry out main works, CdM reports.

CRBC will soon sign a contract with Bemax, which will be carrying out all kinds of construction works in several locations along the first stretch of the highway from Smokovac to Matesevo via Uvace.

As the daily Dnevne Novine reports, CRBC representatives are also actively talking with few more companies in addition to Bemax, and final selection and the number of construction companies to participate in main works will most probably be known by the week's end.

After that, pursuant to legislation, the list of new companies CRBC plans to hire to build aforementioned priority stretch of the highway will be submitted to the Montenegrin government for approval, which is also the last step before the main works can commence.

It is most likely that main works will begin by the end of September. Chinese and Montenegrin workers will be working together on several different locations along the first stretch, CdM reports.

But this thread is not about this or other roads, it's about highways.

Interesting,since this thread exists for more than 7 years now. Not bad for a country without any highways.

Wrong.
This thread is regarding whole road infrastructure in Montenegro.
That road is masterpiece of Austrian engineering in late XIX century, and it is normal to attract attention of visitors and tourists.

You know, once they've bypassed that thing, I hope they keep it open only to local traffic and make it a main bike route. It would be perfect for that use.

The bypass (Vrmac Tunel) is finished since 1991 (or better 2007). Traffic has declined significantly since the 1980ies. Back then it was the main road between Bay of Kotor (+ Adriatic sea) and Cetinje / Titograd (Podgorica)

Keep in mind it's a small country with only 600,000 people, and where road projects are usually not much more than paving or modernization. Constructing a full-blown motorway requires a large workforce of skilled workers.

The Netherlands also requires lots of foreign workers on construction sites. They are usually loaded with German and central European cars.

We do, and actually according to the contract, at least 30% of all works will be carried out by local firms. Possibly even more.

But it's not about that - it has to do with financing of the actual project and I have to say, as much I'd like to see, for example, Polish builders on the project, Polish banks didn't exactly line up to to finance the motorway.

It was Chinese Export-Import bank and thus, they get to dictate their terms, such as use of Chinese construction firms, in this case CRBC.

Yeah, there's that too

Some major news, long-planned Verige bridge is being brought up again:

Quote:
Saturday, 28 November, 2015 - 10:47 Source: Dnevne novine
Construction of Verige bridge will make ferries obsolete

After more than 15 years the talk on bridge construction which would directly connect Herceg Novi and Kotor via Bay of Kotor is being brought up again.

For construction of bridge Verige which will be a part of Adriatic highway company CRBC is interested which is in charge of building the first part of Bar-Boljare highway and which is internationally famous for magnificent bridges, it was reported by weekend edition of newspaper Novine.

Towards the west, the bridge leads to village Bijela, where the connection will be made with the existing road. On the east side of the bay the bridge is connecting to the existing road towards Tivat via a short viaduct.

"The bridge is of great significance for international and domestic market because it is on the path of Adriatic highway, and that is the only transit road in this area. The bridge is located in Bay of Kotor, in a place Verige, between Herceg Novi and Kotor", it was stated in a feasibility study.

The bridge is 981 meters long and has 2.5 kilometers of access roads. It is 22 meters wide which means it will have four lanes and a sidewalk with wind and noise protection. It was tested in European institutes for earthquake and wind and it cannot be destroyed practicaly unless a cataclismic event would occur. The test showed that it can sustain winds of up to 250 kilometers per hour. The height above the sea surface is 55 meters so every ship will be able to pass under it. It is in accordance with environment and cultural herritage protection.

For construction of this modern bridge several companies are interested, and the closest to getting the job at the moment is Chinese company CRBC.

Company CRBC will also build the bridge Moracica on the first section of the highway Bar Boljare, whose main pillar will be more than 180 meters tall.

Interesting. It doesn't even have to be an extraordinary large bridge, a circa 500 meter span can bridge the strait, with access roads in tunnels. The only problem is €€€

Not just that...since town of Kotor and surrounding Bay area is designated a UNESCO World Heritage site, any such projects will be scrutinized by them. So far, they've been very much opposed to any bridge, or other transit infrastructure in the area for that matter.

Here's an interesting read, a traffic impact study done for UNESCO:

Is there any reason why it can't be a tunnel? A bridge there seems to be remarkably ugly...

The depth of the strait may be an issue. I don't know how deep it is, but you need long access tunnels to descend into the bottom a fjord-like strait.

Aa far as I know UNESCO has already approved building of that bridge several years ago. There were corresponding press releases back then. Afaik everything is ready, it just needs money.
