Mostly Kosovar companies, but also from Albania, FYROM, etc. There are also Austrian, Greek, Italian, German, Turkish, American companies interested in building motorways. One of them will be pronounced the winner of the tender to build an 118km motorway this January according to the ministry of transportation. The most serious contenders are Bechtel-Enka, Alpina, etc.

"As stated Minister of Transport, Fatmir Limaj, the winner will be announced on January 15, both scheduled to take place", has emphasized Pozhari.

According to him, delays have occurred on this issue because they have also asked people interested companies for the construction of highway Vėrmica - Merdar.

If both the member of the Inter-ministerial Commission for highway, Zharku Lutfi, Minister for Commerce and Industry, everything is going according to terms of planning for this project. "When the Transport Ministry will convene the meeting of the Inter-ministerial Commission, we also will announce the winner. As was foreseen to carry out this process, and is going ", has emphasized Zharku.

Of the 30 companies as they compete for expression of interest, consulting company contracted by the Ministry of Transport had proposed that the list be close company EAIR "(Austria)," Bektel-Enka "(US-Turkish)," Makioll " (Turkey), "Pizaroti" (Italy), "But" (Austria), "Strabag" (Hungary) and "Terna (Greece).

18/01/2010 16:15:00


The government today took the decision to begin negotiations to sign a contract with the company "Bechtel & Enka, for construction of Motorway Vėrmica - Pristina - Merdare. The cost of one kilometer will be 7.5 to 8 million euros. While little has changed traseja (track) length, compared with previous plans that have existed. Completion of negotiations, is expected to give the exact meters, how will the cost be the length of the route.

Sahadete Zogaj

Kosovo Government has decided to begin negotiations to sign a contract with the company "Bechtel & Enka, this company which is ranked first for the construction of a highway Vėrmica-Pristina-Merdare, after technical evaluations foreseen by the laws in force . Construction of a highway two companies are qualified, it "Bechtel Enka" and "Shtrabak" (Strabag), but the Steering Committee, has estimated that the company which has received the highest grades and which should start negotiations for conclusion of the contract is "Bechtel & Enka ".

Prime minister, Hashim Thacci, has claimed that Kosovo from the beginning and the construction of highway Vėrmica - Pristina - Merdare, will have major benefits, as through this highway, Kosovo related to the European corridors, create modern infrastructure of high standards European country to accelerate economic development and create thousands jobs.

"State of Kosovo, will have very easy access to international markets and will facilitate movement of people and goods", has confirmed Thaci.

While Fatmir Limaj, minister of Transport and Post - Telecom, has confirmed that after work has been done a long time, is reached at the end of this great process.

"Today we are in the final moment, where eventually the technical and financial assessments, is open the possibility of early closure of the negotiations, to contract with company" Bechtel & Enka, which is winning in terms of technical and financial evaluation by the selection list "he said.

The government, according to him has emerged as a key priority, the construction of a highway. So he said Morine highway - Pristina, would be access highway exit, only to key highway, closed system with width of 28 meters, where 4 bands will be floating by 3.75 meters, two belt for a slowdown, the three meters and the green belt between the width by 4 meters. According to his Vėrmica in Suva Reka, will be used traseja existing 37.7 miles of road. In a segment of Highway C and D, will be used traseja existing under the previous project Pristina - Besi.

Limaj said eventually Pristina International Airport, will be introduced in the highway system and for the first time, will have half a ring, outside the city of Pristina, where is the link of Podujeve area towards the Airport, which connects Highway Highway Durres and the future direction will be in Skopje.

Limaj also said that according to the company's alternative proposal would have a change trasesė, the crossroad of highway R6 and R7, R9 to cross, in length of 11.6 kilometers. The offer presented by the company "Bechtel & Enka, includes construction of two phases of the highway segments. The first phase included the construction of segment A1, A2, and B3, Vėrmica - Prizren - Suva Reka - Orllat, in length of 60.7 kilometers, which is expected to be completed within 24 months from the date of commencement of works, in a cost of approximately 7.5 Dej to 8 million euros for a kilo. The second phase included the construction of segment Slatina - Besi, in length of 27 kilometers and is expected to be completed within 36 months from signing the contract, at a cost of approximately the same from 7.5 to 8 million euros per kilometer.

"According to the company's proposal for 36 months, expected outcome of all Motorway from Bresje in Slatina - Orllat, this is the part that is government investment, then proceed by Orllati in Vėrmica" said Limaj.

Assessment and Inter-ministerial Committee, under Limaj have examined in detail all the alternatives, which are granted and the bid submitted by "Bechtel & Enka", for a deviation of the segment, which begins after the disconnection of Suhareka, before they start raising the neck The Duhlės, and avoiding mountainous terrain, and down the mountain around. He said the assessment with this deviation will be saved on a budget which can be used to build another highway, Pristina - Skopje.

I dont think it is very excelent news since the motorway (understandably) will not extend to Merdare and the part from Peja to Prishtina will use the existing road still under construction which will be at expressway standards. It would have been better for Kosovo to set up an international donation fund account for all Albanians to contribute rather than leave parts of the motorway untouched.
