Kosovo needs highway from Pristina to Skopje over Ferizaj. Driving to Macedonia trough Ferizaj and Kacanik gorge are very dangerous - a lot of heavy trucks are making vehicle columns with risky passings

Yes, most definitely. The technical project has been prepared, and the Prime Minister is pushing the Ministry of Finance to issue an approval for a new tender for Route 7 (as it is called), but the Minister is reticent to start a new major project while Route 6, Vermice - Prishtina is on-going. According to some debates in the media and elsewhere, construction might start only in late 2012 or early 2013.

This highway will definately shorten the time between Kosovo and Albania. Finally after years of stagnation between us. By the way the construction looks pretty massive.

Taken from Kosovomotorways.com

Quote:
Engineering Challenge



- 102 KM motorway running through 6 important regions

- International standard design speed of 120 KM per hour
- Motorway modernizes the existing road network to comply with international standards




•Sectional Breakdown


The project is broken down into 9 Sections, going from the border of Albanian at Vermice to the North of Pristina.

To take advantage of the M9 current infrastructure upgrade from a two lane to a four-lane road (to be completed by 2011), the Route 7 Motorway will defer Section 6 and utilize the M9 to reduce the overall initial project costs.



•Technical Data


The motorway will be a two dual-lane carriageway designed to International standards and specifications, with a design speed of 120 km/hr throughout most of the motorway.
The alignment is based off the 2006 preliminary design with additional optimization to reduce project costs by diverting around the mountainous region, which eliminates the need for tunneling and additional large structures.
What this means that in most parts of the motorway will have a standard 120kmh speed limit! This is good news considering the mountainous region near Albania... I was kind of thinking speed limits would be between 80-110kmh similar to Albania.

Are you from Serbia? Can you give me some updates on the road being upgraded from Prokuplje to Kusumlije? I drove through this road about 3 months ago and work seems to be going very slow.... Is there no plan for a motorway from Nis to Merdare?

PS... By October this year Kosovo will have completed:

- Major flyover roundabout.

- Completion of first 34km of the motorway connecting to Albania. (Phase 1,2,3)

You can see the picture from Serbian thread.



Blue section in under reconstruction. Black section means road in bad condition. I'm living in Sjenica (Sandžak region), so I'm not informed about construction progress on this section.

Highway from Niš to Merdare is not priority, so, maybe one day, when you finish Morine - Merdare highway , Serbian government, maybe, will start an idea about connecting Niš with Kosovo. But if EU make a pressure on Serbia about all this situation about Kosovo, I can not tell you for sure about result...

Hmm.... Thanks for ther info, I think this trade block between the two sides will resume again... Nobody wins with trade embargo between countries... This is the typical balkan childish behaviour from both sides... Serbia has a very good market to fulfil and therefore will probably connect Prishtine with Nis... I hope anyway since it would be very convenient for me, considering the extreme bad road condition in south of Serbia close to the border with Kosovo.

+1 for Pristina-Nis highway. It has seen some serious traffic congestions recently, so construction of it must be first grade priority.

Its still not complete... It will be fully operational by the end of October and will reduce traffic in Prishtine hopefully.

I agree... Maybe, In few years both sides will be more tolerant for economy and trading, so we can believe in better days for Pristina - Nis highway. I'm glad to see nice progress on Merdare - Morine highway, and I'm expect more news for motorway to Macedonia in future
