If you write Skopje, most of them will know (at least those who heard about Skopje). Imagine if we (the Cyrillic countries) write the names of the cities in our alphabet or the way we pronounce them.

No hard fillings, I'm just saying.

My reply wasnt about that part, it was more about what he wrote after that.
And ofc its it should be the international name, but I'm pretty sure he didnt wrote that on purpose to "provoke" someone just because he called it the way we call it, we are used to call it Shkup, it doesnt change anything, its still the same city of the same country. If someone is really interested that where the highway ends, he could google where Shkup is and it shows Skopje in 2 sec.

Ofc no hard feelings, in generall you are right.

Second segment of Prishtina - Hani i Elezit motorway R6 was opened today. 11km long. All the work on the easy part has been completed and now it is only mountainous terrain remaining outside Kacanik towards the Macedonian border.

Edit. Distance on google maps shows 11km and not 14,5km as mentioned in official page:

I think the actual opened section (Babush - Ferizaj) is a bit shorter (11 km) than the constructed segment which goes south of Ferizaj until near a place called Gėrica on Google Earth. Google Earth shows that the Babush - Gėrica section (14.5 km) was almost completed in August 2017, but south of Gėrica construction was less advanced at that time. There doesn't seem to be an interchange at Gėrica, the next interchange would be north of Kaēanik.

The opened section from Babush to Bibaj (Ferizaj) is 11.1 km long. The next section to Doganaj/Gabrricė (north of Kaēanik) is 10.5 km long and is all alfalted, except for the interchange, and there are no intermediate interchanges. It is expected to be opened during Spring 2018. The next interchange is the terminus in Hani i Elezit.

Yea, you are right. I just measured the same distance and it is only 11 km like you say.
Not sure how they have come up with that number, but there is generally little fact information about the work, and more pure event info instead...

The 14.5 km figure probably corresponds to the contracted works, which extend a little ways south of the Ferizaj exit, but cannot open to traffic until the next phase is completed. It's quite common for politicians and press releases to mention the length of the contract instead of the section actually opened to traffic.

The current situation is this:

The basic works have been done just south of Kacanik the rest is really tough terrain and is not yet started. I expect the works to be done near 2021.

The red line is operational the yellow should be done in March.

Mr. Junk shush now, go away.

Works are being carried out on all but the last 5 km, which are not mountainous. A 2.7 km long viaduct is currently being built in the Kaēanik Gorge. Deadline is 31st of December 2018 for the entire route.

Here's some views from today, enjoy:

Not actually, the contract is for the entire route. 14.5 km seems to be up to the hill in Gėrlica. Doesn't make any sense mentioning it but they probably referred it because all works are completed up to there and from there to the next interchange only finishing touches remain to be completed.

Any idea when the compulsory liability insurance purchase upon entering Kosovo for tourist vehicles will end?

Couple of years, for sure. I read lately that the Insurance Bureau was working on an online purchase option. It is supposed to be introduced early next year.

That will end when Kosovo is joining the green card system. And this can only happen for UN member states... So figure it out

As ntom and stickedy already gave good answers I dont really need to post another one, but the insruance purchase may end within two years by an agreement between Kosovo and Serbia. But we will likely have paytolls on highway activated by then so the state can still get in the cash.

Until then, make sure to drive carefully because the insurance is more to protect the local drivers rather than foreign ones.
