From what I know, that motorway is for now out of the question due to the very rough terrain between BL & Zenica ... a single kilometer would cost double or triple the ammount of a kilometer along BL-Doboj motorway.

True. But the biggest problem is money (not the terrain), due to the economic situation in BIH and conflicts between the two entities But it should be in plans for the future, after other important project are finished (A1, BL-Doboj)...

Since there is already a direct motorway link to Serbia via Croatia (minus a small un-built section) it would make more sense to build this motorway to Zenica and Sarajevo.

@ YU-AMC - not because it would be heading toward Serbia, but because it is political opportunism, pandering, and unnecessary. That money should be used for so many more important things that could improve the living standards of its citizens. Remember the proposed airport at Trebinje, same story. Now the government of RS will spend millions on studies and consultant fees to political cronies.
I think they invested the money where they needed it the most, and that is Banja Luka-Cro border. So they can't really throw their money away if they go for Banja Luka Doboj....

These are the figures of registered voters for the local elections held in BiH in 2008. According to this and other available statistics (e.g. ID cards issued), Bijeljina is the second most populous municipality in the RS.

BANJA LUKA - 168.165

ZENICA - 95.384
BIJELJINA - 93.385

I could not care less even they have 200. We should focus on the motorways for now. You can check out some images of Banja Luka and development projects in our Serbian forum.

Construction of Banja Luka - Doboj motorway can now begin...

€150 million loan to upgrade key transport link in Bosnia and Herzegovina

EBRD lays foundation for road PPP in Western Balkans

Author(s): Ina Coretchi
Date: 26 April 2012
.
The EBRD is supporting the modernisation of transport infrastructure in Bosnia and Herzegovina with a €150 million sovereign-guaranteed loan for the construction of a part of the new Banja Luka-Doboj motorway. This segment is the main east-west link in Republika Srpska, one of the country’s entities.

In conjunction with this investment the EBRD will also support the preparation of the first public-private partnership (PPP) project for the main north-south link in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Doboj to Vukosavlje segment of Corridor Vc.

The Banja Luka to Doboj motorway is a 75 km road linking Banja Luka to the new Corridor Vc motorway at Doboj. The EBRD loan will be used to finance the construction of the eastern segment of the motorway, from Prnjavor to Corridor Vc at Doboj, with a total length of 37 km.

The loan has a maturity of 15 years and is structured in two equal tranches. The project is supported by technical assistance grants provided by the Bank and Western Balkans Investment Fund. The western segment of the motorway, from Banja Luka to Prnjavor, is expected to be financed by the European Investment Bank.

The project will facilitate the introduction and private sector participation in toll collection. Additionally, through this investment the EBRD will support the tendering of PPP contract for the Doboj to Vukosavlje section of Corridor Vc in Republika Srpska. This forthcoming project is expected to be one of the first road PPPs to be developed according to best international standards in Western Balkans.

“Modern infrastructure is imperative for the economic growth and regional integration of Bosnia and Herzegovina and the EBRD is firmly committed to support the development of reliable transport network in the country and the neighbouring region. Today’s signing in Banja Luka is an important milestone for the development of transport infrastructure in Republika Srpska,” said Sue Barret, EBRD Transport Director.

“We are looking forward to continuing our successful cooperation with the country’s authorities in order to increase the role of the private sector in the infrastructure sector and support the further development of Bosnia and Herzegovina,” added Libor Krkoska, Head of the EBRD Office in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

“This project is a continuation of successful cooperation with the EBRD. We managed to secure these funds to start the construction of the Banja Luka to Doboj motorway at the same time when we are completing the Banja Luka to Gradiska motorway including the Mahovljani interchange,” said Dusan Topic, General Manager of RS Motorways.

Since the beginning of its operations in Bosnia and Herzegovina, the EBRD has committed over €1.3 billion in various sectors of the country’s economy, mobilising additional investment of more than €1.6 billion.

But there should also be a motorway connecting Banja Luka and Zenica. This route could become important because there's A11 motorway planned in Croatia (Zagreb-Sisak-Kostajnica), which is partly built, so it could continue through BIH connecting couple of big cities (Prijedor-Banja Luka-Jajce-Travnik-Zenica-Sarajevo) and shortening the route between Zagreb and Sarajevo from ~370 km to ~300 km If so, there would be a modern road between Banja Luka and Sarajevo, better than today's M16+M5 and shorter than future BL-Doboj motorway

This is a good idea, I like it.
Are there any plans of connecting Banja Luka to Sarajevo by a freeway?

Yes there are, the construction of motorway Banja Luka - Doboj should start this year, motorway Sarajevo - Zenica is almost finished, so only remaining part would be Zenica - Doboj.
There are plans, construction is going on,how long it would take, that I do not know.
