Starting from the end of May, Macedonian citizens will be able to travel to Serbia and Kosovo by using two new highways. Both countries, almost simultaneously, are finishing up the building of two highways that will provide faster traveling to Pristina and Nish. The Serbian Minister of Building, Transportation and Infrastructure, Zorana Mihajlovic announced today that in the next 10 days, the highway that leads through the Grdelica canyon will be open for traffic.
-We are opening a new highway that leads through the Grdelica canyon in the length of 26.3 km, which is the last part of the Southern part of Coridor 10 – stressed Minister Mihajlovic. This part of the Pan-European corridor was the only one that wasn’t upgraded to a highway. With its completion, the citizens of our country will be able to shorten the time for travel towards Nish.
Almost at the same time, the Kosovar media also informed that the Arben Xhaferi highway that links Pristina and the border crossing Blace will be open for use on the 29th of May. The constructions company is ending its works on the bridge that is passing through the Kachanic canyon in the length of 6 km.
The Arben Xhaferi highway is 65.56 km long and near Pristina, both the Arben Xhaferi and the Ibrahim Rugova highways intercross thus providing the fastest link for our country with Albania and Montenegro.
