EU Funding Kick-Starts Serbian Road Building

Civil war turmoil took a heavy toll on the roads of the former Yugoslavia, particularly those in Serbia. This article discusses some of this damage, as well as describing how these roads are being rebuilt or rehabilitated. During the turbulent 1980s, Serbia's roads were inadequately repaired at best and damaged by bombs at worst. Funds from the European Union are being used to rehabilitate or upgrade the central highway that forms a north-south spine from Croatia through the rest of Europe in the northwest, to Macedonia in the south. Most of the work is simple reconstruction of the roads, although some funds are being given for the reconstruction of a bridge and a greatly expanded border crossing into Hungary.
