Preliminary technical studies forthe connection of the two Pan-European Corridors in the district between Sopotnica and Meseista

Engineering and construction of roads, subways, airfields, bridges and transport tunnels

The purpose of this paper is to promote a solution forthe connection of the two Pan-European Corridors i.e. the Corridor VIII and the Corridor X that go through the territory of Republic of Macedonia. Their single joining point is the city Skopje, and as a result we came to an idea to use their connection at another place. This connection is going to enable better railway traffic and circular motion over the rail in the country along with the uplift of the quality and service of transport in Macedonia. Moreover, we are taking about a single track section with normal width of the track section which connects both Pan-European Corridors in the districtbetween Sopotnica and Meseista.
