-With this project Skopje will finally get new boulevard that will break another bottleneck in this part of town. The completion of the boulevard will largely contribute to the greater bandwidth of vehicles and rationalize the existing road network. All this will reduce crowds, hassle and time it takes to get to work or home. When we will  finish this project we’ll send in the past cues of vehicles formed behind the trucks and buses on this street and numerous unsafe overtaking of drivers who put their lives at risk, said Gruevski.
