10,000 Flowers to Grace Central Part of New Roundabout in Skopje's Avtokomanda Settlement

A new roundabout connecting the settlements of Zelezara and Avtokomanda in the capital Skopje was put into service on Tuesday.

The MKD­ 53.6 million roundabout, financed by the City of Skopje, is expected to boost traffic safety in the northern and eastern part of Skopje, said Skopje Mayor Koce Trajanovski at an inauguration ceremony.

The roundabout, Gazi Baba municipal mayor Toni Trajkovski said, is the fulfillment of a promise made to local residents, because the old intersection was the site of many traffic accidents in the past.

The roundabout, with a 60-­meter diameter, features two nine-­meter traffic lanes, a 3­-meter pavement and a 2.5­-meter bike lane.

Attending the inauguration in Avtokomanda, VMRO-­DPMNE leader Nikola Gruevski said the project had been successfully completed so as to provide better traffic safety.

At the site, he was informed by Mayor Trajanovski that infrastructural projects estimated at MKD 1 billion and 92 million were being implemented in all 10 Skopje municipalities, including Saraj, Gjorce Petrov, Centar, Kisela Voda, Aerodrom, etc.

The central part of the roundabout will be decorated with over 10,000 flowers and a irrigation system will be set up to water the central and surrounding greenery.
