Macedonian Minister of Transport and Communications Goran Sugareski said that 80 kilometers of gas pipelines will be built in Macedonia in 2018 as 40 million euros has been allocated from the state budget.
Minister Sugareski said that gasification is one of the top priorities of the Government, which is intensively seeking ways for gas pipelines to reach all municipalities in Macedonia, adding that some issues related to the expropriation of land have to be resolved before meeting the deadlines, which are 2020 for the pipeline sections between Negotino and Bitola, while the section from Skopje to Gostivar, including a leg to Tetovo, should be completed by late 2019.
