Traffic calming:

Traffic calming: Serbia is likely to net a tidy chunk of the €10bn Chinese infrastructure fund being dished out in Bucharest this week, mainly for its Belgrade-Adriatic motorway. At the same time, it embarks on a €390m five year project to rebuild 1,100km of other roads in the country. Two thirds of the money comes from loans by the EU’s EIB and EBRD and The World Bank, announced today. Above, on the way to Belgrade from Mali Zvornik on the Bosnian border.

Bentley Bucuresti:

Bentley Bucuresti: in a sure sign of something, Bentley has opened its 45th European dealership, in Romanian capital Bucharest. The new showroom is on Bulevardul Pipera, north of the city centre just inside the ring road, close to Baneasa Forest. Further down is a cluster of other dealerships, Porsche, Audi, etc, though Bentley has developed a brown field site from scratch. Star of the opening last night was this newly-launched 520bhp POA Continental V8 S. The manufacturer has sold 1,081 cars in Europe so far this year, up 14% on the same period in 2012.
