MACEDONIA enters the modern age with a new comprehensive roads site with weather and traffic info but also need-to-know on tolls, rules for hauliers and the country’s future road building plans. FYI, R1201 runs 53km north-south between Struga on the north shore of Lake Ohrid (which Macedonia shares with Albania) and Debar on Lake Debar, in the west of the country.
