1,6 bln for 175km is still extremely cheap, if you see that they spend that amount of money for one 4km tunnel alone here, and what do you think of a motorway here that is supposed to be build for 100mln per kilometer? (through flatter than flat landscape).

But you can go to Tirana though

If you go from the interchange A2/A7 to the northeast with the A7 (Grevena), you can take another motorway under construction from Siatista through Kastoria and get to the albanian border. To Tirana there are than only about 150 km (Korca, Ohrid lake, Librazhd, Elbasan). It's the paneuropean corridor 8.

Come on, guys. Think big. Athens to Tirane, then to Podgorica, then Dubrovnic and Split, then it's motorway to Paris or whatever. Ought to be done about the time wheeled transport becomes obsolete except in Albania.

Developments in Croatia and Montenegro

Sorry if I post this here, but this is the continuation of my last post.
The transportation ministers of Bosnia (there is a small 30 km stretch between Croatia and Montenegro that goes through Bosnia, see the map) and Montenegro met in Podgorica, Montenegro on the 5th of June. The agreed that the continuation of the Adriatic-ionian Motorway construction and its completion are a common interest and a priority for Croatia, Montenegro and Bosnia. As known, the Croatian part of the motorway will reach the port of Ploce at the end of 2008. The expert groups of the both countries are going to establish the contact points in the next 20-25 days (end of June), which is a necessity in order to make the feasibility study possible. http://www.pobjeda.cg.yu/naslovna.phtml?...vview&id=119565
Minister Lompar of Montenegro will pay a visit to his Albanian collegue soon. They should discuss the line of the Adriatic-ionian Motorway. The tender for the feasibility study in Montenegro is going on till the 22nd of June. The best offer will be chosen till the 12th July. The study should be finished at the latest in January 2008.

Completion of the Adriatic-ionian Motorway

I guess Croatia could complete its stretches in 2010, only the Peljesac bridge should be built till 2011.
Montenegro has to build 110 km. They could start in 2009 and it could last 2-3 years.
Albania is building all the stretches, but at least some parts will not be build as a motorway (from Fier to the Greek border). It could be upgraded when the traffic increases.
A small problem could be Bosnia, which should build a small 30 km stretch between Dubrovnik and Montenegro. I think Croatia or Montenegro and some investors can help, if Bosnia is willing to give a concession.

This one looks great, i like the crashbarriers, so should crashbarriers look, especially on pic 3 where some very shiny ones start and not like in Germany, Poland and Croatia with new crashbarriers that look like old Iron crashbarriers. Go greece!

I like it that in the Balkans the people are used to some old bumpy roads which are anything but beautiful, they have potholes and it is dangerous to travel on them, when you don´t care you drive in big holes and it shakes your car quite a lot but then of a sudden extremly new shiny impressive motorways pup up and it is something extremly different,don´t know how others feel but i feel very hpappy when i see this, you imediatelly think you are somewhere in western europe in a rich country. This is really a contrast and it is great. I find that in the Balkan countries such new roads or rails whatever look even better because they are very stressed, you travel on the new roads which look great and see for example dirty gipsie gethos, like in Belgrade or Sofia and feel somehow very srange.

Well this thread is about a rich Western European country!

Greece Nominal GDP per Capita: $30,603


Seriously though, I too love these roads poping up around the Balkans. Very nice indeed.
