It has already been explained to you that by "new" it is meant newly built and/or reconstructed.

can someone make a list of the important roads in albania that were rehabilitated or built? Indeed 6000km seems a lot to me, it's almost half the kilometres of national roads in Romania. But it is simple, with a list you can erase our doubts.

Ask the Democratic party of Albania. They should have the time to make such a list you've asked.

btw: Albania has something about 20.000kms of roads. To pave 6.000 of them is not a miracle.

6000km = national + regional + local roads.

I don't really know. But it's just a claim made by the party that was in power during the elections so not sure why there's so much debate over it.

Tallest Wall Built For Albanian Motorway Project



Geotechnical specialists, Maccaferri has designed what is thought to be amongst the tallest reinforced earth retaining walls ever to be built in Europe, for a motorway construction project in Albania.

It is one of 30 reinforced earth retaining walls, all over 15m tall, designed by Maccaferri for the 171km long motorway which crosses the country through spectacular, mountainous terrain from the Adriatic Sea to Kosovo in the north east.

The largest wall is sited in the remote central region of the country, between the towns of Reshen and Reps. It retains over 140,000 cum of back fill and has a face area of approximately 3,500 sqm. With a wall length of 200m and height of 38m, it makes this one of the tallest reinforced earth structure of its type in Europe. It was completed on schedule in May 2009.

Maccaferri was brought as element design partner by JV construction group, Bechtel-Enka, because of their specialist experience in reinforced earth, retraining wall construction. Maccaferri also provided supervision and construction management through its local sub-contract partner, Albania Draht.

The retaining walls are designed as hybrid reinforced earth geogrid wrap-around structures, built in conjunction with hard, stone-filled, Gabion Terramesh facings. Paralink 300 uniaxial polyester geogrid is the principal reinforcing element, sandwiched at 500mm or 1000mm vertical increments between layers of compacted back fill.

Many sections of the motorway run alternatively through large, steep embankment-fill sections and slope cuts. The availability of large quantities of rock fills generated by the slope excavations made the choice of reinforced earth embankment fills a more cost effective alternative to the construction of viaducts.

The Maccaferri/Bechtel-Enka partnership arrangement is typical of the direction Maccaferri is taking with complex international projects.

In the UK, the company has offices in Oxford, Perth, Dublin and Belfast and operates over a wide range of geotechnical and civil engineering disciplines.

Construction of the Albanian Motorway project was scheduled for completion in summer 2009.

There is a reason why there aren't such structures in other countries. I'm not saying it's bad to build motorways, but perhaps sometimes it's wiser to save more money and later build a tunnel rather than destroying the environment like this.

Kamza overpass. In my opinion they should extend it to the whole Tirane - Durres. The traffic warrants it.

Speed limit of 20? That's a bit too slow, isn't it?

It's a mountainous and curvy road. Maybe 30km/h?

You're kidding right?

Both ways are scenic. I went through Gjirokastra and it has some beautiful mountains. Save the ghost town of Memaliaj which should be demolished. Everything was good.
