Work To Start In 2010 On Tirana - Elbasan highway
TIRANA, Feb. 10 - Work on a new highway between Tirana and Elbasan will start this year. And the new road will involve a long tunnel underneath the mountain range separating the two cities, Albania’s government said this week. Visiting Elbasan on Monday, Albanian Prime Minister Sali Berisha said the draft project for the Tirana-Elbasan highway has been completed, and work can now start. “I want to let you know that the construction on this highway will start this year,” Mr. Berisha said.

Tiranė - Elbasan is the first and most important segment of the Southern Axis project which we've been discussing here over the past few months.
Here's the technical data:

Length - 32km
Two Lanes - 12.5m
Two tunnels - 2.2km, 560m
Cost - ~150 million €

This project will be financed by the albanian government through loans from international banks.

I hope the Albanian government are not following the Greek footsteps with these loans. Greece right now is in a very bad way financially. Albania does not have the EU safety net.

It will never come to that point unless we become pathological liars. Greece's debt is currently 130% of GDP or probably higher.
Ours is 58% of GDP and we should get better.

Highway? In which form? A 2x2 motorway or just a high-quality road?

The Southern Axis project is being devised by a Kuwaiti based company and should be ready in the next 2-3 weeks. This according to the prime minister from his 2-hour interview on the political nightly show "Opinion" last thursday.
He mentioned that the Berat-Memaliaj segment will also include 2 tunnels. Not sure how accurate this is but we'll get better insight once the project is presented to the public.

It will cost somewhere around €250 million which is beyond city hall's budget. The Ministry of Transportation will have to get involved but knowing the long political feud between both these institutions along with other bureaucratic barriers, it will be some time till we see any progress with the Big Ring road.

I know these questions have probably been asked before :

How may km's of motorway does Albania now have?
How many do ye expect to have by a projected development end period say 2015?

Looks nice from this picture. But they still need to expand it to 3x3.

Probably a few hundred kilometers of first class motorway by 2015..lets see how the albanian economy continues to grow in the coming years and how strong the government will be. It has been growing at around 6% steadily which is good but hopefully it will increase even further in the next few years.
