NEWS UPDATE!!!!!

Earlier today, the official project of the future Tiranė-Elbasan motorway was presented to the public. This is the first segment of the much talked about Southern Axis project. Here's the technical details from the Ministry of Transportation website:

Length: 31.17km
Lanes: 4
Tunnels: 2 (2.3km and 2.1km)

Included in the project are seven overpasses, four underpasses and three intersections. Speed limit is 110 km/hr.
Again, this is the official data of the final variant chosen.
I'll discuss more about this later tonight.

Ok, so here it is again. The official presentation of the future Tiranė-Elbasan motorway presented earlier today by Ministry of Transportation officials and the Prime Minister himself.
It's the first segment of the Southern Axis project, which aims to connect the capital Tirana with the southern district of Tepelenė.

The Route

Tiranė - Lundėr - Mullet - Elbasan = 31.17km

[IMG]http://i42.************/ncm3pk.png[/IMG]

The technical data mentions two tunnels, 2.3km and 2.1km respectively. I'm not sure if it's two galleries parallel to each-other (entrance+exit) or two separate tunnels at different geographical points. As mentioned earlier, 7 overpasses, 4 underpasses and 3 intersections are planned for construction.
A total of 21 viaducts are also included in the project with a length of 4.65km.
The motorway will have 4 lanes with individual widths of 3.75m. Total speed limit is 110 km/hr.

I just read the pdf file of the project and it's in fact one long tunnel with two galleries. It's located in Krraba Pass (Qafė Krrabė).

Nice plans

Are they also upgrading the Tiranė - Durrės highway? I thought they wanted to add frontage roads to prevent driveway access immediately to the main lanes?

Yes but at the moment that segment is not a priority. Just last year they added new asphalt and extended parts of it to three lanes.

Southern Axis project will include several tunnels according to the prime minister. One of those segments is Berat-Tepelenė, 40km.

Elina Demai, ALBANIAN TIMES

A new stretch of highway, running from the capital of Albania, Tirana, to Elbasan, further south, has been presented and is expected to be completed within two years. The first phase of this project will see a new highway stretching approximately 31km, consisting of 4 lanes, with two tunnels extending 2.3 and 2.1 miles being constructed between these two cities, with further stages planned to extend the motorway to Berat and Tepelene.

Elbasan is located on the Shkumbin River in the district of Elbasan. It is one of the largest cities in Albania with a population of around 100,000.

While the Prime Minister, Sali Berisha has acknowledged this project presents a greater cost, the benefits are clear and will significantly contribue to the development of Elbasan. This highway will decrease the journey between these cities by at least 40 minutes.

The tender procedure for the construction of Tirana-Elbasan motorway will be launched in June, deputy minister of public works Ernest Ndoka said in an interview for Albanian Times.

Earlier today, the official project of the future Tirana-Elbasan motorway was presented to the public. This is the first segment of the much talked about Southern Axis project.


Technical details from the Ministry of Transportation:

Length: 31.17km

It's the first segment of the Southern Axis project, which aims to connect the capital Tirana with the southern district of Tepelena.

Southern Axis project will include several tunnels according to the prime minister. One of those segments is Berat-Tepelena,
