Hey guys, I cannot find a motorway from Kukes-Durres. Is there one for sure? I don't see it on Open Street Map or anywhere.

This motorway is finished on some sections. For example from Durres to Milot there is a rehabilitated 1+1 highway, Milot-Kalimash is a real motorway, and from Kalimash till border the motorway is still U/C.

That's because no one has bothered to edit Albanian part on OSM.Take your time and surf this thread.

Did you mean, this is opposite to Mavromati border crossing point (road Igoumenitsa-Butrint)?
What new about the road from Albanian border to the ferry near Butrint?

ATTENTION PLEASE... the check point in south of Albania, connecting KONISPOL town with Sagiada and Igoumenitsa it's called QAFE BOTE in Albanian state and MAVRO MATI (black eye) in Greek State, so please no confusion...
It's called QAFE BOTE or MAVRO MATI, it's the same, connecting KONISPOL with IGOUMENITSA!!! Best regards,

Of course I believe it! I just would like to know the route.

It turns out that some of the road Kukes-Durres drawn on OSM is in fact the motorway. But the rest is the old road and they're showing them in the same colour and design, so it's hard to know which one is old and which one is new.

Will this road be a motorway?

I'm trying to create a list of the motorways that exist or will exist in Albania in the next few years. I have these:
Durres-Tirane
Milot-Kalimash
(1x2 motorway: Durres-Milot)

In the future:
Tirane-Elbasan
Kalimash-Kukes

Here you have the tunnel:
http://www.openstreetmap.org/?lat=42...om=13&layers=M
The motorway is only marked as national road.

Does already exist a bridge near Butrint? I passed over there in 2006 using this cable ferry:



Excuse me for my questions, the info about Albania is still very poor. In 2006 I passed from Igoumenitsa(Greece)-Butrint-Saranda-Vlore-Dures-(suburbs) Shkoder-Muriqan-Montenegro. Now it is time to repeat the journey!

Can anybody write here, which exits are opened on your A1?

And what about exit-numbering? Same as Italy (no)? Your signage is absolutely same as in Italy .

Is on the internet some list of Albanian SH-roads? Here I found SH1-9, but on some photos I've seen SH30 or SH40.

And one more question (): Whats does it mean "RR40" on this road sign? Is it "Rruga rajonale"=Regional road? (according to Google Translator).
