"SH" is used for "Shqipėria"(Which mean "Albania"..we identify our country with that name).

"RR" mean "Rruga"(Which in Albanian mean "road").The "RR" is used to divide the main highways from second roads.Or as u said ..regional roads.I can't explain the "30" or "40" number.

Well I found for example SH30, SH40, SH52 or SH85 on Google Earth an OpenStreetMaps.


And what about exits? How many are on section Rrėshen-Morinė? I found only Rrėshen, Reps and Klos.

Also I would like to ask several (maybe stupid ) questions. (I'm working on Slovak Wikipedia on Albanian road system). Info on the Internet are really poor.

So, you have only one motorway A1 Durrėes-Kukės-Morinė.
  • section Durrės-Vorė is built in parameters of "Autostradė" and it's a part of SH2.
  • setion Vorė-Fushė Krujė is a part of SH52 and it is "Superstreadė" and it is being upgraded to "autostradė".
  • section Fushė Krujė-Shullaz - part of SH1 - Superstredė being upgraded to Autostradė.
  • section Shullaz-Rrėshen is Superstradė being upgraded to Autostredė
  • and section Rreshėn-Morinė is a real motorway ("Autostradė").

Section Durrės-Vorė and all superstredė sections are marked with blue signs with SH-numbers. The motorway in NE Albania is marked as A1 with green signs.
Am I correct? Will the superstradė sections after their upgrading to autostradė resigned to green colour and A1-markings?

And what about toll on these superstradė sections after upgrading?

Is there any company in Albania which maintains the roads in country?

Thx for info

In fact..all 4 lane highways are called "Autostrada".So,except A1 we have Tiranė-Durrės as SH2,Durrės-Rrogozhinė(u/c..it will expanded in 4 lanes)..Rrogozhinė-Lushnjė ,Lushnje-Fier, Fier-Vlorė and Fushė Krujė-Milot which last 2 are u/c.

"Superstradė"=1X1 high speed road.

The old section Fushė krujė-Vorė is rarely being used now after the road of Airport has finished.I mean...most of the drivers use the road of the airport to reach Fushė Krujė.

For what else u wrote above...u'r right.

From what i have seen with the newly builded Autostrada's...the signs colour have being changed..."Green" for Autostrada's and "blue" for roads/superstrada's.I believe that the ministry of transport will change the signage of whole Tiranė-Durrės.As u see in the photo below...they use the "green" for Autostrada Tiranė-Durrės and "blue" for superstrada "Tiranė-Fushė.Krujė"

When all main autostrada's will finish construction..they will be baptized as "A1 with 4 lanes"(According to ministry of transport site).And their colour will be green.
