If i remember correctly the number was somewhere around 500,000-600,000 vehicles or persons (cant remember) during the summer. I think the article was even posted on here.

During 3 months of last summer...from Kosovo to Albania passed 250.000 cars and 600.000 people.

The main traffic in Albanian roads is in Tiranė-Durrės highway with 100.000 cars per day.

Tirana-Elbasan, opens tender for the road

Closes first phase of the tender to build Kėrrabės tunnel, part of the new road Tirana-Elbasan.

Learned that the tender procedure, held yesterday at the General Directorate of Roads, 25 companies participated known in the construction of roads.

The list of companies concerned there has been no known U.S. company Bechtel, which built the road-Kalimash Rrėshen, for 800 million euros, part of the Durres-Tirana highway.

Sources from the Department of Roads told the newspaper "Shqip", that have submitted tender offers and other companies, as Austrians "Strabag" and "Alpine".

"Tender developed considered the first step towards finalizing the contract. Can not give more information, since all bids are being reviewed and considered confidential. In the second phase, expected to develop after 10 days, will call those companies that have met preliminary criteria and observing documents, officials said roads.

For this project the government has allocated about 15 billion or 110 million euros and foresees the construction of the tunnel with two entry-exit and about 4 miles in length.

Link is in Albanian.

No they drove actually through the Llogara pass. To bad they didnt drive on there aswell, but what can you do about it. They went mostly through villages instead of big cities, but i guess that was part of their show. At least they seemed to enjoy the fighter migs and the subs.

The export to Kosova actually grew in 2010 with an 364.5% increase compared to 2009.
