It is an old, cheap car. Very suitable to crash it on the rocks. And from the same geographic region (though I bet they have just found it somewhere on the used-car marked - you know "first came, first served"...).

"We will build seven thousand kilometers of new roads by 2014 "- Albania's PM Berisha

Balkan Business News Correspondent - 04.02.2011
The Albanian government, on Wednesday, approved the 2011-2013 medium-term budget, which Prime Minister Sali Berisha has not hesitated to call as a "lever of Archimedes, which will turn Albania in a developed country by 2017. Currently, Albania is ranked by international institutions as a developing country, but for the head of government, overcoming this phase will be after 7 years. During his speech, Berisha touched some of the sectors that supports medium-term budget of the three following years, ranging from infrastructure to the environment. With this budget, we finalize the construction project during the mandate of 7000 kilometers of road” said Albanian Prime Minister Sali Berisha reports Panorama.

That looks real nice, though I doubt if they can finish that bridge in 2 - 3 months time.

The reporter is saying that the workers are working 24h to finish the road before the opening of the touristic season..as the city of Vlorė is one of the main touristic places for Albania.

Very nice, I saw photos of the old one, quite nostalgic. What is the main border crossing into Albania from Montenegro? Directly to Shkodėr or via Han i Hoti?

There are two main crossing borders with MNE..the one is at Muriqan and the second one is the Hani i Hotit.At these moments most of the people pass through Muriqan as long as the construction of the new highway Shkodėr-Hani i Hotit will finish.(Expected to finish by the end of 2011).

Arabs to build Tiranė-Elbasan motorway
It seems that the government has solved the main problem for the construction of 31.7 km road from Tirana and Elbasan.
Arab banks will be financing the new highway, which stretches along a 4.2 km long tunnel.

The news was confirmed by the Ministry of Finance, under which the banks agreed with DUI Arab, Abu Dhabi and Kuwaiti Fund for a fund that covers the entire project.

"Banks have agreed to provide $ 400 million, but after completion of the project, estimated to obtain a loan amounting to 350 million dollars. In principle it is agreed the terms of the contract, which provided profitable for our party, "said the newspaper" Shqip "representatives of the ministry.

Race for the financing of road Tirana-Elbasan was concentrated among Arab and European banks, specifically between the OPEC Fund and the European Investment Bank, which had expressed interest in the project.

At first it seemed as if the government would link the agreement with the "West", as funding for the study of the project was allocated by the European Commission, but on-going negotiations, the Ministry of Finance found more advantages and convenience with Arab banks.

Great, this will substitute the twisty SH 3 between Tiranė and Elbasan, right? Elbasan is a major industrial center.

Yep.The actual road that links Tirana with Elbasan is an mountanious road build by communists as an easy way for non spending too much money.The new motorway will short distance between Tirana and ELB in 20 min.

Elbasan is the thirst largest city of Albania and yes is an major industrial center.

Used to be in communist times. Not anymore. The only thing of significance in Elbasan is the steel factory which produces about 550.000 tons of steel/iron a year.
90% of the industry in Albania today is concetrated in the Tiranė-Durrės region. And for good reason. Durrės is the main port in the country and Tirana is the capital. And they are only 25 minutes apart from each-other.

Elbasan is still an industrial center though as you mentioned with steel production. With Kurum producing there. Where as Durres is more of a trading port. Yes, it has lost a bit of its importance since communism ended.

The city is growing and lots of new business conveniently locate there. An example, this small business German investor.
