Durrės is the second largest industrial center in Albania today. Main producer of alchoholic beverages, cigarettes, textiles.. etc
It will surpass Tirana even, once the Spitalla Industrial Park is complete. A total area of 850 hectares of land have been earmarked for this project. Biggest in Albania.
After Durrės, the other two major industrial centers in the country are Vlorė and Fier. Vlora being the second largest port is the economic center of the south. Major tourism industry. Vlora Industrial Park currently u/c north of the city lies in an area of roughly 125 ha.
Fier on the other hand is the main oil producing region in the country. In fact, the Patos-Marinza oil field is the largest onshore oilfield in Continental Europe.

I know about Fier being an oil producing region (currently around 12,000 bopd). Which gets sent to Vlore for processing and then export to Italy.

So how would you rate in terms of economic importance?

Tirane
Durres
Fier
Vlore
Elbasan
Shkoder

I would put Vlorė ahead of Fier and Korēa below Elbasan but not far off. Shkodėr on the other hand is not a major producer of anything significant. Northern Albania in fact is the least developed part of the country.

The IDB is negotiating a loan agreement of 300 million dollars and the rest of nearly 200 million total funding of the road will be funded through other credit institutions international financial contributions and the Albanian government, "said Deputy Minister of Finance, Nezir Haldeda.

In the tender for construction of the tunnel part of the highway Tirana-Elbasan, 26 companies participated, while in the second phase of the tender were selected 12 companies. Official sources from Ali, announced that very soon will complete the process of evaluating the bids and the winning company will be announced. In total, the project cost for construction of Tirana-Elbasan road is expected to go to about 440 million euros, while its construction is expected to finish the first half of 2013.

The study of this road project is made by Italian company "Bonifica" which featured four variants, which were selected among alternatives Krraba running neck through a long tunnel and 2.2 km where the tunnels predict some other more little along the way, with total length 3260 m of tunnels and 14 underpasses and overpasses to make it possible not to cut off the road. The highway has several tunnels. The project provides for overpasses at km 5.4, the Mullet, at 9 km, 14 km Berzhite and in Krrabė, and two rrethqarkullime near Elbasan km 30.38 and 31.17 corresponding to the railway overpass.

From Tirana to exit Mullet, area economic and tourist potential for the capital, represents the importance of building a genuine urban highway, which in the first half, about 2.6 miles will be highway with two travel lanes, an emergency lane, a public service lane and a bicycle. Time travel is expected to shrink by more than one hour, 18 minutes, while building the road will cut nearly three times the cost, which translated into monetary value, estimated saving of seven euro for the vehicle. / Telegraph /

It seems that SH1 is upgraded to dual carriageway between Milot and Tiranė, however, it is not a motorway (lacks full grade-separation). Is this road to be a part of A1 or will the motorway to Durrės be built on a completely new alignment?

Also: what is the current status of A1 beyond Kukės. Is it opened to the Kosovar border?

Whole SH1(Tiranė-Shkodėr) will be upgraded into 4 lanes.And maybe back then they will call it A2 and not SH1 anymore.Milot-Tiranė is not part of A1.A1 is just Milot-Morinė(Rep.of Kosova border).

Construction of Tiranė-Elbasan motorway is expected to start in late April - early May.
7 of the 13 selected companies have already presented economic offers. The winner will be announced 2 weeks from now.

Will it be comparable to A1? Because there are also many dual carriageways in Albania without full grade-separation (like SH 1) which look like motorways between interchanges.

It looks like they have E-roads in Albania. When did they introduced E-roads in Albania? Do they have any E-road signs in Albania?

What is the numbers of the Albanian E-roads?

International Routes
In 2006, Albania joined the E-road cooperation but it has not ratified the AGR (European Agreement on Main International Traffic Arteries) treaty[3]. Thus, no E-Routes pass through the country. The following European routes only formally pass through the country (information in parentheses is tentative):
E86: (Korēa) - Kristalopigi – Flórina – Vévi – Géfira
E762: Sarajevo – Podgorica – Albania (Hani i Hotit - Shkodėr - Tirana)
E851: Petrovac – Albania (Muriqan - Shkodėr - Pukė - Kukės OR Muriqan - Shkodėr - Milot - Rrėshen - Kukės) – Prizren – Pristina
E852: Ohrid – Albania (Qafė Thanė - Elbasan - Tirana)
E853: Ioannina – Albania (Kakavijė - Gjirokastėr - Fier)

I have several questions about A1:

1. Section Milot - Rubik - Rreshen: This part is built with two lanes, right? How is it signed? As A1 or as SH30? Is that part already finished?

2. Section Kalimash - Kukes - Morina: Is that part also finished? How many lanes? Two or four? And how is it signed? Where does it end? Directly at the border or some meters before? Is there already a new border crossing or still the old one?

3. Is SH52 (Vora - Fushe Kruja) officially part of the A1? And if so, will the SH52 upgraded to four lanes as well (like SH1 Fushe Kruja - Milot)?

4. So you anything new about signing SH1 and SH2 as A1 as well? Is that planned?

Thanks for answering! The informations will be used for Wikipedia articles about A1, SH1, SH2 and SH52!
