neah, you cannot see it in movement. and brightness isn't the prove. actually, thermoplastic marks always seem to be yellowish, while normal sprayed colour is white as snow while it is new.
i agree about thermoplastic marks at places with large traffic, but otherwise there is no need for them

It depents, Thermoplast markings are yellowish, when they are dirty. When they are new, they are also snow white. They do not glow as much as fasade paint, but still glow a lot when reflected. Look at new Struma motorway pics, definatly thermoplast markings, but they were white. And for me IMO Thermplast markigns are a must on every road. Bulgaria does not use them everywhere but at most places and IMO they are white when new aswell. Only when some dirt comes on them they get yellow. But in each country it is different. I doubt Albania used normal markings on motorways, if they did, that is very wrong, on raods with high speed such markings do not have to be used, just like Macedonia. Latest motorways with fasade paint markings, this is substandart and dumb. Hungary uses Thermoplast acustic markings, just as germany and I think austria aswell.

Thermoplast markings are never so shiny as normal markings even when new. They are used for durability and not for excellent shine. And as Albania obviously uses Italian codes for road construction I doubt they use them as Italy does not use thermoplast markings.

I see, no problem, then I was wrong.

Hello guys,

I know this is not the proper place to ask this but I am really short on time. I need to go to Corfu from Podgorica urgently and my car is broken down, so I'll have to use the buses. I've been searching internet but I wasn't able to find any info on buses leaving from Shkoder to Greece (Athens). I would step down in Ioannina and then continue to Igoumenitsa.

Could anybody tell me if there is any info available on the net about buses that are leaving from Shkoder? Also those from Greece to Tirana or Shkoder?

I've travelled through Albania many times (more than 40), either to go to Macedonia, Greece or Turkey, but every time with my car, and I know Albanian (main) roads pretty well. I've been following this thread with great attention and I must admit you are doing a good job to keep it as much detailed as possible.

My advice would be to go to Tirana , and take one of the buses that go from Tirana to athens ( the agencies are close to the main square of Tirana ) , and ask from the Driver to leave you in Ioanina . Ask around there the locals and they will provide you with more information of how to get to Corfu .

From shkoder to Tirana , there are many buses and mini-buses that come and go on a daily basis . I cannot provide though any more information about that . But i am sure is not gonna be hard to find one .

P.S the buses from Tirana to greece are departing in the afternoon around 4-5 o clock . And the bus needs 5-6 hours to get to ioanina .

Thank you very much Illyrian Patriot. It's gonna be easier to get from Ioannina to Igoumenitsa with KTEL and then with ferry to Corfu. The bus routes through Albania were unknown to me.
Most probably I'll do as you have suggested. Many thanks.

Austria doesn't use them.
Substandard, are you serious?!

It's the bypass of Kukes in the north of Albania close to Kosovar border. Immediately after that brigde in the end of the footage is the highway Kukes - Durres.

However, its an old footage, nowdays that ring road has crashbarriers in the middle and on the sides although bridges are not all completed and are still just two lanes one for each direction.

Tirana Ring Road Alignment

Looks to me like those maps of the ring road alignment are not correct in the Sauk area. The road is currently cutting directly from the artificial lake to the intersection near TEG. There will be no direct connection to Rruga Elbasan near the National Cemetery. The work is moving along nicely though!

AFAIK,the contractor is Albanian.

The first map is from the road network of Tirana.The red line is the outer ring road.



These two shows the section of the ring road that will be connected with Tirane-Elbasan motorway.

Looks like it will run through densely-populated areas.

I think it cuts Sauk in the middle. Probably going to make a roundabout there.
