* 1x2 = two-lane road with no barrier between the lanes
* 2x1 = two-lane road with a barrier between the lanes

The latter road type is not very common.

Its one lane in each direction (one by one) not one multiplies with one. You can put it as well as 1+1. Its about road lanes not mathematics, right?

2X1 or 2+1 would be rather road that in one direction has two lanes (typically in uphill), while in the opposite direction one lane.

It can be what you are saying that the first number shows the carriageway(s) while the second number shows number of lanes in that carriageway, but I did not see that definition anywhere.. And, how would be described the road that in one direction has two lanes, while in the opposite direction one lane, 1X3?

Yep 1x3. (2+1 if divided) 1x4 is also used for 4-lane but undivided roads. Some use 2+2 instead of 2x2 but I think the distinction is too limited then.

normally (imho) that would be called

1x2 - 2x1 (or 1+1) - 1x3
2x2 (or 2+2) - 1x4 - 2x3 (or 3+3)

x or + do not mark a type of separation of directions, but are used as mathematical signs. 1x2 is one time 2 lanes; 1+2 is (1x1 + 1x2) is one time one lane and one time two lanes.

Sadly, "believing" is a bit speculative Are there any official documents about it?

At least the motorway part of SH1 seems now be signed as A1 (see my last posting)

It has a different road number sign though. But the number is the same (A1).

So, at least they change the road numbering there... Interesting. I wonder if SH2 was also already resigned.

But that doesn't help us with A2

Sorry for OT, I have a question: Based on recent highway construction in Albania and Kosovo, what would be the travel time between Shkoder and Pristina, and Tirana and Pristina?

Any fresh experience?

Thanks for the answer, keep up the good work...

It took me 3:20 hours to travel from Shkoder to Prishtina a week ago. Traffic was moderate, no crowds at the border to speak of. If you drive a little faster (I drove mostly 110-130km/h in the motorways, respecting the speed limits), you might get there in 3h.

I think Shkoder is further to Prishtina than Tirana. Tirana also is better connected with the motorway so it should take considerably less... Maybe two to two and half hours from Tirana to Prishtina.

From Prishtina exit to entrance of Tirana (250 km), not from Prishtina center to Tirana center, it may take from two and a half hours up to three hours. It depends how congested traffic in Duhlas Pass is (between Shtime and Duhėl) and how long the line in the border is.

When the motorway is finished in Kosovo, it will not take more than two and a half of hours from PR to TR.
