I located it a few months ago: http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Krraba-Tunnel

I studied the official documents about the project and therefore I was able locate it fairly accurate.

Here's A3 with those researches: http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Autostrada_A3_(Albanien)

Edit:
Here are the official projects documents: http://www.mppt.gov.al/previewdoc.php?file_id=966

Rene, Im actually pretty dissapointed with the A2.... it is nowhere near the standards of A1 and one can say that it doesn't even meet motorway standards. The hard shoulder (emergency lane) seems very narrow with some exits and enterances have little or no slip lanes. I hope it can be enhanced in the later years when Albania stards building a motorway network.

Maybe motorway status was added after the road was already designed. It looks like a superstrada / dual carriageway type road to me.

Accusing others of trolling is a way of life on this thread. No opinions allowed.

Yes it does look like a motorway. It just seems to me that the emergency lanes are too narrow to accomedate a 120kmh speed limit. I have a problem with there being parking bays every few hundred meters, the driver is encouraged in a way to have the ability to stop. In normal motorway situations, you are not supposed to stop unless in an emergency situation. If Albania is to create a motorway network, it needs to create national motorway standards. I see a big difference between A1 and A2.

It is comunism and not komunism , and i do assure you that i am thinking in many more ways than you can concieve of .

That motorway is just fine , and he should also know that albania has already a motorway network which is being expanded every day . Because he suggested otherwise .

Illyrian, I have been in Albania and driven up and down the country, I have also driven throughout many European countries. I think I am capable of identifying problems and giving reasonable opinions. I can assure that Albania does not have a motorway network. Most of the roads which the government in Albania calls "autostradė" are not what you would internationally call a "motorway". The only international motorway that currently exists in Albania is the 61km stretch between Rrėshen Kalimash of the A1. Even that part of the motorway has a few flaws including the lack of lighting at junctions and the motorway not being closed to public.
