Is there a legal definition for expressway in Albania? In Bulgaria (introduced in 2012) this a 2x2 road with separate carriageways, limited access and 120 km/m speed limit. The main difference from motorways is that there is no emergency lane.

PS And really no need to be rude in the forum. Terms like motorway/highway/freeway/thruway/autobahn/autostrada/expressway are not so clear arround the world.

In Tirane-Durres expressway the speed limit is 90 km/h, regarding other expressways I think is either 90km/h or 110 km/h if I am not mistaken

Yes, in Albania expressways are defined by law. Speed limit is 90 km/h. In Albanian Law expressway is named "RRUGE INTERURBANE KRYESORE". Traffic sign that shows that expressway begins is the same as for motorways, but blue. Standards required by law for expresways are the same as for motorways, without hard shoulder.

And last but not least, this road is being build for the transit traffic between Skopje and Tirana, since Macedonia long ago has a pretty good road from Gostivar to Debar (and a highway from Gostivar to Skopje). It also opens the port of Drach/Durres for Macedonian goods, but i seriously doubt that it is a real competition to Thessaloniki or Burgas.
Not true, I'm from Dibėr (Debar) and the road between my city until Gostivar sucks like hell, especially Dibėr (Debar) - Mavrovo (until Cerovo village) (intersection Ohrid - Skopje).

From the intersection until Gostivar you can have sometimes two lanes on your side two or three time until Gostivar (pay-oll) but still sucks...

Gostivar - Skopje is highway and it's ok.

About "Arbėr road " Yes the progress seems slow, there are some rumours that the road should be ready fore the next automn.

Correct. In the second picture you can see TEG mall so it's close to there.

This thread is not only for motorways AFAIK..Some of the records used for the report shown on the video above are not from Arberi road.The point is to show where the road will pass,its segments and the nr of population it will serve.

I saw a tunnel with two tubes in that video. Two tubes are only required if the AADT is higher than 20.000 vehicles per day. What's the reason for two tubes in this case? Is it planned (or possible) to add a second carriageway in the future?
