The road was rebuild in the last years. Perhaps there are some ongoing works but nothing big. At least not more than in other parts of Albania

I don't know how good the signage is. Expect few to none signs and ask somebody if you are in doubt if you have the right road to Konispol.

When you arrive in Saranda (or better some kind of suburbs), take the left direction on the big roundabout. I doubt that Konispol is signed there but I think Gjirokaster. After a few meters the road to Konispol branches off the road to Gjirokaster to the right. Don't know about signs there. I speak about this place: http://goo.gl/maps/eRKH5

Well, Gaben, stickedy explained you everything. I fully agree with him.

Just couple of points more:
1. If you depart from Kotor, then in MNE you can travel via Cetinje-Podgorica-Bozaj-Hani i Hotit or Bar-Ulcinj-Sukobin-Muriqani. I would maybe prefer the route through Podgorica, because the border crossing Sukobin-Muriqani can be crowdy in the summer.
2. As stickedy pointed out, you need to catch interchange to Vore, before entering Tirana.
3. No problem with Konispol-Mavromati border crossing. I was there 20 days ago, the border crossing is ok and the road is very good.
4. As I know, there is also an option of going to Corfu directly from Saranda. I have been told there was a small ferry departing from Saranda every morning which can take 4 vechicles on board. Some people told me they have used it. Maybe somebody here knows about that. If you catch that ferry you save about 60 km + one border crossing + some money (it is bit cheaper then one from Igoumenitsa). Well, this option might require one night stay in Saranda.
5. If you opt to take the coastal road (Vlore - Saranda) you should bear in mind that this road is very curvy and requires patient drive. It seems to be ok (I haven't been there for long time), but at some places it is (beautiful) serpantine.
6. If you take this road then the worst part is going through the city Fier. However, it is only 5 km going through chaotic city. When I was passing there all potholes have been open. But carefull drive there and no problem.

I am from Podgorica. I like to study geographical maps and to drive around. That's why I know all neighbouring countries quite well (I know Bosnia, Serbia and Croatia better then Albania). Also, I have some friends in Albania (mostly in Shkodra), so sometimes we travel around together. Also, I was driving throughout Europe, ex-USSR and some Arab countries and never used navigation. It is more fun when I try to do it by myself.

Do u understand Albanian?.

They don't say it will be complete,they said it will open for the traffic to avoid some curved and dangerous parts of the actual road.The whole motorway will need 4 months more to finish.

I think those yellow parts doesn't fulfill expresway standards everywhere?
Because there are some 1+1 parts, roundabouts, in-level crossroads, going through towns and villages....

Tirane-Vore-Durres-Fier is all the way what you would call an expressway (2x2 dual carriageway with speed limits of 90-110 km/h and controlled traffic ) . There is no doupt about that .

The only thing is that some segments after Durres are not yet completely finished (around 30 kms Durres - Rrogozhine ) although that segment is finished 90 % and in 1-2 months ( if everything goes as it should be ) ,that segment will be also complete .

You mean 100 m?! because you said that the tunnel has been extended for another km more, the difference between 2.4 to 2.5 km is just one hundred meters and not one kilometer like you said

Do the pictures above show the part from the tunnel to Elbasan? The tunnel is useless if that part isn't finished, no matter if he is ready on June 15 or not...
