No, the news says that the works have just started again. There is no problem now and works will end in six months time

What can you tell me about the roads from Debar to Prizren, via Albania?
Google Maps suggests -> http://goo.gl/maps/NJYbm

The road via Skopje or Tetovo, I think is faster, I'm curious about the one through Albania though

The road through the mountains between Peshkopi and Kukes (the one Google shows) was rebuilt last year or the year before. It's in good shape. Debar-Peshkopi is also ok and from Kukes you have the new motorway to Prizren.

I don't think that the road via Skopje is faster to Prizren.

Some more questions:

1. Which option do you recommend me to cross into Albania coming from Budva, Montenegro? Muriqan or Hani i Hotit? I plan to make a stop in Shkodėr and then continue to Tirana, where to stay over night. What road would you recommend and how much time would it take? Do you have some pictures/videos?

2. I heard driving in Tirana can be an adventure for people not used to it, what advices can you give me? Maybe I will ask more questions in the Albanian section to not fill this thread with offtopic.

3. How is the road from Tirana to Tushemisht/St. Naum, Macedonia?
Google Maps recommends this -> http://goo.gl/maps/Y7j6H and says it takes around 2 hours. Should I plan much more time?
Do you have some pictures/videos?

Or is the option to cross into Macedonia at Border Qafė Thanė better?

Thanks!

1) Han i Hotit , the road from Han i hotit to Shkoder just finished reconstruction . The road on the side of Montenegro is better via that way as well .


Here is a video , just after passing the Border to the Albanian side .



2) Well respect just the speed limits , other than that you will be fine . Driving is the same as everywhere else in the Balkans ...

3) That is the right route , you did see that route in the timelapse video i showed you up to Elbasan ( via the Tirana Elbasa motorway ) . After that is a normal wide 1 x 1 national road , with speed limits from 60 to 80 kms . I believe in 2 hours and 30 minutes you will be there , even less .

I am putting it here as well , just in case someone else is interested in the same route .

To reach Vlorė you don't have to follow the Tepelenė route.If u live in Arta, is shorter from Sarandė and through coast to reach Vlorė and not going around from Tepelenė as it will take a few more hours.
