As far as I know the u/c Fier bypass will feature 2 lanes only but it is planned to add a 2nd carriageway and sign it A2 in (remote) future, isn't it?
When will the 1st carriageway be completed?
Does anyone have more information? Are there more motorways or expressways u/c in Albania?

Your given information is correct on which i have to add the 'Arbėri' highway of Tiranė-Dibėr and then toward FYRMKD border,expansion of Fushė Krujė-Milot in 4 lanes and the big bypass of Fier which will link Levan-Fier with A2 motorway.

By the end of may i guess the 90% of work should have done but the 'Aktor' company is working slowly due also to the money problem of our govern.

http://en.aktor.gr/article.asp?catid...pubid=15366523

Govern choose the greek company as they asked for the half of moneys for the motorway in different from the first chosen austrian company which costed much more $.

The outer ring road is also an important section for linking Tirana with A3 motorway and its outskirts.

I thought this is 2-laned only? I want to include grade-separated and access-controlled roads only. They should feature at minimum 4 lanes on 2 carriageways (2x2) but I also accept roads where only one carriageway is built now with space reservation for a 2nd one.

The SH1 is already 4-laned b/n Milot and Fushė Mamurras, isn't it? Is Fushė Mamurras - Fushė Krujė currently u/c? When has the construction been started, what's the announced completion date?

It is already part of my list:
SH4: Mbrostar Ura – Levan 1 22km (2013 to ?) – ? – map

It is also Rrogozhine Kavaje expressway u/c , length aproximately 60 kms , started in 2010 , and hopefully will finish within the next 7 to 8 next months , because 90 % of the work is finished already

Also A4: Mbrostar Ura – Levan 1 22km , is gonna be a motorway

Thanks, but I guess it is about 16km (not 60km) and already 2x2 (OSM), isn't it?

Already part of the list. Will it be dedicated and signed as SH4 or A4?

You are right it will be around 20 kms and not 60 . It was 1 x 1 before , and now they are working on reconstructing it to 2 x 2 expressway .

The Levan Fier will be dedicated and signed as A4 , same parameters as the A2 motorway that is preceding that strech .

Is it a new alignment or just adding a 2nd carriageway? When have the works been started?

Hello to all,
I“m new here..I“m from Bosnia and Herzegowina, but I live in Austria.. In August I want to visit my brother-in-law, he is from Struga/Macedonia. And then I want to drive with my wife to Vlora/Vlore in Albania.
What is the best route with the car from Struga/Macedonia to Vlora/Alabania?

Greetings from Graz

Greetings from Graz
Then the route is Struga > Pogradec > Elbasan > Tirana > Durres > Fier > Vlore

Elbasan Tirana is a motorway ( A3 )under construction but 1 side is open for the cars already , and in august most probably it is going to be complete .

Tirana to Durres is an expressway

Durres to Fier 80 % of this section includes expressways

Fier to Vlore is a motorway ( A2 )

Hope this helps

P.S Dont forget to visit llogara and some of the beaches between Vlora and Saranda as well . I promise u wont regret it . ( If u are curious please visit the albanian section , and go to the photo section , and see the photos from the albanian coast )

Just a preview

2) It is 2 x 2 expressway ( u can find the relevant section thread in the albanian section )

@instantmalbin
thank you for the answer..
One question, the first part Pogradec-Elbasan??You mean i should cross the boarder Qafe Thane/Kjafasan and then further on the road "SH3" Perrenjas-Qukes-Librazhd-Elbasan?

Yes, of course we want to stay some days, 5 or 6 days, in Vlora or just few kilometers south from Vlora. I heard the best of it.

From fyromian border in Qafė Thanė the road will lead you toward in Pogradec and from its outskirts toward Librazhd-Prrenjas and then Elbasan.






[IMG]http://oi50.************/24v8nds.jpg[/IMG]

After reaching Elbasan,you have to choose or to go toward Tirana or to chose the other route,that of Rrogozhinė-Lushnje and then toward south in Fier and Vlorė.

If you need advice from the coastal villages(If you dont preffer to stay in the city),where to stay and what to see you can ask in our forum.The ionian part is the best of what you can get,way cheaper than Greece of Croatia.
