Correct?
That is correct . There are some segments here and there that are also open between Tirane Mushqeta . Everything will be complete in 4 to 5 months though .

P.S Tirana elbasan (A3) is a 2 x 2 plus emergency lanes

I guess it is only from Mullet to Ibe e Poshtme, about 5km, isn't it?

That first lot ( Elbasan till the tunnels and including them ) , yes it is officially open for circulation and all the works are 100 % finished .

Reason being is that already you save around 1 hour if not more , because you dont have to pass from the old windy mountainous ex communist road that was connecting these 2 cities .

P.S Where the motorway finishes in Elbasan a new 60km national road (1x1 wide lanes plus emergency ) has started construction ( Qukes Qafe ploce ) , with a 1 km tunnel included in the project as well .

So the trip from Tirana to the Macedonian border will only take around max 1 hour , and to the Greek Border max 2 hours.

This will bring much closer to Tirana all the south cities ( such as pogradec , korca , erseke etc ) as well with the most south east city of albania being max 1 and half hour far .

I don't want to drive there, it's just for my damn list .

A3: Mushqeta – Elbasan 12 ~14km (April 2011 to 31th July 2014) – ? – map
A3: Tirana – Mushqeta 12 ~17km (April 2011 to December 2014) – ? – map
SH4: Kavaje – Rrogozhine 12 ~20km (2010 to Late 2014) – ? – map
A4: Mbrostar Ura – Levan 12 22km (2013 to ?) – ? – map

I would also split sections if a first carriageway would already be in service.

Then you should also include > A4 ( Fier bypass ) which is a motorway standart 25 km segment and construction has started some months ago .

It starts where the A2 finishes ( you have photos of the A2 posted by me ) in the previous page .

This is 100 % true , because it was on the news where some local inhabitants were protesting because they were complaining that the state bought it from them for a very low price

For more information of the A2 you can visit the albanian section

P.S just noticed that you have actually written that as well ( Mbrostar Ura to Levan ) . My bad

Elbasan-Rrogozhine is passable,only if you want to avoid Elbasan-Tirane-Durres section and then toward Fier into south.Your route is a bit shorter from what i wrote,but anyway its up to you.

In late August I am planning a road trip thru Albania and I would like to come into Albania from Montenegro on road SH20 and then in Koplik I would like to go towards Theth. From previous posts i couldnt figure it out if it is possible to drive on road SH20 all the way and if someone know in what condition is the road SH21 from Boge to Theth? (And if it is imposible to drive there with 2WD car, or if there is some public transport?)

Ok,but the question is to avoid Tiranė-Durrės section or not.If he want to go faster and shorter,then he should.

Podgorica , Han i hotit , Shkoder , Fush kruje ( then you turn to Durres via the airport road ) , Durres , Fier , Vlore , Saranda .

OR when you go to Fier , then take the Fier levan road to Gjirokastra , and from Gjirokastra to Saranda .

These are the two options you have .

The second option takes 30 minutes less , but i always strongly advice for the first route , because of the tremendous views of the albanian coast that you will have after vlore .

P.S The second route has less traffic . But you will really miss some fabulous scenery if you take the second route . So is up to you
