Their priorities are probably what they are because Albania wants to connect with regions in neighbouring countries where there's a significant Albanian population. Remember, they first built the motorway to Kosovo, because Kosovo has the largest number of Albanians of them all (almost 2 million).

Says who? The road has a great impact on the economic development of the region and substantially shortens distance from the capital (100 km), not to mention that it also becomes a road link with FYROM moving even closer towards Skopje and Tirana.

I'm not saying that im against this road or new roads,but other sections are more urgent than this one,or only if they decided to give the chrome and copper of Bulqizė to the chinese.Opening 10 roads on the same time when you dont have moneys,will make them years to finish.

Kosovo is a different story,the A1 motorway was planned since 1989,but due to the lack of moneys its construction was postponed.A1 was vital to be build,not only that brings Kosovo to the sea for 3 hours,but also cut it from serbian influence in economic terms.Kosovo can import and use everything it needs from albanian ports in case of need.

On the other side,the 'Arbėri' road have a sad past,with all the moneys spent there,we would have build 2-3 other roads and now the chinese came with an different project from the actual one and everything starts from the beginning.Does it really need to be a motorway?.As there's not too much traffic on that part as A1 takes it all.

No, it doesn't need to be a motorway. The old expressway project would have been sufficient for the needing in the next 10 - 20 years.

I always thought they would continue the old project! This is much better.

Come on, you know I'm biased on this one

It all depends on the method of funding . Said otherwise if that Chinese company will self fund the project and then get their money via tolls , then that is great news . Especially considering the fact that the new project is a motorway .

Personally i am really keen to the idea of this stretch being a motorway , which means that getting to Macedonia from Tirana will be via motorway all the way , and thus much more fast and convenient . Great news indeed !!!

P.S I searched some articles but nothing is stated about the new section being a motorway ? Any links ?

What are the plans for this area? I guess it will be an interchange but how will it look?

I also wonder what they are going to do with all the houses next to the road when it gets finished, for example building local roads or just demolish the houses?

That interchange was started at least 2 years ago and I guess works have stopped at some point or are very slow. There was no progress visible 4 months ago.

I guess most of the houses (if not all) are illegal, so demolishing would be the way to go.

OK, if they are illegal demolishing makes more sense

When will they continue the A1 to Tirana?

The existing A1 is not even fully complete.... It was supposed to directly connect Prishtina with Durrės but the reality is far from the truth. I hope some day they deviate A1 from Tirana Durres highway and build a complete stretch of motorway from Kamėz to Durrės avoiding the existing highway. Same needs to happen in Kosovo where R7 joins M9.

Do you know of any date for completion?

Thanks Dave

No. Afaik big parts of the road are not even tendered yet, so construction won't start soon on that parts and it's difficult terrain, so it will take some time. I don't expect it to finish before 2018. However, you can drive that road, it's unpaved but not that bad (not comparable to Koplik-Theth). And to be honest, if you are in Plav and want to go to Podgorica, I would take it.

When is it planned that Durres-Tirane expressway will be expanded to 3+3 lanes?

Also what is the number of cars passing it every day?
