There are no plans for the time being for the expansion of that expressway . If you see in the photos above in the previous page , you will notice that there are some aesthetic works on progress on both sides ( so no expansion is planned in the short term )

You will notice also that parallel to the expressway there is also a 1x1 national road , which helps with the traffic , mainly for the businesses that are located there . So in essence it has the capacity of a 3x3 .

As for the numbers of the cars passing per day , i am not aware of any numbers , however it is the busiest road in Albania , and especially in the summer ( because of tourism and returning ex pats , the number of cars increases dramatically ) .

Some years ago was talked for an Qatari company that was going to expand it into a 3*3 motorway,but there's no need to do it as the two parallell secondary roads together with the main road handle the traffic..despite Tiranė-Durrės being the busiest road in the country.

Actually they are working on it.After 2-3 months it will change face totally.

In all honesty i do not thing so , provided that they keep up the intensity that they have now .

What i am not sure yet is if the bridges ( for the pedestrians ) will be replaced as well with more modern ones , although according to the render they should .

I don't doubt that they will do this or at least try to do it, but I doubt that those changes and improvements will be of long continuance.

Just a few examples:
1. Water: Albania is - at least in the summer - a hot and dry country. So somehow all those green spaces, flowers and trees need to be watered somehow or by someone. I have the feeling that this is not thought about well. I know that this works in Tirana center, but a city is not comparable with an inter-city expressway.

2. Trash: There's trash lying everywhere in Albania and I don't see why people shouldn't throw their trash there as well. Don't get me wrong, the trash situation improved noticeable in the past years but it's still a long way to go to get this problem solved and the attitude of the people right. So, in order to keep that green areas clean, there's also someone needed to clean it. At least once a day... And to be honest, there would be many better places in Albania that need to be cleaned than right and left of an expressway.

3. People: I have the feeling that everyone drives and walks where he just thinks that he wants to. Do that several time on those green areas and there won't be any green at all.

So, don't get me wrong, it would be great if the look of that expressway would improve like shown on the pictures - or at least partly - but I doubt that this look will last long. Sadly

You are entitled to your opinion even if it is based on false premises . Let us agree to disagree especially with the trash part , and the 'people will drive on top of the grass 'part.

However there are already some finished parts close to the exit of the Tirane Durres expressway for the TIA airport which is even further from Tirana , and it looks perfect . No one is throwing trash or driving on the grass or on the trees . I mean wtf ?!

Will the Tirana - Durres highway get motorway status after the upgrade?

I do not think so , the works are mostly aesthetic in nature . Although it could be considered as such after the completion of the works .

There are however 2 other motorways under construction at the moment : A3( Tirana Elbasan motorway ) which will finish within the 3 next months , and A4 ( Fier Bypass ) which will finish within 1 year and a half .

In Shkodra, bypass started to be constructed few years ago, but it seems that the works have stopped completely. Still, a huge embarkment of unfinished bypass road/highway serves quite good as a dam that protects the city from floods.
