A2 motorway or Levan-Vlorė links a commune in Fier country with Vlorė.

Already finished



The same road is linked with Levan-Tepelenė and with another seaside road to be build.

The link between town of Fier and A2 will made by the big bypass of Fier which is u/c.

The plans are that whole Shkodėr-Vlorė..which mean from north west Albania toward south to be expanded into 4 lanes and almost is done.

A map just to create the idea.(Coudn't find a better one)

P.S The best part is after the 8th minute or so and it gets progressively better as it goes towards the end , and a bit in the beginning showing the Kakavia-Gjirokaster national road
Very interesting to watch. Thank you for posting.

If they turn the road into a 4 lane motorway (or expressway) up to Shkoder, that is pretty much enough for Albania, as a major part of the Adriatic Motorway will be completed. But what about the south part?
I think that it would be a good idea if the Kakavia-Tepelene-Vlore route was reconstructed as a motorway.......I suggest that because the construction of a Kakavia-Tepelene-Berat-Elbasan route seems completely unlikely.....

There's not too much traffic on Kakavia-Tepelenė-Vlorė even that is a main national road from greek border and inner ALB.Almost 70% of the population lives in the area between Shkodėr-Tiranė-Durrės-Vlorė from which comes the main traffic in ALB.

In the future maybe after a concrete project of the southern axle to link Elbasan with Berat,Tepelenė and more toward border with Greece.This can happen after 10-15 years.

There's also a project(still in alpha stage) to build by the Adriatic cost that will link Velipojė(near Shkodėr) with town of Vlorė.

IMO,more urgent is to start works on Elbasan-Librazhd-Pogradec(Toward border with Fyrom) than the Kakavia route.

They should start works on this section as it really needs.

Yes, that's why I mentioned a motorway between Tirane-Shkoder motorway......and I think that building the Elbasan-Pogradec motorway is also quite essential....but isn't the Arber highway already U/C???

Imo,works there on ELB-Pogradec are urgent,but there's no money due to 5-6 roads build at the same time.

Yes,but that's how things works here unfortunately.A lot of moneys were spent there and now another grant with mil of $ will be spent again.On taxpayers shoulders as always.

Section Bulqizė-Shupenzė is already finished and works in the tunnel were moving foward.







And the tunnel



Now,after the ioan from the chinese bank,whole project will be re-planned.

'Arbėri' highway wasn't meant to have 4 lanes due to the lack of traffic,but now it will expanded into 2+2.

Thanks! Good to know.
Now that Serbia gets better coverage, I hoped that also Albania, Macedonia and Bosnia get it

Good to read this kind of news for the Arber highway, this road is of huge need by Albania.....I look forward to seeing new motorway projects, they are necessary.

Since we practically almost have no borders, this will probably be done simultaniously.
