Rrogozhine to Fier ( SH4 ) - 40 kms of drive via expressway



The whole expressway/motorway network from Vlora to Tirana is around 230 kms . With the completion of the A4 motorway that is getting built right now the distance from Tirana to Vlora will be around 2 hours in a route that is 100 % expressways or motorways .

Can tourists coming by car with no knowledge of Albanian language successfully get around with driving in the country? (I mean the major tourist routes, not some lost mountain roads).
Can road tolls be paid by major credit cards?
Should nighttime driving be avoided whenever possible, or is it not a specific problem on the major routes?
Any special requirements for a Western European-registered vehicle? (apart from insurance green card and suchlike).

Yes, of course. or at least like any other country. The signing is quite good nowadays, so you don't have to ask for the way. And the rest is possible somehow. Albanians are very friendly, so you will come along.

There are no tolled roards right now. The ferries in Albania (if you choose one) are paid cash with Lek or Euro).

It's not a real problem, I've done it a few weeks ago last time. But you should drive carefully and pay attention especially if there's something before you that could look like construction works.

No, nothing.

A2 Motorway Fier - Vlore

This is the A2 motorway finished in 2012 , connecting Fier to Vlore . Currently -where the motorway starts in this video- works are underway for the A4 motorway stretch which is going to bypass the city of Fier .

I think this is the only video out there showing this part of Albania

Hello fellows
I would like to ask 2 questions:
1)What is the progress of the Arber Highway?
Are there any new pics from its construction?
2)As of now, are there any plans to expand the A3 motorway south to the Greek border?

And by the way, are there any new motorways or expressways currently in planning stages?

Whoever wants, may answer my questions
Thank you

1. There is currently no progress since there are ongoing talks with the new Chinese partners about the details of financing the project.
2. As far as I know, it's planned to expand the A3 from Elbasan to Tepelena (over Berat). However, also as far as I know, there aren't any specific plans so far.

There's a new road being build anytime soon from Qukes to Leshnice, avoiding Lake Ohrid and Pogradec. It will be located there: https://goo.gl/maps/CMCoM
I guess it maybe could be classfied as 1x1 expressway.

No other plans known beside the bypass of Vlora.

Hi there.

1)The Chinese company has imposed some rules and i think that the deal will be broken .They need a basic traffic of 7.000 cars per day,otherwise govern have to pay for the missing car trafdic to them.That traffic is impossible as A1 motorway nearby takes the highest number of cars.There's a video on albanian forum,i'll post here tomorrow.

2)A3 will reach Berat and Pėrmet near greek border but we dont know if they will link Pėrmet or change the route toward Gjirokastėr toward Greece.Maybe later it will be clear everything.

No data for new projects as there are a lot of roads opened for works and still needs to finish.
