SH21 from Shkodėr Lake to Theth in good state?

According to thethi-guide.com/theth-is-now-accessible-by-normal-car,
the road is since 2014 usable for normal cars. Till Bogė is covered by asphalt, according to photos at panoramio.com and elsewhere. Can somebody confirm this? Thanks

There's asphalt up to the mountain pass beyond Boge. However the road on the other side is quite bad! You can drive it with a normal car, but I wouldn't recommend it to anybody!

Here is a recent video by a Polish tourist up in Theth.

Are you kidding? I've been there and drove that road! It's perfect till Qafa e Thorės, but the remaining section down to Theth is bad. You can drive there with a normal car, but you can't recommend it to everybody. I don't have a problem there, but many, many others will have a problem.

Have a look at that road, the photos are from October 2014 (not made by me!) and there aren't nor were any works since then. It's 16 km like this, not just a few hundred meters.

payment by card

Sorry for the small offtop, but what about card payments at petrol stations in Albania? Is it possible?

And what about condition of the road from Skopje to Elbasan via Ohrid? (Cause the rest part, from Elbasan to Sarande, I've already seen on the previous pages).

Thanks in advance.

The road from Ohrid to Elbasan is good. Most of petrol stations accept only cash (lek or euros) but there are a few who accept cards as well

On most (if not all) stations it's not possible, just cash. If you pay in Euro (possible on almost any station), be careful with the exchange rate. It happened to me four times that they tried to make the rate 1:100 instead of 1:137. It was no problem after I said it and then we made something like 1:130. Just have a look

The road is perfect. A nice road through a very nice landscape. It's a bit hard to find places to overtake, but traffic is not that high. That road was one of the first roads that were rebuilt in Albania.

Thank you for the detailed information. I think I need to learn how to get such photos by myself from panoramio from that big pile of all the photos.

My Ford Galaxy shouldn't have any problems with such a road. I used to drive on such reads when I still had time for mountain trips.

Thank you very much. The videos clearly show the state of the road.

You'll find those pictures on Google Earth! A great source to find pictures of a certain location.

Yes, your car should be fine doing that trip. Have fun in Theth! It's a great place, the landscape is just awesome

Speechless. Northern Albania is one of the most beautiful parts of this continent. Hope the road will be finished up to Vermosh soon.

There's finally at least one layer of asphalt on the road. So it's not finished yet, but it is nearing completion.

Thank you. Looks nice, a 4-lane road. Is it on the entire stretch Pogradec-Lin? I don't understand albanian. Seems that one part is being constructed new.

There's no space for 2x2 for the whole stretch. And I'm not sure if there are really one or more 2x2 parts, perhaps it's just parking space instead.
