But until where? I saw in the video some gravel stretches where the girls road their bikes, but I couldn't figure it out. How much is planned to be finished next year.
I'm thinking of doing an Albanian road trip next year, maybe September.

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.
Are you sure. check this video from 4:23

Hello, I plan trip to Dubrovnik and Montenegro in September and I want to ask you what do I need to enter Kosovo and Albania respectively? What are vignette taxes for Albania and Kosovo? Is it safe to travel through Kosova or should I take the road through Serbia and Bosnia? Thank you.

There are no tolls in both countries. As EU citizen you need an ID card for Albania and for Kosovo you need an ID card with biometric photo or a passport. And in addition you have to buy a car insurance on the Kosovarian border since the green card is not valid in Kosovo. Travelling through Kosovo is safe, you don't have to worry!

For Albania you just need an ID card for you as a person,the green card for your car is more than enough.Kosova is safe as much is safe Bulgaria and rest of Europe.There are prejudices for unknown places,but nothing to worry or being scared.Just drive carefully and ask police on the roads for assistance if you get lost somewhere and that's all.Till in 2017-2018 there will be no payments for road usage in AL.

Im not sure about taxes in Kosovo for foreigners as things change for us albanians travelling in AL/KS and vice versa.

There are no taxes for foreigners or drivers with foreign plates in Kosovo.

Since you'll be coming from Bulgaria, I'm assuming you'll enter Kosovo through the Hani i Elezit border point with Macedonia. From there you take M2/E65 all the way to Prishtina, and then you take M9/E80 towards Peja. After some 35km on the M9/E80, you need to take the R6 motorway towards the border with Albania. All of this is very clearly marked, and if you follow signage you should have no problems.

In terms of security, it's very safe to drive in Kosovo and since it's the holidays season for Kosovo's diaspora, you will see a lot of cars with foreign plates (mainly CH, D, N, S). Should you have any issues or questions, you can either ask the police or stop in any of the large gas stations (HIB Petrol, Italia Petrol-IP, AL-Petrol, etc.). Should you need to fill up in Kosovo, all of the major gas stations have gasoline, diesel, and natural gas, and accept either cash (Euro) or credit cards.

If you need internet, HIB Petrol has free Wi-Fi and very good coffee and sandwiches as well. Keep in mind that, should you need to fill up your tank in Kosovo, do it before you enter the motorway as there are no rest stops yet (something to do with the government being slow with licensing).

Have a safe trip!

I made it to Theth. Here is the report on the road state after the asphalt ends. There are about 16 kilometers of such a road. When driving back, I timed this section: I needed an hour and a quarter, it wasn't possible to drive faster. The road is suitable for cars with enough space under the body. Galaxy space is about just enough, I touched the ground with body several times.

Thanks for your confirmation! That sounds like the situation I described...

Hi, when was built motorway Tiranė - Durrės? year ? I“m interesting in history of roads. According to me albanian road development is better than Serbia, Bulgaria. It“s miracle like Greece, Croatia, Korea.
By the way, is China dealing with Albania yet? In the past (80s) I saw pics chinese buses, polish vans too. It“s weird.
