But that road was just finished last year and traffic is too low for an upgrade to motorway (and it would be difficult). And building a new motorway there would be waste of money in my opinion.

But maybe the second part would be Elbasan-Berat-Tepelene. That part is long planned and it's about 100 km. It's a missing link in Albania.

That would make sense and both parts would be about 280 km together.

But there's something: Adriatic-Ionian motorway in Montenegro make no real sense west of Podgorica. Without the part in BiH, there is no proper connection. Okay, you have the new road Risan-Zabljak there as a connector, but I doubt traffic would justify a motorway in the middle of nowhere
What about connection with A1 in Croatia? That will make sense after all. Unfortunately few odds in Montenegro for the project, but I think sooner will come Croatia then BiH to border of MNE. Anyway no sooner than 2025

It seems that we will have disagrees between Albania and Montenegro about the Adriatic-Ionian motorway route.

According to this article, in Brussels in April 2015, Albanian Prime Minister Edi Rama and Montenegrin President Djukanovic have agreed that the route of Adriatic-Ionian motorway will pass by Ulcinj and enter in Albania at Velipoje, to continue in Albania by the coastline.

Now, we have news that Rama and Djukanovic have had conflict in Beijing regarding the route, if the route should go by Ulcinj, and to enter in Albania at Velipoje, or to go by Podgorica and to enter in Albania at Hani i Hotit.

"Blue Corridor" Rama crashes in Beijing with Djukanovic for the sake of Ulcinj


Highways Montenegro Albania "Blue Corridor" Rama crashes in Beijing with Djukanovic for the sake of Ulcinj. Blue Corridor is the road to be built next year and will connect Croatia with Greece, passing by Montenegro and Albania. During the summit that was held two days ago in China, the Beijing government agreed to fund a feasibility study by a Chinese company, to provide then all the big construction tender.

But even after the signing of the Memorandum between Albania, Montenegro and the Chinese company "Pacific", they have launched the clash between the governments of Albania and Montenegro for determining the points where the highway will pass. Montenegrin Government requires Blue Corridor pass through the current axis Podgorica highway, which leads the way to Han Hoti passing from the Highland Kingdom.

But Rama has opposed this route, insisting over from Ulcinj. As taught Rama said that it is not nationalism but no way justified the coastal corridor, after passing from the shoreline, Ulcinj-Velipojė then Shėngjin-Patok and so on. While version of Podgorica makes mountain highway.

This detail is important because it will be decided now by Chinese Kopania "Pacific" which will make a feasibility study.
This battle is taking place between the governments of Albania and Montenegro is very important for the city of Ulcinj, which is left in the pocket all of its highway connecting with the Dalmatian coast of the Adriatic Ulcinj and Bojana river spill.

Podgorica intends not to transfer to Ulcinj road is expected to pour in the Albanian city a large number of tourists who flock now only in Budva, while providing big city Montenegrin staggering figure profits from the tourism industry. Until now there has been no mobilization on this issue by the Albanian political parties in Montenegro, especially those of Ulcinj because they are caught up in the clash between himself and quarreling for the elevator to the castle.

Hmm... The original plan was Podgorica - Han i Hotit i Montenegro, see https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikiped..._motorways.JPG and http://www.mek.gov.me/files/1216637502.pdf (page 161 and 149). It's a lot easier terrain in Montenegro on that route for a motorway.

Yes. That's true.

But/but, we have that info from that Ulcinj's (town in Montenegro) News Portal, that Prime Minister of Albania and President of Montenegro agreed motorway to pass by Ulcinj. But, both of them are politicians, and politicians are keen in changing their plans.

In the other hand, we also know that Montenegro has planed to build a motorway in the route Bosna border from Trebinje - Niksic - Podgorica - Hani i Hotit (Albania border from Shkodra).

Also, we all know that Montenegro has planned to build an expressway 2X2 along the coastal line, passing by all the seaside towns in Montenegro.


Now, supposing that the Chinese Company or some Chinese bank is ready to pay all the cost for the motorway and in back to collect road tolls, Chinese might be interested to build motorway by the seaside. This way the motorway would collect all the traffic of Adriatic - Ionian motorway, as well as the local traffic between the Montenegrin seaside towns (which has pretty high AADT, especially during the summer).


If the motorway is going to be build by the seaside, then Montenegro would not have to spend more money on motorways, besides the Bar - Boljare. Unless they are planning to connect Podgorica with Sarajevo.

Surely the most common sense route is to build the motorway by the seaside? An inland route wouldn't do much to change the terribly slow going coastal route, nor would it be particularly well used.

I'm pretty sure that for instance, a bypass of Herceg-Novi could easily take 2 Euro/car to avoid the long, long drive through. Add in another 4 (or whatever the current ferry price is) Euro for Most Verige and another 2 for the run to Tivat, and you've got a high summer toll that should also attract a considerable amount of drivers. People would pay 8 Euro to be able to get to Kotor/Tivat without problems, and another 4 Euro for the relatively easy (terrain wise) run to Budva also wouldn't bother most tourists.

Beyond Budva is the question mark - I'm not sure how many people would be willing to pay tolls to get from Buda to Ulcinj and beyond.

Still, right now for Montenegro, I'd say that the most important thing is to try and get some bypasses in place. Budva needs one badly - a 2x2 bypass as far as Sveti Stefan would be the best place to start.

It's very difficult to build a coastal motorway in Montenegro. It's not only the mountainous terrain and the various settlements but also aspects of landscape protection. Not to speak about the costs for all those needed tunnels and bridges.

Croatia decided against a coastal motorway because of these matters, so it won't be a good idea for Montenegro.

Any info on the Tirana - Elbasan motorway? Also is there a current motorway planned to go from Tirana to Vlore or Saranda?

As far as I know, SH20 road is going to be hard paved all the way to Montengro's border, this year. Do you know, when exact completion date is set up?

Afaik works haven't started yet for the remaining sections. So completing the road this year is impossible.

If I remeber correct, there were some basic works already done last year from Tamara in direction of Selce. But the whole part from Selce to the border is in the state as last years. And it's still not clear if all works are really starting this year. I guess it won't be finished as soon as 2018.

Thanks. Anyway, border crossing on its end is in operation, isn't it? And SH 20 from Tamare is passable for non 4x4 vehicles, even it is quite demanding, am I right?

Yes, the border crossing is in operation at least for 10 years. No problem there. However, I'm not sure if it's open 24 hours, but there's no problem during daylight.

I didn't drove there yet (I'm planning it for this year), but everything I saw about the road, it's unpaved but rather good. So it's okay to drive with a normal car. But it shouldn't be a lowered one

But with every unpaved road, conditions could change if it's raining.

Yes,you are right. It is the SH 71 but i said rural as there are only a few villages along that route with just a few hundred inhabitants. The reason it is being upgraded is the new Hydropower plant being built in Moglice.
