Any estimated opening date for the remaining A3 section?

I have a few questions about the highways in Albania (Excuse me because of my English, I use Google Translator):

A1: Is the section between Kalimash and Morine extended to a highway (build bridges between Kukes and Morine 4-lane, build bridge over the black Drin 4-lane, with green signs)? And if so, when?
When will the expressway between Rreshen and Milot be expanded 4-lane?
When is the motorway crossroad built at Milot? Is the part between Durres and Vore marked with the green signs? Is the part between Vore and Thumane 4-lane extended or even newly built?

A2: When is the bypass of Fier finished? Is then the continuation of the SH2 to Durres also graded to A2? And will there be a continuation of the A2 at Vore to Saranda or even to Greece?

A3: When is the part built between Bradashesh (Elbasan) and the Tirana East Gate? Is the bypass from Tirana still the A3? Are there specific plans for Tepelena, and will there be a continuation to Greece?

SH1: Is it also planned to expand the expressway 4-lane from Thumane to Tirana and from Milot to Shkodra or to Montenegro?

SH2: Is it also planned to expand the express road from Durres to Tirana with green signs?

SH4: Is also planned to expand the expressway 4-lane with green signs (because of the adriatic-ionic highway)?

North-east of the Tirana East Gate, a 4-lane road is being built. Anyone know what?

And are other motorways planned?

I know there are many questions, but I just want to know

A3 update

Here are some relatively recent photos showing the progress of the remaining part of the A3 which is u/c .

Tirana's bypass ( ring road ) update

This is the segment which is u/c , shown from above . A bad quality photo is better than no photo at all .



Alket Islami - FB

In retrospective it is pretty unbelievable that 20 years ago this part of Tirana had no builldings at all lol

That's surely a lot of questions in one go, but I'll try to answer with what I know. Someone more knowledgeable can correct me if I've said something incorrect.

The Kalimash - Morine segment is signposted and has the characteristics of an expressway. There are a total of 7 bridges missing on the segment which should be built by the government and a new 4 lane bridge and some overpasses are to be built by the new concessionaire of A1 up to Fushe-Milot. No timeframe has been defined as of yet.

The government has to extend the segment Rreshen - Fushe-Milot. No timeframe has been defined yet.

I don't have any news on the Fushe-Milot overpass.

Durres - Vore (Tirana) is not part of A1 (not yet at least) although you will often hear in the news about the "Highway of the Nation" Durres - Tirane - Morine. It's actually the SH2 and it's an expressway signposted in blue.

Last question about A1. I think you mean Fushe-Milot - Thumane segment. And it's a widening of SH1 which has been turned to A1.


Quote:
A2: When is the bypass of Fier finished? Is then the continuation of the SH2 to Durres also graded to A2? And will there be a continuation of the A2 at Vore to Saranda or even to Greece?
No news on the Fier bypass.

A2 for now runs from Vlora to Mbrostar with the Fier bypass still under construction.

If the EU has some spare money, sure. There are discussions going on about the Adriatic-Ionian Highway. Until then, i doubt anything will go past Vlora.


Quote:
A3: When is the part built between Bradashesh (Elbasan) and the Tirana East Gate? Is the bypass from Tirana still the A3? Are there specific plans for Tepelena, and will there be a continuation to Greece?
June 2017.

The bypass will probably be incorporated in A3, at least until the ring road is complete.

I don't know what you mean with the last question but this section is a recently reconstructed road, so I don't expect new invesment in it.

Quote:
SH1: Is it also planned to expand the expressway 4-lane from Thumane to Tirana and from Milot to Shkodra or to Montenegro?
I don't know of any plans. I guess the logical thing to do is to widen it from Thumane to Fushe-Kruje and from Fushe-Kruje to Vore and incorporate it on A1 up to Durres. Then the segment from Vore and Tirana, and continuing to Elbasan, could be A3.


Quote:
SH2: Is it also planned to expand the express road from Durres to Tirana with green signs?
I don't know of any.


Quote:
SH4: Is also planned to expand the expressway 4-lane with green signs (because of the adriatic-ionic highway)?
If the Adriatic-Ionian Highway plans get anywhere, sure.

A local road, according to some local forumers. It may be a part of a future wider Tirana ring road.


Quote:

Albania surely needs a better highway network but I don't know of any near future plans to expand the current one.

These are the roads which will be (re)constructed during these next 3 years



Fushė-Krujė – Shkodėr (dublication into a motorway )
Rreshen - Milot ( duplication to motorway standards )
Building of Thumanė – Kashar/Vorė motorway
Building of the bypass of Tepelena
Building of the bypass of Lezha
Building of the bypass of Tirana

It has also been reportet that the Arber road will finally start completion in april of the next year , this being possible due to the investment of a private person .

What about the finishing of the Skoder Bypass?

I suppose for Albanias national interest an better road from vlore through telepen to greece is more important than the route of adriatic-inonian-motorway (its southern part), because there are no big settlements and maybe no big ports, if i am not mistaken. Of course the transnational interest is not always the same. But without massive push from Eu i don't see, why Albania should spent money there. SH4 is flatter of course than coastal SH8.

Of course. The route of Adraitic-Ionian motorway is Fier-Tepelena-Gjirokaster-Kakavia-Ioannina

There's no need to get it close to the sea. Look at A1 in Croatia or the planned motorway in Montenegro. Also Greece builds the A5 mostly away from the sea.

Well i did not yet see anything other than ideas. No final plan. Before there could be a plan how to build, in germany we have the discussion which route might be best. (Linienbestimmung). I did'nt hear anything more than political promises.

So of course the route mentioned seems logical. But there are more than a few cases, where not the logical route was taken.

Further, it's nearly impossible to build a motorway along the Albanian riviera. Of course, it's possible, but it would mainly consist of bridges and tunnels, the costs would be astronomic high. Without any benefit at all

I am surprised to see that Albania is reluctant to build an expressway from Elbasan to Kafasan BCP, heading afterwards in the direction of Skopie. On the other hand, this road is to a big extent a constituent part of the major route towards Kristallopigi and Thessaloniki.

There's simply not enough traffic currently.

On the other hand, a new road from Qukės to Leshnicė as bypass of Lake Ohrid, Pogradec and Qafa Thane is being built (at least construction was started, I don't know the current state). That will shorten the route a lot and the rest of the roads are in good condition.
