The videos are not made at the same place . The second video is showing the current progress of the eastern segment of the ring road , and he is located 5-6 kms away from the first video .

While in the first video , he is located in Tirana East Gate ( as you also noticed ) , where a roundabout exists connecting the western ring road , with the Tirane-Elbasan motorway.

The western part of the ring road is almost complete , and it will connect the Tirane-Elbasan motorway with the Tirane-Durres expressway

Its hard to abtain useful information from albania. But the planning map i saw, did show the western ring road project ending in Sauk (I/C Tirane Quender).

But except for the roundabout at TEG you mentioned, there is no difference, the road is labeled E852 and A3 all the way. So that's why i told, that it's maybe an academic question.

In the west the mountain is the cause for the ring road to be so much inside of the city. In the east are more and higher mountains, but they are farer away. So it makes sense to start the eastern ring there.

A Roundabout is not such an good idea to connect this maybe most important motorways/expressways of Albania. How roundabouts could be one can see at Suare of Karl Topia and Eagle square (I Drove there ). The finished western ring road would maybe at least relieve the first.

Will the roundabout at TEG stay like it is?
If you have any documents about the western or eastern ring road, i would be happy.

I you think of a ring, it makes sense to think that the western and eastern segment meet at TEG, Even as they are very different. But thats just definition. If there is ans officioal definition its often hard to find it out. So if you have any information....

I fail to see the reason of your confusion , because this matter is simple in nature . The Tirane- Elbasan motorway is connected to Tirana's ring road , which is u/c, of which the western part of the ring road is almost complete , and the eastern part of it ( relative to the Tirane-Elbasan motorway ) is u/c .

The first video is showing the Tirane-Elbasan motorway , and more specifically exactly where it ends .

While the second video is showing the eastern part of the ring road ( relative to the motorway ) .

These are, I presume, the first E road signs in Albania? Albania, of course, not having any E Roads officially defined as running inside its borders (though the E851 has two border points).

Quite why it is E852, rather than E86 running all the way to Tirane and Durres, beats me - why have a more-important 2-digit road end on a 3-digit road that then goes to the nations' capital?

Personally, if I was Albania, I'd have the following as a start
E86: Durres - Tirane - Elbasan - Lin - Korce - Kristallopigi (Greece border): SH2-A3-SH3
E762: Hani I Hotit (Montenegro border) - Shkoder - Lac - Tirana: SH1
E851: Dodaj (Montenegro border) - Shkoder - Lac - Vermice (Kosovo border): SH41-SH1-A1-SH5
E852: Kjafasan (Macedonia border) - Lin: SH9
E853: Durres - Fier - Kakavia (Greece border): SH4

And if you wanted, the E852 could go to Vlore via SH3/E86, Elbasan, SH7, SH4/E853 and the A2.

And ideally, E851 would be a rerouted E80 with Montenegro and Kosovo agreeing to that, and Greece agreed to putting the E55 on their A5 (rather than their coast road), SH4 can be part of E55, rather than E853.

How far are they at the construction work on the A2 (bypass of Fier) and the A3 (Tirana-Elbasan) ?

On A3 work is progressing slowly. On A2 and Vlore by-pass work has stopped completely. The government has terminated the contract with Serenissima as it owes 17 million euros to the Albanian subcontractors. Soon a new tender will take place to pick a new company for the continuation of work on those two segments.

What is the current condition of SH20 - which parts has asphalt and which not? Is it possible to go through it by normal car?

According to it:
http://balkanyrudej.pl/trasa-sh20-ro...jonie-kelmend/

It should be completed now (100% of asphalt) but I am not sure.

Are the bridges between Kalimash and Morina (A1) and the motorway cross at Fushe Milot finished? And when start expanding the part between Milot and Kalimash four-lane? And is now the A3 (Elbasan-Tirana) completely four-lane passable?

No and no. The first ones are not even started afaik. I don't know what the problem with the interchange is at all.

There's not even a plan for it in the last years. I don't think that you will see something there soon.

No! A short part is expected to open sometime soon or maybe was already opened. However, the gap before the tunnel will remain.
