That pic wouldn't classify as a motorway at all in the Netherlands because there's access from surface streets and sidewalks to the carriageways without controlled acces (ramps).

You also see it in England, on dual carriageway's (A-roads). They're not real motorways though.

That picture is taken from Kamza Overpass Junction which connects to Tiranė - Durrės highway.

ps:There's no need to quote the whole picture, guys. You can just place the url link without the img tags.

@enschede-er: You're absolutely right. And the road conditions in Albania are getting better and better, and regarding the recent discussions, there are quite some motorways U/C

Enschede-er, Durres-Kukes will be finished in June 2009.

The Albania budget for 2009 is 5 Billion USD if im not mistaken and the chunk of that will go for construction of roads.

Quote:
Duke qenė buxheti mė i madh, viti 2009 merr pėrsipėr vėnien nė jetė tė njė sėrė projekteve tė rėndėsishme nė infrastrukturė. Mbi 46 miliardė lekė do tė jetė fondi qė nė total vihet nė shėrbim tė plotė pėr ndėrtimin e rrugėve nacionale, si dhe pėr ujėsjellės kanalizimet.

How much is 46 miliarde Lek in USD dollars?

Not all of 5 billion will go to highways and road but a big chunk of that will go.

That's cool, half-bosnian half-albanian. Now you can cheer for both countries when some construction takes place.

Milliard is a French-derived word meaning the number 1,000,000,000.

According to Yahoo Finance
46,000,000,000 LEK = 474,471,411.40000 USD

Thats 500 million USD the budget for roads and highways only. Which is not bad at all. Enough to build a second motorway or upgrade existing highways.

No , i mean its a lot of money , but its worth building highways for economic stands and etc. you can't always ride on a small road, wich your max limit is 80km/h , so its important to build it

Here they could do with much less enviromental impact: few viaducts more and much less cuttings. Now it looks pretty ugly.
Otherwise interesting motorway.
