It is just an overpass entering Tiranė, shorter than 1 km. And I agree, it looks very good.

The highway Durres - Kukkes - (prishtine) will be better than those motorways now, they will be like coratian and slovenian and austrian highways and a little bit wider for emergency lanes

There's no such highway.
The highway is called Durrės - Morinė and it stops there. Whatever Kosovo builds is an entirely different project that has nothing to do with the one in Albania.

Like I said, there's no such highway. You're speaking about the future Durrės - Prishtinė Corridor which is a symbolic road corridor linking Kosovo's Capital with Albania's Main Port City.
Kosovo is a separate country with a separate road network. Whatever they build there is not part of Albania's road network and neither is it financed by Albania's government.
You need to get your facts straight.

What Albania is missing is barriere on the middle and some amergency lanes. Fier - Lushnje is an example about what I mean. Take a look at the Croatian highway and the Albanian one: Bigg differences.

What I miss on albanian motorways are:
1. Some plants between the barriers
2."Good" overpasses for pedestrians and other roads
3. Own discription for the motorways
4. Bigger and more signs
5. Emergency lanes
6. Better road surface marking
These problems aren“t so big but i don“t know why our ministry isn“t doing something...

That's what Bechtel Enka had on their site for the finish date. Don't believe me, believe them.

Fier-Lushnje has not been finished yet. How can you say it doesn't have a middle barrier when the road is not yet finished? Comparisons with other countries is also uncalled for.

The road will be up to European standards. It has no emergency lane but then again if you drove in the old road you would know that this is a 350% improvement.

Very nice photos DanMs!! I think they can built the emergency lanes later maybe in two years, but it“s important that the roads are getting rebuilt


Some days ago I saw at tvsh news the levan-vlore part, the roadway was generally finished ( the first layers of sand). I think it will be finished in 2010( i think the deadline was in 2010)

Kosovo will start building its motorway in 2009. It will be Prishtine - Prizren - Morine - Merdare. Morine is in the border with Albania and Merdare is in the border with Serbia. In Albania it will connect with the Durres-Kukes motorway, and in Merdare it will connect with Corridor X.
