According to this official page there are not many motorways currently in construction. Many others are at the moment only highway projects.

Highway designs vary widely and can range from a two-lane road without margins to a multi-lane, grade separated freeway. In law the word highway is often used as a legal term to denote any public road, ranging from freeways to dirt tracks.
Highway:


Motorway:

A highway can also mean an important road, that's why it's not necessarily a motorway.
@Chris: where exactly is that upper pic taken?

Sorry, but the only real motorway in construction right now seems to be Durres-Kukes motorway, reading all official news. Can you prove me, that I'm wrong?
Also, regarding the state of Albanian size and economy, it would be most doubtful, that there would be 750 km of motorways in construction right now. Just isn't realistic.

Wikipedia is not necessarily a reliable source. Plenty of people like here on SSC which will do anything to promote their country and make it look good.

Do you even know what that page is about?
This is why ignorant people should refrain from expressing their ignorant opinions. Especially when they don't even understand the albanian language.

It has been explained here before what highway and motorway (all referred as highways) segments are under construction. Take a minute or two to see where I've posted such information. Or alternatively, since you seem to understand albanian have a look in this forum http://www.urbania21.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=15

Highway projects currently under construction!

1. Durrės - Morinė (Rrėshen-Kalimash segment)
2. Korēė – Qafė Plloēė
3. Levan - Vlorė
4. Lushnje - Fier (still not completed)

The existing Tiranė - Durrės highway will be renovated and extended to 6 lanes. A 4 lane overpass for Durrės (3 km road length) which will connect it is also planned.

An important project which hasn't been fully discussed here is that of Thumanė-Rrogozhinė. The gov has already approved this planned highway as a concession project. A croatian company seems the likely candidate to get the contract for constructing the 65 km segment at an estimated cost of 350 million euros.
In the first quote, road segments are what you may referr to as highways. In the following quote, highways are what you may referr to as motorways. We just happen to use a different terminology.

The Infrastructure Budget for 2009 is around the ballpark of $1 billion.

All the information listed above has been sourced by the government affiliated agency Albinvest and of course can also be found at Urbania21.com
We have not only newspaper sources but also actual photos of the motorways under construction which you can find in the Urbania forum.
