Actually yes. It describes biggest motorway project in Albania up-to-date. It is not hard to understand, especially when comparing to Enka and Bechtel pages. There are many other highway project in Albania, but this is, as it looks, currently the only big motorway (autostrada) project in construction.

I agree with the bold part but we also have 3 other motorways currently under construction.
Besides, you won't find many projects of the Durrės - Morinė scale in our region so you aren't saying much.

Is there a motorway planned to the Greek A2? It seems that Albania wants to get some tourism, and the best way to do that is to have a good basic infrastructure (not only roads). I would like to visit Albania some day.

In addition to Durrės - Morinė Corridor there's also:

Corridor VIII (East - West)


Lushnje –Fier 21 km (under construction)
Fier (Levan) –Vlorė 43 km (under construction)
Qafė Thanė – Pogradec – Korēė 64 km

North - South Corridor

Shkodėr – Hani Hotit 39.0 km (will start construction soon)
Fier (Levan) – Tepelenė 71.0 km (will start construction soon)
Tepelenė – Gjirokastėr 23.0 km
Sarandė – Konispol 40.5 km (under construction)

BTW, many dutch tourists visit Albania annually. They prefer the albanian alps valley regions of Theth and Valbona.

Really? I've never heard of anyone going there and I've also never seen ads at travel agencies for Albania. It's good to hear though, I'd like to go there as well

2 million tourists already visited Albania this year
We have countless of travel agencies and tourist sources. We even had advertisement spots on CNN this year.
Also, The New York Times named Albania "The Budget Destination of 2008"

Are there campings in Albania?

Yes, I saw those, looked good.

How's the infrastructure in fuel distribution? I heard some stories that water was/is added to fuels.

Also, I read there's no breakdown service (like ANWB, ADAC, BIHAMK etc)

If that improves, it can be a good holiday destination for a roadtrip. However, I don't think that there are many Dutch driving there (except for freaks like us), the distance is quite big. For a fly destination it is probably already a good destination

There are enough older people who like to drive all around Europe with their camper/caravan. Sometimes even to Morocco or Greece. I want to drive to Greece myself in the next few years too.

According to wikipedia:

Many Albanians are also fluent in English, Italian and Greek.
I can believe the Italian claim, but are many Albanians fluent in English? Italians, Spaniards or French don't even speak English very often, not to mention Albanians. But I could be wrong about this one. Would be great for tourism though.

It's probably wider known on the coasts and Tirana than inland. But i think its a rule of thumb, the smaller the country the better they will be at foreign languages.

Well, I wouldn't say greek is an unknown language because we do have the tiny greek minority in the south but greek is as significant as say chinese.
