Levan(Fier)-Vlorė
Construction of Levan–Vlore Section of Pan European Corridor VIII Underway


Project description
and objectives:
:The proposed project will support the construction of a 24km road section from Levan to Vlore, part of the north-south corridor, and Trans-European Corridor VIII.

Civil works will be co-financed with the European Investment Bank (EIB) and the Government of Albania. Donor funds from the Italian Development Cooperation have been provided for the preparation of detailed design and tender documents and supervision consultants.
Total project cost::Estimated EUR 61.2 million
Environmental impact:The project involves construction of a new 24.2 km road with 4-lanes from Levan to Vlore crossing the River Vjosa valley and along the edge of the Narta Lagoon. In accordance with EBRD Environmental Policy, the construction of a new road of four or more lanes, where such new road would be 10 km or more in a continuous length is classified in environmental category A. Moreover, the project is required to be classified as A category because it is to be carried out in a sensitive location within Vjosa-Narta Landscape Protected Area. For the above reasons, the project requires an Environmental Impact Assessment (“EIA”) and public consultation in accordance with the EBRD’s Category A project requirements.

I assume these "4 lane roads" are grade-separated?

well ...the above information does not explain very clear how much lanes this new road will have, but i think it will be an 2x2(2 x 3.75 m).

Great, keep asking, it“s funny, you want to be very sure that they want to add emergency lanes.

I'm curious too, but apparantly nobody knows the answer after asking a dozen times, so you might as well stop asking for it for a while.

Because you see, I want Albania to have European Standard Motorways. I know at least that Durrės - Kukės - Prishtinė will have barriere and emergency lanes, but whats make me curious is the other motorways they are building. We cant call a 4-laned way without emergency lanes and barriere a MOTORWAY. Thats what I want to say. Now I have made my point clear.

That's true, but any improvement to the existing road infrastructure is a good and welcome step.

It's not what you asked, its how youve asked it before, was wrong. Barriers and emergency lanes depend on a few different factors. Emergency lanes are good but barriers arent, imo. I prefer a ditch in the middle to a barrier, for emergency services and police and also the wildlife.

That's correct, but they're mostly relics from the 3rd Reich time and are over 70 years old, and their lack of shoulders as well as their alignement are seen as undesired. Most of these Autobahns get shoulders while they are being reconstructed.

Some newer ones lack shoulders as well, right? A21 or A23 for example. They're quite new AFAIK.

The A21 lacks shoulders at times but is a reconstructed Bundesstraße. I however have to agree with the earlier postings that a road could only be considered a "motorway" if it has shoulders where possible. That would mean a motorway of 20 kilometers lacking shoulders shouldn't be really counted as a motorway-grade road, but say, the lack of shoulders in expensive objects like in tunnels shouldn't disqualify a motorway from being a "motorway".

So in the Albanian case, if these new roads don't have shoulders at bridges or tunnels, but they do have them elsewhere, it should be counted as a full standard motorway.

Ofcourse, a shoulder is not the only standard of a motorway. Perhaps even more important is if slow or unmotorized traffic is not allowed at all times. So no tractors or mules on the motorway.
